    Grand Stranded got a reaction from Josh Parker in L.A.B. DF2.1 Putter   
    Tourney went pretty well. I came in 5th out of 32.
    The morning of the first round I went back and forth on which putter to use. I finally decided to stick with the DF2.1 and I’m glad I did. I’ve been playing it since, and if I had taken it out I don’t know when it would’ve gone back in.
    My only issues with it is from off the green, and I’d have loved if it came with a smaller grip option for lefties.

    So I remember back when we were all waiting for our putters to arrive, we talked about the names we would give them. I think @GolfSpy_CS was the first to name his?
    Well it seems mine was christened yesterday. It isn’t exactly PG, and like most nicknames I didn’t get to pick it, it was given by  my playing partners.
    Apparently when I line the DF2.1 up and I’m getting set to roll a putt I’ve been muttering under my breath “come on you mother f***er, make one”.  
    I now have a M*****F***er in my bag. No use fighting it, the boys have decided that’s the name of my DF2.1, and I have to admit, it kinda fits.

    The ups and downs with the DF are unreal. Lights out on Saturday, yesterday I couldn’t come close to making anything over 4 feet. Every time I think I’m getting into a groove with it… I’m not. 🤷‍♂️
    I had a good front (41) that could’ve been a few better, but I just never felt comfortable over anything. My back nine was a disaster (49) so even though I can’t blame that score on a putter, I will say it hurt me a lot more than it helped.
    The lone bright spot was making a 20 foot birdie putt on 17, which ironically I didn’t even line up. At that point I was just looking to get the round over with and get out of the heat.

    The Double Wide is going back into the bag for a two day tournament tomorrow.
    I’m not having any major issues right now with the DF2.1. but I’m having enough nagging ones to not trust it under pressure in one of the bigger events I’ll play this year.
    I’m having trouble with it on putts from off the green, which is critically important down here, and as I mentioned a few times weeks ago it doesn’t sit anywhere near flat when I take my set up, and I’m tired of worrying about manipulating the head to do so.before each putt.
    The DF2.1 has been terrific from 4’ to 10’ but up and down with everything else. Longer lag speed has gotten much better, but that’s balanced off by a lack of confidence on the short ones, due to the setup issue mentioned above. I find myself worrying too much about the head position, rather than my stroke.
    I need to find out the next two days if this is a me issue, or a DF2.1 issue. The DW was working very well before this test began. If it can still check all the boxes it did before the LAB arrived, I’ll have my answer.
    Stay tuned….

    You could always modify when near kiddos and say it's your "Mother Putter"...that should be clear enough to anyone who plays what it actually is 🙂

    Yesterday was my best round with the DF2.1. I broke 80 and won my flight with 28 points in a quota game!
    I tend to be overly critical of my game, and expect a lot from my putter. For example, I wasn’t overly impressed with my putting yesterday. However when we were back in the clubhouse waiting for the results, my buddy came over and told me two of the guys in my foursome told him “it’s time to stop making fun of John’s putter. He was lights out with it today.”
    I think it says a lot about me and how well this thing is performing when I’m not impressed with my performance, but a 4 and a 7 handicap are. 🤷‍♂️ I’ve got to look at the big picture, and learn to enjoy the good days, rather than look back and try to over analyze any miscues.

    I played 18 two Fridays ago, and didn't have a "great" day - and still only had 34 putts.  Again, not great, but considering I had MULTIPLE long-ish putts burn the edge, it's pretty awesome to see that my "bad" (that's what it felt like during the round) day is pretty much my "better" days pre-DF.  
    I need to work on my approaches - I'm leaving myself WAY longer putts than I need to.  It's just putting a ton of pressure on my putting (that's a confusing sentence to look at).  
    Last week I only got to play 9, as my youngest was sent home from daycare with a fever, and I had to get back home.  It was almost a relief, honestly, as the ONLY good thing about the round was my putting, lol. I had no bogeys...4 pars, 4 doubles and a triple.  I couldn't hit the ball flush to save my life.  Gotta love the bad days...lol.

    For the first 3 weeks I had the Direct Force, I putted lights out. Then weather and family issues kept me off the course for a week, and when I returned my putting had gone to hell. I was at a loss to explain it, but eventually determined that I had resorted to an older hand grip … I was pushing everything. Getting both thumbs down the big grip, and weakening my right hand, brought back my success. Turns out, when looking at the meme I posted at the end of my review, verifies that I have gotten back to what was originally working. Go figure.

    I have to chime in as well. Your experience is your experience. We have a large test group on this one because that’s what LAB wanted. 
     
    Perhaps they have had some issues with customer service and fitting inconsistencies, maybe that’s why they wanted the system tested.  
     
    Regardless it’s important that each of us reflect our experience as accurately as possible for this to be a valid test. So I say accurately report what you are observing. 
     
    You’ve also made me recognize something important. I only volunteer to test things that I’m pretty sure I’d like or would fit my game. I really should volunteer to test stuff that I’m not as certain of in the future. That would be the more interesting test.
