TWEET OF THE WEEK
@ArronOberholser: "I know belly and long putters will never be banned, but if they were there would be some dudes looking for work." -- PGA Tour player Arron Oerholser
Andrew Bierl, PGA
@anbierl0910 3 weeks in a row a player with a Long Putter wins #nowtrending
@PingTour Start melting the gold boys! This G5i Craz-E Belly will be another great addition to PING Gold Putter Vault... @WyndhamChamp @PGATOUR
Tim Beckwith, PGA
@TimBeckwithPGA Victories with belly & long putters seem to be adding up. They make that part of game easier, yet still one of the hardest things in sports.
@ArronOberholser No offense, but for me, the only thing a belly putter is good for is beating rabid animals.
@ArronOberholser I know belly and long putters will never be banned, but if they were there would be some dudes looking for work.

Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney Yes RT @Chornstarr: switched to a superlight steel shaft, started hooking the ball, could it be swinging way to fast cuz the shafts
@HankDHaney I don't think so RT @DevinGoldberg: I know it will be painful in the beginning, but will switching to blades eventually make someone better?

Jesse Struebing, PGA
@Jstruebs Really bothers me that club companies push awful performing SW's that are the same design as other irons. wedges are tools not 5 irons!
@Jstruebs Wedges like that are not versatile. Can't be open up, leading edge is to high of ground. Bounce is aweful, can't get height on a tight lie.
@Chris_Ward_Golf Just got this bad boys in! Thank you @Titleist! lockerz.com/s/130274285
Mickey Matran, PGA
@MickeyMgolf A nice training aid I stole from Rob Noel! Thanks Rob! yfrog.com/h034004195j

John Graham, PGA
@JohnGrahamGolf Why all the whining about belly and long putters? Where's the mechanical advantage? Because it is anchored in? Still takes great skill.
