Toe hang putters

Choosing between face balanced and toe hang putters is a personal decision. Depending on your putting stroke, a face-balanced putter can help you get a higher ball flight. A toe hang putter, on the other hand, is better suited for golfers with a moderate to strong arc. The toe hang putter is harder to use with a straight back and through the stroke.

Face-balanced putters

If you’re buying a new putter, you may want to consider face-balanced models. These putters encourage a more straight-through putting stroke than arced putters. They look like a mallet with a double bend shaft, but the idea isn’t original – face-balanced putters were developed by Dave Pelz, a legendary golf instructor.

Counter-balanced putters

When you are in the market for a new putter, consider counterbalanced models. They have several benefits and have been found to make putting easier for golfers. One benefit is that the putter is longer, and the extra length makes it easier to line up the ball at target lines. Another benefit is the stability and smooth motion they provide. Some counterbalanced putters also have adjustable weights in the grip for a more comfortable fit.

High MOI putters

One thing to look for when buying a new putter is the MOI (moment of inertia). Higher MOI putters can narrow the dispersion of your putts and reduce twisting, which can result from off-center hits. To test this, hit a ball in the center of your target area. The center ball will go the furthest, while the left and right balls will be shorter. High MOI putters will narrow the difference between a center hit and an off-center one, thus improving your putting consistency.

Metal faced putters

Whether you are looking for a traditional steel face, a grooved putter, or a hybrid putter, there are many factors to consider. Metal-faced putters produce a louder sound and are often easier to feel the connection on a ball. Metal putters are sometimes designed with milling to improve performance by reducing the amount of material that comes into contact with the ball. However, these putters are not as soft as insert putters.

Soft face inserts

When you’re shopping for a new putter, you may want to consider adding a soft face insert. The insert allows players to use a firm cover ball, yet still have a soft feel. Another recent development is the use of grooves on the putter face. These inserts allow players to adjust the weight of their putter to match their preferred putting style. They can also be useful for golfers who are looking to reduce the amount of twisting that occurs during a round.

Proper putting posture

There are a few things you can do to improve your putting posture and improve your stroke. One of the most important things is to bend your hips slightly while you’re putting and keep your hands hanging down naturally. Then, when you swing the putter, it will swing on an arc. Then, you’ll be able to see the intended line better.

Choosing a high MOI putter

Using a putter with a high MOI is a great way to make more putts. It can prevent twisting from off-center hits and help players keep the faces square on their mishits. High MOI putters also tend to be heavier, which makes them better for higher handicappers. A good fitter can help you choose a putter with the right shape for your stroke. There are hundreds of different putter models available.
