Putter length/extensions


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

About a year ago I had a thought being a guy who is taller at 6'3”. “ A size 30 length pant wouldn't fit me so why should the standard putter length” Since then I found a length that felt comfortable and where I could still center my eyes over the ball and cut a 2.25 length extension. This was honestly the best thing I've ever done with my putting game and I have improved a lot since then. Anyone else have thoughts on this? The biggest reason for doing it was I felt so uncomfortable bending over and down to a putter, felt so much more natural to make it a bit longer.

It's now at 37.25” . I played around with the length of the extension until I picked a length that felt comfortable with. Then used a ball on a mirror to make sure I was still looking directly down at the ball, keeping eyes centred on the line. I guess ping now was adjustable length drivers as “MyGolfSpy recently did an strong arc fitting. It was very interesting. Definitely created more confidence for me as well

I think it comes down to your stance though. Some guys are taller and really crouch down a la Nicklaus while others stand pretty tall and are comfortable that way
