    Women's Putter

    I don't think my putter is right for me, but then again, I'm not sure. The putter that I have is the one that came with my set. Its really light and has no weight or balance to it. Is there a thing as getting fitted for a putter?

    Is there much of a difference between men's and women's putters?
    In my Catalina cart bag:

    Hybrid (3): RBZ
    Hybrid (4-6): Diablo Edge
    Irons (7-LW): X22s
    Putter: 2ball Backstryke
    Golf Balls I use NXT Tour S

    Absoutley get fitted for your putter. It is probably the most important club you use during a round of golf. You certainlu use it more often than any other club. You will need to find out the best length for you as well as your preferred style of putter also. I highly recommend a fitting as you will certainly see marked difference in having something custom fitted your game.

    I am not aware of the differences between men and womens putters but would expect it to be more weight specific than anything else.

    Best thing ever is a putter that fits you.If you have a putter that makes you feel like you can sink any putt you have a foot up.

    Re: Women's Putter

    odyssey makes a ladies specific line of putters. it is called 'Divine Line'. without having the literature in front of me......I believe there are 3-4 different styles. all are odyssey'esque styles but geared toward women in length and grip size. I would have to read further about weight. I have one model and have rolled it around on the practice green, a few holes on the course, and hours in the shop.....

    I'd suggest it for any woman who is looking for a good fit in an OTR putter.

    My wife is practicing with a SeeMore on the carpet this winter. Hope she ends up liking it. If she doesn't, I'll use it.

    I was fitted for my putter and this is what the fitter came up with:

    36.5" long
    2 flat (my irons are 3 upright)
    4 of loft

    It is definitely worth getting fitted.

    Re: Women's Putter

    I grew up playing standard length men's putters. and always found I was gripping down beyond the grip. so i started cutting them down....adding weight....to get them just like I liked. I did that for years and years until I finally bit the bullet and went custom. I've been with my current boyfriend for two full seasons now. 33" and 360 grams. back in my younger days....I would go as low as 28 1/2". my back can't support that length anymore.

    fwiw.....current boyfriend.....best.one.ever.

    custom really does pay.

    A fitted putter is definitely the way to go. The fitting itself identifies, and solves a lot of poor putting issues. Trick is to find a qualified fitter who knows what he, or she is doing.

    Another thing you can do to test your current putter is to put a penny down about a foot, or two in front of the ball, on a known level surface. Then putt the ball trying to roll it over the penny. If you can roll the ball over the penny just about every time, you have a good putting stroke, and your putter fits your putting stroke. If you can't roll the ball over the penny consistently then either you have a poor putting stroke, and/or your putter does not fit your putting stroke.

    Provisional's suggestion is a good way to practice at home on carpet or even hardwood floor. Another thing to do is draw a line on the ball using the Line M Up tool and putt with the line going in the same direction as your putt. If you can putt and keep the line on the ball straight, you're putting a good roll on it.

    I have two good putting exercises. One is with a ball from Ping that has one white and one bright pink hemisphere. You line it up so when you putt, the ball rolls straight along the dividing line. This tells you if you are pushing or pulling as well as cutting across the ball.

    The second one is two balls stuck together with a bit of silicone. You try to putt both balls so they roll together in a straight line. I will almost guarantee that at least the first few times, it will go around in a circle instead of straight.

    Putting can be frustrating. Sometimes when I practice putting at home - I put a small mirror on the floor. If I can see myself - I'm keeping my head down. I also have a 3-foot piece of 2x4 that I putt on. The goal is to keep the ball on the board.

    That 2x4 drill sounds intriquing.I will have to try that.Have you ever tried putting on a linoleum floor.That will show up a bad stroke too.
