This is probably the most important part of you game especially since you spend around 75% of your round putting. Average golfers do not understand the importance of putter fitting to lowering their handicap. In this blog we will discuss ways you can go about being fit for the perfect putter for you.
- First things first, this is a matter that your local PGA Professional should be a part of so please get him or her and head to the putting green.
- This is an important process, so devote about 30 to 45 minutes just for the fitting itself- trust me you will really thank yourself for taking the time.
- If your pro does not have a fitting system make sure that he has putters with different lengths, lofts, lies, and hosel styles for you to choose from.Note: You need to see different styles and head designs because each one of these will look different and aim differently to your eye. It is your goal to find the putter that you aim correctly and we will go over what that looks like later in the blog.
- Find a flat spot in the green that is around 6 feet in length and get ready to putt. This is a crucial time in your fitting because each of these putts needs to be treated like the putt of your life. It is very important that each time you putt that you do your routine and read each putt. (This sounds like a meaningless task, but it puts you in the mindset of making putts on the course)
- Every putt should be analyzed for Feel and Speed Control, but most importantly for alignment. Tell your PGA Professional where you are “aiming” and he will determine which putter you “aim” at your target. This is the purpose of your fitting because we want to aim our putter at the target every time.
- Remember: The way this putter fitting works is if you take every putt seriously and do your routine. Take your time and make this fitting count so that the putter you pick matches your eye and your stroke
This putter will be the best putter you have ever played with and you will make lots of putts with it. After your fitting, be certain to make some lag putts to be sure that your speed control is good with the putter you have chosen. If it is fit correctly you will have no problem.
