    Used Putters?

    1. What is a good source for purchasing a used putter? 2. Conversely, what is a good source for selling a used putter? Thanks
  2. Couldn’t help but notice the number of players using the claw grip during coverage of the Memorial Tournament ... Finau, Mickelson, Palmer, and quite a few others. How many fellow MGSpiers are using the claw grip themselves? Was the improvement in putting immediate or did the new grip and results take some time? I’m playing early this Thursday and going to give it a run and commit to it the entire 18. I’ve been a left hand down putter for 20+ years and I’ll admit it def feels much different practicing at home. My biggest weakness is lag putting. Any suggestions/advice on how to be successful with the new claw grip?
  3. 61-year-old six handicap. I have taken instruction in person, then followed up online with the same instructor for full swing, and been satisfied. He doesn’t do nearly as much with putting. Wondering if someone has had a good experience with online coaching for putting?
  4. Testers Wanted (4) Is it possible for practice to be fun? Is it possible for a training to make you want to spend extended time “practicing”? Can an affordable putting simulator offer you realistic feedback on your golf game? We mean affordable as in cheaper than some of the current drivers on the market now. Got you're attention yet? Well Read on for a very rare opportunity! ExPutt is an at home indoor putting simulator that offers golfers the ability to practice on a high-quality simulator that until now could only be found in a professional setting. Does it do all the things mentioned earlier? We are going to let four of you tell the MyGolfSpy community. More Pics and Video Here How to Apply In a post below in this thread--DO NOT QUOTE THIS POST--provide the following information. This testing is open to US Residents Only Name/City State How Often do you Practice Putting and How Long? How many 3 putts do you average per round? What interests you most about Exputt from what you have seen or read? We'll be choosing the testers sometime next week, so check back and see if you've been selected!
  5. Fellow Spies, Having injured my back two weeks in a row and putting my SuperSpeed review training on hold, I've had more time to think about putting. My question for you is: How tightly do you grip your putter? I've been experimenting a lot and feel that when I hold the putter loosely (like a 2 on a scale of 1-10) the putter wants to rotate on its own (more natural) vs having to try and rotate it or square it with the hands. Which leads to a different question, do you believe in active squaring of the putter face, or 'natural' (or is there even such a thing)? Looking forward to hearing lots of thoughts.
  6. It's been one of the most talked about training aids this year, and has popped up in use by golfers all over the world, including professional tours. But now you'll get to see real everyday golfers like yourself use the full Putt Out system. They'll use it indoors, they'll use it out doors, they'll use the whole system, they'll use parts of the system independently. You can follow it all in this thread and best of all, you can get direct feedback from them on how it works for them, their likes, dislikes and most importantly see if it has improved their putting. Direct access to their links are below. @Kanoito Stage 1 Stage 2 @HardcoreLooper Stage 1 Stage 2 @Peaksy68 Stage 1 Stage 2 @tommc23 Stage 1 Stage 2 @gaussman1 Stage 1 Stage 2
  7. I just finished this project in time before we started getting some bad weather here and before things started to get shutdown. I still have a couple more things still to do before it reaches its final form but so far I’m really happy with how it has turned out. The putting surface is a 12’x4’ Birdie Ball Mat places on top of a 4” thick platform. Eventually I will be cutting holes in the platform to install full size cups and adding self leveling feet to the platform. The idea is to eventually be able to adjust the base to replicate different breaks so that I can get more practice using Aimpoint and be able to have a space to still teach students during the bad weather months.

  9. Looking to do some putting practice inside. Has anyone ever made their own version of The Putting Board? I love the idea, but not the price tag ($130). The keys to creating this is understanding if there's any arc in the board, and what the angles are for the takeaway and follow-through positions. I'll let you know what I come up with, but thought I'd check if anyone has already created one. Cheers

  11. Hi all, My first post on here. Just wanted to give a quick review of the Forb 12ft home putting mat. i think this is a great Home practice aid with putting. Works on all home floor surfaces and gives a true roll to the ball with it slightly elevated towards the holes which make sure you’re hitting putts with good speed. only negative is it doesn’t have a faint marked yardages on, I have had to sharpie my own 3,6,9ft marks on to gauge the distance I am hitting balls from. Could be improved by having marks put on it and also something in the bottom of the holes to stop the balls going in and bouncing out on tiled surfaces. overall I would give it an 8/10!

