Even though I initially posted for the opportunity, please omit me from consideration.  I may not have adequate time to prepare a proper review.  Better for someone else who participates here frequently to have the opportunity.  

 

I really like the look of the Nike Converge putters.  I'll be following the threads and looking forward to see what everyone has to say about these putters.

This will be great as I already know Nike putters are awesome!

 

Your name, average putts per round and home state:

Doug Hanson, 33 (and I think I'm a decent putter!) SoCali

 

Your putting stroke type: either straight, arc or slight arc:

Slight arc

 

Who you'd like to see take the putt against Mars for inter-galactic domination:

Tiger, since it will be vs. Mars. Time travel will have been perfected by the time this event takes place, so I will travel back and grab Tiger during his heyday when he was able to will the earth to tilt...

  • Your name, average putts per round and home state: Andy Satori, too damned many (according to GolfShot 36), Georgia (it's kinda hot, greens are hard, fuzzy and slow right now)

     

  • 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 :)

Actually Mars would win because they out-negotiated Obama and he gave them the win before the event even started...

30 putts per round

Tiger Woods is the best clutch putter of all time!  I currently game the original Method 001 and I don't know if a better putter has ever been produced (Yes Scotty that's meant for you! :))

  • Your name, average putts per round and home state

Michael Harmon, averaging 28 ppr, raised in Southern California but Pennsylvania is my home

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

'Straight' putting stroke, currently with a center-shafted Ping Scottsdale PickemUp

  • Your pick for the greatest clutch "Major" putter of all time

Tiger, in his prime, made EVERYTHING when it counted.  He just didn't miss.  Definition of 'clutch'. (Although Speith is right on his tail)

I had really wanted to try out this putter. I am considering several options right now, but a recent family health issue is preventing me from devoting the time needed for a good review. I hope those selected provide the same quality reviews that we have recently had on other products. Looking forward to reading about it.

 

EDIT: just for the record...

31 putts per round

Clutch putter - Brad Faxon, watched him give Greg Norman a putting lesson. Just a beautiful stroke!

  • Your name, average putts per round and home state
  • Aldo Rebanal, 38, California

     

  • Your putting stroke type: either straight, arc or slight arc
  • Slight arc (Left handed player)

     

  • Who you'd like to see take the putt against Mars for inter-galactic domination.
  • Even though I'm not a fanboy I have to say do or die against Mars...Tiger.  He's been so far away from contention recently that it's never mattered.  But the guy has been Mr. Clutch for the better part of 15 yrs when a putt was needed to win.  

I currently game the Method Mod 60 so it's disheartening to see the Converge M1-08 is not available to lefties. Oh well I'd be willing to try any other model.  Thanks for the chance MyGolfSpy and Nike Golf.

Nick Marusiak: 30-38 putts a round. Live in AZ but from NJ. 

 

slight arc.

EDIT: should mention I'm a lefty putter. 34 inch putter too. 

 

I'll go slightly different. Give it to Dwight Eisenhower. The guy played all his golf while dealing with the presidency and Russia. I'm sure he probably had nerves of steal. Otherwise give it to Arnold. Whatever you do don't give it to Norman.
