Yeah but you may not actually need one.  I think RM does...still spotty IMO on those 6-10 footers.  Anyone know if DJ got his proto irons yet?

Personally, I think a dot instead of the sight line is a better alignment aide and would probably look better over all. Hopefully this putter helps his game.

I was planning on doing it to my DJ spider, but it ended up not making the cut anyway, haha. It would have looked nice.

I thought since no tour pro could make a putt or cut with the spider the last couple weeks that maybe the fad had run its course.  (Insert half-hearted smiley emoji here)

If they could just get a pic of Tiger putting balls to a coffee mug on the floor in rehab with this thing, there would literally be no limit to the number of these that TM could sell.

I have the red and love it, best putter I've ever owned (and I've been through a ton). I really think the color works because of the green/red opposite of the color wheel. When I picked it up the first time, I wasn't all that impressed by the look; but when I put it behind a ball and rolled a few, I was hooked. Everything about it feels right to me, it'll be my gamer for a long time.

Dude's deck is missing a few cards when it comes to putting.  He will try anything at this point.
