I was just messing around with one on the practice green, very light weight, but they set up nice and roll pretty well

Played a round with my DF putter yesterday and the putter was money on short putts.  Still need to work on my lag putting as I was leaving a lot of them short.  Didn't help that there were 25-30mph gusts on a pretty exposed course.

full disclosure:  i had two bad horrendous putting rounds and am going to try my ping ketsch again.  I am having a difficult time getting my aim down...

I would like to see a more "ketsch" looking mallet with this technology and have a normal grip instead of the press grip.

Actually I was thinking a smaller head size would work for me as well. But hey, I would switch too or mix things up a bit if it ain't aiming right (as a side note check your eye position, and do the "use the ball line and aim stick to middle of hole and check your eye position at setup till you see the ball+stick looks like its going to middle of hole, and not pointing left or right" test).

As well, ball position is everything is you are left eye dominant (for me). It doesn't matter what putter you have in your hand, if your eyeballs are not in the right, confirmed position and your ball position is off at setup,it will go all over the place. Don't care if you putting 6 ft or 66 ft.

So in hindsight, the only advantage the DF is going to give you (assuming all the aim is right) is its natural tendency to keep the face square to the target line and not micro twist into a pull or push...but that all has to do with everything else we do in the putting stroke to be "right" & executed properly as well. My 2c

The ONLY advantage?? Dude! That's what putting is all about meaning keeping the face square to the target line!!

Just fitted for a DF putter due to arrive shortly. The good news about the fitting is that there was ZERO charge as long as I bought the putter. Just he tips I received in the fitting has greatly improved my putting

Well, you've got to make sure the putter fits your eye so you are aiming it where you think you are aiming.

Played today for the first time with my new Directed Force putter and it was money!!

Normally in any given round I have maybe one or two clutch putts but with my DF putter I made about 4-5 which for me is huge. A couple putts I hit off the toe, thought it would not be a great putt, but held its line and went in the hole.

Normally first time out w a new putter and there's always a bit of an adjustment period...can't wait to see how I'm putting w it 3 weeks from now!

Sunk a 46 footer on a Par 5 for a nice Birdie on yesterdays round. So far very accurate but my problem is MY problem in that my practice greens are much faster than the muni greens I play on, bit of any adjustment. However, I still had many burnt edges and still had a more than decent round and if I converted the Pars to Birdies, it would have been a sub-Par round. Kinda like feeling like a Phil or Sergio, can't quite get one across the line, but you can feel it coming :)

One thing I have notice, this putter is absolutely deadly at distance (abliet once I make a mental adjustment for green speeds). I can't recall a time where I dropped some long ones so consistent each round I played with the last round a 60+ and a 40+ and now this week with a 40+. Same course.

*Had to pile on and just as a disclaimer, I have no affiliation with Directed Force Putters or Mr. Presse...

This putter is a game changer for me! Stumbled upon the DF through this site and was intrigued by the overall design and advantages presented. Got fit through my good friend who is a club pro here in PA. Always struggled with 6' and in, especially with head manipulation, plenty of birdie opportunities through each round but was just losing stokes on the green...

After I was fit, I received the putter in just over a week...played my first round with it yesterday...5 under (65), 6 birdies, 4 birdie putts over 10', 24 putts, effortless directional control, 6' and in just felt automatic. Probably the best start imaginable for a new flatstick, right!?!? Today I shot +6 (76) with 4 birdies and 30 putts, obvisously not as stellar, but that was certainly not due to poor putting. The stable feeling the DF provides throughout the stroke is confidence inspiring.

It's not a cure-all by any means (referring to speed and read), and even though it's still the "honeymoon phase" as some might say, I believe this putter gives me the best chance to hit my intended line.

Great start - when you were fit, did you stay with the standard weight in the head and sightlines?

Thanks, Swing!

When I was fit, the pro utilized a DF fitting putter, which was able to be independently adjusted in length and lie to find the optimal setup. The fitting putter is considerably heavier than the final product and being a lefty made it a bit difficult due to the fact that he only had one right-handed actual Directed Force putter. This putter was standard weight setup, in relation to the lie angle, with no additional sight lines, etc. and although subjective, felt and looked great, so I went ahead with the standard weight and sight lines. Honestly I didn't even inquire about the head weight or the option to increase it or the sight lines (not sure if they are customizable) but in any case, I was only focused on the length and lie angle. I couldn't be happier with the setup!

Thanks. I am getting fit when I visit Alameda Golfworks after July 4 near Oakland.

My putting has fallen off the last few weeks. I'd like to try one but no where near me to even look at one much less get fit. Simply no way I spend that kind of coin without trying first.

Weight of head is different depending on your lie angle. More upright = heavier head and vice versa. But you cam request a heavier head i believe.
