SAM PuttLab Fitting/Putter Recs (Help Needed)

4 posts / 581 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.

    • Day 347 Did rehearsal backswing practice in patio door mirror. Then did some tempo drills with 7-iron hitting balls at about what felt like 75% speed. 
    • Day 2 Week 5 Worked on 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 irons. Focus on that 3/4 swing and correct grip.  Finished up the session with my Driver 
    • I play local sports podcasts on a Bluetooth speaker in my cart, but only when playing by myself (which I usually do) or with my family for whom I know it doesn’t bother.
    • Weird Science, bogey. This movie is just dumb, and only nostalgia keeps this from being a double or worse. Additionally, the fact that it's like 80 minutes helps. At least it's over quickly.
    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
