Putter Help

Postby JimHalpert » Fri May 24, 2013 10:22 pm

I am a relatively new player and have only been playing for two months. About a month ago, I purchased my own discs. I am happy with my drivers/mid ranges, but am having difficulty finding a good putter. What are some of the better putters out there that could help me lower my scores?

Pick a putter that is respectable and stable in flight. Buy 5 copies. Stick with that putter. Putting is a mindset not purely a manipulation of a disc. Force yourself to love that putter. I just returned to playing disc golf and was inconsistent I started switching discs and a good player told me the same thing. It will improve when yor mindset is about the puttin not the putter. I am sticking to a s voodoo.

Yup. For putting, the main thing a putter has to do is feel nice in your hands. Inside the circle everything flies almost the same, it's mainly about trusting yourself and the disc you're using than it is about aerodynamics.

For driving with a putter though, there you will find huge differences between different ones.

Thank you. Taking these into consideration I think I'll get a soft putter (I'm thinking a Soft Magnet) and just start practicing. This whole Mark Ellis Confidence program sounds good so I'm going to try that.

Gateway makes great putters.. I recommend a super soft Wizard. The Wizard is great in the wind and has a reliable minimal fade at the end.
Never leave a birdie putt short.
