Putting instructors have long talked about the advantages of maintaining a smooth, pendulum stroke and in allowing the larger muscles of the shoulders and back to swing the putter instead of any wristy motions involving the smaller muscles in the fingers, forearms, and wrists.
Unfortunately, some would say, the traditional putter does not do all that it can to suit the proper putting stroke. Those "some" have banded together to form a company and a line of putters known as "Heavy Putter." With putters weighing 90% more than traditional putters, Heavy Putters seek to help players eliminate the twitchiness of the smaller muscles and to smooth out strokes.
Do they work? I've spent a few weeks putting with the B3 mallet style Heavy Putter, and my opinion is set. Read on to see what I think.
