Hooked on Putting. That’s about the limit to my golf for awhile, while I recover from major shoulder surgery. By the time my recovery is complete, I will have graduated from really good putter to mercenary. One of the mercenary’s new tools is likely to be the new Lancelot blade putter from French company ARGOLF. Take a look at its simplistic beauty.
This blade design reminds me of my old Ping Zing and Ping My Day putters. Had the My Day not been stolen out of my bag years ago, I might still be using it.
I’ve just started testing out the Lancelot and I love the look and feel already. The first putt I tried with it was about a 30 footer and the distance was nailed, so it responded just as it felt it should.
The milled lines in the face (above) put a nice roll on the ball.
In the photo above the putter’s clean lines and alignment are on display.
This is just a quick preview. I will be spending quite a bit of time testing out the Lancelot and posting my full review soon. Stay tuned.
I need more putters… so I can put all of these grips on them! I just got a batch of samples in from TourMark. These are the exact type of feel I love, tacky and with some softness to them. Check them out:
There’s a Scotland themed one too. I neeeeeed that one. I hope to test some of these when the snow melts this spring. I may give a few out to some pals to test too. I can’t change putter grips that often. As much as I want to try them all I don’t want to muck the one part of my game up that is good, my putting.
Today’s episode of “strange golf clubs you find in your dad’s basement” features the “Transparent Olympic Mallet Putter.” This unique putter features a high MOI (moment of inertia), olympic rings which provide a visual aid to the golfer for alignment, and a custom protective cover.
I’ve got roughly six putters in my review queue. I thought I’d do something special and dedicate a whole week to putters, posting one putter review per day. I’ll be reviewing some amazing putters, some crazy putters (like the HOG 14 ball putter pictured), and some putters that just make me ask the three letter question: WTF?
Stay tuned. Putter review #1 is coming shortly!
