Just curious. The putter seems to be hugely popular (on Golfwrx) and universally acclaimed. So why did you get rid and what replaced it?

Never understood this analogy. Yes, the player is the Indian. The club, however, is the bow, not the arrow. The ball is the arrow. I did very well on my SATs.

I initially purchased a used ER8 as sort of an experiment to see how I liked the feel and whatnot of their putters and technology. I quickly noticed however that the sight line did not appear to be i

Haven't moved on from but did give the ER2 a long look picking out a putter earlier this year. REALLY liked the look, feel and how it rolled the ball but had one big issue to me.
The leading edge on the bottom of the putter has 1/8" ish rail that stickes out/above the rest of the bottom. For me, when I set the putter down it wobbled significantly enough to make it difficult for me to get the putter face square to my line consistently. Found this unusual as I don't see this on any other putter line, tried to understand the purpose and like this putter but couldn't.
For me at least- its the indian not the arrow. Haven't gotten rid of my ER2- but he's been in time out for a few weeks now. My stroke was all over the place and I put a center-shafted Ping Scottsdale TR Piper C back in play to help calm the stroke a bit which is helping.
I bought an er7. The tech seems legit. In the end for me I just couldn't seem to consistently repeat my putting stroke with it and therefore was extremely inconsistent with it. It was 34" and not my normal 33.5", so I cut it down and put a ping man grip on the club, and that made the putter worse for me. I think the weight is just too much for me.
I have went back to anser style putters. Currently rotating between a Cameron Mil Spec and a Piretti Potenza. I will keep looking for a quality mallet to replace the anser style, but so far the ketsch, tyne, and er7 have failed.

Loved the concept, but I needed more toe hang than offered in current models.
I tried to love the ER7 but just couldn't ever feel comfortable with it. The face grooves took all the energy from the impact and I felt like I was always hitting the ball way too hard to get it to the hole. This was especially true on slow greens.
This eventually got into my head because I never knew how hard to hit the ball.
The lack of feel at impact also made me feel like I never hit the putt solidly. Even good hits felt lacking in the feel department. Rife putters always felt great but I think the grooves are too thin in the middle of the Evnroll.

I had an ER2 for a couple of weeks, and putted fairly well with it. Hated the feel though - felt dead to me. Much happier with my Brandon H.

It seems that for the low single digit handicappers and/or solid putters who make consistent middle face contact, they either don't need the benefit of the grooves, or find the feel/distance control off-putting due to the grooves. (no pun intended) Evnroll still has no presence on any of the tours...even the Champions Tour, with players who are more receptive to new technologies, and with less/no endorsement $ incentive to play particular products. Ping seems to have toned down the depth/size of the grooves with their TR faces as well.
Felt like a brick to me. Too heavy and the face was too harsh. Feedback sucked so my distance control suffered.
What replaced it? I'm a HO and have about 80-90 putters. I'd roll ANY of them over the ER2.
I had one on loan for a while. There's a lot I liked about it, but in the end there were two main factors stopping me from continuing with it.
1. To heavy
2. No option to get rid of the sight line
I had an Er2 but just not enough toe hang for my strong arc stoke. I liked it otherwise.
doesn't matter what you have if you cant putt :download:
Really wanted to like the ER2 but I wasn’t a fan of how heavy the head felt. I know they get great reviews but wasn’t for me.

This is a true addiction kids. I think there's a hotline somewhere for this level of ho-ing.
As for me.. I owned 4 Evnroll's... and I just don't get along with flange line. Need top line alignment and I find the new ER 9 to be gross looking, and the ER6 to just be too big and gaudy.

I have been using the ER 5 @ 34" for more that a year now, and it is definitely a pure rolling putter that is correctly weighted.
I make a lot of putts on fast greens.

You have the remember to pair the head weight to the grip. Evnroll uses a very heavy stock grip, and bump the head weight to balance (for a counterbalanced feel). To ge in the "tour preferred" range of d4-d6, with a normal weight grip, you should target:
This is my opinion...

I honestly don't like feel of my ER2 but damn, I can putt straight with this.
Love the roll but I hate the 2 dots. Its something I don't want to look at while lining up a putt.
All you people that don't like Evnroll can just go to hell.....
Okay, that might have been a bit harsh. I'm sorry.
For me, I played a Scotty Cira 62 model 2 for many years. It's like the opposite of a high MOI putter. Now I'm in a ER5 - so its a different world and has taken some time. The feel is indeed much different. That being said, a good stroke with the ER5 produces a really tight roll for me and I feel that I can line up this putter much easier.
It's staying in the bag.

