I have been using a really old Shear-Line Model N putter with that was given to me in 2012, along with a set of very used Wilson Staff clubs that actually fit me well, all as a free starter set from a friend who taught me the basics. Age 64 was a little late to start golf, but I learned the basics reasonably quickly with those junky clubs and was making good progress until I bought myself a new set of Taylormade irons, but kept the putter. Big mistake. I ended up selling them and got a complete set of used Ping i3 O size irons that do fit me, and the game is back on-track. Same putter, but now with a Super Stroke 3.0 grip, the best single change I've made in my equipment besides low compression balls. I'm now shopping for another putter, only because it's time for something prettier, but I will never get rid of the old Shear-Line.

Makes 100% sense!!

I currently play a Scotty Cameron Newport that I got 10 years ago, but have always been a good putter. The rest of my game, not so much. When I was first starting out, I picked up a decent set of Titleist irons, but ended up with a putter that I purchased from a sports chain store for like $24.99 and that was my favorite putter. It was so cheap, that after a year, it just started bending at the neck but I just kept bending it back and it worked. At one point, it was so crooked that people would wonder how I putted with it. LOL. Getting a nice putter doesn't necessarily make you a better putter. But the more expensive putters have a more balanced feel and nice soft feel at impact. So to improve your putting game, its best to just practice. If you become a good putter, a more expensive one can enhance it.

Richard McCann says:

Every stroke has equal value. Two putts per hole, depending on how good you are, it should be approx 50% of total score.

It's worth spending the money 💰 on a product which is fit for purpose.

One thing that does annoy me with putters, is that they come pregripped, you should be able to have a style of grip that suits you.

Flynn Roelink says:

I believe it depends on your course, personal preferences and putting style.

luke reuter says:

great …very well said mark … so true …

Colorado_koolaid says:

I'd agree that you don't have to have the most expensive putter but all in all the putter is used the most on the course so why not invest in something that feels and looks good to you

mark_merica says:

i use a one from the thrift store, the grip i put on (champ c1) was more expensive than the putter haha

ConRon says:

I completely agree, I putt just fine with a $50 putter but I feel like subconsciously I feel better with a "premium" putter, so I'm willing to pay a little extra for that feeling.

Steve Barnhurst says:

Love this video – "the ball doesn't know what you paid for your putter" brilliant quote!! I believe putting is mainly if not all about confidence so whatever gives you that irrespective of cost.

Matthew De Ridder says:

Why is it that all, if not most, of these comments are about how more expensive putters don't matter? then there's the comment that it's the most overrated piece of equipment? a few comments about grips, etc. have any of you guys been custom fit for a putter? how many of you know what an arc is? how about the difference in the way the face is balanced to help different arcs? ultimately, no. an expensive putter will not hole more putts because of some crazy technology, but the more expensive brands of putters have a style for every stroke. for those of you who haven't ever been fit, do yourself justice and go get it done. you will be glad you did. then you will sink more putts.

Fred Grimley says:

This has to be the worst place to ask such a silly question. You might as well go up to a car salesman and ask "I just got my tax return, do you think I need a new car?"

I mean, just look at his shop… it's littered with advertising and brands. Does the person that sent the question honestly think this guy is gonna say "no, you really don't need an expensive putter, you first should work on your putting technique and then try to find a reasonable cost used putter"?

Get real people.

Rod Rich says:

"Your ball doesn't know how much the putter costs" lol, love it.

dizzychizzy says:

what a 2 year old question… fuck me!

Beta Vulgaris says:

Putters are the most overrated club in terms of equipment. It's not like a driver with loft or irons with weighting and forgiveness and different head sizings and shaft flex etc. It's essentially a flat-ish piece of metal. If you need a more expensive putter because your current one isn't holing enough, it just means you're shit at putting. Some mug will go spend 5 ton making SC rich though.

MrRp25 says:

Spend the money on some short game lessons and you should become a better putter without buying a new device.

Evan Erickson says:

In my opinion, the grip matters more than the putter. Invest in yourself and buy super stroke fat grips for all your putters and you will thank me.

Cody Magnusson says:

i would like to see a real world test with putters. i know if you deliver that head the same way the ball will go in the same place with say a robot. but when a person has certain tendencies does different putters and weight distribution or angle work better for some then others i would think so. would this be as important as the mental aspect of the feel and confidence with this putter i dont think so.
