How to find the most forgiving putter?
What golfer doesn’t long for the combination of Dustin Johnson monster drives with Brad Faxon’s impeccable touch on the green? Unfortunately, that day is just a distant dream for 99% of golfers who find themselves working every other day jobs except that of a professional golfer.
If it takes you just as many putts (if not more) on the green as it did from the tee to get you to that point, we’re willing to bet you may want to learn a thing or two about what makes a putter a bit more forgiving – and how you can get one of those in your hands!
If you’re looking for the most forgiving putter, here are a few things to keep in mind:
While we may be a French product, we are not speaking the language when we talk about MOI in golf. Break out your 9th grade science textbooks and you may remember something called Moment of Inertia (MOI). The MOI of a golf club measures the amount of resistance to twisting when a shot is hit off-center. In short – the least amount of movement the club face will deviate from its intended point of contact. Thus the higher the MOI, the more stable the putter face will be during the stroke.
When the MOI of a putter is increased, the less likely it is to move during the putting stroke. ARGOLF putters are designed for accuracy with a high MOI. The classic ARTHUR blade putter is a top-pick by both beginner and professional golfers. In addition to a full-shaft offset that enables the player to maintain precision at impact, its high MOI also allows the putter head to stay within the hole’s axis in case of misaligned shots.
2. SWEET SPOT
We’ve all heard almost every type of athlete refer to the ‘sweet spot’ of their equipment. For golfers, finding that ‘sweet spot’ is as much of a task as finding the needle in a haystack. Trying to make contact with the putter face in the exact same spot on every single stroke is nearly impossible. So what if your sweet spot was not only larger than the ball itself, but almost as large as the entire club face?
That seems to be mission impossible for golf club manufacturers these days. However, with the patented C-Claw technology from ARGOLF – mission achieved. Without using any face inserts, but only fine milling precision, C-Claw grooves on the face of the putter head not only improve topspin, but greatly diminish the skidding of the ball at impact. ARGOLF’s UTHER putter is one of the best in the Broceliande Collection that does exactly this. It keeps the ball on-line while also providing one of the softest feels on the putting green.
So many people are obsessed with having the perfect putting stroke. They practice for hours with a variety of training aids to obtain a smooth stroke while keeping the club face square at impact. But if you have the alignment similar to a broken sidewalk, don’t be surprised when your wallet feels a lot lighter after your next Sunday match.
In recent years golf club manufacturers have designed putters in all shapes and sizes with the intention to improve the player’s alignment. Unfortunately, many of these designs have just made it more distracting on the golfer when they set up to the ball; others have kept it clean and simple.
ARGOLF has incorporated the latter style into its putter collection to allow the player to concentrate on the task at hand – making a good stroke in the right direction. Almost every putter in the ARGOLF collection includes sight lines that help to improve the player’s alignment. Although you are able to customize the colors of most sight lines, they are designed in a minimalistic way that provides maximum results.
In summary – a high MOI, increased sweet spot and appropriate alignment lines are the three things you should keep at the top of your list during your search for the most forgiving putter.
Lucky for you, you will find this perfect trifecta in almost every putter within the ARGOLF Broceliande Collection.
