Matching the loft of your putter to your technique is critical in becoming a consistent putter and therefore seeing more putts drop. Having the incorrect loft will negatively impact many factors such as launch off the putter face, spin imparted on the ball and overall roll on the green.
Loft is affected by your specific putting stroke, ball position, and putter. It is crucial to match these factors to create the ideal loft at impact for you to hole more putts more often.
Player with incorrect putter loft
If the ball launches too high with too much spin it causes the ball to bounce. Likewise, if the ball launches too low it causes the ball to dig into the ground and hop. Both of these impacts negatively on distance control and accuracy (3-putts and shorter misses).
Player fitted for correct putter loft
You’ll create a smooth repeatable roll off the clubface, with a true roll found early. You’ll increase your chance of making putts. Your distance control will improve. Fewer putts per round. That impacts your scorecard.
