    A couple of machine shop jockeys trying to design putters and sucking in plenty of suckers who are too gullible to realize what they are buying …. lol

    Current putter designs are simply variations on a basic design. They are cosmetic marvels and weird sculpting differences with no performance advantages. They deceive the gullible golfer into thinking something new and different will improve their putting performance. It’s all fantasy and no practice required other than 5 minutes on the putting green pre-game.

      Golfers want their putters to rescue them for off-center hits, stroke path errors and face misalignment. They want a bigger sweet spot so they can’t feel their failure. Bullseye and Cashin style putters with a tight sweet spot will give you immediate feedback if your putting stroke is unstable.

        Furthermore, a putting stroke is about or less than 12 inches back and then forth. If you can’t control that stroke distance how can you expect to control a driver swing path?!! Ever think of that?!!

    Putters are pinis symbols in psychoanalysis theory. Men want the fanciest pinisputters and the heaviest too, to symbolize potency, virility, ability …. but all to no avail if you do not practice heavily. If you don’t use it you will lose it.

      I love my Betti pinus putter cause it’s so fancy and heavy. I polish it twice a day.

    Good luck to Tursky but let’s continue on with “Monday’s Off,” the podcast featuring assistant pro Steve Westphal. This has become — by far — the most interesting podcast on Golfwrx, mainly thanks to Westphal’s insight into a previously undiscussed aspect of golf.

    “….how face milling influences sound and feel.” … hmmmmmm
    Regardless of face finish, milled or mirror polished, there is no significant difference on ball impact. Sound is also not significant unless you are neurotic about sound. As for “feel” is that impact or swinging feel?

      All the heel-toe ‘blade’ putters are knock-offs of Karsten’s Anser design. Any changes are only cosmetic brain delusion and eye candy.
      Impact feel is for gearheads. Swing feel is for pros and good ams who control their putter and stroke through their arms and hands. Nobody can sense a 5 gram difference in putter head weight.

        How about metallurgy? Does it really matter what metal is used… zinc die-cast or machined from a block of soft virgin 302 stainless steel? I’ve seen wood putters with a plastic face insert. Surely a wooden putter can’t perform as well as a steel putter machined to very high tolerances?!!
