putters: what you got ?
« on: October 16, 2018, 02:28:21 AM »
seriously , whats  the scoop on putters in the house, not just gamers,  I mean the whole shooting match.

ive got 70+/- ish
30 of which I play  pretty regularly Id think.
a  few are wall pieces  and the rest are in  the,  ok, maybe  a game sometime soon bin.
I trade a FK load of these locally  and try get a few exotic bits and bobs  but so far not 1 of them id say is THE best.

but theres a cpl id never let go of  and not what ud think.

1986 masters jack McGregor/axis eagle/odyssey 2 ball black forged/HM mz-07/HM 1999ltd LN/yamada cu/ for eg. prob never oust these


the rest  are happy to move about freely after ive  had my fun with them.

seem to be on a gigaintic centre shafted mallet binge recently, 10 or so of the  last  15 or so have been  CS , maruman , modart, prgr  have been making a few nice pieces and TBH   not sure why  im getting them   I don't really putt better with them, I just love the look and feel of them  I guess.

ansers come and go with my putting , if im hitting them well Ill go back to the ansers but when im not  I try  EVERYTHING.
I take minimum of 4 putters easch game with me  spedn an hour on the greens first then play, that way all flatties get a proper go, not just a 30-40 putt round and moved on, I give them all  their fair go.

lately  the ones ive been best with are the compact  mallets that are heel balanced and supposedly THE worst shape for my  stroke.the kind below.  really love the head shape of these  but they are no good for  me

go figure!

The putter bug never itched me real bad. I tried a couple of them and experimented with the different shapes and shafting positions but that "I want to have it reflex" is almost non existent for putters. Maybe because I've never been good with the flat stick. My current gamer is a heavy head grindworks forged plus one (Anser style) with a Mitsubishi Diamana prototype shaft that seems to stay in the bag. Lately I built a Miura KM-007 with a UST frequency filtered shaft. It's also a nice putter but with my slight arc putter path the long sight line irritates me a little bit. Center shafted mallets never worked for me - they may felt good but never worked well over a couple of rounds.

I can say Iím not a putter ho but I probably have at least 15 or more. I have 3 that I would consider rare / collectible: 1998 SC Xperimental LN TeI3 with bomber jacket cover, 1999 Masters Winner Jose Maria Olazabal Kevin Burns 9304, and a Japan only TM Rossa.

Others are not very special. My last 4 purchases were center shafted mallets.

putting is by far the weakest part of my game, its scary how bad it is vs ball striking. fkkn does my head in but I love putting , I spend so many more hours putting than hitting these days,  fave part of a round is the putting greens when I play at a  nice course,  I take  a heap of them with me and go thru them all , then decide what to play on course.

no comp over  here so we get to do what we like in terms of  playing, usually  some form of scramble, nasau, or just practice rounds.

No. not this Goldís.... this one pre dates when Sasaya started using Kitadas. 
You wonít find Kitada blanks with this shape.

The Seven is.

Never paid too much attention on putters to be honest. But after having the complete bag firmly set and putting being by far the weakest part of my game (and it's not even funny how bad it is), I started looking at putters. No idea what I really need though. Might be time to go for a putter fitting.

Got mine new.   They do have weight and lie options. I went with the heaviest 365g, 34.5Ē standard lie.   It almost plays like a center shafted wide blade but it does have a 42 deg toe hang similar to a typical anser type putter.
