  1. Hello all! Thought I would chime in on this putter since I've owned it for a few months now. I had been using a Ping Ketch mallet putter since the beginning of the year. (I am relearning the game left handed this year due to a back issue and decided to do so with the putter as well) I had been putting fairly well with it but found it a bit hard to line up and I didn't love it, like all putters I have owned. I saw the testing and reviews on this putter and decided to buy it online sight unseen. I tend to like a longer putter and got it in the 35” model. (Aside: A member of the forum let me know that it could be bought here in Canada on golfworks.ca as we don't have Dick's here, so thank you whoever you were. It was $130 Canadian. It arrived super well packed, maybe better than any other golf club I've ever gotten in the mail. There were two small scratches on the putter shaft. I decided to email golfworks and see what they had to say about it. The service was incredible and the best I've ever had online. They got back to me within an hour with an apology and said they would ship out a new one that day and they had a shipping label for me to return mine with. For me the scratch's weren't a big deal and I offered them to refund me $15-20 and I'd keep it. They did me even better and gave me their cost on it and refunded the difference! Unreal service. I will buy all my grips etc. from them going forward.) Ok, back to the review! The putter fit my eye immediately. I have only ever had one other golf club where I just knew I was going to hit it well and that I'd love it at first sight. It was a Cobra knockoff driver I won in the 90's in a closest to the pin contest. This putter was the same way. I just knew I was going to love it and play well with it. I have played ten rounds so far and only six three putts. My first round with it I swooped and won three skins with a twenty foot putt and did it again later in the round with a thirty five foot putt for three more skins (The guys weren't mocking me anymore for having a Tommy Armour putter after that haha)! I do not normally sink many long putts. My longest previous this year wouldn't have been any longer than fifteen feet. It is really well balanced, the pistol grip is actually very comfortable (I may replace it with something different down the road, we'll see) and I think it looks good. The head cover I can't say the same for, it's pretty ugly and doesn't fit on that well. That's a fairly minor issue, especially considering the price and performance of this putter. On long putts I can easily line it up and it's no different on the short ones. The feel is just right for me, not too firm and not too soft, so they got the insert just right. I just have so much confidence with this thing that I can't say enough about it. I would have paid five times as much if I knew it was going to make this kind of difference in my game. My putting stats show that I've dropped almost four strokes off my rounds. I was averaging thirty six PPR and now it's down to thirty two I took no lessons and used no training aids. It was all the putter. If someone would have told me a putter would shave three to four strokes off my game I would have laughed at you! Bottom line is I love this putter. What a value the guys at Dicks have come up with....they made a world class putter for the $100 range. Thank you MY GOLF SPY, without this site I would never have given this a chance. You saved me spending $400+ on an Evenroll, so thank you guys for that. Looks – 7/10 Feel – 9/10 Alignment – 10/10 Value – 11/10 Overall – 9/10 – I highly, highly recommend this putter.
  2. I got mine the other day, just inside practice so far with the pitching cord. I'm going to try and hit the range with it in the next few days if my pride can take it. I've been striking it horrible for almost 2 months now. I can barely fly my 7i 90 yards. Learning left handed has been really tough but if this thing helps me you know it's legit. I haven't hit a solid shot in 6 weeks at least.
  3. Been enjoying the NX9 a lot. I'm thinking of trying to use it with my push cart (magnet). Just gotta figure out a spot...
  4. I am considering getting this too. Glad to hear the feedback is pretty good.
  5. James/Alberta Canada Handicap - 34 Current irons - 2016 Apex Callaway Carry distance of 7i - 125 yards Thanks guys!
  6. Hi, We didn't stay at the lodge but we did eat there. Great food and the view is spectacular. Just an uncredible course too!
  7. Well let us know how it goes please. Kale seemed like a good guy for sure, just not really into what he was doing in my opinion. That's a good idea about the Titleist fitting events.
  8. Then it's not just me. Someone needs to open a proper shop here.
  9. I booked an iron fitting with them. I am relearning the game left handed and just bought a used set earlier in the year. I wanted to see if they were spec'd correctly for me. If not I was open to buying new clubs. They used a lie board which I found out they should never use. (Its thickness changes the ball hight which can change the lie angle) The guy that fit me just had me hit maybe a dozen balls. 20 max. All with the 7i. He said I could use a stiff shaft and that I was standard/standard. That was it. Over in 15 minutes. He didn't get me to try different shafts or clubs at all. I found out some of my irons were cut down for some reason so they added shims in to get my length back to standard length. When I picked them up they were filthy. They didn't clean off the solvent or glue. For some reason there was grease on them and it got on me. For what I paid at least wipe them down. Then out of the four clubs they added shims to my 6i shim came loose a month later and then my 7i a month after that. Just shoddy work and although they fixed them for free I am not impressed. Oh I also asked him if they check all the sets they order in to make sure the loft and lie is correct to the spec ordered and he said no because it would take all day to do as they get about a dozen sets in a day. That is nonsense. Who is the guy that is doing the fitting? The guy that did mine and the repairs was Kale. Nice guy but no passion at all. I was excited to get fit and I asked him if he loved what he does for a living and he just kind of shrugged. I can guarantee if I had a fitting like the guy in the video I posted did, I would have bought a new set that day.
  10. Hey all, Does anyone here know of a good club fitter in Calgary? I have been let down at Ted and Dave's, it takes several days to get a response from any of the others I've contacted. It's like they don't care if you use them or not. I get not getting back over the weekend but 4 or 5 days to someone looking to get fit? Or no response at all to a phone message? The customer service is terrible here for some reason. There is a huge opportunity in Calgary for a fitter that gives a s*** about their customers. Any suggestions are appreciated guys! I saw this video and it blew away my experience of being fit in the past. This is what I'd like to experience. Starts around 2:30 if you want to skip ahead. 4:08 it gets really good. I'm not saying that he's bang on with everything but no doubt he cares about his customers. I found some of the stuff he is talking about pretty surprising. Thanks
