So you haven’t been hitting your putts on line recently… I HAVE A SOLUTION. A SHORTER PUTTER!
- A shorter putter ultimately leads to more control for any player. If you stand up straight, the butt-end of your putter should be just at the wrist. Not only will a shorter putter allow you to dictate the head path a lot easier, but it will bring your eyes closer to the ball; this will help you see the line a lot better. You want your eyes to be no more than one inch behind the target line.
According to PGA.com, the average height of a tour player is 6 foot, and the average length of their putter is 33.5 inches. Have you ever seen Phil Mickelson? The giant is putting with a toothpick.
Noticing that most amateurs are in need of a 33 inch putter, Scotty Cameron’s latest collection is the 2017 Cameron & Crown series. Most people would counter that a 33 inch putter throws off the weight, which is what makes this series special. The Cameron & Crown putters are designed with strategically placed weights and a 10-inch matador grip. Whether you are looking for a blade or a mallet, the Cameron & Crown line has a head that will fit your eye.
Next time you are in the market for a putter, reconsider what length you want because after all ,putting is where the money is at.
