I reshafted them with Rifle 6.5 soft stepped and I wasn't that exact with measurements so some were a little off. Therefore lead tape. I would never think of throwing my byron...

I understand...

Here is the story of the last time a putter went on a solo flight...

I was playing in a league match. Just a little 9 hole thing at a short executive course that is completely ownable. There are 3 "par 4's" on one side, and the longest is 265.

#1 246yd "par4" - I drive it on the green to 20 feet, and 3 tap it for par..

#2 112yd par 3 - hit it to 8 feet, 2 putt

#3 105yd par 3 - hit it to 15 feet, 3 putt

#4 154yd par 3 - hit it in the bunker, splash it out to 5 feet, miss that...

#5 150yd par 3 - hit in to 25 feet, 2 putt

#6 265yd "par4" - Drive it on the green, 35 feet.... 3 putt........

#7 185yd par 3 - hit it to 4 feet!!! MISS!!!!!!!

#8 235yd "par4" - drive it to 25 feet........ 3 tap AGAIN.

The putter ceased to live at this point....

This was one of my all-time greatest ball striking days ever, and I never ever sniffed a birdie.

Are you sure??? Those things are Super Cursed. On the plus side, there is plenty of life left in them, because I never made a single putt.

Pretty sure I can sweet talk some magic into some of them and send them back... But I won't let them come near my gamer just incase they want to tell her something.

No to bust or anything but..... think you need a putting lesson, LOL. Don't get upset i really don't know you at all but looking at all those nice approach shots in the greens and all those extra putts has to be eating at you. NO?

I can send you a PM with a distributor whenever you are ready. Byron makes a quality putter for a really reasonable price.

It is part of the reason that I never play golf on a consistent basis anymore. I used to be a halfway decent player, and carried a 2.0 index for about 3 years... Then family happened. I still have those days when I hit it like a scratch player, but balance it out with my 15 hdcp short game, and shoot under 80.. but most of the time I am right around 82. In another thread I vowed to purchase a putter this year, and stick with it FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON. I hope this helps.

That is great ball striking, I think even the putter agreed that a flight was justified.

I don't even feel a bit bad about it. It was a Never Compromise GM2 Exchange. Retail cost of

$199.99. I never felt better.

Which Rifle shaft do you have in the irons, and how do you like them? Rifle not something too common found in the PING lineup. Just curious.

I'm really hesitant to do any custom work unless its through Ping's WRX shop. Once you alter them, Ping will not honor the warranty and they won't perform work on them either.
