My first Putter Fitting, Updated 1 month later

Recommended Posts

Just had one wednesday and what an experience it was, learned a lot about my stroke that made sense and figured out I don't caulk as much as putting as I think I do, now waiting for some more options to come in before I pull the trigger, I agree with you the fitting makes the putter even better

So is it really worth $125 for a putter fitting? Sounds like it. I may have to get one after all.

Depends on the person. The club champion session that g-off is at the new club champion in Virginia Beach so it is 33% off.

If you are the kind of player that wants to learn about the.details of your putting stroke then they are worth the cost.

@Jollygreensin my mind well worth it, I was really amazed to learn the things about my stroke and actually swinging a putter that had been adjusted to fit and seeing the difference was truly educational.

Great writeup! I've never had a putter fitting, but I visited the new 2nd Swing that opened up in Columbia MD, and was tempted to look at new putters, which come with a free fitting.

After hearing all the benefits of getting a putter fitting, I decided to give it a try. I was pretty anxious and honestly quite nervous when they were setting up the SAM put lab equipment. I really thought they would say I was too inconsistent and just tell me go with whatever.  I do not have the greatest stroke, or so I thought going into the fitting. I like the look and feel of bladed style putters, but I promised myself to refrain from feelings, and stay open minded and go with the best putter for me. 

 

I am glad you put those thoughts to the side, I believe this type of thought is a big misconception on fitting in general.

Good write up and results so far.

It would depend on your financial situation, but I can say I am really seeing strokes off my game just by getting a putter that was suited for my stroke.  For me it was worth it.

I’m glad to hear that the putter fitting is working out! Good write up. That’s the only club I haven’t been fitted for (yet)

A putter fitting is a must after going through one at PXG. Wow! Fit into a setup that I was making everything. Gen 2 Gunboat will be on its way soon.

Much the same as results above.  I went through a putter fitting at PING HQ and it was quite an amazing experience.  

I verified I had a medium arc, really on the line from slight to strong, but shaded toward strong.  

Went with the Sigma Tyne 4 at 35" with 1* of loft added.   

The PING system showed my putting hamdxiao  at the level of a 2.4.  Which considering I'm 17.6 overall shows what the rest of my game is like currently.  Ha 

It is well worth the time and any cost.

Has anyone had any experience comparing a putter fitting to the results they got from using the Ping Cradle?

I had a putter fitting a few weeks ago. New putter is scheduled to arrive today and I plan on attaching my wife's phone to and see what I get.

nice write up!  I had similar feelings from my fitting.  Been rolling the ball much closer to the hole from all over the green.  had a 1.7 PPG average on my last round out!

1.7 is goals for me, glad to hear your fitting is paying off as well.

Having my putter fit was the most important thing I ever did for my golf game.  I dropped my handicap by 4.  I thought I was a decent putter prior to the fitting too!  It sounds like you are your way to a similar result.

I have. Cradle doesn't give you as much info as SAM or Quintic. Generally my results were validated using Ping app after having done 3 putter fits now.

 

My issue is I generally putt much better in a fitting than I do on course. I was fit into a Newport style head but I also got told if I wanted a mallet, what I should look for. I am currently looking at getting back in to a mallet for the added forgiveness.

It is possible, you just have to understand how the numbers are represented in the various systems.

Putter fitting vs Putting lesson.....I wonder if a few lessons for the same price would shave more than .2 strokes off your game.... with an inconsistent stroke as you mentioned, I wonder if a few lessons would make even a bigger impact.
