Adam Beach (MGS Owner) on No-tech putters

Recommended Posts

My MLA xdream arrived yesterday. Unfortunately, the midwest is shutting down for golf so I will have to make due with living room putting. I couldn't pass up the deal! I almost bought 2 but that would have definitely raised flags with my purchasing supervisor.

 

And thumbs up to X on the gift to Rickp (which I always pronounce Rick-Up). There is a reason this is the only golf forum I actually ended up joining.

I got a notice that mine is currently in Denver.  I hope it doesn't get stuck there until the spring...LOL

 

Looking forward to getting it sometime this week or early next and seeing what the technology is all about.  It really has me curious.

You and me both. I'm looking forward to see how different it will be from my blade putters. I think I've been hung up on nostalgia rather than performance.

Pretty much why I stuck with the Bettinardi C03 for so long. Made the switch to a Nike center shafted counter weighted mallet putter this summer...and I still stunk at putting. Should of gotten fitted for the putter, lol.

Alright Adam I am trading my Odyssey nine that I have a crush on for an Evnroll E2. I am hearing your gospel and jumped in. I never do this.

I have a 10+ year old driver that gives me the numbers and reliability I need and want. I can't hit anything else that has an appreciable difference so I hang with it.

I did think I would use these funds to maybe change that driver but I opted to buy something that I use at least twice (definitely more) as much.

Thanks

I, uh, have the same issue explaining golf club boxes to my wife [emoji102][emoji102]

 

[emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] this discussion (like the video) is awesome. Considering an MLA for my birthday this month! #breaking80

How about we do one better. Tell your wife I am sending you one for free.

 

On me.  

 

Shoot me your address to adam.beach@mygolfspy.com

Adam, I don't know what your costs if any are on this, but if you'd let me, I'd at least cover shipping on it so you're not out of pocket on that if you're pulling one of the ones you have in the wall/office to send.

Wow that awesome Rick! Props to X for making that happen. Wanna get properly fitted this winter when I head down south if the funds allow.

 

Does anyone have experience if they charge you for a fitting (SAM, PING PLD, etc.) if you purchase a putter from them?

USPS delivered this awesome MLA Putter today.

Thanks again to Adam, still can't believe it.

Have a 7:28 tee time with the “old fart 9 hole” group. Putter will get it's maiden voyage!

Great pics!   I know you are a happy camper and ready to introduce your new toy to some birdie looks.  Here's hoping you bag a sack full tomorrow!

So far tied for “Bag Duty” with the Odyssey 7. I think I may change MLA grip to Super Stroke 2.0 and that will put it over the top.

After reading through this thread I have a few observations.

 

First off, this is a perfect example of why Adam is our fearless leader and this site has the best culture of any forum I've ever participated in. Being honest, straightforward and open is what it's all about.

 

Second, I clearly need to analyze my putter selection. This BB1 may have to be replaced. Hmm...

This is a great podcast from Phil Kenyon, putting guru who is also on staff with Odyssey.

 

Yes, he is on staff with an insert company but I believe he is a putting instructor/fitter first. States the benefits of forward roll and tech putters.

The proliferation of mental midgets over there never ceases to amaze me. Rather, it's further confirmation of how uphill the battle can be when you're entirely dedicated to performance.

 

Humans will always have preferences which are colored by non-performance attributes (brand preference, aesthetics, vanity, etc) - That's not the point.

 

The point is when you have a single metric and a single focus, you hold those other factors constant. Some can handle this type of analysis and approach - and clearly others cannot.
