Are their any players out there that only turbo putt? I know there are a few pros who do, and one local guy up here. Just wondering if any of you turbo for 'standard' putts and if so, why did you switch.
2nd related question: Would you consider this cheating and/or shady; I have a challenger putter that hit a tree pretty hard and took a BIG chunk out. It happened in the middle of a round, no intent obviously. As it turns out, this huge chunk is a great spot for placing my index finger on turbo putts, much like one indent on that goofy 'Turbo Putt" disc. It lets me get a ton of spin and distance on the shot. Shady? Illegal? Lame?

I don't think anyone gets an unfair advantage by only turbo putting, so nothing against that. A disc missing a big chunk though, I'm pretty sure that's just plain illegal if you go by the rulebook.

It seems to me, from personal experience and from watching others, that turbo putts are more apt to be maimed by the wind. That being said, maybe I and those I've watched do it have achieved poor power or spin on the putt anyway and THAT is why it gets knocked around in the air. The last guy I watched use mostly turbo putts in a local tourney received severe wind abuse once the disc left the hand.

The only advantage a turbo putter has is in Ring of Fire while score cards are being counted.
