Need Some Advice on Putter Weighting


Recommended Posts

I have read a lot on the subject of cutting a putter shaft and then needing to add a couple grams of weight per swing point to get the balance back.

My current putters are the Odyssey 2 ball white hot and the #5. Both Center shaft.

New length to be 33".

Specs on these are 355 gr heads, and Odyssey used the same head for 33,34, & 35 inch lengths.

Question i am hoping to get some input on is should I add 12-20 grams into the shaft with the Tungsten powder, or leave them alone?

thx

Mike

Good question.

I recommend, since you have the chance, experimenting.

Find a way to add weight to the butt end and to the head end, even if it's kinda janky for now (like taping nickels to the head or something).

Try out various combinations, and roll balls toward a string 15 or 20 feet away. Don't count your first putt with any different weight configuration, but roll another 4 or so toward the string. If you obviously mis-hit one or hit one with a bad stroke, discard that one. But your goal is to stop the ball on the string.

What you're looking for is the weight combination/setup that allows you the tightest grouping. It doesn't matter what the average is, just that they're the closest distance-wise. In other words, four balls all about a foot past the string is better than four balls with two six inches short of the string and two others four inches past the string.

Then, that's your weight combination/setup.

Thank you for that........I never thought of trying this.

So cool

Try leaving it as is and putting on a practice green.

After 10 putts try adding some sticky lead weight, and from the same distance try 10 more putts.

I think you can see where I'm going with this.

Whatever weight gives you the most confidence making putts is right for you.

Thank you sir.

This and iacas's reply help me to do this right.

    • The longest club I feel confident swinging in this scenario would be my 8 iron. I want to feel that way about my 7 and 6 irons, but the truth is I'm most likely to miss the green with one of those clubs.  ...The longest club I'd want is my PW though... 🙂
    • Thanks Boogielicious. I'm going to try that out asap!
    • Thanks for the tip, I didn’t realise it would come back on so quickly. Only used around 3% overnight, normally 25/30 % Its 5pm here, Ive used 30% battery today and that’s with the golf app using gps on a four hour round.

    • Great topic! My Goals for 2021: GOALS Single digit Index (Currently 11.6) More birdies that "others" (blow up holes are my Achilles heal) GIR: 40%+  FIR: 55%+ (currently 48% and I'm generous in what I consider a fairway hit) Scrambling 25%+ Play a lot of golf! ACTIONS Track hole by hole stats on every round Focus on swinging "within" myself - tempo and control - I get too aggressive and leads to problems Mental toughness - nicer to myself after screw ups  Getting my hips through (swing thought is hitting the ball with my right hip) Proper fitting and gear upgrade as makes sense Reread Lowest Score Wins! - embrace the wisdom for smarter golf Consistent fade with driver - Currently a 2-way miss is giving me fits Lock in on my putting set up Develop a more consistent golf fitness plan
