    Nice work. I still grip my putter the old way sometimes and immediately it feels different. I guess I’m getting used to the LHL finally.

    It still felt awkward at times, but it’s coming along. It doesn’t feel like stranger anymore.

    At first it’s very The Stranger.

    Question for the LHL putters among us. I’ve finally gotten comfortable and have really been enjoying this since.

    My question, which grip do you play? I struggled early, but noticing a lot of LHLers using the 2.0 Mid, finally tried one. I’ve found it to feel the most comfortable and stable with the stroke, despite never caring for it with a conventional grip.

    Pistol gtr tour, or flatso 1.0

    Allows my left thumb to sit in the top easier, and the grip rests in the lifeline of my palm

    I had the GT Tour on my first 1w and I never could get comfortable with it. Granted, that was my first try at LHL again after a few brief stints a few years ago. Later when I switched to the 2.0 on a different 1w, I’d been LHL for a month or so. Maybe that has something to do with it too.

    I've heard that left hand low with a Garsen Max grip is pretty damn good...(see: Stenson)

    I held one once and honestly loved it but, haven't seen one since to confirm my initial thoughts -- so I haven't bought one.

    I felt like the Winn Pro X 1.18 was too big when I was using the Betta down at the EC. Never got comfortable with that setup the whole time and couldnt wait to get back to the Scotty with his midsize grip. That grip just feels perfect for LHL and my giant hands.

    I'm really far from being a great putter but Saturday was an all time LOW for me.

    43 or 44 putts, including 5*3 putts in a row. Greens were the fastest I've ever played at like a 13 or 14. Pins were on ridges/side hills etc.

    ugh - maybe I need to practice more/at all.

    what was killing you? lag putting? 3-5' footers?

    Salt Creek - played very dry and it was a 6:00 round which didn't help.

    Lag putting for sure. Couldn't get anything inside 6 ft at all. If you were above the hole and missed the hole, it would roll 10ft by.

    Ok - this is AMAZING, but I contacted Bradley putters and asked how to add weight to the putter, and the offered to ship me a new putter that is 350g instead of 320g FOR FREE.

    I love dealing with companies like this, and will continue to sing their praises.
