Looks like the brand I rented at a golf course while on vacation in Florida. Can someone please tell me, it is cheaper on Amazon or any other site you might suggest.

The "normal" price at most places seems to be $170.  Budgetgolf.com and a couple of others have posted $150 prices.  Not sure if that is for all models or just certain ones.  I would just do a search for the model you like; there may be other websites with deals, particularly now that it is the holiday shopping season.

Our shop is out of stock on the Converge putters atm, but we were at $150 when we had them in...

As I mentioned in my review of the Nike Method Converge putter, my gamer is the Boccieri C2-DF Heavy Putter.  The heavier weight of this putter seems to smooth out my stroke and resulted in more putts made from 10-15 feet than the Nike.  I will be making modifications to the Nike to increase head weight and add a counter weight to the grip end of the shaft as well.  The I will repeat the putter test with both putters.

 

I failed to add pictures of my Boccieri; sorry about that.  I just replaced the grip with a Cork Tree grip in pink to match the paint fill of my putter; and yes it is a ladies putter!   :)

Many thanks to Casey who had these grips available after a charity event.  Check them out here:

I played in a scramble Monday, on a track I'm not familiar with. 4 of us old farts, from 56 to 77. We ended up at -10, after being at -2 thru 9.

 

I'm very happy to report that the Converge contributed 3 long putts of over 15 feet, one was around 40 feet.

 

I had a wrenched muscle in my back which limited my contributions from everywhere else, but the putting is where you score in those games anyways.

 

Now my buddies call it the bat mobile haha...

After using the putter for many rounds, and continuing to struggle I decided last week to put my other putter back in the bag, and pulled the converge out, not that I am done with it, just need something else.
