Elite golfers rarely get attached to their drivers. Every year, new models are released promising more distance, more forgiveness or both. Players on the PGA Tour and the LPGA tour want their driver to look good and to sound good, but at the end of the day if the launch monitor data is better than an old club, the new driver is going in the bag.
Putters, on the other hand, are a different story. Golfers develop a relationship with their putter. New technologies and features can be great great, but how it looks in the address position and how it sounds at impact are critical. If a putter doesn’t look good or sound good to a player, it’s probably not going in the bag.
Manufacturers know this, of course, so once they find success with a shape and a technology, they tend to make subtle refinements to those putters instead of massive changes. With that in mind, several of the new putters listed below may look familiar. Others have features that you may have seen before. All of them, however, are upgrades to the originals. With the help of a good custom fitter, they might help you improve your performance on the greens and lower your scores.
