Everyone knows that your putter is used for the most strokes in every round of golf you play. Some golfers have that trusty flat stick they just can’t give up and others, like me, are constantly tinkering with a new wand in hopes of finding that magic stroke that saves pars and drains more birds!
Here is a look at some of the putters I have tested so far this season:
argolfusa.com | $329
The name of this putter speaks volumes because it is magical and that’s why its in my bag. For those of you that have been around the game for decades think of a “bullseye” with a rear flange. This center shafted putter is a heavy one allowing for a pendulum stroke and is toe weighted which is perfect for an arced stroke.
BETTINARDI QUEEN B 10
bettinardi.com | $400
This award winning traditional looking mallet is sweet on the eyes and provides an even sweeter roll. The Champagne Silver finish speaks elegance while the Honeycomb milled face produces exceptional feel. This putter is a winner in my book. No wonder more tour players are adding Bettinardi putters to their bags!
CLEVELAND HUNTINGTON BEACH SOFT 1
clevelandgolf.com | $130
This plumbers neck blade has impressive feel. It features Speed Optimized Face Technology which results in amazing distance control no matter where the ball strikes the face. I also loved the custom fill colors you can select at checkout to really make the putter your own.
MLA GOLF TOUR XDREAM
mla.golf | $329
This full sized mallet putter truly is a dream. With the interchangeable weights you can customize to your stroke, but their patented Multiple Line-detector Activation technology is the real game changer. The white sight line really improves your alignment resulting in better lags and more holed putts.
SUB70 SYCAMORE 002 MID-MALLET
golfsub70.com | $180
I was very impressed with the sleek matte carbon black finish of this putter and the sound off the face as well. Weighing a little more than most putters on the market at 390 grams it produces a better tempoed stroke. The benefit of this brand is that all products are sold at factory direct pricing. You just can’t beat the value here.
TOUR EDGE PURE FEEL TEMPLATE SERIES ALPS
touredge.com | $99
For your money you won’t find a better putter. The micro-groove face provides outstanding feel and promotes immediate topspin which you notice right away. I fell in love with the jumbo PureFeel TAC grip featuring never-before manufactured thermal plastic that is born from a special process called Thermal Plastic Suspension Polymerization.
SACKS PARENTE SERIES 54M
sacksparente.com | $600-$1200
This putter is a true diamond in the rough. Their patented Ultra Low Balance Point technology is such a stroke changer. You can feel the head square and release at impact. Additionally you can customize grip, hosel position, length, shaft and putter crown. I have never been a big fan of a mallet, but I can confidently say that now I am.
