As you may know there are many versions and makes of putters across the board now. Traditional putter of which there are differing settings:
- Face balanced/Toe heavy
- Differing lie angles and length
- Centre/heel shafted
- Traditional length/Belly putter/Long putter
- In black, white or different colours now
- Alignment aids or traditional line or even the MLA alignment settings
So now you are really confused, there are so many. So this is where it needs to suit your eye and then let me help from there. We can check the correct length, the correct lie angle, the correct type (toe heavy/face balanced/mallet or blade).
I will use my visual expertise but with the use of the SAM putt lab we can make the difference. Yes, even a computer can help now, but the final decision has to be yours and you need to be really happy with what you are using.
Some people say they putt well with a putter and then they seem to fade a little. Change the putter and improve. This shows that the different types of putter can help but you need to be consistent. A mallet putter will help to get the putter back more on a square line. A bladed putter is more of an arch and the heavier the weight in the toe the more the arch.
So, when purchasing a putter it must be the best fitted club in the bag or you may be losing strokes and not benefiting from the right equipment. Please, please, please listen to this free advice. GET THE RIGHT PUTTER FOR YOU AND YOUR MECHANICS! If not, you could be wasting your money?
Below is a selection of putters but we will be adding to them on a regular basis.
