1, Scotty Cameron California Monterey, I love the looks of it and that in turn gives me more confidence

2, loft: 4º lie: 71º length 35"

3,  2 years

4,  I try to stay consistent when I'm off everything feels foreign... I currently have the Phil Mickleson press forward before I pull the trigger and putt.

2. 34", loft 1°, lie 65°.  Stock headweight but 75g counterweight

 

3. I have yet to roll it on the course

 

4. Yes, haven't changed my putting stroke

 

5. I would say a 5, but it got better towards the end of last season and I'm hopeful I will improve greatly this year after my putter fitting.

1, What putter do you use and why?

Boccieri Heavy Putter C2-DF Original Women's;  because of the weight and the short shaft are perfect.

2, What are the specs of your putter?

31" long;  3* loft;  72* lie  Head weight 465g;  total weight 900g; bright SS with CNC milled face

3, How long have you been using the current putter in your bag?

4 years; found it in a used club bin at Golfsmith for $35

4, Do you commit to a specific method?

I use the Kenny B method; eyes over the ball, slight forward press, SBST; shorter backswing with slight acceleration to a longer follow-through

5, How do you rate your putting performance on a scale of 1 to 10?

8, only because there is room for improvement; good distance control, but could do better on L2R breakers.

Fascinating. You really have put some thought into your choices and are committed long term. I wouldn't play you for high stakes

Of course, I may be delusional.  :)

 

I was probably a 3 or 4 with my old putter.  Sometimes I was pretty good, other times I could 3-putt all day.  Once I picked up that putter, I knew it was the one for me; but that being said, I can NOT pick up any other putter and make a decent putt with it.  I try every time I go into a golf store; I migrate to the putter section.  I would love to have one of the putters listed on the other putter thread, but I know that I would be a terrible putter with any of them; at least until I got use to it.  But I have no confidence that I would ever be as good as I am with the Heavy.

1, What putter do you use and why?

Scotty Cameron Coronado

 

2, What are the specs of your putter?

35" 4* standard lie with a Best Grips Micro Perforated Pistol Grip

I have a strong arc putting stroke.

 

3, How long have you been using the current putter in your bag?

over 2 years

 

4, Do you commit to a specific method?

Yes, I am an advocate of "Instinct Putting."

  1. Stand behind the ball and determine where the ball must enter the hole.
  2. Follow the line the putt must follow back to the ball.
  3. Adjust right or left so that I am looking at target line.
  4. Step up to the putt along the target line.
  5. Focus now totally on speed, while imagining the ball following the line into the hole.
  6. Look at the hole while making the practice strokes.
  7. Now, focus on a specific point opposite the side the ball must enter.
  8. Look at the hole when making the stroke.

I tend to give the ball more of a pop, but sometimes on short putts I make a longer stroke and chase the ball to the hole. I care nothing about "the stroke". I am target oriented and that is all that matters. The stroke will take care of itself.

 

5, How do you rate your putting performance on a scale of 1 to 10?

9 at least on my home greens.

need practice on different greens.

You are in no way delusional.

 

It does not matter what you use as long as you putt well. There are some rally pretty putters out there and most people base their choice on looks and feel. whilst these are important factors, the most important is 'Performance'. 

 

The market is moving towards heavier putters and there are more pros than you realise using backweighting. European tour average length is 33.25" with many at 31" or 32"

I look forward to your responses

1. Never Compromise Sub 30 - Type 50 Belly Putter

2. It's cut to 33 inches and fitted with a Superstroke Fatso, loft? Yeah not so sure.

3. Been in play for about 12 months

4. I neither commit to a method or the stroke!

5. 4 out of 10, reckon I may be one of the worst putters I've seen playing as low as I do.

 

 

Well that hasn't cheered me up ahead of a day at work!

1. ping ketsch

2. 33" std.

3. since last summer

4. straight back, and straight through, my timing ratio is everything

5. 7/10, I make a large percentage inside 10', and can leave them close inside 30', but the extra long ones I can possibly 3 putt.

 

I am taking aimpoint express this spring, as my biggest problem with putting is reading the greens.

1. Odyssey White Hot Pro #7. I saw so many pros, especially Euro guys, using them. Luke Donald was putting on a putting show for the ages with one a couple years ago for instance.

 

2. 35.5", 1 degree upright, standard loft, SuperStroke Ultraslim 1.0 grip. $120 total for a complete custom putter.

