I've had 2 putters since 2003; a Scotty Newport beach and an Odyssey 2ball fang.

Now, I don't go back and forth between these putters for play. I've gamed the 2ball fang since I bought it. But I sometimes take the Scotty out just to toy with it. The Scotty was my darling when I practiced a bunch. Made 9 birdies with the beautiful thing once in 2005. Got into a bad stroke stretch and the 2ball fang just held its line so well and I was super confident from 10 feet and in.

Now, the more I played around with both putters, i noticed something peculiar. From 10 feet and in, the 2ball fang is money...like 8 or 9 out of 10 money. The Scotty...6 maybe 7 out of 10. BUT, 12-20 feet, it's the opposite. The Scotty is usually 5 or 6 out of ten and the 2ball fang is 3-5 out of ten.

I've been to a SAM puttlab and I generally don't rotate the face much. With the 2ball I got about 1.6 open to nearly 2 closed. At address I'm .6 open and at impact I'm .7 closed. Path is 3.5-4 degrees left.

Research on evnroll putters showed me.that the er7 is around 30 degrees of toe hang. It's the evnroll I like the best.

I'm wondering if a 30 degree toe hang putter just might be the best for me for both worlds...under 10 feet and greater than 10 feet. Seems greater than 10 feet for me is better with some face rotation but I love the stability of the high moi inside 10 feet. While the evnroll isn't as high moi as the 2ball fang, people swear the grooves help make more putts inside 10 feet.

Any of you physics geeks out there got anything on the 30.degree toe hang being my sweet spot putter?

You make 50% from 20'? Are you Jordan Spieth?

I wish. I'm a practice green champion. It's easy to make 5 or 6 of 10 from 20 when you know the line. Different story when you put green reading into the mix on a "1 shot at it" from 20 feet while playing.

Might try Odyssey #1W. I think it's listed as being face balanced, but I have one and it definitely has little toe hang.

I'm also on look out for putters with a little bit of toe hang.

#1W is nice, but I'm not a fan of the insert. Rolls the ball nice but I can't tell where on face I hit the ball.

If you like the Odyssey 1W, or any version for that matter, the metal x milled is a non-insert option.
