PutterZone.com is excited to announce the 2011 PutterZone.com Power Picks, featuring our selections for the best putters of the year as we turn the corner toward 2011.
Over the past year, PutterZone.com has tested and reviewed numerous putters. Our annual Power Picks recognize what we consider the “best of the best” of the putters we have reviewed, based on the factors of performance, craftsmanship, technology, innovation and aesthetics.
We begin today with our Best Putters category, signifying our three favorite putters of the year, along with three honorable mentions. We will continue later this week with our Best Buy putters of the year, signifying those putters that offer the most bang for your putting buck.

Nike Method Putters ($250)
Before it was officially released earlier this year, the Nike Method putter made a serious splash by notching two major victories in 2009. Then it made an even bigger splash in 2010, earning its way into the bag of Tiger Woods, who hadn’t switched putters in more than a decade. The hype surrounding the Nike Method putters is warranted, as they combine compelling technology with excellent feel. Read the PutterZone.com review.
Piretti Cottonwood II ($250)
The Piretti Cottonwood II earns high marks for elegantly riffing on the Anser style with a heavier head weight, wider flange and lower loft. This is a putter with a definite point of view, and it will appeal to blade enthusiasts who seek the added confidence of a heavier head and heftier profile. You’d also be hard pressed to find a more gorgeous putter for the price. Read the PutterZone.com review.
Bettinardi BB Putters ($265)
