|JFG - Two Great Putting Tips!
|Putter – The Most Important Club to Custom Fit
Golfers use the putter more than any other club in the bag, yet it PUTTER FITTING rarely gets the
attention it deserves. 43% of the average golfer’s shots are struck with the putter. Yet how do most
golfers buy a putter? By trial and error, with the emphasis put almost entirely on the “look” or the
design features of the putter head, instead of the 4 critical putter fitting elements which, if properly
fit, could strip strokes off your score.
If the putter’s Length, Loft, Lie and overall Weight Balance are not matched to each golfers style of
putting there is little chance the putter will start the ball online and lower your score...PERIOD!
One of the most dramatic putting improvement tools within custom fitting has proven to be the
use of a heavy weight inserted into the very grip end of the putter shaft. This is a putter fitting
technique called ‘COUNTER WEIGHTING.”
|How does putter counter weighting work and what golfers will benefit?
Golfers who putt well have a high level of fine motor control skill. That simply means they
have the neuro-muscular ability to move and control objects with their hands at slower
speeds in a consistent, repeating and very precise manner. For those of us who do not
have fine motor control, by putting a substantial amount of weight in the end of the putter
shaft, our hands now feel that heavier weight and are better able to move in a more
consistent, repeating manner.
Golfers who have proven to improve their putting with a counter weight all have one or
more of the following putting habits:
•Tendency to both pull and push putts off line
•A higher than average incidence of off center hit putts
•Inconsistency with distance control – some putts short and some putts long
•The path of the putter back and through the ball can be jerky, not very smooth and
The most commonly used putter counterweights are the 60g, 80g and 100g weights, with
the 80g and 100g counterweights being the most commonly used by most golfers for the
putter. There is no question the chance of improved putting performance with a heavy
counter weight in the putter is very high. From our own work with golfers, we estimate the
putting improvement rate for counter weights to be over 90%.
