Hi, today we are going to talk about the influence in head design in putter fitting. In our putter fitting system every component effects the direction. Hosel design effects the direction, head design effects the direction, length of shaft, how many lines are on the putter. Today again we are just going to focus on head design. The most left influence head design is the thinnest most blade putter. The most right influence head design is the mallet head. If you tend to aim left all the time with a putter that has a little bit more of a thin influence here we put you in a mallet head to get you to aim a little more right.
Do Your Putts Go Right or Left?
There are some people that are opposite and I am one of them. I am the mallet head left, it takes a thinner head for me to aim right. In those components we use these to help effect direction and to figure out which one you aim the best. Based on your eyes and how you see, each one, some people like rounded backs which influence their eye, some people like straight cutaways, which again influence their eye.
Once that is settled you are able to work on hosel design and the amount of lines on the putter. But if you have an issue aiming one way or the other try a head design that is completely opposite of the one you have. It will really help you get an understanding of what putting really does to you. When you do it go to an extreme. If you use a putter like this then go way over here, or vice versa, but try to get as far away from the one that you normally putt with to really see the influence of the putter. It may not be right to you but you can really see the influence of the putter. Again: head design thinner, more left; fatter, more right, and use these influences to help you aim.
