Striking the Perfect Balance

Striking the Perfect Balance

Nothing is more proven to help a player sink more putts than harnessing a smooth putting stroke that can withstand the pressure. But as most of us know, developing a TOUR-caliber putting stroke is much easier said than done.

While most of us are still grinding towards this goal, there is one factor toward better putting completely in your control: Finding the ideal putter that fits your unique player profile.

Owning equipment geared to your individual swing mechanics throughout your bag is critical to shooting the lowest scores possible. With this in mind, it’s important to understand that the undisputed most-important club in your set is the flatstick. The main reason for this is the sheer amount of strokes golfers take on the greens. 


So what's the very first step in finding the perfect putter? We believe the answer is understanding putter weighting. This vital factor is one anyone must consider before spending a dime. Make sure you do your research beforehand to help you avoid a costly purchase that keeps you right where you’ve always been.

Identify Your Putter

So what kind do you yield do you need - a toe-weighted putter, a heel-toe weighted putter, or a face-balanced putter? If you aren’t exactly sure there’s a fast and easy way to find out.

Balance the shaft of your putter on one finger. Once set, see what position the putter head is in.

What’s the Difference?

The answer is center of gravity. Toe-balanced putters (blades) swing at a larger open-to-close arc, while face-balanced (mallets) open and close at a far less rate.

Heel-toe weighted putter hit that sweet spot in the middle between the blade and the mallet. While these look reminiscent of the traditional blade, they feature more weight in both the heel and the toe to achieve a more consistent strike and forgiveness.

Identify Your Stroke

Now that you understand the difference, which is the right weight for you. To know for sure, you need to examine your putting stroke.

Straight-back-and-straight-through strokes with little club head rotation tend to benefit most from face-balanced, or mallet putters. Those with highly pronounced rotation in their stroke gravitate toward toe-weighted putters, or the blade. Lastly, those with slight rotation seek the heel-toe weighted variety.

One Size Does Not Fit All

Finally, it’s important to note that no one rule applies to every player. You may find great success in having a slight arc and playing with a face-weighted putter. The above-mentioned material is simply a guide to point you in the right direction for your next putter purchase.

No matter what kind of putter is right for you, every player needs to be able to read the green and put in the valuable time in practice. The Perfect Putter is a tool specifically designed to help you improve your putting and skills reading the green.
