Putters are classified according to the shape of their face in: blade, perimeter weight and mallet and according to the position of the stick with respect to the head of the club in: heel -toe or those centered.
We can add to the classification the “broom putter”, which is the one with the characteristic of a long stick that is held by the player with one hand against the chest, making the stroke with the other hand.
The length of the putters is important, since it is linked to the position and route that the golf ball makes; it varies from 32 to 36 inches. As for the degrees of opening of the face, they fluctuate between 3 and 7 degrees.
It is essential to understand the characteristics of these clubs and over time choose the one that best suits our needs.
The most suitable putt for those who perform an easy pendular movement, are the neutrals, with weight distributed on the face of the club, center of gravity distributed in the center.
The “heel toe” (“heel tip”), with a weight more displaced towards the part of the tip and the heel of the putter, farther from the stick, recommended for those who make a bow-shaped putt swing.
