First, you want to start with the base putter itself, and find a favorable combination of looks, technology and price. In other words, you want to love your putter, and you don’t need to go broke over it. Ideally, it will also offer a technology that is tailored to your circumstances. For example, if alignment is a persistent issue, then you may want to lean toward a putter with strong alignment features.
Next, you want to make sure that your putter is fit to your physique and stroke, just as the professionals do. You’ll find a number of putter fitting tips here on PutterZone.com, and for the full scoop on fitting, check out our putter fitting book Putter Perfection.
