Hey everybody. I'm a 12 hcp., but my new passion is Putt Putt. I'm on a mission to become 2017 APA (amateur putting association) National Champion. I use a Rife Iconic Vault 001 and Callaway Supersoft. Looking forward to joining the group. Hope I don't get clowned for being Putt Putter. On second thought, clown me all ya want, most people wish they could putt like me.

Welcome!

 

Laughed a bit when you used clowned and putt-putt in same sentence. All I thought of was hitting it through the clown mouth :D

Wish I could say it was an intentional pun. Threw up a softball there. No clowns or windmills in a Putt Putt course. Thanks for the welcome Dave.

LOVE mini-golf... kids/wife, and I have a "contest" each year on my birthday with a trophy that goes back-and-forth.  Can't get my kids interested in golf but they love playing mini golf.  There is definitely a strategy when it comes to it and I have a great deal of respect for people that take it seriously and are successful.

 

Just curious - how'd you end up with that putter?  Sounds nice...heard a lot of great things about the Rife putters and was seriously considering one.  Were you fitted for the putter?

 

Welcome aboard!

As you'll probably be able to tell most of us (me included) can use some putting help.... feel free to share any tips, tricks, suggestions, hints or cheat codes!

Welcome to the site!  While we might all be a bunch of clowns around here, we won't clown somebody just for Putt-Putt :)

Thanks for the warm welcome. I love to talk about every aspect of putting. I hit as many putters I could get my hands on, then a bunch of on line research. Came down to Ping TR and my Rife. The final deciding factor was the rollboard test. It is a piece of velvet, when smoothed out shows when your ball really starts to roll instead of bounce and skid. I was fitted for my putter, but the only thing that was changed was the grip to a Winn midsize pistol grip. I'm at 71° lie and 2° loft. I have a totally different putter for Putt Putt then for golf, about half the loft.

Glad to hear your kids are excited about mini golf. Putting is putting wherever you do it. It all comes down to getting the ball to drop. When they do play golf, they'll already know how to do the most important part.

Welcome.

 

Do you take your putter to play putt putt or do you use what the course provides?

I'm from Ft. Wayne, Indiana. The Putt Putt national championship is on my home course, so I am hyper focused on dialing in my putting skills. I wanna win a National Championship.

Welcome to MGS!!

 

I remember as a teen back in the 70's, that Putt Putt was a staple of my Saturday viewing.  I watched it every week, and was amazed at how routinely they got hole in ones.  It seems if you didn't you pretty much lost that match.

I bring my Rife Iconic Vault 001 putter and a Callaway supersoft. The ball you use for Putt Putt makes a huge difference. Pro v's slide a little bit on the rails. Chrome softs kick a little bit more than some people like. I was surprised how different each ball acts.

You got that right. 18 holes, par 36, and if you're not averageing 26 or better your gonna be towards the bottom of the pack.
