yo eric,,,,, regarding the LH putter tht i loan from you?

can sell me?

i only manage to use it for 2 holes in BKK.... might need longer time to test it.. so far it seems okay, juz need to get use to it..

let me know a good price okay? i pay when i go down to den the next time.. tx..

helllo jake...in case you are not aware.....that one is my gamer too.

unless its something that will help you reduce 5 strokes, thereby making you a scratch player. you can return it when you are fully convinced that what you already have is the best.....cheers....DGman

occasionally....and when there is no betting....makes things more interesting mah.....

actually using a left hand putter heightens your awareness and helps you focus better. the only thing is the visual challenge of seeing your ball move in the opposite direction.

Lamts18 rife is very nice too....

for left hand, i prefer mallet. for right hand, blade.

okay tx eric, then i will try for few more games....

true, if we use our opp hand putter, our focus are better. (i normally uses my bro's putter when i got fustrated with my putting during a game)

only prob for me using right hand would be lag... for those >15ft putt... quite difficult to judge the strength...

Today go to BFG to re-grip my new "used putter". At the same time do a swing analysis and to check my "sanded" putter. After measurement with the 'high tech' equipment. Surprise to understand from DGman the polish does not affect the workability. Oh thanks! It is psychology that affect the play.... Anyway now I have 3 putters.... will try to clear one to fund my equipment. and have more space for new.

hi DGman

may i ask is there any kind of check for putter alignment ?

or whether the putter face is closed or open ?

i am suspecting my putter had a closed face, but how do i check to confirm ?

keke

thank you

when you set up your putter and lightly hold this on the palm, it should generally stay square. however if it shuts or pen, then it means that the loft is altered.

what can cause the loft to change...

1. standing on the green and leaning on your putter
2. thumping the putter on the ground after missing 2 footer
3. during transportation
4. dropping the putter
5. training more than 2 hours a day continuously for 3 years

but seriously if you have any doubts, bring it in for a check...

for those who have their putters checked, you can share your experience.

33" Studio Stainless -> 69 degree

34" New Port Studio Select -> 68 degree

or was it the other way round. DGman will know. Have been putting better.. but i still prefer 33" after trying both..

I heard from my coach, pro usually have two putters and depending on the green condition, they will use the appropriate putter for game.

when your putter is the right length and lie. you will naturally have a better set up without having to compensate. with a better set up, you should have achieve eye-over-ball and your hands should fall nicely into a natural aim and release position.

I got a new putter from Eric @ Big Fish this week and it is truly amazing!

I made more putts today than I have years and years. Standing over each putt I knew that the ball was going in the hole before I even stroked it. I knew it because this new putter is fit perfectly for my setup and my stroke.

My confidince is at an all time high right now and my stroke has never felt better because of this perfectly custom fit Zen putter.

If you have not been down to Big Fish to have your putter adjusted to fit you perfectly, I would highly recommend it! Or, treat yourself and have him build you a brand new one.

Your putter is the most important club in your bag. By far!! You use it way more than any other club so it should be perfect.

A new driver shaft can do wonders for your ball flight and maybe give you a little extra distance, but it's not gonna lower your scores. At least not like a perfectly fit putter will.

Try it!

P.S. Thanks Eric!

Brad, its a joy working with you and thank you for your compliments.

i am sure you will find many birdies in the coming games. i will certainly convey your response to Nick Middleton, the founder of Zen Putter.

Most putters comes standard at 71 lie with 4 degree loft and comes in 1 inch increment in length. when you fit a putter, its the job of the fitter to find the golfer's natural posture, then build a putter to fit that setup, posture, ball and hands position and of course the preferred aiming path.

its no secret that when the weight, length, lie and even loft is achieved, the result is a consistent setup and release. as for length, we can be "microscopic" and build the putter length to 1/8 inch increment.

Hope to see more of you at BFG.

cheers..DGman

About time. I nearly forgot how home looks like although I definitely will miss the golf here.

I also know nuts about Joleelyn's youtube post of the Hokkien song. Laughing
