  1. Got out early today so heat not a major factor during the round. 87 total with 24 putts. My chipping was solid so only a handful of first putts over 20'. While I am getting used to the soft face, today was a mix of long and short. Never frustrated by the TA2 itself, More a sense of my overthinking of putting in general.
  2. Only 9 today, the heat here in PHX nears unbearable. 81º at first tee, 97º when I teed off on the last hole. Despite this famously dry heat, glad only played 9. I was very happy with the 43. It was also the first time felt the TA played as well, if not slightly better than my usual gamer. As a result of what others have said, I focused on keeping the blade flatter. Almost no hits going left. Not sure if this adjustment was related to the fact that I overshot the hole by >6' once. (Started with 50+ yards). I am developing a real touch. Only 15 putts for this go around.
  3. Finished my 2nd full 18 using the TA 2. The results were well within my 38-40 average putts. I am really getting not only getting used to this putter, but, now am pleased with the results.. I have noticed when properly owned up, I get the line I was trying to obtain. No problems with the < 6', I have the ability to sink most. >6', still have the propensity to hit too long
  4. Played a 9 hole round to see how I might approach more situational putting then simply mat or practice green. I shot alone to spectacular 45 with 24 putts. The three putts were often the aftermath from very poor chips leaving me with 30+ feet to make. Two of the first taps were left well short of the hole. When I attempted to compensate on one, I passed the hole by about 7'. after rimming it out. Hitting on line was less of a problem. I am getting much better with the over all feel of this club. Poor taps were often simple operator error. Still have not fallen in love with the Im
  5. I picked the Impact 2 because it seemed like the between mallet and blade. So far, it feels that way. As mine is different, the TA grip may take a tad more adjusting to. I have club shafts in many colors, I will admit the black fits ok. Spent a few hours at a practice green, and, I am still adjusting to the feel to the club in terms of distance. Have left some short but more long. They seem true in terms of aim; just have not adjusted to the speed feel. Markings at top of club are good. Of the just under 70 taken, I marked 30 as good for a short tap in and 8 as sunk. The remaining saw
  6. MY TOYS! As I wrote earlier, since 1974, I have used only 3 putters. Each took some time to adjust to the size, weight and touch. I was able to get comfortable and learned to exploit them in my game. The old friend, my Canadian Club 1974-1985 I did not play golf at all from 1984 - 2015 My current gamer 2015 - present And now, the Tommy Armour, I am testing
  7. Hello, Mark here. This is my first review not dealing with golf balls. I have not really focused on putters for some time. Putting, in my game, has been a the most positive part of my game since I started playing when LBJ was President. I very rarely go beyond 34 putts per round. For a good many years, I played with a rather generic bullseye style weapon. I was primarily focused on reading greens. I did move away from the bullseye when I was gifted a putter, it was made by or copied from the Acushnet style of 1975. In truth, is was part of a display at my father-in-law’s liquor sto

  10. Finally back doing the golf thing. Without going into a lot of detail, I lost strength in the legs for almost any activity, including standing and balance. After impressive work done by my primary care physician. cardiologist, and great physical therapists, all is in order for doing "golf activities". First re-pairs were adding a stent to a locked artery and doing a LOT of physical therapy. THEN it was decided to put a Watchman in me and all has been cleared in terms of activity. So far I can chip and putt and lightly swing my Orange Whip®. So I did a little of each. Results we

After impressive work done by my primary care physician. cardiologist, and great physical therapists, all is in order for doing "golf activities". So far I can chip and putT and lightly swing my Orange Whip®. So I did a little of each. Results were "OK" for now. All showed severe rust; but, I expected that. Great to be back!
  12. I am FINALLY returning to golf after a 6 month absence due to severe injury, so obviously this would help greatly! Mark Goodyear AZ I have not used a net is a few decades, now I have used a launch monitor at a local range; do not own one
  13. No, did not stop my interest in Golf or this forum. Rather my body decided not to want to play I was forced to stop golf 8 hours after my last 18. For reasons still neither fully explained or understood, my body decided to go from a slightly higher blood pressure to a very low one. Not related in any way to Covid16. As a result, balance was not possible and for over a 4 week period I cold not stand without getting very dizzy, even moving my lower body was quite the challenge. A combination of re-doing my medications from before to now have me well on the way. Therapy 3x a week
  14. It has been quit the while since my last post. There reason I did not post had nothing to do with this review, ball, forum, or anything such as that this product. Regarding this product, it exceeded both the promo stuff from Bridgestone, their evaluation of my swing, and my expectations The switch to Tour B from the e12 I was using is a good one. Drives: average 10 yards Irons 6-9 yards from 6 and 7 Hybrids aout 10 ALL showed improvement in accuracy, loft and result such as wedges. This will be the choice in my golf future! As to me: I was forced to
