We hear it all the time.
The player is on the green, scratching their head as to why they make more putts with our putters. They ask if it’s legal. We tell them… of course, the USGA ruled on them long ago.
Then, they say it… “OK, if this really works, then tell me, why didn’t (fill in brand X) do this, tell me that?!”
It’s a great question.
We simply reply… “Great question. But ask them. And when you do, ask them two questions… first, if they knew all along about the science that makes this work so well, why in the world didn’t they give it to you. And second, if they didn’t know about the science, what in the world are they doing in the putter business to begin with.”
No good answers will ever come from those two questions.
