@YankeeVol and @1972 Grad

Found this at a “play it again sports” for $30.

Called Ken Giannini himself. Said it was a prototype from 12 yrs ago. He made 10 of them for tour players.

$30 ?????? That’s a $300/$400 putter. If y’all have a “play it agin sports” close, check it out. Sometimes they have no idea what they really have.

Nice... I'm notorious for heading to the used club section at the PGA Superstore.

Only after "backlash." Brah, you won nearly $1.3 mil, 10% ain't a thing*

*I get they had an agreement for up to Top 10, probably should have added something for a win. But why be a d*** and go uber cheap besides being an a**?

Kuchar to apologize to caddie, pay him full $50K
Agree .......
Its not the first time I’ve heard about his “stinginess.” First time it’s gone public.

Finally dried out enough here to get a decent round in, still a bit mushy in places but overall not too bad considering the rainfall we had this month. I love 60+ degree days in February ! Game and swing need work, probably should have spent a couple of hours on the range before, but was itching to play. Whole foursome was in agreement, fall out of the car and tee it up.

Hit balls today and had to hit off a mat on the driving range. First swing, I stuck it in the ground and it felt like my right wrist was going to explode. Man, I hate those things.

I would rather not hit than hit off a mat. The range I usually go to has Zoysia for turfgrass, and they put down sand during the year. Even when it's dormant, it doesn't get muddy. The root system is really dense. Another one I go to has Bermuda, but they overseed with rye in the Winter. It gets really soft, mushy, and muddy when it rains like it has lately. I hate hitting one fat off that, and splatter mud in my eyes.

Zoysia range......don’t see many of those. Gets beat up and doesn’t recover as quickly. Love hitting long irons and fairway woods off it. Hate hitting short irons though.

It's at The Crossings, near Jonesboro. They have 2 levels of tees that they rotate , and each is probably 18-20 feet front to back, and 150-175 feet across. Plenty of room, and not a lot of use.
