Should have been ‘too pretty’.

Don’t know why you can’t edit posts from an iPad.

Odyssey O-Works Black Jailbird Mini S (slant neck/toe hang version), cut down to 33.5 inches with a Rosemark NextGen 1.52 black/silver grip.

If I can't hit putts with this thing, I'm hopeless.

I, uh, also have the exact same putter coming from CPO next week. Long story short, I thought the one I have now was lost in the mail, so I got one from CPO during their sale for the same price. But the one I thought was lost arrived today. Keep an eye out on BST if interested.

Buddy of mine picked up a used Gunboat H for about $300. He's even worse than I am. He changes putters about as often as his socks but I gotta admit he's putting pretty well with it - in the store anyway.

I've just bought my first Bettinardi putter... closely followed by my second 😉

I really like this simple mallet design, it's starting to rust which looks great. I play a moorland course in the north west of England so play on soft greens for 6 months of the year, the grooves on the face gets the ball rolling nicely. It was a bargain for £100 with brand-new headcover included 👍

I have always loved and putted great with a Napa putter especially in the height of summer when our greens firm up and get slick or when I play at a links course. This was great value and will be sticking around for the foreseeable future.

Just picked up a Scotty Concept X and I actually love it! Been a blade guy my whole life but the whole MOI thing interested me and this seemed like a good mix. Finish is gorgeous on it too.

Toulon Indianapolis. Well, I actually bought it over a week ago, but couldn’t share the breaking news before now, due to serving a 2 week ban on here for being a naughty boy.

It’s an amazing putter!