  14. I've always liked that quote from Yogi Berra. It also is painfully evident to my golf game that I need to pay more attention to it. I've noticed over the years that I tend to leave more putts short than I roll long. It is something that I haven't paid too much attention to, just aware that I should try to get putts to the hole more often. Watching golf for many many hours this weekend I decided to count how many putts the pro's left short... it turns out, that unless they are outside 25', they don't. They always get it to the hole, go figure. Checking my Shot Scope putting data... I manage to leave 72% !!! of my putts short. This has gone from minor thought in the back of my mind to 5 alarm fire that I need to address now. I have a new goal in golf, 0 putts per round left short. I have to trust that I can make the 4' come back putt. I don't know how many of you out there suffer from this same issue. But I challenge all of you to never leave a putt short. If you need to say it in a very marine sounding voice akin to never leaving a man behind, then please do. Let me know if you can successfully pull this off. Apparently, I am only 14 putts/round from success....
  15. Drive for show putt for dough. Does anybody carry 2 putters? A heavy head putter for stability of face direction on short putts and a lighter one for speed control on long putts?
  16. When putting, especially those long putts.. you can feel and almost bet that you have the right aim.. but the reality is your probably aiming far to the left or right. Would training with laser pointers to check the aim and whether my stroke is a squared one or not actually help? Suppose I can build the right muscle memory at home with practice then carry on on the field with that muscle memory...
  17. Hi guys. I am "89" score man for 7 years. When I stand on green and see the cup, my head turn to chicken's And bawl in the mind "Shoot~ Shoot~ " After few second, I always see the ball on the side of cup. I want to skill up the putting. So I am here~~
  18. A few months ago my father-in-law and I attended the New Jersey Golf Show - the annual golf bargain hunter's dream. We ran across an up-start team socializing a new putter brand which has taken off in Korea. Top Spin Golf - http://www.golftopspin.com/ We were both a little surprised by the feel and roll these putters put on the ball. Has anyone else seen these and tried them? Anyone gaming one?
  19. I'm sure this topic was already discussed. What apps have you found great to use for during your round for shot distances, approach shots, putting slopes, scorecard/handicap, etc.? I want to pick one and upgrade to have the full features this season. I had used 18birdies a little bit last year just to plan shots, keep my score and didn't upgrade, which that alone has been a great help and was an easy app to use. I was just looking at GolfLogix which looks like they have green slopes mapped out which is great for approach and putts which could help cut a few strokes having that knowledge, and I don't think 18birdies does that. GolfLogix looks a bit spammy though and has a lot of pop-up windows, and you have to upgrade to get rid of ads. Not sure if I'm a fan of that. Anybody upgrade GolfLogix? 18birdies? Any recommendations of other ones? What features have you used/appreciated? What benefits have you experienced? I imagine these apps have helped a lot of others out there cut some strokes down knowing distances better and help with reading putts. Thanks!
  20. Since golf started players have been in search of the perfect putting stroke. They are constantly looking for new and advanced technology and more effective methods to improve their putting. There are many factors that have to come together to hit a perfect putt, but all are irrelevant if one is aiming incorrectly. It is thought that over 80% of putting errors are due to aiming the putterface poorly. With other sports where accurate aiming is important (shooting a gun, playing snooker, throwing a dart) one puts their eyes on the target line behind the projectile. This is the best way to accurately gauge where the target is. Aiming a putter to the target is like shooting a gun while looking at the barrel from the side and is therefore extremely difficult to get right. How can we solve this problem??
  21. My family presented me with the opportunity to buy any putter I wanted really and would love to do a bit more than just go find something at PGA Tour Superstore that I happen to like that day as that's how I bought the two putters I've used the last five years or so. I know should probably be looking for SAM labs but if anyone has recommendations as to who or where or any other advice I'd love to hear it! Do know of Club Champion & the Southlake Golf Galaxy have the SAM lab but that's about it so far as haven't had a ton of time to research.
