Putter is extremely important part of every woman’s golf club set. You could say that all clubs are equally important, but in my opinion, some clubs are especially significant and putter is one of them. In case you don’t already know, putter is the club you use to finally deliver golf ball to the hole. Final shot is extremely important and getting it right might make a big difference in your results. That’s why i think choosing the best putter as a woman is so important. On the other hand, best can mean different things to many people, so i don’t think there is one particular putter that will work for everyone. Rather, there are few excellent putters for people with different needs. I chose to review three of them today, hopefully at least one of them will match what you’re looking for. If not, you can read other tips and tricks i’m going to share to help yourself while choosing different putter. I should also note that putters can take a little bit long to get used to, especially if you’re going from light putter to heavy one(or vice-versa), or if you’re switching between putters of different head shapes. So if it doesn’t work out straight away, it might not be putter’s fault.
With that being said, putter alone can’t fix your game. In golf, as in most sports, it’s mainly the practice that improves your game more than anything else. Quality and design of golf clubs is of course important, but that only comes into play when you know how to hit clubs properly. Despite that fact, there are some golf errors that putters can fix. Best ladies’ putters are usually very forgiving, which means that they reduce the impact of bad shot on your overall outcome.
Mastering the art of putting is extremely important and luckily, also very easy. It takes a lot of practice, of course, but unlike other long-distance shots, to practice putting you don’t need that much of a space. There are many putting aids and mats that you can set up indoors to achieve complete mastery of this skill. Some golfers set up these things in their backyards just to have fun. I don’t have one myself, but my friend does, and we have great time every time i go visit him at his home. Putters also make very good gifts – Christmas is coming up soon, so if you have someone special who likes to play golf, keep in mind that putting mat, putter, or both, will certainly make a great gift.
Choosing the best putter as a woman depends on the type of your stroke more than anything else. There are two basic types of stroke – one when the ball goes straight, and the other during which ball creates slight arc on its way to the hole. Face balanced putters were created for ladies with straight-to-straight strokes. Toe-balanced putters, on the other hand, work great for golfer women whose strokes have slight arc. Determining what type of stroke you have is fairly easy, but it requires physical demonstration, which is impossible in this blog post. So if you don’t already know, ask someone experienced or seek out golf instructors.
It’s also important for putter to be aesthetically pleasing to look at, but its colors can and should also serve greater purpose. Well thought-of color palette can really help your focus when you’re hitting the golf ball.
Weight of putter
The amount of weight that your ideal putter should have also depends on your swing. Women usually don’t choose very heavy putters, because hitting them takes a lot of power, which makes your shot unpredictable and inaccurate. On the other hand, you don’t want your club to be too light – shots will lack any consistency. These are two extremes, obviously. There are some ladies who like a bit of extra weight, and there are others who prefer lighter putters. It all depends on your physical characteristics and style of playing golf. You can try out many different putters at retail stores. That might be helpful in determining the right weight of putter for you.
Length of Putter
Just like the weight, length also depends on your individual characteristics – mostly on length of your arms. Average for men’s putter is 34 inches. There is no exact number for women, but putters for women obviously have to be shorter than the ones for men. Solution to this confusion is to buy putters in person, rather than ordering them from online store. But if you don’t, that’s not a deal-breaker either. If you buy a putter and it turns out to be too long for you, most local golf club servicemen can fix it for you by cutting off an inch or two.
