     Ok, I read your post on the 30ft putter being in 6' increments.  And the 60ft putter being in 8' increments.  It has helped my game tremendously.  Now.....what are the increments of the 150ft putter.  (and don't say that I shouldn't be seeing a 150ft putter....I already know that.  lol)

    I never use the 150' putter enough to warrant learning how.  I figure if I'm more than 60 feet away from the flag something went wrong anyway.

    The scale is totally different too.  Sometimes I goof around on #9 and try to hit putts from the back of the green.  Hitting the 150' putter at 1/3 power should only travel 50'.  Instead it goes 85' or 90'.  Wha?

    If you figure it out I'd love to know. :)

     I can't thank you enough for your tutorial. I've only been with WGT a month, and had started to learn the nuances of the course, but your blog cleared a log of fog in an area I really needed help with.

    nivlac, as always your tutoring is most helpful.

    I have been playing on here for a couple of months and never read this.

    This helps even more after just trying to figure it out on my own.

    Thanks again and enjoy playing and chatting with you.


    God Bless,

    I had to laugh. I read this post while waiting for my putt in practice mode to load. I then proceeded to hit my longest ever putt. Knowledge is power so they say! Thanks for the tips.
