Oh man, sound slot with a deep milled face would feel super soft but with the non-instsert face it should also feel really solid.

Wait, why am I talking putters? My putter is fine.  There’s nothing wrong with it… crap.

$1300 for a 1 of 1 putter I’m using the possibility of a tour only putter has been on my mind all day. Hard to resist having 1 of 1 equipment. When you think of prices for tour equipment this really is cheap.

A tour driver head is $700-800 dollars with no shaft. Here you are getting a fitting plus fully customized putter. It’s hard resisting this especially as somewhat of a a putter ho

after making that last post, i bit the bullet and paid the down payment for the custom putter. going to do the virtual fitting option. part of my inspiration for this was that my dad played a Ping putter. he passed away when i was young and i never had a chance to play golf with him.

The Cameron inspired by David Duval was always my unicorn club...I never pulled the trigger but always wanted it.  I suppose I could justify it these days...it was a work of art.

Was at Dick's Sporting Goods earlier today to pick up a goalie street hockey stick for my middle child and a dozen Maxfli Tour balls for my dad's birthday so he doesn't go into the season playing noodles again... but that's a story for another time.

Got to roll a few Ping putters, not the PLD, but same shapes from the 2021 lineup.  as much as I am a sucker for a good Anser blade the Prime Tyne 4 might be the shape that gets me to game a mallet.  I've been a fan of that shape for a while and think the PLD might be right up my alley.  Going to have to take a little more serious look at these.

Does anyone know if golf galaxy or PGASS has these in stock to look at in person? It seems they have availability through their websites but no information if they are in store.

Had my PLD custom in-person fitting today with Jeff. Was an awesome experience. A little about the fitting:

  • First reviewed my iPing data and talked about about my putting and my problem areas as well as preferences
  • Took static measurements
  • Started with some putts with the iPing with a PLD anser as a baseline. Also used the video technology they have in the room to show where my eye line was in relation to the ball
  • I have a pretty strong arc, so Jeff wanted to compare my iPing stats between the slight arc putters (plumbers necks) and strong arc putters (flow necks). 
  • My iPing handicap was about 1.0 with the plumbers neck Anser and +1.0 with the Kushin 4, so my consistency was generally better with the Kushin 4
  • We discussed and concluded that a flow neck would be the best option
  • Grabbed the Kushin 4, a Tyne, and a DS72, all flownecks
  • Based on my static fitting and how my eyeline was in relation to the ball, Jeff recommended a 31.5" putter. i normally game a 31" putter
  • All off the fitting PLD custom putters are 35" and have the midsize Ping grip on them. Jeff took me back to the WRX department build area and cut the Kushin 4 fitting putter down to 31.5" for me to try and added some lead tape to get the head to 365 degrees
  • Went outside on the outdoor green and hit a bunch of putts with the 3 putters. putted decently well with all three, but decided i liked the Kushin 4 the best
  • Tour of the WRX department at Ping was cool, its where they build the custom PLD putters and a lot of the Tour stuff. All of the Ping PLD custom putters are milled there, got to meet the guy who was running the milling machine and the guy who builds at the PLD custom putters. Also saw the build equipment they have, puts my garage shop to shame (my garage shop is not too shabby)
  • After deciding on the Kushin 4, talked through some of the final options such as alignment aids, engraving, etc. I didn't have any good ideas for engraving, so went with no engraving, wanted to give it a clean look
