I just wanted to let the Bettinardi people know about a fitting I had at Studio B in the 2nd Swing Minnetonka MN store. I did my fitting with Russ about a month ago. He was great. He spent quite a bit of time with me and I learned a lot.
I traded in some of my old putters that were collecting dust and purchased my first Bettinardi. It’s a BB1 and for a production putter I have to say WOW! It looks great and I’m not going to bash any other popular putter maker but I have owned more expensive putters that have not felt this good.
It was eye opening to see super slow motion before the loft adjustment of the ball skidding quite a bit when I hit a putt. Then to see the video after the loft adjustment of the ball starting to roll a lot quicker after impact was cool.
The laser alignment was interesting. I could swear by my eye that I had my putter lined up straight at the hole but the laser showed I was 2 degrees open. We did this multiple times and every time I was 2 degrees open. It’s funny how your eyes can fool you. Just working on closing the face a little bit keeping my putter square at impact has helped my putting greatly.
I will recommend giving this a try to anyone interested in the mechanics of putting. I feel more confident knowing that I have a quality putter and it is fit for me.
Thanks for the great service. I’m working on my golf partners to go get fitted.
