The importance of a proper fit putter is essential if you want to become a more successful player. Putting accounts for 40 % of your score, so why do most players want to get fit for the latest driver and often neglect the area that contributes the most to your success. I believe that the reason stems from golfers buying the latest putters online or off the shelf. Although these putters are from leading manufacturers and made from the highest quality materials, they can often hurt your game.
As a Certified Seemore fitter, I want to ensure you have the steps on getting the right putter in your hands. Ideally being fit will ensure trust in your equipment and the confidence to use it successfully. Fittings can be scheduled through me or if you aren’t local, I’d recommend your nearest Certified SPi Seemore Fitter or PGA Professional.
In closing, I strongly believe that being fit for your next putter will produce better results and I guarantee it will lower your score. I have prepared what I do during a regular fitting below:
The Fitting Process
PUTTER FIT (5-Step Fitting Process)
1. TAKE STATIC MEASUREMENT FOR LENGTH
(Use knuckles to ﬂoor chart)
2. LEARN ATHLETIC POSTURE
Establish athletic posture and tension free setup, hands and arms hanging naturally beneath shoulders (Tip: Use SPi Orange Training Ball)
3. LENGTH & EYELINE
Change length of putter—eyes fall over heel of putter/RST
On a 10-foot putt, check alignment 3-4 times for consistency
What is RST?
RST stands for Rifle Scope Technology, which is a system used by Seemore Putters to help aid alignment, improve the quality of your putting stroke and highlight incorrect movements which can be detrimental to your performance on the green. As a Seemore ambassador, this technology alone has helped both my students and I become better putters and by hiding the red dot reinforces what you should be doing over every putt.
