Watching live from the PGA this morning and DJ was practice putting with a blade putter (assuming his old Scotty). When did he stop using the Spider?  Or does he practice with the blade?

He's been using the spider all tournament and has been trying a Juno or Soto on practice greens for a couple weeks

He played the spider all week (practice rounds and Thursday/Friday) and he was not putting that good.   Maybe it is time for a change to see if there is a spark.

Thanks, just seemed kind of odd to be practicing before a round with a different putter.  Maybe we will see a change today

I read somewhere the other day that he always carries the blade and practices with it to help him with feel. I even recall seeing a picture of it propped up next to his bag last week in the Bridgestone photo thread.

I have one of the older limited versions (Itsy Bitsy sole plate) that I might be willing to part with for the right price. Minty fresh too. :)

I always liked his blade better too, but perhaps he has signed a deal to use the spider?

i was also watching the live morning broadcast and couldn't help but think of all the ebay re-sellers that bought the black "DJ" spider putter and what their thoughts were.

Kind of like how there was a craze for the Nike Origin RORS putter, but Rory kept switching putters shortly after the release.

Dustin Johnson is still using his spider so not sure what you're talking about.

Yes, he did end up using his spider putter, but my initial thought was wondering what the re-sellers were thinking.
