Your height and your putter length - Page 3

post #37 of 111

Re: Putter Length?

I'm 6'3" so probably a 34" or 35"?

Re: Putter Length?

35" for sure.

Re: Putter Length?

Go for the 35

I'm 5'11 and 34 BARLEY feels just right.

Re: Putter Length?

I'm 5'11" and I use a 34" putter. I love it.

I have tried 35" and belly putters and what works for me is 34". I even went to the extent of trying all these sizes with the same putter (TaylorMade Rossa Daytona). I found 34" works perfect for me. But again, I believe you have to have confidence and feel comfortable with ur equipment.

Re: Putter Length?

I'm 6' and I use a 35", it works for me. Odessey makes great putters ( I have the White Hot #6), but I just ordered the new Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2.

Re: Putter Length?

I must be the odd monkey in the barrel, because I am 6'0" and I like the 33" shaft. I had a 34" and choked down on it before, but the balance didn't feel right to me. I went to a 33" and am happy with the feel now. I almost went with 32.5" and would probably have liked it a little better, but I will stick with what is working for now.

I feel that the shorter shaft lets me bend over further to get my eyes directly over the ball and get a good shoulder rotation with a nice pendulum motion. I can't spend too much time at once on the practice green as my back will ache after about 20-30 minutes, but once out on the course, I don't stay in that position for long so it doesn't bother me during a round.

Re: Putter Length?

It depends on your putting stance. If you like to bend a lot then get a 33, but if you like to be more upright get a 35". The 35" will give you a bit more versitility as you can always choke up on it on shorter putts and grip it at the end for long bombs.

Re: Putter Length?

I definitely would like to be more upright. I feel I'm way too bent over with my current putter and I think that's part of the reason why I have issues with putting a lot of the time.

Not necessarily. Lots of tall people use short putters. It depends on your stance.

Read through this thread and you'll see not every tall person has a tall putter and vice versa.

5'9" and 34", but its all about comfort. I know a 6'3" guy who uses a 33" putter and bends over the ball like Jack Nicklaus, but is one of the best putters I know.

Re: Your height and your putter length

I'm 5'11" and use a 35" putter. I use a semi-split grip and place my RH pretty far down my grip.

5' 8" and I use a 34".

Re: Your height and your putter length

How do you go about lie on a putter? I've never even really thought about it.

I'm thinking either the Sabertooth (which I've tried out briefly) or the White Hot #1, which I haven't had a chance to hit yet. I'm obviously going to get in and try out the #1, but has anyone else putted with it before? Did you like it? If the #1 feels as good as the Sabertooth did, I'm going to go with that just because it's cheaper.

Anyhow, on to my main question. What length putter should I get? Is there a way that this should be measured or is it all about preference?
Jrode,
I like your idea of starting with the putter if you are building a set as $$ becomes available. Your putter is probably the most important club with respect to personal preference. Definately get into a good pro shop and get someone to fit you for length / lie / grip, etc. Hit as many different styles as you can tolerate and then make your choice. Good luck & enjoy practicing with your new best friend....

I'm 6'5" & stand very upright so I have a 36" Anser putter (standard lie & grip)

5'8 - 33 inch putter

Re: Your height and your putter length

5'7
35" I choke down about an inch - I'm planning on cutting it down an inch anyway.
I stand pretty tall with my putting stroke however.

My yes is 33.5" which works out fine but I do have to bend over a tad more

Re: Your height and your putter length

Just got a new putter and I'm loving the length.

5'9
34" Ping Karsten C67

It's 1inch longer than my old one but I actually putt better with this one. I think the no offset shaft has more to do with it than the length though.
