Cutting down belly putters

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a new taylormade belly putter on eBay because the price was too low to ignore. I am fairly new to the game but absolutely love it. I would really like to cut the putter down and make it a standard size putter but I don't know anything about the possibilities of that. Like I said I am new to the game so this may be a simple question but I really don't know the answer

You can take it to a local golf store, Golfsmith, Golf Galaxy and they'll do it for you.

Thanks A lot.

Is there any reason to not do this at home?  I've been wondering the same thing lately after I saw a long putter in a local used store.  I figure it is just chopping off the excess length from the grip end, deburring the cut end and cleaning it up a little, then slipping on a new grip.

The loft/lie of belly putters is mostly the same as a standard putter.  The lie of a long putter is a lot more upright (70-71 versus 80/81*) 

Can be done with belly putters at home--can't be done with the long putter without bending the shaft or redrilling the head.

Yes you can shorten it. but you will end up with a putter that is heavier than normal. You may like it. I didn't.

(the head of belly putters is heavier than the head of standard putters)

Okay, thanks, I'll have to rethink this a bit.

I recently cut down an Odyssey 2-ball putter from belly length to standard length and had the same experience as the poster above .  . . feels too heavy in the head.