I went kind of a different path. Bought an ER2, wanted to like it, but couldn’t get along with it too well and sold it. Was goofing around at a golf store one day, and was able to try the gravity grip on the putter. I know this grip is kind of a love/hate relationship with golfers, but it clicked with me. And the weight made the putter feel better to me as well. So now, I am gaming a 34 inch ER2 with the gravity grip and am putting better than I have in a while.

PGA Tour to offer members equity ownership in new corporation
- Senior college football writer
- Author of seven books on college football

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Georgia -- Once it reaches an agreement with Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund or U.S.-based investment partners -- or perhaps even both -- the PGA Tour will offer its members direct ownership in the newly formed corporation, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a memo sent to players Tuesday.
The memo comes on the heels of Monday's marathon meeting at PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, in which policy board members, including Tiger Woods , were apprised of potential investment partners.
"Tour management has designed a program that would align the interests of our members with the commercial business of the Tour via direct equity ownership in PGA Tour Enterprises," Monahan's memo said.
"At the point we secure outside investment, this would be a unique offering in professional sports, as no other league grants its players/members direct equity ownership in the league's business. We recognize -- as do all of the prospective minority investors who are in dialogue with us -- that the PGA Tour will be stronger with our players more closely aligned with the commercial success of the business."
The PGA Tour reached a surprising framework agreement with the Public Investment Fund (PIF) and the DP World Tour on June 6. The framework agreement is set to expire Dec. 31, although sources have told ESPN that the deadline can be extended.
For the past few months, the PGA Tour has been weighing bids from several U.S. based entities, including Fenway Sports Group, which owns the Boston Red Sox, Pittsburgh Penguins and Liverpool FC. Fenway Sports Group has emerged as one of the strongest potential partners, sources told ESPN. Last week, Fenway Sports Group chairman Tom Werner confirmed to CNBC that the company had conversations with the PGA Tour but declined to provide further details.
Golfweek, citing sources, reported Nov. 4 that the PGA Tour had trimmed its list of potential financial partners to five companies: Fenway Sports Group, Liberty Strategic Capital, Acorn Growth Company, Eldridge Industries and Friends of Golf, a consortium of influential Wall Street investors and other individuals who have a fondness for the game.
Liberty Strategic Capital is operated by Steve Mnuchin, who was the secretary of the treasury under former U.S. President Donald Trump. Eldridge Capital is led by Todd Boehly, owner of Chelsea FCA and a minority owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Lakers and Sparks.
"Many of those prospects moved forward to a diligence review -- with Tour management and Allen & Company working together with the potential minority investors' representatives -- and we then received significant, formal proposals that demonstrate the power of the PGA Tour brand, its players and our commercial opportunity," Monahan wrote in the memo.
Monahan wrote that investment bank Allen & Company, the Raine Group and PGA Tour management "thoroughly reviewed all bids and agreed, in concert, to recommend select parties advance to the next round based on various criteria, including financial value proposition, minority investment rights and strategic value-add."
"This is an important part of the process, allowing us to focus on the most attractive bids and the long-term value creation for you and the Tour," Monahan wrote in the memo. "In the Policy Board meeting, we reviewed these remaining bids with the Independent Directors and Player Directors -- with input from Allen & Co. and The Raine Group -- and agreed to continue the negotiation process in order to select the final minority investor(s) in a timely manner."
Endeavor Group, parent company of WWE and UFC, had submitted a bid to the PGA Tour but was turned down, COO Mark Shapiro confirmed Oct. 23.
"It's been quite quiet lately; I haven't heard anything," Open Championship winner Brian Harman said. "I trust our leadership. I think Tiger coming on board has been really positive for all the players, we've all got his back. I think our goal is just transparency from here on out and just to make the best decision for the entire membership.
"I haven't read the memo, so I don't know what happened yesterday, but I'm sure I'll hear some more today. I feel good about the direction things are going. I'm not on the policy board, I'm not in any of the meetings, but I do trust guys that are there, and I think they'll make the right decisions."
Sources have told ESPN that talks with PIF governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan and other PIF officials have slowed down tremendously since the initial framework agreement was reached more than five months ago. Sources said the proposed deal is far from getting done for a variety of reasons, including PIF officials wanting more control of the new for-profit enterprise. Sources said the Saudis are also digging in their heels on incorporating team golf into the sport's future global ecosystem.
There are also concerns that a Saudi-only deal might not be approved by the U.S. Department of Justice's antitrust division, which has already opened an investigation of the PGA Tour's business practices and expanded it once the framework agreement was reached with the Saudis. Adding U.S.-based investors to the deal -- it could potentially be more than one, according to Monahan's memo -- might grease the wheels for government approval.
"I don't think it will ever happen," a source previously briefed regularly on the state of negotiations with the Saudis previously told ESPN. "I don't think the Department of Justice would ever approve a merger with the PGA Tour. And I don't think the Saudis are pleased with how little influence they'd get in a merged entity. For those reasons, I don't think the merger is ever going to happen."
The tour also announced that Joseph W. "Joe" Gorder, executive chairman of Valero Energy Corporation, has been unanimously approved to replace former independent director Randall Stephenson on the policy board.
Stephenson, a former AT&T chairman, resigned in protest over the PIF deal.
"I am honored to be joining the PGA Tour Policy Board," Gorder said in a statement. "I've truly enjoyed my engagement with the PGA TOUR through the Valero Texas Open, and I am excited to step into this role for the PGA TOUR and its members, as we continue to cultivate growth and success for this proud organization, its passionate fanbase and its engaged communities."

