  1. Beautiful! Love the cleanliness and minimalism. Enjoy it!
  2. I have 4 SC’s from 2013 and before. He lost me when those aluminium putters came out. I’m still to try the new Select series but with the virus thing, it is “you touch it, you buy it”. Anyway, in the meantime I found boutique putter makers that can produce custom wonders at a much better price. GSS is a trademark, it could be German SS, Galactic SS or anything else because those letters are a trademark, not an official acronym. So marketing has a big influence on it with the goal of maximising profits. Putters are so personal that it is very difficult to accurately say that you’ll get the best
  3. I replaced the 3H with a Rogue 7W and I couldn’t be any happier. Better launch and accuracy.
  4. I got a couple of Izod Swingflex recently, very nice fabric that dries quickly, great fit plus they are so stretchy that remain tucked all the time. I also got a Uniqlo Dry-Ex that was on sale for AUD 19.90 (USD 13] and was such a pleasant surprise. I have used a lot of brands, I like UA, Oakley and FJ.
  5. Good for you and I hope it works well out on the greens.
  6. There are more than 10 companies in Germany producing stainless steel, 303, 304 and 316 are the most popular grades, so rareness is only an excuse of SC to charge heaps more. Also, the recipe of any steel (including stainless) has tolerances in the amount of components used. At the end, it may be the manufacturing process and the heat treatment that makes a difference. For $10k a putter, I wish a CMTR could be provided (Certificate of Material Test Report).
  7. GSS is a trademark of Acushnet, the parent company of Titleist and SC. Still it might be 303 St.St.
  8. I’d like to see Leishman winning a major
  9. Drivers: Ping G400 and Rogue 2018 3W: Exotics XCG5 2012 5W: X Hot 2013 7W: Rogue 2018 No hybrids... but had Cleveland Mashies
  10. Most of the golf gear comes from China in these days, well, actually heaps of stuff come from China. If there is a stop in exports due to the virus, things won’t be nice.
  11. Last year we had in Australia the President’s Cup and many players stayed for the Australian Open and Australasian PGA. These two are held yearly within a week. The PGA has bigger prizes than the Aussie Open but both still a fraction of any PGA tournaments in the USA. I reckon that majors mean money and while any event cannot have more than $10m in prizes perhaps it won’t be considered a major, even though the Players... And NO, The Open in the U.K. is not international, it may be traditional, ancient and played in Scotland and England but this doesn’t make it international as Tennis majors ar
  12. That’s now a very happy putter! They are not lizards anymore but chameleons lol Great work
  13. Yes, Cleveland made them. I still have a 290 somewhere
  14. I have a Rogue 7W as well, live it, so easy to hit and produces great shots.
  15. It looks like Callaway doesn’t have enough balls
  16. After lines and lines on balls and putters, I found out that going naked works better for me.
  17. I chose not to buy one I saw years ago as the owner was asking too much for it and it was like 5/10 condition. I do have a 35” whose head is lighter than the heavy flange. At the end, I worked with Kari Lajosi who provided me with two wonderful flatsticks that perform amazingly well.
  18. I’m wondering what kind of putters that brand will offer, Newport 2 like?
  19. I have a Rife and several Methods with grooves. The Nike putters work well on on-centre putts while the Rife is a bit more forgiving as the milling goes across the whole face. But I don’t use them anymore as I found that putters with a great balance at address works much better for me. What I never understood is the so called face balanced putters, balanced to the sky? Shouldn’t be balanced at address to avoid unwanted torque while stroking?
  20. I found a Callaway Rogue in the bargain bin the other day, it wants to pull out the G400 from my bag
  21. The 5W shaft is fixed but the Mavrik Max has 2 weights that can be exchanged to create the draw effect and adjust slices
  22. There is always the possibility of having different tees. In a course I visit from time to time, the distance between white, black and blue tees are around 20m each. While in a Pro event, the longest par 5 may be 540m, average Joes like me plays at 500m and ladies at 460m
  23. Both feels similar, Mavrik has adjustable hosel and Mavrik Max can be set to draw. Rogue doesn’t have those adjustments but they can be found at an excellent price whereas Mavrik is at full price.
