Toe Hang Blade Putter Advice


Recommended Posts


What you are getting into is how a person manipulates a putter. It may be caused by feel and how the person reacts to the putter. That is why you should be fit for a putter based on results and. It what the machine spits out. If a
Player reacts to the putter that is in their hands and the computer provides a result then the player tries that putter they may get yet another result due to how the player reacts to the new putter.

If the CoG for a putter causes it to be toe down, when the putter moves forward the head of the putter will lag behind. As the stroke continues it will pick up momentum and overtake the heel and close.

From what I have learned toe hang isn’t a good indicator for fit since the same toe hang could have different rates of rotation based on head weight.

Due to all the design options with a putter you actually have to
Putt with it to see how you respond. You can’t just say I need a putter with X degrees of toe hang.

Exactly what I found going from a Scotty Newport to the Evnroll ER2B. Technically the Scotty should have a tow hang more appropriate for me but I roll the Evnroll straighter.

I also noticed that due to the different hosel/shaft configurations the Evnroll naturally sits a little closer to me at the same length and lie, so I think that makes it easier for me to aim.

A putter fitting really is one of the best things you can do for your game.

That's really weird! I used to miss putts to the right ( I'm a lefty ) and I switched to a 60 degree toe hang and it also cured my miss. Golf is stupid.😀

You need to change your focus from changing putters to understanding the putting stroke.  Dive in to how it works and how the stroke works in tandem with the putter.   From there you can choose a sing

Multiple options. Most people start with toe hang but that isn’t always a good fix unless all the other design features remain the same. You could go with less toe hang. Face balanced may be too

Gone thru the whole thread and am a bit confused. My boy (freshman) took up golf (last year) and is been missing putts to the right. He uses my ghost putter which is mid level toe hanged. His putting shape is arc  (again not too deep) but his putter face is slightly open at impact. Was thinking of picking up a face balanced spider for him, as it would close faster (than toe hanged)  and have the face square at impact. Does that sound right....?

(Am thinking of getting him fitted but then again as he is young ( learning and experimenting), I think it will be easy for him to remodel his swing as needed...)

Toe Hang really isn't that important;  it is the result of getting everything else right....offset, hosel position, weight, CoG, etc.    If he is missing right,  yes, he needs  to get the face closed more.   When making the putting stroke he will react to the putter and it should just move through stroke.   People also have a path bias to the left or to the right.   That isn't a bad thing and it is better than a zero'd out stroke.    Also how does he power the stroke?   If he uses his right arm (like tiger) he can just try and shut the face on the through stroke.   

Does he set up closed with his shoulders;  putter often follows shoulder line. 

The best idea is to try different putters and test them by evaluating startline.  If he is missing right,  go lighter, maybe smaller diameter grip, shaft intersecting the topline closer to the center (draw a line down the shaft and through the head closer to heel will provide more toe hang Closer to center is more face balanced), maybe a full offset putter.       Can he roll the ball through a gate using different stroke lengths that has less than 1* of error consistently (ideally you want to get down to about 0.5* of error).  As you change putter configurations, you should see that the miss will shift. left and right   Once he is doing that consistently, that is the putter that he should use.

It could be his setup more than the putter? 

It could be a flinch, take away, or stroke issue?

If it is a breaking putt then it could be a misread?

The putter is only a tool in the puzzle that is golf. 

Golf is simple - people are complicated.

This is a common misnomer.  Face balanced putters close FASTER than putters with toe hang.  

Ultimately it comes down to how the golfer reacts to the feelings the putter gives, but the science of toe hang (more weight in the toe) means closing down the rate of rotation.  Face balanced putters rotate closed faster.

Is there such thing as heel weighted putters with more weight in the heel. The same way move weight in the heel of a driver produces a draw bias.

Essentially yes there are toe up putters. Edel makes them and Odyssey did at one time. I am sure there are more but I was not a fan when I tried them. Sold the Odyssey and think I still have the Edel.
