Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, Arizona Golf Lessons Update: Monday, May 10, 2010
Putting is a part of the game game that most golfers neglect when it comes to playing with the right putter. What determines the right putter? Well, below the image is a short list:
1. Correct length
2. Correct lie angle
3 Correct loft
4. Correct shape*
5. Correct grip*
6. Correct weight*
For numbers 3, 4, and 5: The shape of putter-head, grip size and texture, and weight of putter falls under the area of preference determined by the player.
For numbers 1, 2, and 3: For best results – you kneed to see a professional flitter to measure your length, lie, and loft angle via a putter loft and lie machine. For length: a static measure of your wrists measured to the floor/ground will be taken.
The benefits of a properly fitted putter are more putts holed. And confidence, which can overflow to other parts of your golf game.
I recently had my Wilson 8802 putter checked for proper loft [4 degrees] and lie angle. The results at Golf Galaxy reveled my putter needed a lie angle adjustment. The cost was only $9.99, and the benefits far outweigh the cost. I can say with confidence, I am putting better because of the lie angle change.

Drive for show and putt for dough, right?
