  1. I got my factory second by emailing [email protected] after recommendation from @labgolf and other users on here. He then sent me a sheet to fill in. It was quick and accurate and the putter is in perfect shape.
  2. That Sounds interesting! Will try it just out of curiousity
  3. The sand at my club gets really firm at times as well. I am a very decent bunker player and use my 5* bounce (wide sole with heel relief) from both normal and firm sand conditions. When its firm, i just open the club up a little bit less and when the sand is really soft, I use my SW (14* bounce). I would look into a wedge with low-ish bounce with a not too narrow sole and some heel relief (so the heel has no problem getting into the sand). So something like Callaway C grind, Vokey M grind or something similar should to. If you are very shallow or steep, that might vary a little. I am shal
  4. There is a new putter in town. Only had about an hour on a sanded and aerified green but like it so far. I did write down my first thoughts in the LAB Golf thread. I will post my findings after I get on course with it and will also take some more pictures when the weather/light is a bit nicer. The DF 2.1 is off to a good start but actually my putting cant get much worse at this point so the bar is quite low
  5. I get what he means in terms of ball position. (see below) I was on the practice green for about an hour with my new DF 2.1 and would like to share some thoughts. 1. Look and weight Looks is a clear winner. Everything from the build quality over the absolutely beautiful blue finish and the gorgeous headcover just oozes confidence for me. As you can see in my previous post, the heel-toe length is not that much longer than my Bettinardi was. The putter is heavier than my previous blade (330g) and I was worried that the heavier weight might ruin my lag putting. It did not. I
  6. My putter is finally here! Will take pictures as soon as I get outside with it. First impression is really insanely good. I agree that the shaft going "backwards" looks absolutely weird at first, BUT I love the look of the blue and alignment #16 (company logo) and the size is a non-factor. It's not nearly as big as I thought it would be after all the comments about size. Stroke feels really nice but I cant comment on feel so far (no carpet in the flat), but it is insane how stable it is through the stroke. I compared it back to back to my blade putter (60° toe hang) and the ab
  7. I am also looking at those Irons, particularly 921 forged vs Apex/Apex Pro and Apex Combo set (probably the most similar set to 921F). Most important factor is spin as I am a low spin player
  8. I love how he is not that much slower than Bryson without swinging out of his shoes. Amazing golf swing
  9. I would strongly recommend to try out armlocking first, before spending big money on it. Go into a store and roll a few putts with one or buy one cheap on the internet. I loved the idea of armlocking but it took me only 30min on a practice green to realize: it's not for me. I was really happy that I tried it with a putter from a fellow member and did not buy a putter. That being said, if you like armlocking, the DF makes a lot of sense as the build it very intelligently (shaft forward vs just adding loft).
  10. I dont think someone will beat Rose's 65 this year if the course stays as it was yesterday. Incredible display of golf by him. Also really nice to see Jordan bounce back after the triple. My money still is on him.
  11. I second the LAB golf putters. I strongly suggest giving this thread a read: You do not have to read through all 51 pages though Some real gems in there. I was hesitating a long time before dropping that amount of money on a putter I have never tried myself but finally pulled the trigger. Have not received the putter yet, but you will find a lot of experience from different users in that thread (and that seems to be what you are looking for).
  12. I totally feel that. It took me two months to decide on color and sightline
  13. Not really a lot to see of the stroke and everything but it for sure is a DF Easier to spot than the old white headed drivers from TM https://www.pgatour.com/video/2021/04/01/kevin-stadler-nearly-aces-no--3-in-round-1-at-valero.html
  14. Offset is not the trouble as you say. Its just the sharp transition. There is lots of irons that have quite some offset but look nice because it is a smooth transition (e.g. older AP2 irons) and some others just look ugly although the offset in reality is quite little. Visuals are so important in this, its crazy.
  15. This. Plus reduce the offset a little bit or at least make the transition from hosel to leading edge smoother. Otherwise the shape is fine but the offset looks really quirky.
  16. On the front page (Tour truck update article) it is mentioned that Phil is testing a new PM prototype that Callaway does not want to talk about. So there is something in the making
  17. Great signing for Cobra/PUMA. Kyle seems like a great guy and has great visibility on social media so it might win back some younger fans that were lost to other companys since Rickie is not playing great anymore. Bryson and Kyle is for sure not shabby as the two posterboys
  18. I am pissed. It took my putter 5 days from Eugene, OR to Vienna Austria. It is awaiting Customs clearance for 6 days now... Never thought it would take longer to bill me my taxes and import fees than to send a putter halfway across the globe. edit: just revisited and saw that my post sounds quite aggressive. None of the delay is LAB Golfs fault (I think). They were uber-quick as I ordered on March 4th with estimated 3-5 weeks for building and it shipped after 14 days. I just dont get what the heck takes so long at Customs authority here in Austria. Usually the reac
  19. I do believe there is not a lot of grinding needed, but that’s mostly an educated guess, no more. Maybe someone with industry insight can enlighten the two of us
  20. I doubt OEM wedges are ground by hand. They are cast into the final shape and then hand-polished at the most. So how big is the difference of milled grind for the non-TW people out there: marginal I guess. In the other hand, extra consistency never hurt anybody, so probably still a good move from TM
  21. I would for sure claim my money back for that. Given that you probably paid quite a bit for shaft and installation, that is absolutely non-acceptible
  22. It’s totally fine. Nothing sweeter than scooping a ball up after a great lag putt. for the same reason i practice (!) picking up my ball with all clubs that I chip with. „If you suck at golf, at least try to look like a pro“ - me
  23. I would say it is a lot about how you use your wedges. I personally use 56 (high bounce) for most shots around the green and carry a low-bounce-wider-soled 60 for everything the 56 cant handle. 52 is almost exclusively for yardage. I personally could cover all yardages with 52-58 but might lack versatility around the green. I have yet to find a LW (58) that does everything. If you only use one wedge for all short shots and carry the rest for gapping purposes, I think the three wedge setup is possible if you can hit all the distances
  24. Your bag and headcover game is top notch. Clubs arent shabby either
