    Re: Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    470 for a state of the art driver that won't knock a shot of your score or 260 for a putter using proven physics that will, and more. No contest.
    And, your equipment will be bigger than anyone else's.
    Seriously, these putters are superb. Do yourself a favour and try one.

    Re: Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    Well, I missed my first putt of 3 feet or less on the 71st hole of the weekend & that was because I didn't hit it firmly enough not because I pulled or pushed it. Yesterday I took us from all square to dormie 3 in three holes with putts of 5 to 6 feet. If you choose the right line with this putter it's almost impossible not to putt the ball down that line, the putter virtually swings itself. My putting was noticeably better, everyone remarked on it.

    The confidence it gives you on holeable putts is great. You just choose a line & concentrate on the pace. I really like it, despite being very sceptical when I first saw one.

    I did tell you and Hickory 1, ye of little faith. As you say, it's the effect on one's confidence that is most noticeable. I expect to hole every putt now. I don't, obviously, but I scare the living daylights out of the hole regularly. At least I won't have to give you as many shots next time

    There's nowt like first hand experience. The test will be in the summer with fast, curly downhill putts. I don't really see a problem with this, though, as you just choose the length of stroke, take the putter back & virtually let it swing itself back to the ball. It's much harder to give it a bit extra or decelerate & the fact that the ball comes off the face quite softly makes it easy to control. I did leave one long putt 6 feet short yesterday - I holed the next one!

    Ive read some articles that suggest heavier putters on faster greens and lighter putters on slower ones.

    I think Im a heavier putter person so these cure ones have me interested.... which is rare for me and putters!

    Re: Cure putters. Anyone tried one?

    I am now a complete convert & evangelist. Since starting to use the putter I have only missed one putt that I would say I shouldn't have missed. The confidence the club gives you on 3 to 4 footers is marvellous. Choose the correct line & strength & you've holed it. With my old putter I lost count of the number of short, sometimes very short, putts I missed.

    Today I shot 5 over, with no birdies, but I didn't miss one putt I should have holed & knocked in two or three vital ones for pars.

    You might think that such a heavy putter would be difficult on long putts / fast greens. Our greens are still quite quick & my distance control is better than it has been for a long time. Most of today's second putts were given.

    Can't see me going back to a conventional putter.
