Well so I was going to look at starting a collection of putters and I have bought 3 so far. HOWEVER, I do not have a special connection to any of them. They are kinda just sitting there and I can only use one at a time so part of me wants to just go all in on one special putter and use that exclusively. I have a SAM Putting Lab Fitting scheduled for this Friday and then I think I’m gonna sell off all the stock and get that special lady. Just looking for the forum’s thoughts on this topic and specifically what putters are worth the money:



Swag

Lamb

Circle T’s

Byron’s



Thanks guys and gals!

    I've had the same putter for 12 years. I've had a couple of six month affairs, but I always go back to her. She's a rife Barbados. So nothing wrong sticking with the same putter.



    Of what you are looking at personally I love how Bettinardi are made, that would be my choice. If its just performance and none of the intangibles of craftsmanship etc, I'd suggest Evnroll.

    I got fitted at the Bettinardi Studio back in February. It was an awesome experience, and I walked out with a Studio Stock 8, and it really improved my putting. First year I can remember not switching, I bought other putters, but it stayed in the bag. Probably owned over 100 putters the last 10 years, but will be down to 2 shortly. I picked up a similar model to the Studio Stock 8 to keep as a backup, and my plan is to put the putter purchasing to bed, as un fun as that sounds. Everything about this head shape and the way it looks/feels just suits my eye/stroke. Good luck in your quest!

    I have been using the same Mizuno Bettinardi C06 almost exclusively since 2009. I have tried other putters but none for more than a couple of rounds here and there. I sold it once the second year I had it but bought it back after about a month.

    I swapped putters for years. I’ve got 2 bags full of Scotty putters.. several odyssey, a Toulon, and some others. Always searching for something I putted well with confidence.



    On a fluke, I putted with a 33 inch putter that had been cut down from 35. It was really light and short, but it worked for me. I’ve stuck with it now for a couple months and haven’t bought any new ones since.

    bought this on a whim from a fellow wrxer for $50 shipped.



    1005973-aai.jpg





    probably 2" too long, counterweighted, dinged up, could use a trip to BOS or continental or something... but i won't touch it. it's so good as is. made so many "important" putts with it since dropping it in the bag to try it out. bought a backup for some dumb reason.



    odyssey black milled no. 1. the thing is butter.





    i've had a stunning TP Mills that i couldn't roll for ****. lesson learned. the most beautiful putter to me is the one i make putts with, and this misfit fits the bill.

    I confess - no, not a monogamist.



    I am a putter philanderer, and shamelessly switch between 5 lovelies.

    They all have beauty, each in their own way, and they all respond to my caressing strokes.

    Giving them a rest for brief periods heightens their anticipation, and subsequent response to my affections of them. They desire to perform.

    Yep, I felt the same about this Putter............until I found Bettinardi and the QB8. Not sure about the direction that Odyssey are going now but the Protype, Black milled range were the best that I have tried.

    I started the season with three quite different putters.
    • Odyssey White Steel #1
    • SeeMore brass blade
    • PING Craz-E


    I took a putting lesson, and the pro and I determined that the White Steel #1 was the easiest for me to set up square to my target line, and we proved that I can make a straight uphill ten footer with it.



    That was enough for me. I got rid of the other putters and committed to my Odyssey. Now when I'm missing putts I know it's not the putter. I just need to practice more (don't we all).
