Does this make sense - putter

Recommended Posts

So I was at GG and they had a great looking (like new) odyssey putter going for 129. I loved playing with it there the only problem is it's too short so if I bought it I'd have to have them reshaft it. I checked the price of a brand new identical model and it's 200. Not sure what the cost would be to get the putter to where I need it to be but I assume it's getting up there in price. Would you do this?

How much longer do you need to make it? If it's only an inch or two two you could have a shaft extension put in and have it regripped. That shouldn't cost you more than $15 plus the price of the grip.

^ This. Was going to say that myself. Good thing I didn't skim!

2" is the difference I'm looking for

For putters, 2” extension is no big deal at all. In fact, I'll add to what these other fellows said, if you have an old club with a steel shaft or broken steel shaft, you can use it to extend a putter. It will save you having to order an extension, and it's very easy to do.

 

Never pass on a great putter if it's too short!

It will make the swing weight higher if you add length. I've shortened a couple of putters and added weight to the head to get the feel I wanted. It's a bit harder to remove weight if you need to.

Tony, they'll do it for you right there at GG. If I remember correctly I think it's like 7.99 to lengthen a club, only thing is that they'll also have to regrip, which will have its cost as well unless you go that at home on your own.

Thanks. I'm convinced I'm going to do it provided that putter is still there.