Evnroll EV5 2023 Putter
Our expert review:
Reasons to buy, reasons to avoid.
This year has seen an expansion of the V-Series, within which the flagship model is the EV5 due to its ‘3x3 versatility’. This refers to the fact that it is available in various color combinations via three rear interchangeable chassis designs. There is even a choice of six hosel options too, so every visual preference and stroke type is truly catered for. The impressive customization on offer sees this putter into our 2023 Editor's Choice awards.
The EV5 is undoubtedly one of the most forgiving putters around. Despite being a compact mallet, the head feels more stable than previous Evnroll putters of a similar size and helped by the special grooves on the face, we was able to knock putts often to within gimmie range from long distance and scare the hole frequently from 20 feet and in.
For us, it was the EV5.2 model that performed the best, possibly due to that extra alignment help from the added sightlines, and is the one that we think will have the most universal appeal as one of the best golf putters . It's also the only shape available with the Midlock putting grip which makes implementing the Armlock putting method feel easier.

Evnroll ER2V Putter
The ER2V, which is one of our top favorite models on the market right now. From a visual perspective, this putter really is excellent, with the wide blade shape setting up perfectly and sitting flush to the ground. It's a thick blade design that gives it a very forgiving look and we think this might be a great option for any player looking to transition from one of the best mallet putters to a blade putter.
Overall, the finish oozes sophistication and the long black sightline certainly helps. We also like the two dots at address as well, which helps with setting the correct lie angle.One thing to note is that golf balls, when struck off the face, come off a little slower on the ER2V than most other putters we’ve tested.
This means that if the greens are slightly slower, or you prefer using a putter from off the green, then you may find yourself coming up short initially. However, this is only a minor detail that can be fixed quickly, especially as the consistency of the roll, along with how well this putter sets up, is the standout factor.

Evnroll ER11vx Putter
The extended version of the ER11v putter, the Evnroll ER11vx comprises of a large mallet head with additional 303 stainless steel weights in the rear corners of each side. This therefore increases the MOI further, making it more stable and forgiving on off-center hits. On the green, we found this putter to be a forgiving and very large head for a mallet putter. The thick white alignment line goes the full depth of the crown and draws your eyes to ensure that the putter is pointing where you want the ball to go.
Like all Evnroll putters, there is a choice of hosel options, with the latest addition of a short slant hosel creating 15° of toe hang which, combined with the head that is made from black anodized 6061 aluminum, has one of the highest MOIs on the market. Such was the performance, it secured a spot in our Editor's Choice Awards for 2022 .

