Series: A Quick Nine

As the old saying goes, "you drive for show and you putt for dough."

Loads of new equipment will be introduced to the public at next week's PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. While all the shiny, new stuff is wonderful to look at, we all know the most important stick in your bag is the short one (or, the long one for those of you with bad backs).

A Quick Nine

This week's featured Facebook question: What type of putter do you use?

With that, for this week's, 'A Quick Nine,' feature, we asked our Facebook fans: What type of putter do you use?

Usually, we post our featured question a couple of times to yield a variety of responses. This time, I guess you could say we, "one-putted." Yep. Asked the question just once and, thanks to you, received nearly 300 responses.

So, let's see what particular putter is saving our readers the most strokes:

1. Taylor-Made. This particular company has made a big push in recent years with the flat-stick.
