We’ve ticked off Putter balance; good looks; Putter length; and now we’re going to evaluate ‘swing weight’
as we help you find the perfect partner for the putting green.
Your Putter is your precision tool. If the
swing weight is too low it makes it more
difficult to control longer Putts.

If the swing weight’s too high
you lose control.

There’s a tend to shortening the
length of the putter and /
or using a heavier grip.
Both of those changes to
an existing putter,
will lower swing weight.
The final check:
tuning your stroke and
the putter loft to create
the perfect roll.
The first three ‘dating steps’ to find the right putting partner were focused on helping you square the face
down the target line at impact. Your perfect swing weight will help you hit much better first Putts,
and ensure your short pressure Putts are easier to handle.

You may have played golf for health and well-being, social, and recreational reasons for 20+ years.
You have had some coaching in the beginning, but since then you’ve only had “fix” lessons. I
f you’re shooting in the low 90’s or high 80’s, you have proven athletic ability.
How good could you be?
This isn’t about pumping iron and becoming the young stud.
It’s about maximising the potential of technique and timing. Get that right and:
If that’s a golf experience that appeals to you, then please don’t wait.
Start the journey to hitting even better golf shots.

Derek and Sheena
