recommendations???
Hey Everyone:

Well I had a flukey thing happen to me two Friday's ago. On the second tee I felt and heard a pop in my left ankle and would you believe I partially tore my Achille's Tendon.

Anyways, the prior 10 rounds or so my putting stroke went to the dogs. The tendency that I have been having is that my weight has been terrific but I have been twisting my putter head through impact resulting in missing left steady. So I've been thinking of a new putter while I'm on the mend. For the most part my putter and I have been on a on again off again relationship.

Here's what I'm looking for. Something with a good alignment aid and relatively heavy to aid against twisting. Does anybody have any recommendations???? Thanks.

Alex

Any Scotty Cameron is 33/350, and maybe even some added lead tape if you need to go heavier.

 

As far as good alignment aid, SC doesnt have anything like those huge 3 ball Oddysseys etc...if that is what your looking for, its about the only place to get it...

 

I think maybe a Futura Phantom Mallet or Red X in 33/350, with the three sight lines would be a good one. Anything else from almost each manufacturer will just be a sight line and or dot.

i too like a heavy putter - 350 grams or more, in addition i like a short putter - 33". currently i am experimenting between a scotty red x 33/350, scotty futura 33/350, scotty newport beach 35/330 with the shaft cut to 33" and 40 grams of lead weights and tunsten powder in the shaft at the hosel, yes callie 33", and a yes olivia 33" with the tungsten weights for 370 grams.

 

so far, i am getting the best results with the red x and the olivia. both are mallets, and both have 3 site lines on the top which make lining up putts super easy. i find the red x to have the best distance control. the olivia isn't bad, but on short putts the ball sometimes comes off the putter faster than expected. the red-x is more a solid, but not hard feel and the olivia head is hollow and sort of feels like putting with a wood. right now the red-x is winning the spot in my bag, mostly because i had it first and its proven itself and i am cautious of tinkering right now while my putting is getting much better (3 putts are in half, no more 4 or more putts - yes it happened, and many of the 2 putts the second putt is a tap or with in 18").

Hoganardi Big Ben or Baby Ben. They're really inexpensive, put a great roll on the ball, have a huge alignment aid and you can fill up the a little of the honeycomb cavity if you want to make it heavier.
