Have you ever wondered about putting side saddle and your name is not Sam Snead? Well there are putters out there that give you a chance to rock your world with a totally different stroke. Of course you have the old belly putters and or chest putters aka titty putters which by the way are still legal, if you don't press on your belly or titties. You still have to look side ways down the line with those two. With the side saddle style you are directly facing your target which places both of your eyeballs squarely down the line. Good stuff! Especially if you have a crick in your neck from your old lady smacking ya with a frying pan. In the next few weeks I will be giving you my thoughts good or bad on how this putter works for a north Georgia country boy. I'm going to warn you up front my grammar at times would have Grandma Gertrude dropping her false teeth on more than one occasion. Anyways hang on and let's fire this sucker up! The version (GP) that I will be reviewing comes from Mr. Patrice Dionne. Watching his videos you can tell this style putter is not his first rodeo. He rolls the rock extremely well so if you have time you might check out his style. The putter is very basic and simplistic with design. Nothing but a couple lines to help frame the ball and that's it. It has somewhat of a #7ish look with the two fangs sticking out the back. Works OK with picking up balls. I've had better picker uppers but it will get er done. It's not a wide putter, in fact it's narrow looking down at it so don't be expecting no big foot to jump out at ya. The face has a good looking mill texture to it! Somewhat of a click sound when contacting the ball and some of my videos coming later will give you a hint of what I mean. The bottom simply has the GP logo with Mr Dionne's name. Now the head cover is show nuff uptown with the nice magnetic closure system. Very nice and well made so big thumbs up for you putter cover mothers. You can order these putters to match your height. It's a two grip system which I'm sure you long putter HO's are familiar with. Ok yesterday was my first day on the course with this puppy. I had about thirty minutes on the practice green before teeing up so basically I was raw as a good case of hemorrhoids. Man you talk about stinking up the joint it was nasty! I think I had only two (two putts) and the rest were three jackers and worst. Hell old Uncle Ben's blind mule could have rolled the ball better than I did yesterday. This front face putter's butt was drawing up tighter than Dicks hatband when I walked past a pond. Just a little bit frustrated. Ok so I went home and dug out the videos of ole Patrice Dionne doing his magic. I found out I was putting the ball too far back in my stance. Dumb ole fart! Today was soooooo much better. Not ready to be a demo expert for Mr. Dionne yet but I saw some drastic improvement. Front Nine: Two 3 putts, Five 2 putts, & two 1 putts = 18 Back Nine: Six 2 putts, Two 1 putts & One chip in = 14 Total = 32 I shot 43 + 38 = 81 today using this face on technique. Not bad for day two! If you're looking for more info stay tuned as I will have some videos coming up in the near future.
