Bobby Grace GT series

Recommended Posts

 

 

The 100% milled body of the MacGregor® Bobby Grace GT Putter has strategic holes in the putter frame to further increase the MOI and stability on off-center hits. Dual silver bands surround a precision-milled, paint-filled centerline, to aid in alignment. It incorporates a deep center of gravity directly in line with the ball and a soft forged beryllium-copper face insert, reverse annealed, offers maximum feel and feedback.

Note: If you can't be bothered reading about the details, I've sumarised it below.

 

As you look through a rack of putters, this one doesn't seem to stand out because of the some of the more crazier and stranger designs. In fact some of these, as my friend correctly describes them, are closer to branding irons than putters.

 

The first time you have a putt with this putter though, you forget about how strange it looks because of how well the ball rolls and how it feels which suprised me quite a bit. I tried the M6.4K in both the CS and the heel shafted. At adress, the CS version blocks the view of the ball abit in contrast to other centre-shafted putters. the heel shafted one, which I prefered was a lot better to the eye with both versions being face balanced. Also at adress, the putter sits open, which many professionals prefer.

 

The putter has just the right amount of weight on it to keep it on track as you swing it and the fact that it is face-balanced also so helps to guide a good arc. Lining up the putt is as easier than anything I have ever used before even easier than the 2-ball (although I think the 2-Ball is the most inaccurate thing ever). This is because Bobby Grace has not tried to get over complicated with the alignment, using a simple straight-forward, logical STRAIGHT LINE rather than trying to sybomlise the back of the hole (Scotty Cameron Futura), using circles to align (2-ball), half a dinner plate (Ping DOC series) or 2-ball ripoffs. The putter also has an alignment strip which is about the same width as a golf ball to aid as a secondary alignment aid.

 

The feel of the putter is amazing with its berryllium copper insert. It has a solid, soft but not polymer soft yet responsive and 'alive' feel with amazing feedback. Putts within a metre are almost a gimme, and yes even the downhill left-to-right sliders for right handers. Putts within 10 metres all feel sinkable with this baby. You always get the right distance, holing speed and direction and, shock-horror, it even goes in if you read it right. The only drawback to this putter are the long putts which are a little harder to judge distance but is easily overcome by practice.

 

The concept to this putter also amazes me by its simplicity. I mean, the idea is to putt all the weight at the back by making a face, metal bars to connect the weight, lighten the weight of the bars by holes and putt a block of weight at the back to ensure a perfect roll while making a line on top as long as possible to help with alignment.

 

Overall, I must say that this putter is a great "branding iron." That said, Bobby Grace and Macgregor to be fair, are definitely an underated company in the wide world of golf. I mean, if Palmer and Nicklaus used Macgregor in their prime, surely it must be good. Sadly though, they are not really getting second glances among those giants like Titleist and Taylor Made (not trying to discredit them and they do make great clubs).

So if your in the hunt for a new putter and want something easy to align or that is forgiving, try this one out. For all those who are conventionalists and like your blades or Anser styles or others, then your definitely missing out on something special. But consider this, I used a Newport 2 religiously a couple of years with success and now I have a M6.4K-GT heel shafted putter in my bag. If that doesn't convince you, Bobby Grace still offer the M series which are the traditional styles of putter with the precision and feel I have come to love. But that's only my opinion. Don't buy Bobby Grace putters just because I said so. Make that any putter. Make sure you try them out first.

 

Adress/Look

-Easy to align using a a long line rather than 2-balls or a resemblance of a hole

- Centre-shafted models slightly block out view of the ball, with a half-shaft slight offset in the GT series and no offset in the MOI series.

-Both sentre-shafted and heel shafted models are face balanced

-Slightly open at adress when it sits

 

Feel

-Soft (not polymer soft), solid, responsive, alive feel

 

Efectiveness

-1 metre/4 footers are a gimme

-inside 10 metres- everything seems to go in, you always get the right length and line

-10+ metres- harder to judge distance

 

Cons

-Expensive- This can be overcome by getting a slightly cheaper MOI model rather than a GT model

-Hard to judge distance on long putts

-Takes up space in the bag

-easy to dent, scratch and ding because of the aluminium

Nice review, i couldn't agree with you more, Bobby Grace has made some butt kicking putters.

 

I've been playing my MOI GT CS for a year now, and since that time I've bought another M6.4K CS tour model with a solid face. I switch putters alot but during the time I've used these Bobby Grace MOI's I feel like every 15 footer I step up to is going in. I don't mean I'm trying to be positive about my putting thoughts, I mean they are going in! :dntknw:

Hi I am Bob and I am a putterholic; however I hope I have overcome my addiction.

 

After having putted with an original bullseye, Scotty Cameron TeI3 Newport Two, Cameron Pro Platinum Newport Two, Cameron Red X (custom shop with extra weight), Big Oak Havana, Big Oak Boston B, Odyssey Two Ball (Black Insert & White), Ping Anser, Zebra, Fat Lady Sings, Never Compromise Voodoo, Otey Crisman, Bettinardi, Yes, and finally the new Red X5 I have settled on a gamer that just won't come out of the bag.

 

My gamer is a Tour Issue Bobby Grace GT-5 with Tour Center Shaft and the HSM insert. This club is absolutely magic, I keep wanting to find something that looks more traditional but the ease of alignment with this putter is phenomenal and the distance control is unreal. This club has helped me in dropping several strokes off my handicap.

 

I hope I can stop reading every magizine that comes along and stop cruising the golf shops and ebay looking for that magic wand. I am so sold on this putter that I am seeking to acquire another just like it as a backup.

I use a 46" with a grip and swing much like Natalie Gulbis. It is not a true long putter/sweeper because I am 6'4" tall so I anchor it to my belly with the top hand...beautiful control with this putter. The only negative I have had with it is that really fast green are tough because of the hard face. A touchy 5 footer downhill is a little scare with that putter...otherwise, amazing putter with great balance and MOI

Can't believe I've neglected this thread for so long. In 3 words or less: Mini is money! :cheesy:

 

This putter has been my fulltime backup for over a year now, and I friggin' love it. After flip-flopping around with a number of mallets, I've come to settle on various forms of the Anser 4 (different anser 4's, bettinardi bb18, mills klassic, custom byron, etc.) as my preferred shape and have almost shunned all mallets. The GT-Mini is the only mallet that finds my bag with any regularity, and every time I need a crutch, I know I can rely on it. Great roll, great feel, great distance control, and despite being crazy easy for alignment, isn't overly distracting for someone used to a smaller, more traditional putter. This is probably the most conservative, middle-road high-moi putter on the market, and works perfectly. Easy 5 star rating from me.

Had my M5k for 4 years and am embarassed it took so long to review it. It is the straightest putter I have yet hit and has beat well over a dozen of the most expensive putters I could buy. I traded for it originally when new for a Scotty pro platinum. While the Scotty is worth more now than this thing I PROMISE I have made more putts than 5 scottys and thats what counts. The poster above is right tho, it is a touch more difficult to get the right lag distance from 40 plus feet, this thing wants to roll out so be warned.

Easiest 5 star choice there is for ratings. If you want cute looking this aint it, if you want putts to fall then this is your flat stick
