  1. I have to chime in on this one. Where has it ever been said that the golf club must only be put in the hands? Why is that considered the "rule" that we all need to follow? I have been, what many would consider arm lock, for about a couple of years now, and have never enjoyed the game more. I have never practiced more and enjoyed my time more on the golf course more than when using an arm lock putter. Why do we want to regulate that out of the game? Plus, this all gets really fuzzy, should we not allow the putter to be anchored against the body, or not allow certain types of strokes, or not allow other parts of the body to come in contact with another during a stroke? For example, I hold the putter against my forearm with my right hand, never does the grip or any part of the club come into contact with any part of my arm or body, I am still holding it in my hands. Here is the best example of the grip that I can come up with:

  3. my other question is, do the caddies at Bandon get the entire $100 fee or does the course get a part of that?
  4. perfect, thanks for the input, we requested Squid, if he is available....
  5. I am reaching out to the experts here, as this is my first trip out to Bandon (my first real golf trip period). My golfing buddy and I decided over a year ago that we were going to bucket list a trip out to Bandon from Colorado, and we cannot be more excited. We are going full tilt, 36 a day with a caddie. My question is, I do not want to under tip, and be stuck with a caddie after the first day that does not want to be with us because we are cheep. I was planning on $40 tip per round, in addition to the $100.00 fee they charge for the caddie. Is this appropriate? I appreciate your feedback!
  6. I did the same thing to mmy t100s and am SOOO happy I did it. I had a set of T100 that I really liked but did not like the offset, bought the t100s for the exact reason of weakening the whole set by 2 degrees. Have never been happier. iron shots are so much cleaner and crisper, and the handicap has dropped 4 shots since I did it. Turf interaction changes was not even noticable.
  7. I used just a two part epoxy, black, I think it was a Brampton's.
  8. I ground mine down, took off a ton off the heel, and straightened the leading edge. Htey look great, but keep in mind that the small red plug will melt due to the heat from the grinding. I had to fill mine with black two part epoxy and then grind down flush.
