T###Tends to work best for golfers who have more face rotation in their putting stroke or are looking to increase the amount of face rotation. For golfers who tend to miss putts to the right (toe hang helps close the face at impact if you have a tendency to leave it open).
Not to mention, how do I know if I need toe hang putter?
If the toe is drooping slightly, that means you have some semblance of toe hang in your putter. If the toe/face point towards the sky, you have a face-balanced putter. The neck design (slant, plumber's, etc.) and shaft bend directly affect the amount of toe hang in a particular putter.
Having said that, what is a face balanced putter? Face Balanced describes putters that have a face that faces upwards when you balance the shaft on your finger. This will mean that the centre of gravity is directly below the axis of the shaft.
Nonetheless, does toe hang matter?
At this point, the answer to our final question should be obvious: yes, toe hang is important to putter fitting. If you want a putter that you can swing consistently, that you can hit on the center of the face,with a club face that you can control, you need the correct toe hang.
Should I get a 34 or 35 inch putter?
Most putters sold off of the rack are 35 inches in length. ... Very few men will need a 35-inch putter and very few women will need a 34-inch putter. Even if you're on the taller side—over 6 feet for men and over 5 feet 8 inches for women—it still doesn't mean you'll need a longer putter.
To see whether a putter is face-balanced or toe-hang, you can perform a simple test. You want to balance the shaft of the putter horizontally across your open palm, allowing the head to rotate to its natural resting position. If the face points directly to the sky, you have a face-balanced putter.
Expensive putters typically have nice balance and heft and a grip that's set so the face can be squared easily to the target line. Just a degree off is hard to see, but it's a small difference that matters. An expensive putter that's fit to the player can make a positive difference, too.
But if your stroke is sound then a putter can make the world of difference, some putters fit different stroke styles better than others and some just give you confidence which is what sometimes you may need. ... If your stroke is good, a good putter will help a bit. If your stroke needs work, no putter will help.
That is good advice for any golfer, but it is important for players using a straight back straight through stroke because there isn't much feel in the hands when swinging the putter in this manner. ... To get started with an arc stroke, first work on taking a stance that is slightly further away from the ball.
Arc Stroke Many claim this style allows for greater control, and unlike the straight-through shot, your eyes are slightly inside the ball and behind it in the setup. Instead of following a straight line, though, the putter's face opens in the back and closes through the stroke, creating a slight arc.
Unless you're 6'2" or more, then your 35 inch putter will not allow you to set up correctly and will not give you the best chance to make a good stroke. And just cutting down your putter will not work because it will then be too light.
Subscribe To The Magazine. Woods' usual gamer is 35.25 inches in length, which means his new wand is likely approaching, at least, 35.5 inches — the official length has yet to be confirmed — a number that's above average on Tour.
Cameron credits years of video research with helping him design putters that feel good in a golfer's hands. He cites the characteristic soft trailing edge of his putter heads as a reason golfers like his putters, explaining that the feel of the soft edge helps to lessen the tension many players encounter when putting.
absolutely not. In the end - it's a flat piece of metal on a stick. Outside that, it's all on the golfer, not the equipment. Ya they're worth it if you use one and it feels like the best putter you've ever used.
