How do I see a putters distance scales before I buy it? I'm currently using an odyssey putter from a few years ago with a 15, 30, 60, 150 , 300 for distance and I'm L35 just turned pro. I'd like to have a putter with a 10, 20 , 50 etc. scale. I'm not unhappy with my putter, I'd just rather have the 10, 20 scale.
I would wait it out until your level is higher- get a better putter in the scale you want.
I'm using Ben Hogan irons (spin 3) and they don't stick as much as I'd like them to. I think its a long while before I can get better spinning irons so should I bite the bullet cost wise and pay the price for premium balls with a high spin number?
You are correct that your level semi-handicaps you with irons and balls- I think your right in how your approaching it. same as putter- I would wait till lvl 50s and start looking.
The last club fix I'd like to change is my wedges distance. I have Cleveland wedges 64, 54, 52, for distances of 60, 85, 100. I'd like to have 60, 80, 100 for symmetry and the easier the math, the happier I am. Replacing the 85 with an 80 means I'd have a club with a different meter speed and other stats so should I make do with what I have until I'm a much higher level?
Personally I would wait on that too.
I would also encourage you to seek out an active country club as well!
