When choosing a putter, it is first important to get the right shaft length. Most putters come as standard in 34-inches but 33 and 35 shafts are available. Generally speaking, taller golfers will require a longer putter but much of it comes down to the golfer’s stance and posture.
How do I know what putter is right for me?
You want to balance the shaft of the putter horizontally across your open palm, allowing the head to rotate to its natural resting position. If the face points directly to the sky, you have a face-balanced putter. If the toe of the putter hangs down or to the side, you have a toe-hang putter.
Is a blade or mallet putter better?
Mallet-style putter designs provide higher MOI (moment of inertia), thus reducing the negative effects of off-center hits. Some choose to use blade putters because that’s what they’re comfortable with, and for others the blade-style is simply a better match for their stroke.
Which putter is best for my stroke?
To summarize, if you like to use a straight back, straight through method, a face-balanced putter would be a great choice. If your stroke works on a slight arc, a putter with moderate toe hang would be ideal, while those with more pronounced arcs in their stroke would benefit from even more toe hang.
Do expensive putters make a difference?
Many expensive putters actually do provide advanced performance (better stability and forgiveness on off center hits) characteristics that more basic, less hi-tech designs don’t. However, there are other high-end models that are simply much fancier versions of basic designs.
Should I get fitted for a putter?
A putter fitting session can reap great rewards for golfers. Most importantly, it can fit you for the correct putter. It is important to get a proper putter fitting just like you would any other club. Due to the importance of your short game, don’t neglect getting the right fit for your most used club.
Who should use a 35 inch putter?
In general, golfers with a height of 5’9″ – 5’11” should use a 34″ length putter, 5’8″ and below should use a 33″, and those above 6′ should use a 35″ putter. A golfer’s posture also contributes to putter length. Upright posture suggests a longer putter, while hunched over suggests a shorter one.
Should I use a 33 inch putter?
