Can you do better than a True Spec Master Fitter?


Recommended Posts

I had a wedge and putter fitting today (which was awesome) but we ran into two problems during my putter fitting:

1. due to supply chain issues, the fitter didn't have all the demo heads that he normally would and 
2. my stroke definitely does not work with most of the most-popular heads.

My final recommendation was left as my choice: do nothing and keep using my current putter, send my putter to National Custom to have it reshaped to the specs he thinks I need, or try to find a ~2015 Scotty GoLo 5 (which there appear to be a few for sale out there; apparently Paul Casey used to game one?)

So here's your chance - what would you fit me into? (SAM data available if you really want to get into the weeds) His recommended specs are:

  • 15-20 degrees of toe hang (current gamer is face-balanced)
  • 69-69.5 lie angle 
  • 34"
  • mid-mallet with a heavily milled face (no insert; he wants more spin on my putts. I've got a 4-degree uplift with a 1.5 degree launch)
  • No more than 2 degrees of loft

If you want a bonus point of reference, he also thinks the Bettinardi Queen B 6 or 8 could be a fit, but he didn't have any for me to try. See point #1.

So whatchu got for me? 🙂

That toe hang angle is close to a lot of offerings from EVNROLL as well as the 2 degree stock loft and face milling...

Scotty Cameron Flowback 5 is the evolution of the GoLo 5. Minimal toe flow, which equates to about 20 degrees of toe hang. Very easily found in your local golf shop. You’d have to get the lie angle adjusted, but that’s easy. And who doesn’t want a Scotty?!

This is one of the few demo brands he did have. I tried a couple and I could get a feel for it. My tempo was wacky with them.

This is definitely a possibility... I'll need to see if I can find one to roll and see how it goes! (Though, count me in the group that thinks Scotties are generally over-hyped. I don't start drooling over them like some do.)
