I am looking to upgrade my putter from a cheap Top Flite putter I bought off ebay for $15 a few years back when I first started playing.

I have a $50 gift card to my local shop so I was thinking of picking up a used putter with it. I am also willing to throw in an extra $10-20 if I have to.

What are some decent used putters in that range I should keep my eyes open for. Obviously I will try them out in the shop before I buy it.

Thanks in advance.

Look at used offerings, you may really find a good score. Also, ask if the price marked is final; often they can adjust pricing on used clubs (especially if you're a good customer to them)

The new Cleveland putters are supposed to be in that range, aside from that, I don't know of any off hand in that price range new. Check and see what all they stock, and hit them all.

It should be fun to go and hit a bunch of new putters, to find the one that fits you, and your game, the best.

Check out the Ray Cook putters. I have a blade style Billy Baroo and I love it. They also have the blue goose, a milled putter thats only $60. You can order direct or from your store probably. The cleveland classic satin is a new milled putter thats also only $70.

I got my oddysey putter for $70, with only 1 round on it, from the guy I take lessons with.

If you take lessons with a pro, you might want to check if the shop or course he works at has some good deals, I got my putter and driver from a source like that.

Obviously pick the one that feels best to you and try as many as you can. Having said that the new Cleveland Classic line is nice, you can't beat a putter with a milled face for 70 bucks. I've also seen some of the older Taylormade Rosa models (older models but not used) for around 70-80. If you want to spend slightly more and walk away with a new putter, the Ping Karsten models run about 90. Still of course look into some used offerings, you could probably get a decent Odyssey, Ping, Nike or Yes! putter.

I ended up getting a lightly used Cleveland Classic putter for $59.99. It just felt and looked nice. I had my $50 gift card and a $10 off $50+ coupon so I walked out with the putter for $3.18. It was a tossup between that and a new Pinseeker putter. Thanks for the advice guys.

Most used golf stores allow you to return a used club you bought from them for 90-100% credit if you do it within a certain amount of time (30 days, 60 days). This seems like a good way to get a club. Try it, play a few rounds, return it for another one if you don't like it (or if you just want to try something else).

I got it at Roger Dunn Golf Shop and I am pretty sure I have 60 days.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
