I just don’t get along with those Sun Mountain putters

I wish Karsten was still alive so that Scotty could come up with some unique putter designs.

(don't say it....no I'm gonna do it). you're not good enough to care this much about equipment      lol.

I can agree with the stamping, but I like rusted clubs and lead tape as it has a nice chew to it.

 

Mine would be: music on course, sunflower seeds and smoking.  Another would be when a group of people start screaming and running around the green because one of them chipped in or made a blood pact with the dark lord to make a putt longer than 5 ft.

Agree with almost everything you have posted.  Music I don't mind as much unless it's so loud that you can hear it from 2 fairways over.

Getting "fit" for a putter is hilarious to me. It's the hammer of the tool box. Yes, there are different styles and you should find one that suites you for sure. But this does not require a professional if you are not a professional.

 

I had no idea it was even a thing until a few months ago.

Blades are ugly, and I don't understand the attraction to them.

Sounds like the guy I was stuck behind yesterday. I had never seen someone take the long a pre shot routine just to slice it dead into the trees. Wow, what a show.

I have a few:

 

  • I think club stamping looks unprofessional and cheap.
  • Rust isn't a look; it's a dirty club. Get some CLR, would ya!
  • Lead tape might be an experiment, but it looks terrible, and poisonous.

 

What are your unpopular opinions about equipment?

Scott Cameron is a Ping knockoff.

 

Titleist is the Judge Smails of the equipment industry.

 

PXG is the AL Czervik of golf equipment. 

 

The Pro V1 is king....all the rest are commoners.

      Please put any questions or comments here. 
       
      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