 

3. Two seasons.

 

4. Method: not really. I was fit using the Ping ap years ago, and used those specs when ordering. It identified me as straight back, straight through, which I've used face balanced putters for some time. I try to keep my hands up high like Steve Stricker, and the longer shaft length actually puts my dominant eye (right) in a better spot for lining up my putts. These specs have worked well.

 

5. I'll give myself a 7. Definite room for improvment, but its been getting better for a while.

I look forward to putting now.

1, What putter do you use and why? Strong arc SeeMore M3 mallet - RifleScopeTech really works for me - and I love the looks of it.


2, What are the specs of your putter? 34" - 4deg loft - 70deg lie. 


3, How long have you been using the current putter in your bag? 1 year


4, Do you commit to a specific method? I don't have a specific green-reading method (though I do need one). Re my stroke, I follow a 2:1 tempo and simply hide the little red SeeMore RST dot.


5, How do you rate your putting performance on a scale of 1 to 10? Could be much better - 6/10. I rarely 3-putt, but hardly ever 1-putt (though that may be more of a reflection of proximity to the hole with approaches ;) )

      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.

      Let's congratulate these forum members:
      @Kanoito
      @HardcoreLooper
      @Peaksy68
      @tommc23
      @gaussman1
      Full announcement is found here.
      ______________________________________________________
      5 TESTERS WANTED
      Let's make practice fun again!  Well even if you never found it fun before, you might after giving the PuttOUT system a go.   
      It begins with the Pressure Putt Trainer. A very simple looking plastic ramp with a hole  in it. Has to be easy right?  Well give it a go and let us know.  it in of itself would be enough practice for you. But PuttOUT has developed a full system, each of which could be used independently, but when combined make for very impressive and effective methods of practicing your putting. 
      It can be used indoors with the PuttOUT mat, it is also very effective on the actual putting green with any combination of the mirror, gate and Pressure Putt.      
      How To Apply
      This opportunity is open to any golfer who lives on the planet earth!  We are looking for five dedicated forum members who will use the system and report back their honest thoughts in a full thorough and comprehensive review.
      Please provide the following info in a separate post below...DO NOT QUOTE this post.
      First Name/State or Country
      Handicap
      Have you ever used a putting training device before 
      We'll be selecting the testers late next week, so be sure to check back to see if you've been selected.

      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....
    • By Mr. Shank Dawg
      Great forum, great community, and I am sure one of the knowledgeable members has come across this question before (or, can point me in the right direction).  I have used the search bar some to pin point this topic to some effect, but haven't come across the answer that satisfies my curiosity.  I already know and understand a dynamic fitting and static fitting work best for shaft fitting and it's hard to beat a good (and patient) fitter.  
      My question pertains to online iron shaft fitting/recommendations from most of the shaft manufacturers and/or online fitting services: How relevant is a question regarding iron distance (say, 6i carry) when your current 6i loft and the set you are interested in purchasing is different?  I could ,theoretically, hit my 6i 170 yards using a 26* loft but only hit my buddies 6i 155 yards using 29*...these are just relative numbers to express a questionable point... with all other variables being the same (relatively speaking) but loft.
      My interpretation of the line of questions for iron shaft recommendation is that it is generating results based on flight and dispersion preferences along with swing speed/power/carry distance.  However, if my current 6i is 26* and is allowing me to move the ball 170yds down the fairway, how good is the online fitting tool going to be if the new set I am interested in has a more traditional loft to it?  Am I totally off base in this line of thinking?  Are the manufacturers shaft recommendations useless? 
      Again, I apologize if this has already been discussed ad nauseam.  Happy golfing!

      Matt Saternus (used to be with MGS) of PluggedInGolf.com posted an interesting article...
      "Do wedge shafts matter?"
      https://pluggedingolf.com/do-wedge-shafts-matter-golf-myths-unplugged/
      He tested in a similar style to MGS using a variety of recreational players and identical wedge heads with different shafts, then swapping them among the players and having them hit different short game shots. Results are measured by Trackman at a Club Champion.
      The questions he was looking to "Confirm" or "Bust" include...
      Myth #1 – A wedge shaft can create more spin
      Myth #2 – A wedge shaft can change launch angle
      Myth #3 – A wedge shaft can improve accuracy
      Myth #4 – A wedge shaft can improve consistency
      Myth #5 – The same shaft will fit all your wedges
      Interesting and informative article .. worth a look!
