This was her first hole-in-one in the thousands of rounds she has played over the years. Until July 9, there had not been a hole-in-one in the women's club for several years. Below, from left, are the other members of Debbie's foursome celebrating with her: Linda Bilger, Caren Gleave, Michelle Duchi and Debbie Peterson. Photos submitted Befriends with your putter HOO00D omGO!:F JOHN K. ABENDROTH P.G.A. Are you friends with your putter, or do you have a love-hate relationship with the club you finish every hole of golf with. Having a positive attitude about your golf game is very important, but with the put- ter it is probably most impor- tant. The best putters are even a bit arrogant about their putting, but that is just a high degree of positive atti- tude. I have known players who have used the same putter forever. My son Mike has used the same putter for nearly 20 years. On the other hand rumor has it that Arnold Palmer and Vijay Singh have about 1,000 put- ters each. Recently I went through a mini-slump and gave my first string putter a rest. I tried about three of tny old standbys, but kept the No. 1 putter nearby. Things can change, and I feel it is healthy to try a dif- ferent putter on occasion to change the look and keep you fresh on alignment. Since I came back to the old putter it has been working pretty well. The late Buddy Allin, who played the PGA Tour for a number of years, had a unique approach to putters. For practice rounds he would use a putter that looked horrible to him, but during a tournament round he would go to "old trusty" and putt very well. Allin was known as a very good putter. Have you heard the old clich6, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder"? This can be applied to my ideas here, as giving the putter a rest knowing you will probably bring it back to the starting line-up. Keep your grip clean, be- cause the feel of your putter is so important, Keep the grip clean for a good feel of the club. But if you putt well, avoid changing the grip. When you change a grip, it can cause the club to feel very differ- ent. If you like your putter, keep the grip clean and avoid changing the grip. Just like our relationships, maybe we need a separate vacation or a little space now and then; it can help your putting and your romantic life.
