People are only going to want to throw a putter where it works for them. Thrown properly we see guys like Double G throw them out to 400-500 feet. With enough practice an experienced player with good form will be able to get them out to 250 or so. It shouldn't really be that heated of a topic because there is no one perfect answer that works for everyone. We are all going to answer the question of how well and how far we can effectively use a putter differently based on our form and experience. Just throw what works.

It is really interesting to hear Paul share his thoughts on this. I appreciate that and it helps give some perspective/ballpark ideas on how the pros see it for sure.

Yes if I wanted to throw a putter down a hill it can travel up to 500+ but what I like it for is up to 300 with control after that you can get shaky and wobble it off into the woods

True. There is definitely a difference between throwing for distance and throwing in a tournament. How much distance do you think the hill at USDGC adds? I know I have seen him throw an aviar 400 on flat, even slightly uphill ground.

Paul, when you drive with a putter, which mold do you usually use for that? Big bead or PnA?

#3 I believe I only have 1 left... And yes they all seem to hand hitting the ground.
I think I figured out why, its from me learning to speak thai, the word for "to know" can be used in place of ok in response to something... as my thai gets better my english gets worse I guess lol


I've never regretted eating coldstone, wow. so sad I think you just need to try peanut butter perfection with a brownie added in, nothing but bliss afterwards I promise


1 left? ;( ;(
