  1. After those horror stories with your neighbour to the south or cousin countryman, you may remember/consider your fellow Commonwealth guy Down Under
  2. You can find the key and weights on eBay and play with different options. I did that with my Sonoma I that felt a bit lighter however the Monterey and Sonoma II felt better with both 15g. Some people says that heavier is better for slow greens, some other the opposite. I guess you can experiment that for yourself. I agree with the first statement. I found that in the Sonoma II although both weights said 15g, they were different, something like 12g and 18g, that made me try 10g and 20g in the Sonoma I and the results were very good. Toe hang was changed by doing this. in
  3. Bump to bring back those good times when everyone was excited to see @Pure745 amazing flagsticks
  4. There are a few in Kari’s IG: LP454 in GSS satin finish L-blade Titanium Nickel finish L-blade in 303SS L-blade black with deep milling Kari does the milling himself, so it would be a matter of asking if he can make it as rounded as the Cameron.
  5. I have almost twins putters, Lajosi L-blades, one in CS, other in SS, around 360g each
  6. Although I have a dozen of putters, I use the Lajosi L-blade most of the time since 2016 and the backup (currently in my bag) is a Kingston KP1 GSS that I have since 2015 or a Lajosi DD201WB
  7. Kari Lajosi mills everything in house. I’ve been in his workshop whose main business is engineering work. He has fantastic machines that he uses for building complex pieces or putters, that’s why he can do whatever customised request that anyone may have. Kari even forge his own Damascus in house. I have three great putters from him, a DD201WB and two L-blade flange (aka Bullseye flange) one in CS and the second in SS. Contrary to most of you that prefer Byron because he is in the US, I’m in Australia, so for me it’s easier to deal with Kari.

  9. Nike forged wedges and the 56° toe sweep, this one is excellent in bunkers
  10. Callaway ERC Soft (until I finish the box) then Chrome Soft Bridgestone B RX
  11. “Our longtime friend” but his name was not mentioned at least by courtesy. There shouldn’t be any excuse for this. https://twitter.com/scottycameron/status/1381388077084463107?s=21
  12. Something different over here, Garsen Max, right size for me and it is anti-yips.
  13. Scotty has made heaps of money with the marketing term GSS used in circle t putters. I say marketing because GSS is a trademark of Acushnet, parent company of Titleist and SC. GSS is understood to be German Stainless Steel, an unicorn material used in most expensive SC tour putters and of course, Tiger’s putter.
  14. I hit my old Nike Covert irons much better than current Callaway offering. Yes, proved by Trackman on a Callaway fitting session with a Callaway fitter completely horrified
  15. They just say: “Yes, our clubs cost a little more, but we know serious golfers will invest in clubs that actually improve their game — especially if they’re made in the heart of the U.S.” This idea reminds me of Dave Billings and Machine Putters
  16. It has been a hit and miss for me to find a great 5W but few weeks ago I found the perfect mate to my Exotics XCG5 3W. I got in a very good shape an Exotics XCG6 5W that is incredible. TEE is not that popular in Australia, not easy to find and the few shops that sell them don’t carry 5W, so my finding was perfect for my game.
  17. I have 3, 4 & 5 Srixon ZU85, great from everywhere, I have done incredible shots with them. The V Sole works well from the turf and rough
  18. Srixon demo day at my home club was cancelled because heavy rain. I can’t wait to try them!
  19. Callaway driver Exotics woods 3 & 5W Srixon Utility (3, 4 & 5) sometimes I swap the 3u for a Callaway 7w Nike irons 6-PW Nike wedges Lajosi or Kington putter Cleveland bag Backup: Ping driver, Exotics 3w, Callaway 5W, Cleveland 4-PW, Exotics 52°, Nike 56°, Lajosi putter, Bridgestone bag
  20. If a club is Titleist, I don’t like it. I believe that TM marketing and club releases every three months made me not to look to those clubs as well.
  21. I got a Ping G400 SFT in September 2019 that was a big improvement over an old Cleveland Classic driver, more forgiving, straight and around 15m longer. Later on, I tried a Callaway Rogue Draw driver on a demo day that was much better than the Ping and in early January I found it in the bargain barrel of the Pro Shop and got it. Since then, it has been in my bag. I haven’t tried newer versions but probably they are even better. I’m trying to save some money for new irons.
