best round of putting ever
i recently added a scotty cameron redx 33"/350 gram to the collection (nike oz mallet 34", scotty cameron newport beach 33" - shaft filled with sugar, and yes callie 33"). WOW!!!!! i was impressed. i got this on a whim. i've hit it a couple of times at the store and had success (then again, what putter doesn't work in the store?) and liked the feel, which suprised me since i don't like the insert on the newport. this however carried the feel and performance from the shop to the golf course.

todays round, and i'll admit the greens were a little fast, but also beat up, i had 28 putts - 11 on the front 9 and 17 on the back. obviously the back wasn't as good to me, with me leaving 3 of my last 5 putts short but that was all me. i know 28 is great for me, especially after averagine 38 putts/round :) over my last 7 rounds (one of which was my infamous 45 putt round :bb: ). i just couldn't believe how easy the putter was to stroke and how it went right where i wanted it to go. and until the last 5 holes, all my missed putts when just a foot past the hole or was just left or right of the hole. i'm notourious for leaving putts short. this was just a whole new experience for me. if only i could have hit rest of my club today (bladed the irons for 11 of my first 13 shots, 4 holes before i hit a decent drive - 2/14 fairways and 2/18 greens :ok: ).

with the success of the red x, i'm not sure about rest the putters i was looking at: yes olivia and scotty cameron futura. being the ho that i am, maybe i will still get them.

well, the second round was not as great as the first round, however a good putting effort from me. i think it started to fall apart on the back nine because i had just left one short and the guy i was playing with tried telling me what i need to do and found myself thinking to much of what i was doing in my stroke. it was my mistake as i should have blocked him out.

 

overall, its staying in the bag for now.

I love my Red X. It is stupid easy to align. Easier then 2/3 ball IMO. The face feels perfect, soft yet solid. I don't like those really soft urethane inserts. They just rob you of feel. I play 32" putter so I need a really heavy head. I took the sole plate off and added another 10 grams of lead tape in the putter, so mine is 32" and 360 grams.

i was thinking about doing that myself, adding more weight in the sole. i like the 350, but i just got a yes olivia and love the feel of it with the tungsten weights - 370 grams. i do love the feell of the red x. its soft, but solid.

I've had alot of good results with the Red X recently. The distance control is very nice and the 350g weighting is disbursed well. With an Anser type putter, lofting, delofting, and raising the toe of the putter head can cause issues for me. Pulling, slicing, etc. With the X, because of the wide sole, it seems to keep it flat and my setup consistent.
