Preparation has started....📐 You think this testing stuff is all fun and games but there is some serious work to be done before the putter arrives....There's even MATH involved!!  🤓 This eve

machined solid face impact feel and sound accuracy consistency ...all words golfers like to see when considering a putter and Ping brings these to you with their new

Great review! Enjoyed all the videos and comments on the putter...even the wildlife involvement 🤣. Do you think the flat face helped you on longer putts vs. a textured face with your swing type? I've noticed this when comparing my original Anser 2 to the TA Impact #3 mallet putter - I'm closer on longer putts 20'+ thanks to the solid face, where as I'm longer on mid-putts and the Impact is better from 8-15' range due to the same issues. However the larger MOI on these Heppler putters might mitigate my mid-distance misses that some... Curious about your thoughts, or any other testers!

Getting close to review time so probably last graph. After playing with the length now moved it to the max 36" for the last 2 rounds.  Greens are slower but I'm really beginning to get confidence with the putter, 7 singles in the last round with a couple of 10-15 footers. Scaring the hole with most putts within 30 feet and pace from every length good .

For distance control I think the solid face is a better choice for me than an insert putter.  I believe that is due to my lack of consistency hitting the sweet spot and the insert style varies more than a solid face.

Just posted my review.

Really enjoyed doing the review as I've mentioned before it gets you doing things that you wouldn't normally do when practising your putting. The videoing in particular has highlighted some issues with my technique that I've worked on.

 

Latest update on stats.

I had a total blow out on Thursday when playing The Castle Course in St Andrews, 37 putts, BUT I had moved from slow parkland greens to very fast ironed links greens that are the most undulating greens I've played. Putting for birdie on 8 from 60 feet with 12 feet break  and 6 feet downhill is just an example of one of the putts. 

Back on game yesterday with 30 putts. Today we called off after 4 holes due to fog but 4 single putts.

It is still my new Gamer.

Found my first issue with the Floki.

If you use Arccos or Shot Scope you will not be able to screw the standard sensor into the grip but due to the screw mechanism access for length adjustment.

I found that out also, I am thinking about cutting off the tip of it a little bit so that it fits flush. But after using it for a couple of rounds, it didn't bother me all that much.

My wrist finally felt good enough to give it some on course therapy and I got to use the Fetch for 9 holes today.  It performed really well.  A couple long 40 and 50'ers that ended up within a foot of the hole, a 20'er that lipped out and a 15' birdie that dropped.  No three putts, the worst putt was a misread that left a 5'er and i made that to save par.  There is no threat to its Gamer status!

I did exactly that with my PING Tyne 4 and it worked out fine.

Sunday Night, flash sale notices and a love of mallet putters is a dangerous combo.

i have a Heppler Tomcat on the way 😎

Of course i paid for 2 day shipping so I’ll have it in time for a tournament on Friday!