  22. Wanted to start a post on my journey with the EVNROLL ER2. It's coming in the mail today or tomorrow and I'm convinced it's going to be a staple in the bag for a long time. I had before been a Scotty Cameron guy and even an Odyssey Tank #7 for awhile. But I was due up for some change and when I went to go demo a bunch I settled on the ER2. The ones I went to demo overall several days included: Taylormade Spider Tour Bettinardi Queen B 8 Ping Sigma G Tyne Ping Sigma G Doon Scotty Cameron 5W Envroll ER2 Clearly I though I was headed the Mallet direction but actually the ER2 and the Queen B 8 were my favorite two and they are the more stretched blade style. It was honestly a huge toss up between the Queen B8 and the ER2 but I found I was more consistent with the ER2. Plus, I loved their lighter option jumbo grip. So I made the call, got fitted, and pulled the trigger on it. I'll follow up soon when it arrives and include pictures and hopefully some video with my GoPro. Not sure what the goal of the post is other than to give an average-joe putter review that will be honest, probably "make-fun-of-worthy", and give some valuable insight. Be Back Soon,
  23. Hello guys, Just wanted to introduce a great putting trainer and aid that can actually help out a lot of beginner or weekend golfer like myself. The Smart Putter launched on Kickstarter last week . Check it out here. Now, as a putting practice gadget it's not for professional level golfers who seek and value grip/feel more than anything else. But for golfers like myself, who just suck when you land on green but just don't have the time to practice strokes or get used to reading elevation and stuff like that. Smart Putter has a built in sensor that would indicate the level balance of the putter with it's LED level indicators on the head. It also has a laser pointer that would guide the golfer with aim allowing the golfer to check the proper alignment between the putter , ball, and target. The point is. With the level indicators on the head of the putter, you can track your horizontal and stabilization movement without forfeiting your original stance. Therefore, just get in your stance and as your facing down on the putter as you would normally, you can instantly and constantly check your level balance. Does this thing stop there? Nope. It comes with a SMARTGOLF App. The Smart Putter sends live quaternion data (location/angle data from the head of the equipment) to the application for precise analysis and guidance. Now there are ALOT of training aids that attaches to your club and with connection with the app it would analyze your swing and also tell you how far you've hit. BUT most "pads" or attachable gadgets are put on shaft or the butt of the equipment. Which calls for a very limited and not so accurate analysis. Our application retrieves data from the head of the equipment which is where the gold is. The SMARTGOLF app is free and available in each respective application stores, it would provide data on the velocity, impact point, path, angle, and so on. If you want to hit the course rather than just practicing. Utilize the field mode where you would actually swing or putt on a virtual golf field. It's a mobile golf game, but rather than click some random power gauge to play.. you would actually swing or putt like you would at the field. Alright guys so again visit here if you guys are interested and let's work hard to hole it!
  24. Not only a putter, a Smart Putter! Putting, it's one these skills which really makes the difference between two players. In a very close match, victory and defeat will be chosen while putting so why not give yourself the best odds and make a new ally of the green? With the Smartgolf putter, practice whenever and wherever you might be even for 10 minutes a day and finally get these few extra strokes off your game! Equipped with powerful sensors, the Smartgolf putter analyses your putts and transmits the data to your phone, tablet or computer via the Smartgolf application. Analyze your game on the field, at home or even at the office and receive some professional feedback to better yourself. Get transported to a virtual field using the associated application to practice at home surrounded by your loved one! That's not all!

  25. Recently picked up the PuttOut training aid for a little indoor winter practice and wanted to share my thoughts. Awesome aid to keep around the house and for travel. I travel for work and found that I can take this along and it passes the time. This device has 2 options for putting. 1 you can go for a perfect putt. It requires you to have the right speed and line to make the ball stop perfectly in the hole. Great way to consistently get the feel and speed of a putt and have a great visual cue that you are succeeding. Then you can use it like a normal ball return putting aid. Device simulates regulation size cup and gives you a visual when a putt lips out of the hole. For the $25 bucks I have found that it is money well spent. Can't wait to get out on the course and see some results.
