  • Your putting stroke type: either straight, arc or slight arc: straight. VERY straight.

     

  • Who you'd like to see take the putt against Mars for inter-galactic domination: Me, I'd miss, Mars would win. Any planet that would even consider Trump as a world leader doesn't deserve inter-galactic domination :)

First of all thanks to Nike Golf and MyGolfSpy for the opportunity to test. My name is Ethan Price, I'm from Texas and I average 32 putts per round with a slight arc style putting stroke. As for who I would pick to make the putt it would definitely be The Golden Bear himself in his prime, no one has made more putts when it counted then Jack Nicklaus. Thanks again for a cool opportunity, chosen or not I look forward to the results!

It's simple – just follow these steps:

  • Your name, average putts per round and home state
    Jared LeMoine - 31 - Louisiana
  • Your putting stroke type: either straight, arc or slight arc.  I usually like to have a slight arc
  • Who you'd like to see take the putt against Mars for inter-galactic domination.  I'm taking 2000-2002 Tiger, he didn't miss anything that mattered.
