When you said "Spaulding," I was expecting this to be the ole' Billy Baroo!That's an awesome tale, and a great ending.
Hopping on your 9th hole putt, I've been burning more lips than Marquis de Sade. I made a minor change to my setup (toe of the putter in the air, essentially to stop me from hooding every put) , and I am rolling the ball great. I think it was Jack who said "I didn't miss the putt, it just didn't go in", and I am feeling that way. I am hitting the ball with the speed I want, on the line I want...it just isn't dropping. It is frustrating, but encouraging at the same time.
For putters, I grew up using my Dad's old high school clubs (Spaulding Blades) As I was generally short and crooked off the tee, making up shots on/around the green was the only way to keep up score wise with my brothers. My putter when I was younger was similar to this. I have tried on occasion mallet putters, and I just don't feel like I have the feel with them. So, as stated above, putters are a very personal thing.
