  1. I too became hyper-aware of competitors back in the day, but after coaching & playing with high school freshman, JV and even varsity squads I can literally block out anything while playing just short of the Korda sisters in bikinis I guess.
  2. Will Zalatoris, Kevin Na and Russell Henley just texted.. they said “no” to the OPs question
  3. Yep. For a scratch golfer if I hit 6 greens, I’m dropping one for birdie, two putting the remaining 5 for 11 putts. The remaining twelve holes I’m striving to get ten up&downs for an additional 14 putts = 25 This would be the benchmark (or ideal) number for a scratch golfer. If you’re contemplating using less than 6 GIRS to calculate putts for a scratch golfer you’re getting into unrealistic scenarios and should just refer to the chart I copied and pasted for quick reference.
  4. HANDICAP AVG. PUTTS PER ROUND AVG. SCORE Best pro 27.7 69.1 Scratch 31.5 75.7 1-5 32.6 79.8 6-10 33.7 84.8 11-15 34.8 90 16-20 35.8 95.1 21-25 36.8 100.5 25+ 38.6 108.8 All 35 90.8
  5. (GIRS/2) + 22 (round up) = Putting Benchmark for that round. (Scratch golfer) I’d increase the +22 incrementally as handicap of player increases as well.
  6. My bad. I meant 11
  7. I cannot find a #7 center shaft for the life of me!
  8. Original putter head came loose. Returned but unrepairable. Agreed on a second putter with similar fitting numbers. You graciously cut down and rebalanced a longer putter with different sight line. Customer service & communication was great. I don’t see an order number but have the email chain with Matt if it helps at all. GREAT putter but I simply can’t get it to the hole with this particular weapon. (Shot -2 for nine holes with her replacement). Local muni greens are 8-10 this time of year, get quicker mid summer with local championship courses running 12. I’d be happy
  9. I never liked center shafted putters until my LAB 2.1 - The shape and size was easy to get over but the length of stroke required to get the ball to the hole on typical muni greens has proven difficult to overcome. Add wind to the mix and it’s found a spot on the bench. In practice, I roll putt after putt in. In reality, my 30+ year golf brain won’t allow me to swing the putter that long on the course. Sometimes on really long lag putts (50’+) I seriously feel like it’s a 93 stroke For me, it’s a one way miss - SHORT - which is putting death. The 30’+ are consistently (overly)s
  10. +1 on the Cleveland Huntington Beach 10.5C Premier As mentioned the deep milled face feels very soft and produces a very dull thud on contact. Face is shallow and head is pretty compact. Love the finish with black shaft. Regripped with a bargain basket black Winn putting grip and it quickly knocked my LAB 2.1 out of the bag. Played nine holes with it on Wednesday (-2)