Evnroll Zero Putter
The Evnroll Zero Putter has a lot going on, both visually and technically. The putter itself has a very quirky design that moves its weight out to its extremities to help improve its stability and reduce any head twist on any off-center hits. The club features four stainless steel weights in each corner of its sole, and also has a hole in its center, which increases the MOI of the club.
The club also features Evnroll's Sweet Face Design that has variable grooves that create a much more consistent roll, ensuring there is no loss of energy on off-center hits. On impact, the putter feels great and produces a smooth roll on the ball. What's interesting is that the hosel of the putter is placed towards the rear of the club.
This is what Evnroll call their FaceForward balancing, which aims to keep the putting path more consistent. This is a great club for those who need assistance with putter alignment, as it features an excellent alignment tool on its back, which can help improve your focus on the golf ball and hit more accurate putting strokes. Because of this, it features in our most forgiving putters and best putters for high handicappers guide.

Evnroll ER5v Midlock Putter
The brand describes this putter as 'Armlock made easy,' and we have to agree with that statement. This putter features a patented grip design that has the deepest pistol dimension allowed by the USGA. What this does is position the grip sideways, pushing the shaft angle away from the mid-forearm. That, therefore, reduces the typical nine degrees of loft to just four, which is similar to a simple forward press. By doing this, it should eliminate all wrist movement, but how did it test for us?
Well, we thoroughly enjoyed putting this putter and technology through its paces and it did seem to work for us. Certainly we believe it will benefit those golfers who have struggled with the yips before. The ER5v Midlock has a winged mallet design with a hatched-out middle section that is designed to spread the weight of the club head out to its extremities to improve its MOI. As a result of this, we found this putter to be very forgiving for those seeking more consistency, placing it firmly among the best armlock putters money can buy.

Evnroll ER8v Putter
A model that came out in 2021, the ER8v is still a top performer in the putter marketplace, let alone the Evnroll range. In testing we found the look of the square-back design really appealing. As well as the shape, the classy silver satin finish and black alignment line gave confidence over every putt.
The feel of the putter was also a plus point in testing. The feel off the CNC-milled face is on the soft side, which allowed us to be a little more aggressive and made it easy to judge the pace on longer putts. Additionally, the grooves in the centre meant it was easy to get the ball rolling early and minimize the effects of bumpy surfaces. At the top end, the 90-gram Evnroll TourTac white grip was excellent. Thick enough to take the hands out of the stroke somewhat, but not too thick that it was uncomfortable
And to top it off, golfers keen to go down this route and who know their specs, can take advantage of the wide variety of custom options available when it comes to the shaft, lie angle and grip. Admittedly on the expensive side, there’s no denying the quality on offer.

Evnroll ER10 Outback Putter
We end with the ER10 Outback, which is another model that is a few years old but still warrants inclusion on this list. Designed to offer forgiveness, it certainly has a large footprint at address. The black front section is made from aluminum and the silver rear wing is made from stainless steel, which is very clever because your eyes focus on the black parts at address so it looks like a fang design and appears smaller than it actually is.
This design also shifts a lot of the weight back away from the face to improve the stability and forgiveness. Off the face, thanks to Sweet Face Technology, there’s no denying that this is a very consistent and accurate putter that is really soft at impact. We found that it was a lovely feeling and it works brilliantly on fast greens. Overall, the Outback is a cleverly designed putter that makes it very easy to square the face at address and impact and, what's more, it rolls the ball with impressive consistency and accuracy.

How we test putters
When it comes to product testing, our reviews and buyers' guides are built upon a rigorous testing procedure as well as the knowledge and experience of the test team. We test putters outdoors on real greens with premium golf balls to get a thorough understanding of design features, feel, sound and looks. Ultimately, we aim to be as insightful and honest as possible in our reviews so it is important to acknowledge that no manufacturer can buy a good review. This is because our team tells it how it is.

