SAM PuttLab Fitting/Putter Recs (Help Needed)

4 posts / 582 viewsLast Reply

Hello all,

I've been researching for a bit and feel like I've found conflicting/non-specific info as it pertains to what kind of putter I need/want.

I've attached screenshots from a recent SAM PuttLab fitting and was hoping to get a better idea of what type of putter would best fit my stroke, which needs work.

I'm currently gaming a Ping Anser 2 (blade) with around 45 degrees of toe hang. My typical miss -- as you can see -- is generally left.

Any tips/info/help/critique is welcome. Thanks.

If more information is needed, please let me know.

Work on your stroke.

The putter is almost irrelevant. The forces and torques from putting are incredibly small and basically are completely overcome by the force required simply to hold the putter above the green.

No putter is really going to help you make a better stroke, or change that stroke very much, or work with that type of stroke.

Changing (improving) your stroke starts at setup. You may be aimed right since your path appears to be that way.

I agree with @iacas 100% @sportsguy89
I might add finding or experimenting with the type of putter gripe you are using.
Having the proper grip on the putter relieves tension and help promote a better stroke IMO.

If you are interested, I practice with a Laser Light (just a cheapy pen light will work)
Line up the light to your target with the ball centered and make your putt.
Using it will give you instant visibility of the roll and target line.

My guess is you close the face so much during the stroke to compensate for how far out your path is. It’s definitely a putting stroke issue more than a putter issue, IMO.

    • Updated Nevada rules, have to start wearing a mask on the range, went into effect yesterday 👎 Doing a lot of slow reps, taking it to 4 withe knees staying over the feet and then breathing into it. Legs are looking more stable, matching up well with the handle being more forward/shaft steeper on the downswing. When I can keep the femur "spread" it feels like the club works "straighter" into the ball rather than under and out to the right.   
    • Day 348 Superspeed workout and some tempo drills with 7-iron. Hit the ball really shitty, hope it was the dark. 
    • Isn’t the ‘low spin’ pertaining to the inner core as far as a smashed hit as with driver and not with a descending hit with grooves as from an iron? 
    • No. I only have 3: 48, 54, and 60. I’d rather have more clubs at the longer end of the bag. It is generally far easier to finesse a wedge than a long club. Additionally, when you finesse a wedge, it’s easier to retain spin and hold the green. Conversely, when taking something off a longer club, it’s harder to maintain spin and adequate landing angle to retain the green. Therefore, I’d rather have more opportunities at a stock number on the longer end of the bag than carry an additional wedge. 
    • Iron set wedges are 44(Pw) and 49(aw) vokeys are 54s and 60k set wedges are mainly full Shots. The 54 does everything inside 75 yards except bunkers and if I’m short sided in rough (that’s the k) I’m thinking of getting new irons next spring but wondering if I’ll have to get a 50 degree wedge (will most likely drop my 4h if 5i is long enough) with all of these new long hitting irons. Rogue x has a 46 degree gap wedge!
