I just gave CB80 the benefit of the doubt that he was engaging in one of his humorous ramblings about suggesting a light putter for slow greens 

 

you gave the benefit of doubt to a lead balloon?  

 

Nice.

Nice. 

it's just the type of guy I am 

and to clarify, I didn't think what he had written was funny, just that I thought he might have been trying to be funny, because that is the type of guy I am, defining and analysing humour is a favourite pastime of mine

I'm not qualified to define and analyse anything. So glad that there are knowledge workers like you out there looking after the little people.

I think the usual term for that is "dumb".

Yet he can speak. This is quite a conundrum.

Perhaps I should have referred to it as a 'common' term, just in case someone took the literal meaning of 'dumb'.

Not so Bump.

I was quoting from an article by David Edel, * (The best putting instruction book ever).

 

who suggested heavier putter for fast greens, and lighter for slow.

 

his reasoning is that a heavy putter transfers more energy to the ball than a lighter one.(Force =mass x acceleration).

 

But according to Edel your hands feel heavier weight and dont move the putter as fast

 

if have light weight your hands, judge weight and hit ball harder to get the perceived distance.

 

(he did preface this theory by saying each player is different and should get a putter which gives them the correct weighting for best distance control.

You really do live up to your motto.
