The definitions are: Sweet Spot - Only the best contact. The kind that makes your loins sing. The kind you can't imagine hitting much better. The kind that produces virtually no twisting. It's not "solid but a little on the toe" or "half a groove thin." It's just about perfect. If the Rules of Golf define virtual certainty as about 95%+, then "sweet spot" means you're virtually certain it can't get any better. Solid Contact - A shot that flies pretty much like the other "good" shots. Tops, shanks, thins, fats… they're out the window, as are shots more than 1/3" to 1/2" from the sweet spot. Solid contact feels good, and you'll take them all day, but they're not the purest it can get. As for me, I voted… 9 for solid contact, and 1 for sweet spot.
So I watched Seve's video on the short game on YouTube. (His English was a little rusty, but you can understand him). When he got to the portion of the video on putting, he did a little demonstration on the sweet spot of his putter, (I believe it was a Ping Anser with the slot in the bottom). And he showed that the sweet spot was on the heel side of center with a golf ball and tapping it on the face until there was balanced movement, I guess. So I tested this theory on 8 of my 9 putters. All of my toe hang putters were slightly toward the heel, my face balanced putters are hard to figure out, but possibly the center. So my question is do different types of putters have different sweet spot locations?
