Congrats, testers! Love @GolfSub70 and can’t wait to see how the putters perform for you guys. Definitely has my interest piqued as putters are so unique to the individual based largely on feel IMO.

Testers Announced! @GolfSub70 Putters

image.png

Just because the seasons are changing doesn’t mean there isn’t still ample time to test and review golf clubs. 

In MyGolfSpy Most Wanted Testing Sub 70 has performed well year over year and claimed third overall in 2023 Most Wanted Blade with the Sycamore 005 Wide Blade.  Bolstering an impressive lineup of 16 putters they have an option that will surely appeal to any golfer. 

Sub 70 says “Every Sub 70 putter is milled from a billet of 1045 carbon steel which leaves no welds, castings or inconsistencies in the head. This is the best way to make a putter head and you will not find a more solid, great feeling putter. Aesthetically each of the Sub 70 putters offers a clean, classic black and white color scheme with traditional alignment lines. We have purposefully made the heads slightly heavier than the industry standard as we feel it allows a more natural pendulum like putting stroke. “

Sub 70 also introduced a new graphite/steel putter shaft this year that offers more technology, feel and stability. Add in these Sub 70 putters will often cost half of what major brands sell for and there would seem to be perfect balance of value and performance. 

Please welcome and congratulate our four testers!

Congrats Testers! Looking forward to some great results

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 7.1 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

Mr Orange…you should take a ride north and test the putter out on the greens at Brown County Golf Course. You probably have played there? Outstanding course…give you a great test on the greens…

Introduction:

About Me: My name is Ryan and I joined MGS forums earlier this year. I’m married and have 3 kids (6/8/10) so life can be quite hectic at times. I live about 45 minutes south of Green Bay in Wisconsin and grew up in southern Wisconsin. I have played golf since I was a little kid and played on my high school team all 4 years of high school. I took a bit of a hiatus from golf after my 2nd child was born in 2015 and my love for the game was rekindled a couple years ago when my fantasy football league buddies started picking up golf and got me onto the Grint where I can get jealous when I get notifications of all them playing.

IMG_7935.jpeg.10c8ccf80dd2e549831c7faafeff8df9.jpeg

My Game: Short game and scrambling is one of the stronger parts of my game. I’m strong w/ my wedges and have some decent distance off the tee. Accuracy w/ my driver is a weakness so my golf game tends to hinge on how hitting the driver on a given day. Currently I’m a 15 hcp and average about 33 putts/round.

Why me: I’ll be a solid tester for this product as I recently did a putter fitting on the quintic putting system. Found out I had too low of loft on my putter and was having a tendency to drive the ball into the ground. I ended up w/ an Odyssey White Hot OG 7. The difference is night and day and already I am averaging almost 2 strokes less putting per round. I will be testing the 004 model (same style as OG 7) in a 33 inch length and standard lie w/ a superstroke tour 1.0 grip and the double bend steel shaft. I did my best to match my current putter specs w/ similar size grip and same lie/length. The loft I left standard but if needed I will get it adjusted to my current putter loft.

IMG_1129.jpeg.57f3752c9e53d32d22348572a68dd538.jpeg

Test Plans: For testing purposes I plan to visit a couple different courses w/ varying green speeds near my home and do some testing on the practice greens. I plan to compare to my current putter. Ideally I would like to get out on the course for full rounds but depending on when the putter arrives I don’t know how many rounds I can get in before courses start shutting down for winter in my area.

My expectations: I’m excited for this test. I honestly don’t know a whole lot about @GolfSub70 but have read that they make some great clubs. Having just updated my putter I’ll be curious to see how this one stacks up and whether it can match my current putter’s performance. I am very curious to see how the feel of this putter will differ as I’ve used a putter w/ an insert since 2004. If it can match the performance of my current putter I have a feeling it will be in my bag as black just looks sexier than silver

@Mr Orange where do you call home in Wisconsin? I am in Reedsburg and if you’ve never played the Reedsburg Country Club, would be a great track to test that putter! Challenging, quick greens. Looking forward to your review!
