Piretti putters political 

Lol did the same b/c I don't have Instagram. I was wondering what could possibly be political about putters. I haven't kept up with a lot of the putter brands because I've used the exact same flat stick for fifteen years now (a Newport 2 of some style (I don't even keep track of what year/model)), and before that, an Anser 2 for fifteen years. I'm boring when it comes to putters, I know.

***no politics*** some of the nicest guys you’ll meet there at Piretti. They like to have fun online and don’t take themselves too seriously. Never had any issues with fittings, orders, response time, etc. They put out a great product and know their customer base. 

 

Any thoughts on how the putters sound compared to anything else out there? Asking for a friend...

Hard to say now, looking at his stats he switched around The Open to this putter, there are no SG Putting stats from The Open but at the 3M his was +1.329, St. Jude -0.035 and nothing yet from Northern Trust. 

 

With his old putter his best SG was +1.363 from the US Open where he MC, and had 4 tournaments with -1.1 or worse but seemed to hover around +/-0.5 stroke. 

 

Could this putter be a turning point for Tony? Is it just a different look until he's back with the Piretti? Who knows will see, I hope this putter gets him a win or two, I like Tony and don't want to see him as a "What if" kinda player.

Looks like he is much more confident in that 6-10 foot range. He knocked in some big putts on the back 9 with plenty of speed, which was a definite issue before when he was in contention. Love seeing him get the win, hopefully the flood gates have opened for him!

So happy for this man! Well deserved and long overdue. So fun to watch.

 

Can't wait to see what's next for TF.  A little confidence and a solid flat stick can go a long way.

This looks like a double wide model of the Anser 2. Gosh really wish PING PLD was released for retail lol.

Tony's Putting SG from Northern Trust a +0.997 so the putter is working but I wouldn't say that was his winning reason.

I think you are really short selling how well Tony putted for the most part all week at the NT. He was 16th in strokes gained putting in the event while losing 2.4 shots strokes gained putting in the 3rd round when he shot 68.

 

In rounds 1,2 and 4 his strokes gained putting were 1.393, 2.738 and 2.338 against the field. While his ball striking was great he also made a ton of putts that greatly contributed to his win. Especially his par putt on 18 in the final round.
