Comfort is the biggest factor when selecting a putter. Some golfers like a thin-blade putter, while others are more comfortable with a larger mallet head. Further, a perimeter-weighted putter makes some golfers feel secure. Generally speaking, a putter should fit your height. A taller golfer uses a long putter, and smaller golfers want a shorter one. In short, buying a putter is a tough decision with so many options and styles. You can select from face-balanced putters to toe-balanced putters, as well as blade putters and mallet putters. Make sure that the putter you’re using fits your height. You want to be comfortable when putting. So, get the right putter that can improve your putting and scores!

Whether you are looking for a men’s putter, women’s putter, or junior putter to improve your putting on the green, most importantly, GDN has you covered! They’ve got the right putter for every price range, length, and style of play, including a wide variety of left-handed putters. Also, you can choose from traditional blades, heel-toe club heads, or a large mallet club head. Browse GDN’s large selection of putters to find the best fit for you.

Heel-Toe vs. Mallet Type Putters

Heel and Toe Weighted Putters – The Ping Anser putters of the 1960s – popularized the heel and toe weighted (or “perimeter-weighted”) style of putter design. So-called because they have their weight concentrated in the heel and toe areas, these putters have the largest, sweet spots of any putter (the sweet spot is the area where true hits can be achieved).

The weight at the heel and the toe is greater than that in the middle of the putter head. This heel-toe weight distribution also works to stabilize the putter’s head-on contact with the ball and is more forgiving of mishits.

At the forefront of the mallet’s benefits is stability. It’s the basis for the club’s massive structure, and why the head is heavier than a blade. This is done to redistribute mass to build the flat stick’s moment of inertia. Important in the club’s fight against torque, which moves the face during the stroke and correlates to more missed, off-center putts. For those who struggle to keep the club on the right swing path, the extra weight lessens the odds of inconsistency.

But while added mass is the primary value a mallet brings to the table, it’s far from the only virtue.

The same impact-softening materials used on blades are often found in their club’s counterparts. Also, the same goes for milled patterns and inserts on the face. The long-held stigma is that mallets compromise feel and sound in the pursuit of forgiveness. That is no longer the case.

The Pros and Cons of Blade vs. Mallet Putters

Blade Putters

  • Let you develop a more sound putting stroke
  • Traditional look
  • More feedback on off-center hits
  • Better MOI
  • Traditional feel
  • More options for balance and shaft positioning
  • Less forgiving

Mallet Putters

  • More forgiving of a less sound putting stroke
  • Generally more expensive
  • Can look weird
  • More centered weight to promote a straight back through the swing
  • Lower MOI
  • Feel awkward to some golfers
  • Fewer options for design and shaft position
  • More forgiving

Face Inserts

This has become extremely popular and helps with the feel and consistency of the putter. In addition, the hardness or softness of the putter is largely a personal preference.

Shaft And Hosel, These Are Your Options:

  • The hosel and shaft positioning is usually a personal preference.
  • A heel-shafted putter connects to the putter, at the heel, as the name suggests.
  • Also, the center shafted putter connects in the middle of the putter head.

The most common design is an offset hosel putter. Consequently, this appeals to many golfers as it keeps the hands forward when addressing the ball and allows the face to be squared up easily.

Top-Rated Golf Putters – Choosing A New Putter

You can choose from hundreds of putters of various lengths. You can pick between standard putters, belly putters, and counterbalance putters. Get a club head that fits your game. In addition, select a traditional blade for great feedback, a heel-toe club head with added perimeter weighting to help boost MOI, or a large mallet club head for maximum forgiveness. Due to the rules change involving the use of belly putters, most golf stores only have a limited number of such putters in their inventory. Further, the Royal Ancient and United States Golf Associations ruled that the ban on anchored strokes using a belly putter came into effect on January 1, 2016. The new Rule is 14-1b.

You can select from a different face and insert options. Metal putters are common, durable, and offer a high level of control. Also, consider putters that allow for inserts to improve feel and create a smoother roll. Inserts vary in color, firmness, and material. Therefore, personalize your putter so it matches your game.

Golf Tip: For a blend of feel and mechanical precision, it might be best to select a more conventional putter.

What to Look for in aTop-Rated Putter

If you like the stability and extra weight of a long putter, consider a counterbalance putter. Crafted with extra weight in the grip area and club head, counterbalance putters add stability and smoothness. Further, choose a putter with the right balance and style for your putting stroke.

It is beneficial to know your putting stroke when purchasing a new putter

If you lay the putter shaft in your hand with the shaft parallel to the ground and the face facing the sky, you have a face-balanced putter. Also, face-balanced putters suit golfers who tend to have straight strokes. These strokes go back and through and are also known as barn door swings.

If the toe is hanging toward the ground, you have a toe-balanced putter. A toe-balanced putter benefits you if you have an arc stroke.

  1. Putting is something that I probably do a lot better than driving. I am used to a heel and toe putter, never tried a mallet putter before. Since I am sort of a beginner and have no idea what my putter stroke is, I can just buy a whole set of clubs and work on my game before getting a little more specific, right?

    • Yes, you are correct. I would get a whole new set with a bag to replace your lost set of clubs. I prefer the heel/toe putter over the mallet style. It is lighter and has a large sweet spot which is also good for novices. The mallet putter takes a while to get used to it. After you have purchased your new set and are playing awhile, I would invest in a top of the line driver and a good quality putter. These will help to improve your game and will last a long time. You will use these clubs the most, practically every hole. THEY ARE EXPENSIVE BUT WORTH THE INVESTMENT! GOOD EQUIPMENT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Also, there are some good quality complete sets out there, shop around for the best buy! WGS has some good deals!

  2. We have a golf club quite close to where we live and I admire the golfers on the range every time I pass by.
    I’d love to take up golf as a pastime but I’m unsure where to begin and what equipment I will need. There isn’t a golf shop near to where I live so finding your website was a gem.
    I’m feeling quite overwhelmed with all the different types of putters and concerned that I will end up buying the wrong one.
    What would you recommend for a beginner?


    • Jacqueline, Thank you for your comments. If you just need a putter, I would recommend starting you out with the Wilson women’s Harmonized putter for $39.99. If you need a complete set of golf clubs with cart bag – the Tour Edge Lady Reaction 3 for $299.99. The complete set includes a putter.
