With so many players having recent success with the ArmLock putters on the PGA Tour, we thought we'd see how it works for the average golfer. So follow four of our forum members as the put the Bettinardi Studio Armlock in play over the next four to six weeks to see how they perform with it.
Feel free to join the conversation and ask any questions you might have in regards to the putter or method of using it.
Looks like Matt Kuchar has finally found a way to get it done again. Been quite a drought for one of golf's most consistent players...
Anyway, I thought it a fine time to take a look at his armlock putting style and splash a few photos of his Bettinardi.
Any of you try the armlock style of putting?
Woo Hoo football is back baby. No longer will our weekends be spent without watching giant men bash into each other. This is the week that we can all fantasize about our teams winning the Super Bowl.
With that, I suppose that it is a fine time to reflect upon last year's winner, the Philadelphia Eagles. I hope that the Eagles fans have enjoyed their time with the trophy. Once again, all teams sit at records of 0-0-0.
Bettinardi has given those Eagles one more chance to soar though with the release of their limited run BB1 putter commemorating their Championship season.
Tom Brady may not be buying one of these, but if you want one, act fast tomorrow when they go on sale. Bettinardi's Hive releases have been selling out in a hurry these days.

BB1 Philadelphia Eagles Putter

Paired with a premium leather â€˜Philly Special' headcover and black Deep Etched Lamkin grip, the limited BB1 Eagles putter will be available in select Philadelphia Bettinardi retailers and specialty accounts.

Bettinardi held their annual Summer Social this past weekend and although I was not lucky enough to attend, they did send me a batch of photos to share with all of you.
Looks like an amazing weekend of Bettinardi gear and golf. One of these years I need to make it to the Social, with pockets full of putter cash, naturally.
Which one is your favorite?
Info about the Social from Bettinardi:
The 9th Annual Bettinardi Summer Social, hosted by Bob and Sam Bettinardi and team at our Headquarters in Tinley Park, IL was concluded and we could not be happier to host such a wonderful group for a truly amazing weekend. Over 100 stunning, custom one-of-a-kind and never before seen putters, accessories and Bettinardi golf gear were released for our top customers who traveled from around the globe to attend the fun filled weekend.
Following the Friday Social kick-off, many took to the links to play golf on Saturday at the beautiful Crystal Tree Golf Club in Orland Park, IL. Over 8 groups, many with brand new Betti gamers, tour bags, and all sorts of new accessories for the greens battled it out for closest to the pin, longest drive, and of course, the longest putt, with the winner Jimmy Luck taking home the major prize, a DASS BBZero Tour Dept. gold PVD putter. Bob and Sam Bettinardi are truly honored and humbled to have spent the action packed weekend with such great customers and now friends. We are blessed to have such an amazing and loyal customer base. The best in golf!
