Choosing the best putter

Choosing the best putter is a very personal decision. There is an old golf saying that goes “marry your driver, date your putter”, and that advice is well-founded.

Most golfers choose a new putter every year, while others have a tried-and-true putter.

Choosing the right putter for you is critical since the putter is the most important club in your bag.

More strokes are lost on the green than anywhere else, and the choice of putter can make the difference between playing bogie golf and a getting the high handicap award!

The putter is a very personal choice. The putter shaft can be short or very long, the face can be heavy or light, and there are an amazing array of putter choices.
