I've been looking for a somewhat heavier putter for our greens during times like this where they have to leave them long due to the heat. They get so slow when they do that. Not easy to find all the specs about weight of like my old Ping putter I've been using. So last night I had the idea of adding some lead tape to my backup putter, Nike Method Core blade putter I bought a few years ago. Found my tape and putt 3 pieces on it, when I weighed all 4 pieces on my scale it was about 15-20 grams total. So I figure I added maybe 10-12 grams to the putter. Anyway I added it to the middle sole that was exposed. Not sure how much it changed things but I generally got the ball around the hole, whereas last weekend, also slow, I left more than a few short on Saturday. I didn't make any longer putts with the putter, but was close. Tried to center it as best I could so I wasn't putting more weight on the heel or toe, but I'm sure it's not exact. So we'll have to see how it goes and whether it helps with speed or if I keep missing everything, I might be doing more damage on the direction and alignment.
Don, ever added lead tape to a putter? I know some people worry about the feel and the counterbalance, but I just want to get more "ummf" behind the putts without changing my stroke.
