    In a previous reply to your post on building your own putter, I mentioned that your work looks great, and I suggested that you try a putter design with a High CG to get the ball rolling as soon as possible for better performance on the greens. Here are a few photos of the putter I designed and built about 15 years ago with a High CG. 

    The two pods above the face of the putter have 60 grains of lead in each pod. The putter is made of Pakka wood, which is very hard  and stands up very well to a lot of use. Putter head weighs 360 grams or so. There are five pieces of lead in the main body of the putter also. Very easy to align the face of the putter to the ball using the light colored inserts in the top surface of the head. The design rolls the ball extremely well, Better than any  name brand putter I've tried over the years.

    I have been following your posts about moving the CG higher, which makes a lot of sense, then you show us this.😮 While delivering performance, lots of work to improve the looks, before I would consider putting this in my bag.

  2. I admit that at times I am a bit slow, and in this case when it comes to strokes gained. I, like you are not a great putter, but lately overall are getting better, 3 putts significantly reducing or in many games eliminated. My yardstick in putting is my total putts. If I have more than 32 it’s a bad day, anything between 29 and 31 is good, and under 29, is a fantastic day. Crosshanded, better at reducing my tendency to swing with my hands, and using a Callaway hickory shafted putter.

  3. Hi All, I have bought and sold and given away many purchases over the years, each time when buying thinking that I would take my game to the next level but in fact I found that they really didn’t make any difference to my game scoring. That is until recently where I put in my bag two new clubs. A Sirxon ZX 3wood and Ping G425 #3 Hybrid. Omg these two clubs have turned my game around. Not being a long hitter, with a tendency to pull these clubs using Cobra’s, Titliest and Muzino 3 woods and hybrids, I am hitting them longer and straighter, hitting more greens or at least close enough to get up and down. And doing it with ease. 

    I cannot say how pleased I am to have these in my bag. What’s worked for you…

  4. It’s an interesting question, I am using an ER2Evnroll and I love it, but I also have 3 other putters. Two of them Scotties, one of which I have just customized. Yet I am not sure when they will see daylight 

    on a course. Could another of my putters really be as good as the ER2? Maybe but I am a little scared to try it. Before the ER2 I was absolutely up for trailing new putters, but not now. So maybe these others are the start of my collection? 

    collect away…

  5. I do like reading all this, loft, gaping, distance, stopping power, and shafts  but! It would seem to me that the real winner is getting fitted, and then practice, practice and practice some more, so you know how far each club goes plus or minus a yard or two, and bring home the bacon.

  6. This popped into my inbox this morning, and along with the typical pages and pages of blurb that is associated with this type of selling, which I detest, here is their claim to fame. 


    According to the test by 8 men, we have the latest and best driver on the market. Okay enough from me, MGS, over to you.

  7. While I really enjoy all the content on MGS, I have hated all the ads popping up. They distorted the reading of the reviews, and became a real annoyance to me. I wasn’t aware of a fix (not that tech savvy) , but a fix there is. So I have down loaded a new search browser called Duck Duck along with Firefox, and for the first time in years I was able to read a complete review ( Callaway Chrome Ball) AD FREE.


    it was a liberating experience I can tell you.

  8. Cobra Giving Poor Head

    Team MGS and everyone, I have recently joined a Facebook cobra group, as I am playing some great Cobra irons. What I have been really surprised to see is the number of reported failures with their driver head. It’s cracking and falling apart. Now what I don’t know is this just a Cobra driver issue or does it happen to other drivers as well. Cobra is replacing these, and boy oh boy these clubs sizzle, but what is it that has the head falling apart on new clubs, quality control , Welding, glue?..

    apprecite any thoughts on why and if it also happens with other manufacturers?
