PXG - How Do You Choose the Perfect Putter?
While there are many different types of putters, finding the right one comes down to knowing your personal tastes and style preferences, as well as understanding the technology and adjustability available to enhance your putting stroke. PXG is one of the most innovative equipment companies we’ve come across and their putter lineup is positioned to help you win some green on the green.
To help you decide which putter is best for you, we’ve put together this putter buying guide featuring all of the information you need to choose.
Choosing the Right Putter
It is not unusual for golfers to make impulsive, emotional decisions when it comes to buying a putter. After a bad round or missed putt, it’s off to the pro shop to grab a new flatstick.
But why? When approximately 40% of golf is played on the green, your putter should be your “ride or die.” However, for the club we use the most, statistics show that the majority of golfers have never been professionally fitted for a putter.
That needs to change, and that change should start with a professionally fitted PXG Putter, optimized for your unique stroke.
To get the ball rolling, pun intended, start by choosing the putter that gives you confidence at address and makes putting feel as natural as possible. Then, here are some tips to help you find that perfect match:
Putter Head Type
The first thing you need to do is figure out which type of putter works best for your game. Blade and mallet putters are the two most common styles.
Mallet putters generally feature a large clubhead profile for added stability and forgiveness. Blade-style putters present a more straightforward design and are often favored by golf purists and lower handicappers.
Spine angle and hand position in a putting stroke are heavily influenced by the length of the putter. A proper putter shaft length will fit comfortably in the hands at setup and allow for a natural and free flowing putting stroke. PXG’s standard putter length is 34-inches
When it comes to choosing the right putter grip, it’s all about feel. What feels comfortable in your hands?
Loft & Lie
Both of these elements impact launch angle and roll characteristics. A PXG Fitting Specialist can help you dial-in your putter for the loft and lie characteristics to compliment your stroke.
Hosel…strange word for a critical technology that allows you to marry any putter clubhead style to your stroke to deliver the face square at impact.
Plumber’s Neck: For players who slightly rotate the clubhead.
Heel Shafted: For players who over rotate the clubhead.
Double Bend:For players who tend to push the ball.
Armlock: For players who desire greater control and stability with their putting stroke.
Center Shafted: For players who tend to push the ball.
PXG Battle Ready & PXG 0211 Putters
Now for more on the putters we love from PXG.
PXG Battle Ready Putters, available in nine distinctive head shapes, are milled from aerospace-grade aluminum or stainless steel. The brand’s flagship lineup introduces high-density tungsten inserts that are strategically positioned to enhance stability and boost MOI. In layman’s terms, these putters are fully optimized to give you the best chance technology currently affords to sink more putts.
PXG’s 0211 lineup adds five putters: V-42, Bayonet, Hellcat, Clydesdale, and Lightning. Each 0211 Putter features PXG’s bold Runway Reticle™ alignment aid and patented Pyramid Face Pattern technology for exceptional accuracy and consistency with every putt, as well as an outstanding sound and feel.
So, whether you prefer a mallet or a blade, a plumber’s neck or double bend hosel, with PXG you can eat with your eyes and get fitted for performance. And when you do, golf will be one player closer to “elevating” the game on the green.
