TESTERS WANTED (4)
So you think the importance of shaft design is only important to drivers. Well the engineers at Odyssey Golf among some of the best and brightest minds in the business want to show you otherwise. For years counterbalancing has been a big buzz word in the world of putter shafts. Well the new Stroke Lab putters by Odyssey Golf aren't just counterbalanced, they take weight shifting to a whole new level or should I say end.
As in redistributing 40 percent of the weight from the middle of the shaft into the butt and head end of the shaft. The results show that you will make a much more consistent stroke with Stroke Lab than with the standard putter shaft.
Don't believe it? We're going to give you...well four of you a chance to prove it to yourself and the rest of the forum.

With so many players having recent success with the ArmLock putters on the PGA Tour, we thought we'd see how it works for the average golfer. So follow four of our forum members as the put the Bettinardi Studio Armlock in play over the next four to six weeks to see how they perform with it.
Feel free to join the conversation and ask any questions you might have in regards to the putter or method of using it.

Testers Wanted (4)
So how does MyGolfSpy follow up a forum testing of the Most Wanted Driver of 2019 that resulted in almost 1200 applications?
How about throwing up a putter that not only will be officially launching this week, but comes from one of the most respected names in the golf industry. A name that speaks not just quality and beauty, but in addition has topped the final leader board of the PGA Tour eight times in the last nine months, two of those by Brand Ambassador Matt Kuchar.
That's right Bettinardi Golf has just launched the newest addition to it's Studio Stock lineup with the SS38 Armlock putter. How can something so beautiful have so much tech, well here's just a taste.
Armlock putter, a compact mallet with maximum forgiveness and easy alignment. Robert re-engineered the popular SS38 standard model to craft this elegant, high performing Armlock putter that features 1 shaft of offset and 5 degrees of loft. Our Tour-proven F.I.T. Face is milled into the SS38 with 20% deeper grooves for an even softer feel at impact on the 303 stainless steel body. A stunning hand-polished platinum finish gives the SS38 Armlock, an extremely durable and clean appearance at address.
Well enough of the tech talk, there will be more of that and of course more talk of the beauty from our testers...that will be the job of those selected for this elite opportunity. So lets enjoy a bit more of the beauty that is to come their way.

It's time for a MyGolfSpy Super Bowl pick'em contest!
Like our contest for The Match, we're setting up some props for you to pick for Sunday's Rams vs. Patriots championship game. For each prop, complete the poll to pick the side you think will happen.
NOTE THIS CAREFULLY: For a tie break, post in this thread the total points (both teams combined) that will be scored in the game. Submissions without a tie break will be given lowest priority in the event of a tie.
And there are PRIZES!
A MyGolfSpy putter cover (either mallet or blade) A MyGolfSpy bag tag A MyGolfSpy divot tool We'll be closing this contest at 6:00pm Eastern Time on Sunday. Good luck to all, and winners will be announced next week!
We had 261 entries in the MyGolfSpy Prop Bet challenge. Some of the props resulted in landslide wins: only 9 of you thought there would be a safety; the other 252 of us were glad you were wrong. Some were pretty close to 50/50. Oddly, the total yardage prop (51.92% for the Patriots to 48.08% for the Rams) was closer to 50/50 than the actual 50/50 bet on the board (the coin toss, with 52.31% going heads and 47.69% tails).
As for the tie break: everyone was (shocking) way over. The closest there was @Herb, at 29.
The distribution was almost a bell curve; it skewed high because of a couple that most people got right:
On one extreme was an entry that got a single prop correct. I don't want to single him out, but he and I were fellow reviewers on the G700 irons. 🙂
Among the staff, @GolfSpy MBP had the most impressive performance, nailing 9 out of ten. He doesn't get a prize for two reasons: he's ineligible, and he picked a combined score of 327, which was only off by 311 points. (Also, I would rather have watched that game.)
Rounding out the staff results:
@GolfSpy STUDque: 8 @GolfSpy Barbajo and @GolfSpy Dave: 7 (and they both picked 49 points, for a total tie, or collusion) @GolfSpy MPR: 5 <sniffle> There were nine contestants who picked 9 out of 10 correctly. Unfortunately, only three of the nine (counting MBP) followed the instructions (left above in this post for the record) to add your total score prediction as a tie break. Honorable mentions, then, to he guys who nailed the predictions but didn't nail the instructions:
@2talltodd @banny @deg430 @jody @marvimus @mtashiro That leaves three (how convenient!). In third place, picking 9 of 10 correctly and predicting 52 points scored was @Kduncan55! To him goes the MyGolfSpy divot tool!
In second place, also getting 9 right but picking the still grossly inflated, but closer to the (boring) reality 44 points, is @golfer71909! We'll get a bag tag headed that way!
And the winner of the MyGolfSpy Prop Bet contest is: @jscarborough55! He defied the odds and picked all 10 correctly. Being the only one who did so, it doesn't matter that he expected a wildly optimistic 45 points in the game. For his victory, he gets his choice of the MyGolfSpy mallet or blade headcovers!
Congrats to the winners, and thanks to all for playing!
I'm selling my two previous gamer putters. A Scotty Cameron Select Newport 3 and an Evnroll ER1. Both are 34" and have the original headcover. The Evnroll knocked the Scotty out of the bag two years ago, and the new Evnroll ER5B just knocked the ER1 out of the bag. I'd love to keep them, but they can get more love elsewhere. Asking $175 for each, shipping included. Payment by Venmo. Let me know if you have any questions.
