SAM PuttLab Fitting/Putter Recs (Help Needed)

4 posts / 533 viewsLast Reply

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I get it. Didn't go do a fitting. I ordered the clubs with the same specs from my last fitting. Only thing I changed was going from Project X LZ 5.5 to Accura I80 stiff shafts.
    • Use the 2MP camera and just record separate swings. Everyone does. No need to record the same swing - your swing is pretty much the same every time.
    • My travels were to driving to Northern Michigan. Garland (Lewiston, MI) in July was originally planed for May but was pushed back.  Nice thing was they let us keep the “Early Bird” rate.  This was shen I got my 1st Ace 😃. Then went to Treetops (Gaylord, MI) in September.   Both trips involved masks & social distancing but were good, enjoyable trips. The breakfast buffets were cancelled but not a big deal.
    • Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case.  All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues.  So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge. Aloha, iSank
    • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP. I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?
