As we all know, Golf Putters are essential to your golf game! And putting accounts for about 40% of the strokes in your game. With a good putting stroke, you can knock a few strokes off your score. And some golfers may not spend as much time practicing their putting game and learning to read the green despite its importance. So, playing with the best putter for you and your putting style is critically important!

Here’s what you should know about Golf Putters and how a good putter can help you perform your best on the greens.

What is a Golf Putter?  

A Golf Putter is golf equipment specifically crafted for low-speed, short strokes around the putting green. The earliest Golf Putters in the 16th century were called “putting cleek.” The putter’s shaft was typically made from hazel or ash, while the head was made of a hardwood-like beech. In the 1900s, putter heads started to be made from iron, increasing the putter’s popularity and importance around the greens.

Bobby Jones was a legendary (winning) golfer who won the Grand Slam in 1930 with his famous putter, named Calamity Jane. His Golf Putter was so well-loved and used that he had to replace it with a second one with the same name, made by Spalding.  

The goal of this guide is to help you understand the factors you should be looking at for the best Golf Putters, with the quality and top-rated options that will deliver the results you’re looking for on the golf course. 

Putter design has continued to evolve since then. Karsten Solheim invented the famous Ping Putter in 1966. As history tells it, the putter was the “winner” for golfers who used it in 26 out of 40 championships throughout the 1980s. 

Why Do You Need the Right Golf Putters to Perform Well? 

Since every Golf Putter is unique, you’ll get a slightly different experience with each brand or model. Even the top pro golfers need to use suitable golf putters. About half of the pros use blade-style putters, and the other half use mallet-style putters. So golfers must choose what best fits their putting stroke style, whether blade or mallet. Getting fitted for a putter at your local pro-shop may help you select the right putter for your game.

    Always wanted a Scotty but reluctant of the price. However when I handle this I was sold. The balance and set up are perfect, hands down best putter I’ve owned. Best of both blade and mallet styling and the short slant hozel was what sold me the most. Builds confidence at address. Cheers!!

    So… I backed over my favorite mallet putter, a Taylormade Spider, and flattened it out without breaking the shaft so it “may” be reparable. I’ve returned, at least temporarily to my previous putters, a Babby Grace “Night and Day” and my Odyssey Sabertooth White Hot. A golf bud has loaned me his Odyssey White Ice D.A.R.T that has a nice feel but still getting those occassional 3 putts and misses within 3 feet so considering other options. Since I just turned 74, I’m near the end of my final round so want to get the best putter for me and have scheduled a putter fitting with the nearby GolfTEC location in hopes of finding my last putter that I can carry with me to that final hole (an 8 under). Thanks for the tips!!!
