What to look for when buying a golf putter

When choosing a golf putter, you want one that feels comfortable and suits your putting stroke (face balanced or toe hang). The overall length of the putter, weight of the putter and the grip of the putter all should be chosen with comfort in mind. Once you have made the decision you should have your putter lie angle checked to enusure that your putter sits flat for the best alignment possible.

Golf putters are arguably the most important club in your golf bag as they are the club that puts the ball in the hole. Taking the time to research and determine the best suited putter for your game will pay off in the end. There are alot of golfers using the wrong style of putter for their stroke. Once you pick a putter and determine it is right for your putting stroke, make an appointment with a certified PGA of Canada Professional or Certified club fitter to ensure the putter specs are dialed in.
