The putter is a critical club in your golf set, and if you don’t have confidence in your putter, it’s difficult to shoot lower scores. A putter fitting can be the perfect way to help you match up the perfect putter for your stroke. However, in order to have a great putter fitting, here are our top five tips.
Choose The Right Putter Fitting Location
The putter fitting location is one of the most important factors in this process. At True Spec, we have more than 50,000 club and shaft combinations, making it easy to find a putter head that will work for your game.
In addition, putter fitting takes specific equipment that not all locations will have in place. Make sure that the putter fitting location you choose has what you need. Not all True Spec locations have a putter fitting studio; check the available fitting types at the individual locations.
Bring Your Own Putter
Make sure to bring your current putter with you to your putting fitting. Having this with you will help you find the differences between your old technology and the potential new technology you will invest in.
Consistency is one of the biggest things to look for between your old and new putter.
Be Open About The Brand
All True Spec fittings are brand agnostic and set up that way for a reason. When you can be open to other brands, the chance of finding the right fit for your game is considerably higher.
Pay Close Attention To Feel and Looks
Even when a putter performs well for you from a stats and data standpoint, you still need to ensure that the looks and feel are appealing. On the golf course, you have to feel confident about the club you have in your hand; that is where looks and feel come into play.
This is the case with all clubs in the bag, but especially the putter.
Know Your Tendencies On The Course
What is making you want to choose a new putter? Do you have trouble with your short putts, long putts, consistency, speed control, etc. Having a good idea of what is causing you to miss putts on the course and then taking that to your putter fitting is one of the smartest things you can do.
