Hard to tell just by looking, but the insert looks like an improvement over the one in the last Scottsdale line.  That was probably the worst feeling insert I've ever tried.

Not a jab at you, but would anyone expect him to say otherwise?

Almost no perimeter weighting on that... looks like Ping's version of a bullseye.

It looks like the same grooves that are already featured on their Serene line of putters.  The groove depth varies from center to perimeter.  It feels good, and rolls well.  I remember asking the rep why this came out first in a Ladies' club and when would it be out in their regular lineup.  Now we know.

It's a ZB S, a model they have already had out in previous series.  Hunter at one time used a D66 IWI which has a similar toe flow.

With all the putter models that Ping makes, would you expect him to use it if it didn't work and he didn't like it?

Foot Joy has a new line, I can't remember the name.. M series or something of that sort.  They have a spikelss version and a spiked version.  They have a very low profile and pliable sole so you feel more connected with the ground.  They are very cool looking shoes.  They have a leather version and a nylon weave version in some crazy colors.  All have a 2 year waterproof warranty.  Hunter was wearing them in the promo sheet for the shoes.  The rep said he loves them.

Putter looks great.  I was thinking the same thing about his shoes as soon as I looked at the pic.  Those are some nice looking golf shoes.  Can't wait to see them in person.
I mean, I like golf balls

My first thought too, the hosel and shaft bend look like the old bullseye.

It was really weird.

Both Hunter and Westwood sported the Nome en route to victories this past year...

...then the Nome was gone from both their bags well before year's end.  Weird I say.  Something about the Nome made the honeymoon end sooner than normal, and I wonder what it is.
