TESTERS ANNOUNCED! - NIKE CONVERGE PUTTERS

Recommended Posts

CAN  YOUR PUTTING SAVE THE PLANET?

 

Let's say Mars attacks, and to settle the War of the Worlds, the Martians agree to an 18-hole team best-ball match at Whistling Straights, as a prelude to this year's PGA. The winners get total domination of the known universe. The losers become intergalactic assistant greenskeepers.

The match is tied. Mars taps in for par, leaving Earth with a 19 foot sidehill-downhill for birdie.  For the win and the right to rule the solar system, who do you want taking that putt?

 

Tiger in his prime? Arnie in his? Jack in his?  Rory or Jordan?

 

Choose wisely, lest you become the Karl Spackler of Uranus.

 

Okay, so maybe your putts aren't for intergalactic domination, but we're sure you'd like to dominate your Saturday Swat, wouldn't you? 

 

MyGolfSpy would like to give you that chance.  MGS, along with Nike Golf, is offering six of you the chance to test and review the new Nike Converge line of putters.  We want to give six of you the opportunity test one out and let us know if they can help save the planet!

According to Nike, the Converge line features:

 

·      An RZN layer between 304 stainless steel that manages forgiveness, for 10% tighter dispersion

·      Tour-proven RZN interest for softer feel and faster forward roll

·      “T” shaped alignment aids

·      Length-specific head weight

How Can You Enter?

 

It's simple – just follow these steps:

  • Your name, average putts per round and home state
     
  • Your putting stroke type: either straight, arc or slight arc
     
  • Who you'd like to see take the putt against Mars for inter-galactic domination.

 

This contest is open to avid golfers in the Continental US ONLY!!! (Sorry Canada, Australia, the UK, etc  :( )

  • Your name, average putts per round and home state: Graham Upshaw, 30, Mississippi

     

  • Your putting stroke type: either straight, arc or slight arc: I'm somewhere between an arc and a slight arc. It can vary a little by the day

     

  • Who you'd like to see take the putt against Mars for inter-galactic domination: By the numbers I should take Speith for a 19 footer because he is currently the best in the world from that range. But if everything is on the line like this situation dictates then give me Tiger in his prime. He didn't miss when it mattered.

I used to putt a little better, and consequently, my hdcp was closer to 2.0....  I still hit it the same, but putt it like a 25 hdcp.  I have tried EVERYTHING.  Left hand low, Belly, Long, left handed, one handed, you name it, I have tried it......
