The putting formula
You’ll have heard people calling putting an art form and a science, but which is it? In this article, we’re breaking down how putting works and how to do it well.
When we watch the world’s best on TV, we only see that one hit-or-miss moment. We don’t see the countless hours on the putting greens, the time spent with coaches or the all-important fitting session. So, would you have holed the putt like Petterson to win the 2019 Solheim Cup? If you’re playing roulette when picking your putter, probably not.
As the stat shows, putting is done within fine margins. But you’re not on trial here and this isn’t a case of changing your stroke to hole those 8-footers. No, it’s up to us to find you a putter that suits your stroke type.
In PING’s 2021 range alone, you’ll find several putters to suit each stroke type. Whether it’s a toe-down model for players with a strong arc, a face-balanced putter for you straight-stroking putters out there or somewhere in between, you’ll never be short of options.
We can help you find the right putter for your stroke but, once we’ve done that, it’s time to think about what happens at impact. PING is way ahead, with its dual-durometer insert offering a firm back layer for distance control and soft Pebax front layer for precision when you’re inside striking range of the hole.
We understand that it’s hard to believe a putter works with your stroke to give you more control while also feeling fantastic at impact, but it does. You can feel the performance and see the results.
