well guys i'm looking to try a mallet putter i currently have an old ping anser 4 blade putter
a few months back i was playing and ran across another guy that was by himself too so we ended up playing together
long story short he was using a mallet putter and noticed i was struggleing with my putts and let me try his and it was much more comfortable then a blade
heres the problem i can't remember what brand it was and with the way i work the golf shops are closed when i'm off
i'll probably try to find a used one on here or ebay just looking for some opinions to start with or if someone here has one let me know thanks

I've been playing with an Odyssey White Hot XG Marxman Mallet putter for a long time now, and I love it to death. It's so easy to line up a putt with it, and the weight distribution is beautiful. Now if you don't quite like a mallet that big, another great club is the Odyssey White Ice #9 putter . It's much like the one Phil Mickelson has, and is very very comfortable and pleasing to the eye of those that don't quite like a bigger mallet. If you look around you should be able to buy the Marxman for around $120 new, and around $80 for a real good used one. The White Ice putter is fairly newer, but still in the same price range around $130 new, and you'll have to look hard, but I'm sure there will be a used one out there somewhere. I'm a big Odyssey believer and love their clubs. Although, to be reasonable and provide a less Odyssey-based bias, I'll give you some other suggestions. I wouldn't go with any Ping mallets, as most have way too much going on with the design, and can distract you from the task at hand. Seeing as your a beginner, I'd go with a Rife putter. Although Rife can be a bit expensive, the name is trusted and is perfect for anyone, especially a beginner. A good start is the Rife two-bar hybrid mallet putter . There are two interchangeable weights in the back of the putter to maximize the versatility of the club to adjust to the players swing. This will run you about $200 new, and around $130 used. The other option is the Rife Abaco . This club does not have the interchangeable weights, but both models include Rife's patented Roll Groove technology (to read more about it, click here ). This club is a little less costly with a new value of around $140 new, and if you can find a used one, it'll run you around $100. A newcomer in the putting world is Heavy Putter. They have exploded onto the putting scene, and done very well. Their Heavy Putter's are a unique, and very good innovation. They have combined extra weight to the putter to produce a smooth stroke, which eliminates unnecessary acceleration through impact, leading to severe inconsistency. Heavy Putter has different weight putters so they aren't all too heavy, or too light (can I say that with a heavy putter?), depending on the person. A good place to start is the Heavy Putter Matte B3. I think you can get a new one for around $150, and a nice used for around $100. Hope this selection has helped a little bit, and good luck on finding a putter! If you need any help, feel free to ask :) ~RHPM

Some mallets are face balanced and some are not, you should determine if that is important to you. Also some are center shafted, a toe weighted heel shaft will feel very different from a center shaft face balanced putter. I would go to a store and figure out the configuration you like and then compare different brands. Figure out your length too, I bought a 34" and was sorry, all my other putters are 35. Obviously from my sig I like Rossa putters, I think they are a good buy and feel very nice. Recently I spent time with a Scotty, Ping and Rossa that were all basically Anser 2s, I liked the Rossa best.

I have several mallett putters,I currently use the SG9 which is more a semi mallett.I have a Scotty Red X and a Ray Cook M-1.Malletts are nice but it takes a while to controll speed comming from a blade.I just treated myself to a Wilso new 8882 blade that will hit the market 2/1/10 and hopefully GPP will get it to me before my San Diego reunion with the old Marine buddies.

I have always played with blades.....I first had circa 1960's Wilson Shotgun (a $5 find), I then upgraded to TM Rossa CBG Daytona #1. I used this putter all last year, and improved quite a bit, but I suffer from the yips with it....blades (for me ) are tough to align properly. I have been in the market for a mallet for a few weeks, I really came down to Taylor Made Itsy Bitsy Monza Spyder (or so I thought). I played the rife putters recently as I was offered one in trade, and let me tell you...they are very nice. I tried the Aussie and the 2 bar hybrid. The Aussie did feel quite different from the 2 bar, but very nice non-the-less. I used to be a huge fan of the odessey putters, and I still like them, but I fin their inserts to be toooooo soft for me. I feel that I have to put in twice as much umph to get the same effect from the spyder of the rife putters.

I'd go to a store and play a few...get the feel for them and make a decision. I tried a Yes putter center shafted, and let me tell you it would be virtually impossible to get this thing out of perfect pendulum trajectory. Personally I didn't like the shape (nor the price) but it terms of mechanics, this putter made you put straight. I think the model was victoria or something of the sort. Hope this helps

    • A better way to say it would be using the leg to push the hip, here's a video of what I mean he's referring to the downswing but am I right in saying for the backswing should you do something similar, where you use your leg to push the hip rather than just trying to get the hip to turn clockwise   
    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.
