Silver Medal

Yes! Ann

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“I preferred the Yes! Christina as I felt this was a bit harder to hit but it’s doubtless a high-quality club. The feel and roll are excellent” Dan

“The shape is beautiful to look at and the grooves really work – the ball rolls quickly” Josh

“The shape is as good as you will find and the roll it produced was very impressive” John

Bronze Medal

Scotty Cameron Studio Select Laguna 2

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“I love the old-school shape. The toe sits high so it feels difficult to pull this one” Joe

“Very tasty – the shape is eye-catching and simple yet classy. The noise changes when you miss the middle so best left to good putters” Dan

“I think this putter is really easy to align and the balance is lovely” John
