Can be done remotely. I was going to be in Phoenix anyway so thought it would be a cool experience 

Thank you and all those who took the time to respond. 

 

I agree going into the HQ for a in-person fitting is an awesome experience. For the mortals like me, we may have to resolve to a remote fitting. LOL.

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences here with us!

 

I am very curious to hear if they fit you only indoors with the high speed cameras, or also partly outdoors on real grass with longer putts and putts with considerable breaks too.

Congrats! Looking forward to hearing about your experience and seeing the results.

Thanks for the info!  What model putter did you get, is there any “extras” in terms of costs involved i.e. custom engravings etc.?

 

I've posted pictures in another thread if you look at my profile but I went with the DS72 (Hovland's putter). No extra charge for engraving and they offer a few different options there as well. Honestly, I think it's a pretty decent price for what you get -- a totally custom, 1-of-a-kind putter built to your exact specs (and you can't buy most PLD putters off the rack too). Definitely worth the time/investment if you're in the market for a custom putter. Just my 2 cents.

And done!!! Guys I don’t even know where to begin. Just an all around cool/awesome experience. Jeff and Alex were beyond awesome!!! They found something that in 25 years of playing had never realized and Instantly got me rolling the ball better. Was very cool to see myself on camera and to actually see all the numbers that go into the stroke. The number of PLD putters possible is a great selection and I will tell you Anser wide and Anser 2 wide are now available and super cool. They were in the middle of making Bubba backup Anser wide putter so got to see his being made.

 

for me Tyne double bend carbon steel with patina flat face and sight line on top. 35 inches 4 degrees flat 3 degrees loft. I haven’t putted with a 35 inch putter in over 25 years turns out 34 was too short and did not have my eyes properly over the ball. I cannot recommend enough the fitting or have the cradle fitting done!! Jeff and Alex know their stuff. I will forever be a lifelong Ping fan and this was amazing 

 

some pics I could snap of the slab and some of the lefty PLD putters

Fantastic stuff.  Thanks so much for the update and pictures.  The carbon Tyne is a super-cool choice. 

 

It's incredible how far ahead of the retail offerings these PLDs are.  They ooze class and the feel and looks are just awesome.

 

How difficult / nerve-wracking was it to putt on the concrete slab?

That's awesome man I need to go there one day when I have the funds to do so. As said if I can get an Anser D or Anser 2D with a #4 neck I'd be happy.

RN - how long did the entire process take once you got there?

So about an hour and a half once we got started. I told them I was wide open to what the fitting suggested as putting has always been my weakest part of my game. I came away with a putter that was about as opposite as possible to what I was gaming so I’m very excited to get it out on the course. Jeff said he would ha e it to me my next week!!!!

Short putts were so easy when we did the long putts for weight things got a little nervous. All I could think of was please don’t let me putt this off the slab!!!!

I already told Jeff I will want a Anser 2 wide as well so I can go back and forth. Any hosel you can think of they can go with.

nice write up, and i'm happy for you.

 

how did they determine what type of face milling to go with? 

 

also how customizable were the heads in regards to site lines and dots?

Face milling  he asked what ball I played tp5. So got some of those balls and started rolling with all different face types. Asked how fast of greens I played on and how I wanted it to feel off the face. Was between flat face and light milking decided to try flat face with the option to mill face later if I changed my mind. As far as mines go it’s pretty much whatever single double triple line dots whatever you want is an option
