Didn't buy it, but I did just win this cool Caddyshack towel from Bag Boy Golf. Dont think i can bring myself to add it to the bag so it should make a good addition to the man cave.

You all will get a kick out of this.  You know I purchased some Tifosi sunglasses Monday and there is a store in my city (Watkinsville, Ga.). They were shipped from Tifosi Monday.  I live 2.5 miles from the store.  I checked today and projected delivery date is Saturday. 😵  It shows they left town to head to Atlanta and then will head BACK to Watkinsville Saturday.  The USPS is messing with my patience. Now I could have paid $6.00 extra for two day shipping however I figured since the Tifosi Headquarters was in the town I lived in, I'd go with free shipping which they offer for orders over $25.00.    I guess the postal service gets pissed when you don't pay the extra bucks so they send your stuff around the state before it finally arrives.

Gotta love it when that happens. Unfortunately it’s not uncommon.

Got a new putter grip and am in love. Had been struggling with the Sense Grip with distance control and it started to feel too small in my hands. Picked up a Tour Snsr 140cc, its awesome. It is a heavy grip, it helps offset the heavy head my putter has (395 gram head).

I'm an unrepentant putter buyer. Over the years, I've been able to fit myself into a style of putter that works well for me, but I can't ever see myself settling on a single putter for the rest of my life. I just find putters interesting.

This year has been a very, very solid putting season for me. (I've gone on a dive into my putting stats starting with this post.) Last winter, I bought an Odyssey Stroke Lab R-Ball Slant Neck. I'm definitely a mallet guy, and with a pull being my most problematic miss, a bit of toe hang helps slow the rotation of the face. I also love the R-Ball alignment setup: not only does it help me set up on the proper line, but I use it during the stroke as well. Often, my image during my stroke is to imagine the rear ball passing through the "gate" of the alignment lines. That encourages the "held off" feel I want when I'm putting (I don't release the head).

image.png

So why would I buy another putter? [insert maniacal laughter, because let's admit it, we're all a bit nuts here]

I have one objection to this putter: the sound is awful. High-pitching tingy noises annoy me in golf clubs. I know this is a nice putter, but that sound feels cheap to me. I can deal with it, but I certainly don't prefer it.

So the question: can I get the benefits of the R-Ball without the obnoxious noise? My go to putter last year was an Odyssey EXO Indianapolis Slant. We had some good times together, especially after I built a DIY Stroke Lab shaft for it with a Gravity Grip. It's a nice putter. Might see the course again sometime. The only thing it lacks is the alignment features of the R-Ball.

But what about this?

image.png

This is the EXO Seven Mini Slant. I've had a Seven before and loved it; it's a head shape I already know I get along with. The Seven Mini, though, has that bar across the back. Anyone else seeing that the void space in the putter head creates an effect very similar to the R-Ball? I thought so too.

So now it was time to find a deal. The logical starting place was Callaway Pre-owned. Having learned a lesson before, I not only checked CPO's own website, but also their listings on eBay and Amazon. Turns out that right now, Amazon listing was the cheapest, at $133.

That's OK, but we can probably beat that, right?

So I scoured eBay for other sellers (nada). I bounced around to the various discount retailers (RBG, Dallas, Global, Hurricane). Nothing so far.

Then I hit 2nd Swing. BOOM! Their highest condition rating (9.5; mint) was going for $115. Adding tax, free shipping, we're up in the low $120s. One more step: search for coupon codes. I found a $20 off $100 code that worked.

Final price: $100.69 shipped.

[I'm so glad this forum exists. Where else can you tell a story like this and find anyone who cares?]

I have a love for putters as well. I thought I should be a mallet guy, since mallets are supposed to the most forgiving, but I have found myself to be a wide-blade guy. The only thing that is preventing me from buying a new putter is that my putting has been improving significantly with my Scotty Squareback, so I don't want to buy something new that will take it out of the starting lineup.

LOL. I will tell you my extreme couponing stories when we play our round on Sunday. Has to do with things like buying left handed clubs only for trade in purposes, etc.

If you saw my post in Got Problems you'll know our fridge is slowly killing itself, so this arvo after work I went and ordered a new one. It's an LG, which is what our current one is albeit with Kenmore labelling. If you're interested, this is the one:
