..........I like the overall feel and alignment of the 3T. My putting stats would say otherwise but my confidence is still there......



My thoughts exactly. Do you feel like it's costing you strokes overall or just coming out as a net zero?



I'm making (or narrowly missing) the long-ish putts with greater frequency but am missing short ones at the same rate.

WHY CAN'T I HAVE BOTH???

I'm the opposite. I'll sneak in a 10 foot putt here and there but all my makes are inside 5 feet. My frustration is on the 10'-20' putts that I feel like I have a great read and just burn the edge. It's more between the ears than anything else but I like to blame the putter to justify buying another one. 

 

In all fairness, I've been putter on different surfaces just about every time I play. I playa lot of the public courses north of Houston and some greens are lightning quick with subtle breaks and others are slow with a ton of grain. And then I'll travel to Denver and can't make anything outside of my shadow on the bent greens. I will say, I've enjoyed the distance consistency the putter offers on lag putts. I rarely 3 putt after the first hole and I get settled in with the speed of the greens.

Agree with you on lag putting. The speed control is fantastic. Whenever I get that wrong, it's because I misread the speed but the ball always comes off as I intend.

I'm beginning to think my woes on shorties may go away as I get more familiar with the putter. It's not a two-way miss, I'm pulling them. Probably because the head is rotating through more than I'm used to (even though I've got the weights set up to make the toe lag).

I'm in the market for a new putter (definitely thinking mallet) so it was great to read the review on the O-works. These are the reason I love mygolfspy, real people giving real opinions on real clubs. 

 

I have to say, based on the requirement of the $50 weight kit, as well as the overall high price of the club, this is probably not the one for me. Thanks for the brutal honesty fellas, great work! The hinge technology definitely seems worthwhile but the forgiveness just doesn't seem to be where it needs to be. 

 

Thanks again for all the hard work! I know firsthand how much work testing clubs can be, so I definitely appreciate those efforts.

Looking at the new satin Cleveland TFI 2135's or the Huntington Beach #10's. Cleveland is doing some great stuff.

 

Might also take a look at picking up a year old Ketsch, based on previous most wanted performance. There's always the appeal of picking up an EVNROLL, however the $450+ pricetag is a bit tough to swallow.

 

Of course, with my seemore I had two good putting rounds last weekend (31 and 33 putts, very good for me), so maybe I won't be kicking it out of the bag just yet! :)

Well, I broke out my old putter, the Nike Method Converge today for the first time since I got the red 2-ball.
Had 6 one-putts, no 3-putts, shot an even par 72, on a course I haven’t played for a year, on greens punched last week, in a howling wind...

Decisions decisions huh. I'm tinkering with my Fang even more right now so don't rule out the O-Works line just yet.


Had you looked at the MLA putters? If I had to pick one from the MGS member tests, it would be those.

I completely agree with you on Cleveland's direction.  I tried the Cleveland TFI 2135's when I was looking for my new putter.  I just bought one about 2 weeks ago.  Between the those two styles, I liked the TFI just a bit better.  I felt like they made some improvements on the face and it just felt better.  The thing that really stood out to me though was how easy it was to line up.  I know that was the whole idea behind the 2135, but still have to prove it, right?  

 

The putter I ended up going with was the Ping Oslo.  I loved the face on it, and on mishits, I was still getting the same distance.  I've never tested and Evnroll putter just because not many places in Indiana carry them, but I felt like the Ping was giving me the same promise that I've heard from Evnroll.  If you go on 2nd swing they have great deals on a barely used one.  I think it's around $200.

 

Something that I might suggest though first if you haven't tried it already is see if someone has your putter in a different lie.  I'm actually getting my new one 1* flat.  After putting with it that way, I just felt like my eyes were perfectly in line and it just freed up my stroke to what I wanted it to be.

So I was able to play a round Saturday.  The "O" works held true to the strike, and all missed putts were my miss read of the green.  I still feel like the putter has potential, and as I use it more I feel more confident.  I am still curious as to how the face design will hold up long term.  I will follow up with that thought end of season next year.