What to consider when buying a putter
When it comes to arguably the most important golf club in the bag, you need to think about what you want and what you like to use when it comes to the putter. A confidence-inspiring design that suits your eye and suits your stroke can save countless shots on the greens and a good flatstick is often a quick way of bringing the handicap down. So then what are the things you need to mull over before purchasing?
1. Head Design
As you have seen above, Evnroll putters come in a traditional blade , mid-mallet or a mallet design . All three styles have positives and negatives to them for every player. As the Zero and ER11vx designs show, mallet putters tend to be much larger than blades and they usually come in various shapes and sizes. This allows designers to redistribute weight around the head for stabilization and balance.
Mallets also tend to have larger sweet spots which helps those inconsistent strikers, and the size of the head usually means there are more alignment tools and aids on the head to help this facet of putting. A blade putter is a lot simpler in terms of design and will suit the traditionalists among you a lot more than some of the mallet putters pictured above. Blade putters also tend to suit players with an arc in their putting stroke because of the toe-weighted nature of the club-head.
Here, we're talking not just about the feel and sound the ball makes coming off the face, but how the putter feels in your hands. Given the technology used in Evnroll putters, we would definitely recommend getting the putters in your hands and hitting some putts with them before purchasing.
A quieter sound contributes to a softer feel, whereas a louder sound usually translates into a firmer feel. A firmer feel is often the product of shallow grooves or no grooves at all on the face, where sound can't be dissipated as effectively. They work better with softer feeling golf balls , where as soft-feeling putters work best with firmer golf balls.
You should get a putter that you like the look of as the aesthetics can play a role in inspiring or diminishing confidence on the greens. Blades won't offer as much alignment assistance, but are still popular because of how they feel and the levels of forgiveness are increasing every year.
Mallet putters have more real estate, and can therefore provide more help to set the face squarely. Mid mallets are somewhere in the middle, offering a decent level of assistance without looking too cumbersome. As the models above have shown, Evnroll make models with lots of different shapes and sizes so get your hands on them to see how they look behind the ball and even in the bag.
You can get putters with adjustable weights in the sole that will alter the feel of the putter. For example, if your stroke is quite smooth and slow, a heavier putter will encourage that more. Jerky putters may prefer a lighter putter, although opting for more weight may reduce it, depending on what your goals are. The put t er grip plays a huge roll in the confidence you feel with a putter. Get one that feels right and sits in your hands comfortably while allowing you to return the putter back to the ball squarely and consistently.

PGA Tour players to land ownership stake in historic PIF deal not seen in professional sports
Posted: November 14, 2023 | Last updated: November 14, 2023
The PGA Tour will offer its members equity stakes in PGA Tour Enterprises, an unprecedented move not seen anywhere else in American sports.
PGA Tour Enterprises is the newly founded for-profit entity listed within the tour’s framework agreement with the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) .
Of course, this only happens should the tour’s deal with the PIF go through.
But it could also ensue should the PGA Tour strike an accord with an American-based investor, such as Fenway Sports Group .
“As discussed at the Travelers Championship Player Meeting in June, Tour management has designed a program that would align the interests of our members with the commercial business of the Tour via direct equity ownership in PGA Tour Enterprises,” a memo from PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan reads.
Tuesday’s notice comes one day after the PGA Tour Policy Board —which now includes Tiger Woods —held a meeting in Ponta Vedra Beach, Florida.
“We recognize—as do all of the prospective minority investors who are in dialogue with us—that the PGA Tour will be stronger with our players more closely aligned with the commercial success of the business,” the memo continues.
PGA Tour Enterprises—dubbed ‘NewCo’ within the initial framework agreement announced on Jun. 6—will combine the commercial activities of the PGA Tour, DP World Tour, and the PIF. PGA Tour Enterprises will operate differently than the PGA Tour, which is a not-for-profit. Thus, players can receive equity stakes in this new for-profit entity.
Monahan will serve as CEO of PGA Tour Enterprises, while PIF Governor Yasir al-Rumayyan will act as Chairman.
The PGA Tour will control the majority interest of this entity, while the PIF has the right of first refusal to other investors. PIF will also make a substantial investment into PGA Tour Enterprises, per the framework agreement.
But again, all of this happens if the agreement goes through.
“I trust our leadership. I think Tiger [Woods] coming on board has been really positive for all the players; we’ve all got his back,” Brian Harman said at the RSM Classic on Tuesday.
“I think our goal is just transparency from here on out and just to make the best decision for the entire membership. I haven’t read the memo, so I don’t know what happened yesterday, but I’m sure I’ll hear some more today. I feel good about the direction things are going, and I’m not smart enough to—I’m not on the policy board or in any of the meetings, but I do trust the guys there, and I think they’ll make the right decisions.”
Multiple reports in recent weeks have indicated that talks between the tour and the PIF have slowed down, potentially jeopardizing the agreement.
But nobody knows what the future holds in professional golf.
At the very least, it seems more trust in tour leadership exists. Yet again, that could change quickly, too.
