Putters are designed for one basic purpose, to get the ball in the hole, but they’re all different, why?
Today I want to discuss one of the design features of a putter, loftRoblox HackBigo Live Beans HackYUGIOH DUEL LINKS HACKPokemon Duel HackRoblox HackPixel Gun 3d HackGrowtopia HackClash Royale Hackmy cafe recipes stories hackMobile Legends HackMobile Strike Hack
All putters can be described as having loft, positive, zero or negative. Loft is the angle of the putter face when compared to vertical. The loft of the club will indicate whether it’s to be played forward, middle or back of your stance. Whether you putt with a ‘forward press’ in the stroke like Phil Mickelson or with your hands behind the ball like Zach Johnson.
The importance of loft is to create the correct impact position to raise the ball slightly off the ground so it’s sitting on top of the grass and to reduce the amount of ‘slide’ on the ball before pure roll begins.
Too much loft and the ball will pop up in the air like a mini-chip shot, too little loft and the ball will be hit into the ground and then pop up. Both situations make it difficult to get controlled distance accurately and consistently.
All putts slide before true roll begins, the amount of slide can be affected by the loft of the putter, putting stoke and length of putt. The optimum amount of slide is 10% of the overall distance of the putt, in tests it has thus far proven impossible to achieve less than 10% slide. Controlling the amount of slide makes it easier to control the speed of a putt.
As you can now see, having the correct loft in your putter makes it easier to control distance in your putting and perhaps make more putts or reduce 3 putts.
