Yes, you're retarded if you spend $500 on a putter and you're not a scratch golfer .

I think mine is officially worth $150, got it for $50. Forget what brand. Spend the money on classes instead and your game will improve far more.

I dunno man. I hit that Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance putter and goddamn it was smooth and accurate. It's $400 and I can get 15-20% off at my local shop, plus it comes with a free round of golf which is about $80. Puts it at about $250?

It's a stretch, but I could see that being a decent deal then.

edit - depending on what you're upgrading from.

They are 100% regulation. They just are not regulation if they are BELLY putters like Adam Scott has.

You can bet he will switch to something that will be counterbalanced.

Right now I am swinging a Cleveland #1 HB Classic. It's OK, easy to get variance on the follow through, and arc. The Futura X dual balance eliminated the arc and made my stroke super smooth.

today they are legal but they likely won't be shortly.

Anchor putters will be illegal in 2016 under 14-1b

I use a Taylormade Rossa/monza/spider putter (fuck if I know, it has all 3 names on it).

Buddy of mine can get you that Scotty Cameron about $100 cheaper though. He's opening up a golf shop in San Mateo.

Heh. Yeah ran into him today and he said he's got a shitload of inventory but hasn't even settled the location with his realtor yet so it's piling up in his house. Text me Matt let me know what you're looking for.

Just got my new bag.. Feeling sexy.. Shot a 90 the other day. Almost broke in to the 80's! I'm starting to get a nice swing that produces a solid divot and gives the ball proper flight and distance. Nice steep angle. Need to hone in on accuracy with driver and irons, would like a little more distance with driver (hit my fairway wood further, weird huh?). Worst stroke might be chipping out of long grass right now though.
