Does your putter fit you? Only 5 percent of people fit into the standard putter that you can purchase in a golf store or golf shop. It’s like a shoe store only offering size 9 shoes. If you want a putter to feel comfortable and perform consistently, a fitting is required.
The fitting objectives are to find the correct head design, length, loft, lie, toe hang, weight and grip specifications that will allow the golfer to putt their best. To find these specifications, it takes an experienced golf professional, state-of-the-art technology and an inventory of putters. Another important ingredient is what looks, feels and sounds good to the golfer. Here at the Ironworks Golf Academy, our goal is to improve five factors of putting:
- Finding the putting line
- Aiming your putter correctly
- Starting the ball on your line
- Controlling the speed
- Developing a sound mental game that allows you to feel confident and perform at your best every time
A fitted putter will improve every factor except reading the green. For more information on the importance of a custom fit putter, check out the video below:
