How to Buy The Suitable Putter Club?
The length and fitting of a putter club
If somebody told me that there are a wide range of changes on the putter these days, I could presumably answer by saying “that is all”. This is simply because I have used dozens of putter over the past 20 years.
I am pretty sure that I have bought or tried at least 300 of them and draw a conclusion that: the best way to immediately improve a putting shot is to purchase a new one. In fact, it never fails to improve my putting. In addition, if you want to find out a putter club that you would for a long time, then probably you could not purchase it.
Which factors to consider when buying a new putter club?
Let me take a couple of minutes to show you the 5 most essential factors that you need to take into consideration when looking for a putter club. In fact, you would skip this section and move to the next part if you are still satisfied with the one that you are using.
Let's begin with the size of a putter club. In general, most models are made with the range from 33 to 36 ins in length. And the most essential factor to bear in your mind when going for a new club is that the bottom part of its clubhead need to be based on the ground of the golf course.
If the length is too long, then it would increase the distance between the golf ball and you. As a result, the putter’s toe would also be off from the ground.
On the other hand, if the length is too short, then it would decrease the distance between the golf ball and you. As a result, the putter’s heel would also be off from the ground.
What you need to bear in your mind is do not attempt to change the posture and position to fit the club that you use. Instead, you need to choose a putter club which fits your posture and position. You would not imagine how a slightest change could throw the stroke off.
Putters are made with different ranges of weight. In general, the manufacturer does not show the weight on a putter club and there is not any standards for weight in the putter industry.
Several types are lighter than others. Several models are made with heavy head. And several kinds have evenly distributed the weight throughout the whole club.
There are 2 important factors when it comes to the weight. Firstly, if you are playing on a fast green, it would be better to use a lighter club than a heavy putter. The next thing is that nobody could tell you which type is suitable for you because the weight of a putter club is completely dependable on the personal need.
In fact, most of golf players do not pay enough attention to the lie of a putter. This is simply because they buy and adjust them rather than choosing a model that matches the setup. Always remember that if you select a too long putter, the distance between you and the ball would increase and your toe would be on the air. As a result, the putter’s heel would be stuck on the surface and the toe would pass across the heel at impact. Therefore, the lie of a putter is really essential and you need to be sure that you go for a suitable putter for you.
The grip is not really the most essential element of a putter. For the past 20 years, I have played the exact similar kind of grip and I need to place the grip for most of the putter clubs as I place the grip at sideways. Nevertheless, for most golf players, there are 2 or 3 kinds of common grips in the market.
This is often considered as the single most essential element of the putter club. It would be remembered as the three S words: style, size and shape.
What we are going to tell you would be the only thing that decides a suitable putter club for you. Do not choose a putter if it does not sweep off the feet.
