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 personally prefer the the dot & line combo look that Justin Rose has on his.

Interested to see how he does with it in the bag.
Dude's deck is missing a few cards when it comes to putting.  He will try anything at this point.

Isn't it? Haha, he's definitely chomping at the bit to improve, that's for sure.

I feel like I'm the only one not using the TM Spider

Agreed!

I'm sorry but that grip is horrendous!

I use the jumbo version on my putter and it's a really good grip. One of the most durable grips I've ever had. Stacy Lewis used the same one and it got her to #1 in the world.

It often depends on which one you pick up. Many do sit open, some do sit square.

I'm not hating on it but why is the red so popular? Just something different or guys like red, or is it an actual golf reason like the contrast of red to the green looks good?

Someone mentioned TM makes their players other than DJ play the red so it stand out on TV. Probably the most reasonable explanation but I've heard others like - red has a softer insert, or stands out more on the green, looks cooler, etc.

Hoping Rory wins or does really well because I've got a Spider Tour I'm probably going to unload. Kind of want to keep it because the feel is awesome but I just got fit into something totally different..

I really like it with the black face, sightline, and black nickel shaft. I'd buy this in a double bend if they made it.

Rors just needs to stick with a Scotty then let Paul and Scotty work with him to help cure his putting woes.  If I were in his shoes TM couldn't find enough money to make me put down my Cameron flat stick !  Glad to play TM across the rest of the bag but no way my putter.  As a great patriot once said, "Give me a Cameron, or give me death"  :taunt:

There is a difference in the insert.  The Black version has a more firm insert then the red.

Rory is putting fine this year. If his stats qualified, he would be in the top 30%. He is putting much better than Speith (according to the golf channel)

I have $80 stashed away for one of these spiders in 2 years when the hype is over and there's a massive supply on the used market.

In my opinion it's the neck.  Very few slant necks on the market.  I have one in my spider Si and that was my favorite thing about that putter.  Wish other companies would offer in their mallets.

He's referring to the amount of people using the red putter instead of the black iteration of the same putter.  And to your last point, sounds like odyssey is going to be releasing this neck on their models soon

RED is synonymous with energy in many religions, which is why I play the same Volvic matte red ball as Bubba :dntknw:

I like the red color. Its not like its a bright cherry red, its almost a maroon color. I find it easy to line up even without a sightline.

Rory is going to spend this season proving the TM Spider is not a cure-all.

I'd be surprised to see it still in play next tourney, but won't know till we know.
No putter can help this kid!

He'll figure it out, Rory's always been a bit of a streaky player. The days of a single player dominating the tour and racking up majors are over IMO. The fields are just too deep and pockets are too full.

Rory will eventually figure it out.
