Is Your Putter Too Long?


Most putters are too long.

Putter fitting is essential if you want to putt well. A badly fitted putter will cause built in compensations and errors into your stroke and make it impossible to reach your potential to become a good, consistent putter which in turn allows you to enjoy your game and have fun playing golf.

The simple steps to fitting your putter are :

  • Comfortably address the ball with your eyes directly over the ball which is between the toes but ahead of your feet by about 8-inches.

  • Lightly grip the putter with your arms straight (not stiff).

  • The correct length (assuming it is too long to begin with ) will be from a point about 0.5-inches above the upper hand to the sole of the putter.

For more depth on this, please consult your copy of The Fundamentals of Putting, Chapter 2.
