  1. Randy, Nice blog…good luck this weekend….I lost to Scott Anderson in first round..one over par and I lost on 18..we were even going into 17, i hit the green first 25 feet away then he stuffed it to six inches
    play well..

    Regards,
    Stu

  2. Course record at Tilden is 64…..I shot it the day after you shot 65 also in the Bay Regional. Great resume though…..I am envious.

    • Yes I know, there are many course records under different conditions. I believe I had the course record for a day which still counts as once holding the course record I believe?

      I love that course!!…and you?

  3. Good Luck Randy! When you get a chance give me a call at Moorpark Country Club 805-532-2834

  4. Randy.

    Watched you play a little at Whisper Rock the past two years. I was just on the putting green with Gary McCord and a few others this afternoon talking about your great play, but especially about your putting technique and putter. We had some pictures of you playing and putting. We all tried to side-saddle a long putter.

    Would you elaborate about both your technique and the putter. As to the putter, was it built as a STX side-saddle putter originally for use as you use it? Did you have to alter it at all to fit the side saddle style? And, is the rule for shaft angle into the putter head, which I believe is 8 degrees? Your putter shaft looked like it was perpendicular, but of course I couldn’t tell from a distance. I’m sure it’s legal, but I wonder what the shaft angle is that you are using and feel is optimal for your FANTASTIC putting skills?

    Thanks, Van DeWar.

    • I don’t think Randy read this. My fault, since I help him with the blog. Send me an email to rouillardt@verizon.net with your contact info and I will make sure he gets it. I am sure he wants to spread the word of how he side saddle putts. I played with him for years when I was working at Olympic. We played in many Pro-Am’s together and have seen miles of putts made first hand.

  5. Randolph good site impressive resume, are you gonna give Reinert any love for the reads over the years.

  6. Randolph thanks for the great pics of Spyglass can’t wait to play it with you.
    Rish

  7. Randy, contact me because i want a match. i believe that you are ripe for the taking. send up a flare

  8. Mr. Haag,
    I have had the chance to play with you when I was a junior golfer in the cal am. qualifier at castlewood cc like 6 years ago. I admire the way you putt and I am convinced that you are a trend setter. If I putt poorly within the next decade or so, I will switch to the Haag face on putting style.

  9. Randy… have you ever scored a double eagle?
    Michael

    • Randy,
      The Double Eagle Club is having its first golf tournament and I want to invite you to play. I need your contact information to send you the tournament announcement and registration information. I know you have scored a double eagle. The stats regarding it have been lost. Please send me the information surrounding your double eagle so that I may post it on the Club website. I look forward to your reply.

      All the best,

      Michael Christensen

  12. Randy,
    Congratulations on such a wonderful week and experiencing a Major first hand. Your experiences will carry with you your entire life and and will be there whenever you wonder why you do this.

    Again, there isn’t a golfer in NorCal that wouldn’t change places with you.

    Rest up. I expect to see you Aug 2 at Peninsula CC.

    Good job.

  19. Randy,
    I enjoyed reading your blog. If you ever get to St. Louis, I would love for you to join me for a round at Bellerive. Good luck with future tournaments.

  20. just reading thru your blog randy, work and caddie at turnberry. would like to say welcome and have a great week. my name is cruickie.

  21. Hi Randy..I just learned from Ray that you are teeing it up w Mike this week. Wish I was there to root for you guys. What a great twosome. Best of luck this week pal..see u Lakeside

  22. Hi Randy, long time no talk, my son Mike says everything going well with you and I see you have played some great golf over the past several years. Keep stretching and you will keep your game for a long time. I ran across your address looking up the side saddle putter. It looks like a good way for me to go. Take care, Tommy Jacobs

    • So great to hear from you Tommy, and yes its been a long time! With the new rules in anchored putting, I think side saddle putting will become more popular over time. I use an old STK side saddle putter, which works quite well. Seems like just yesterday when I was at SDSU seeing you at La Costa, what great days those were!!

      Happy Holidays and all the best to you Tommy!!

      Randy Haag

  23. Hello Randy,
    Congratulations on your truly admirable golfing accomplishments. As for side saddle putting, I have not been able to find this style putter at our local retail outlet stores. I would appreciate any information you can provide me on where to buy a good quality side saddle putter, or source for components?

    Thank you,
    Richard

  30. Randy, would you speak to the different types of putters that you have used over the years and the one you are currently using. Thank you

    • Hi
      I used to use a Jack Koski “So Easy” home made putter, very nice. Until I discovered the STX side saddle putter they made a long time ago. Can still get them occasionally on Ebay. I use the soft black face on it, great for fast greens!!!

  31. Hi,
    I’m interested in getting a review of my http://www.punchbowlgolf.com on Randy Haag’s Golf Blog. I am willing to pay.I was wondering if that is something that you would be interested in?
