Which are you?

 

think I'm starting up a quiver instead of the "one".  Wonder how I'll choose.

I’ve had 2 putter styles (4 total putters) since 1998.  I’ve had a Scotty AOP Newport, two versions of the Bettinardi SS7 and a Bettinardi Signature Series 9 (same style as the SS7 but without the fit face).  I’d say I fall in the monogamy category with a few divorces.  Hell, I’ve had fewer putters that my golf league partner has had actual wives since 1998!

I've been pretty monogamist to 1 putter this year to my surprise, just been tinkering with grips on it.

So what happens if you are getting a new one every week, but then always realizing that the one true love is the one you have in the bag.

I’m a blade putter and have played blades for years, but I’m currently having a very successful affair with a spider. It will stay in whilst it works.

I play essentially 1 putter all year...but I buy others. Tinker with others. In the offseason will likely grab a new gamer...but try to be consistent all year with it

Harem for me also.   I am not a decent putter for the last decade or so.   8802, Bullseye, JAT, Anser, Sik Armlock,  Cally “101” (#7) style.  If I have putter that mis-behaves significantly, it ends out behind the water heater.  Sometimes for Months.  When average putts per round creep above 34, I rotate.  When they approach 40, I go shopping.  A Simple process that has got me where I am today.

 

Dazed & Confused…..

Definitely in the monogamous category and prefer long term relationships but just haven't been able to find "the one" yet. Once I commit, I'm usually in that relationship for a year plus and never waiver other than window shopping. The relationships evolve over time maybe a new hair style aka grip and some weight fluctuations aka lead tape, but nothing ever feels perfect. I do reminisce a little on the one that maybe got away after an argument. Her name was Scotty Newport II. Sometimes when I'm having a bad day she'll pop in my head and I'll smile. Maybe I was wrong to start an argument and  it wasn't worth it to end things when she was simply having a bad day. Well it was actually a couple bad days, but man the feeling I would get when I was with her on a good day... I've been chasing that high ever since. Wonder what she's doing now?

As long as she has no sight lines and is naked, I’m in! Two Odyssey’s right now, a #6 milled and an Eleven S, in the bag is the new 8802, which has a great feel!

I have had 3 putters since I started really playing in 2005.  Yes! Tracy 2, Odyssey 2 ball fang mallet, and My SC Fastback 2.  I liked the blade but tended to leave putts short.  2 ball fang was massive, and I could never control speed.  I could honestly game the Fastback 2 until it breaks.  My misses are typically misreads more than anything.  It would take something like LAB that has a concept that genuinely intrigues me to change my putter.  But I am not the type that has 3 or 4 putters at one time.

I am a blade putter guy so my two are modeled after a Ping Zing and Ping Anser.  My gamer is a Byron Morgan Epic Day putter which I have been gaming since 2014, with exception of 2021.  I put my backup, Byron Morgan DH89 GSS, in play for most of that season.  I went back to the Epic day in late 2021 and am still gaming it.  Therefore I practice putter polyamory, but brand monogamy.

Nah. It's always you. I've given you plenty of chances, and have brought you back into my life numerous times, only to be let down again.

 

I have to say, that i have been with the same putter for quite some time now. I even have two of the same model with different necks. I think I'm down to only about 7 putters right now I've collected over the years. I did get three from my dad.

I’ve had more than a few divorces follow a great honeymoon.  Hoping that having a few within their honeymoons I can stretch it out to quite awhile.   
 

so how do you choose.    thinking a cold putter for a day gets it a reset rest.

@MattM97 which grips, why? what have you been looking for and how has it gone? I'm uber curious about how people feel about and choose their putters grips.

 

I'll preface this with the fact that I have massive hands so what I'm looking for is not what others look for. 

 

Been a longtime user of the Garsen Ultimate, still love it but want something a hair thinner and touch heavier. On my PLD I got it with the PP58 Mid Cord but after a few months indoors I decided for something else, just couldn't settle my hands on the grip, hands overlapped too much.

 

Put a Garsen Pistol TPE when I did a shaft change and it's been mixed, some days great others I'm not comfortable with it. Some options I have are the Garsen Quad Tour Pistol NT on an extra putter and it's not bad but not sure if I want to toss my extra on my gamer. 

 

I have the Winn AVS Mid Pistol on another putter and roll it nice bit I feel like it might be like the PP58 over time. I haven't used their grips in forever but seriously considering the SS Tour 2.0 cause the new ones are half decent. 

 

I find for me I like rounder grips with little to no taper so my hands can just grab the grip. A ridge or Pistol or whatever I play with too much and my stroke gets shakey.
