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 TaylorMade’s TP Hydro Blast range alone, you’ll find putters to suit each stroke type. If you’ve got a strong arc, we can find a putter with plenty of toe-hang for you. If your stroke is straight as an arrow, you’re not short of face-balanced options to deliver what you need.
Right, so let’s say we’ve found a putter that suits your stroke… Now what? We look at what happens at impact. But we don’t even need to worry about that because TaylorMade’s now-legendary Pure Roll insert – found in all the models – feels amazing at impact and gets the ball rolling with precision & consistency.
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.
