Putter fitting for LH Player


Recommended Posts

I live in Birmingham, AL, and am wanting to get fitted for a putter. The problem all lefties have is finding a place that has ample selection so you can test a good variety of putters. Has anyone gone to anyplace around here and enjoyed the process? What stores would you suggest? Thanks.

Welcome to golf as a lefty. I haven't found a big selection at any big box store. On the other hand I haven't gone to an independent fitter for putting.

I have tried 2 different putter fittings, both were somewhat disappointing as a leftie. The first one I did was at Club Champion. They had about 10 putters for lefties. The second was at a True Spec and they only had 6 putters for lefties. Both times I learned a bit about my stroke, but didn't buy any putters they had there. CC used SAM puttlab and True Spec used a combo of CAPTO and Trackman. Would love to find a place that actually has decent options for lefties.

I almost feel as the only way to get a decent selection is to go to a manufacturers complex like Scotty Cameron in San Diego and have them custom fit you just to be able to get all their options, or whichever brand you prefer, but that jumps the price considerably, I know for Cameron it's like $1500.

Until club manufacturers setup their putter demos like PXG (easy to change out grip, shaft hosel and head shape), us lefties will be limited on trying out putters in a shop. It's very frustrating, but PGA SS has about the best selection I've seen. Golfsmith used to be the best towards lefties, then Golf Galaxy took over and greatly reduced the LH inventory in stores. 

What type of putter did your fitting suggest? 

  • :ping-small: G410 LST 10.5* w/ VA Composites Nemesys 65 X tipped 1/2" 
  • :ping-small: G425 LST 3W 14.5* w/ Ping Tour 75X
  • :srixon-small: ZX Utility 18* w/ Project X 6.5
  • :callaway-small: X Forged 21* w/ Tour Issue Dynamic Gold S400
  • :taylormade-small: 2020 P770 5-PW w/ Tour Issue Dynamic Gold X100
  • :ping-small: Glide 3.0 54* & 58* w/ Dynamic Gold S400
  • :ping-small: Sigma 2 Arna - 35.25"...coming soon: Evnroll ER5B
  •  Pro V1x Left Dash
  • I'm left-handed so I don't go broke buying all new clubs every week.

My first one at CC a couple years ago recommended a mallot with a small amount of toe hang. At true spec this year he recommended a blade with a plumbers neck with about 45* toe hang. The mallot i brought into true spec had me aimed 1.8* left. The straight edges on the blade got me to .7. I found that really interesting. The fitter said a mallot with a rounded back helps lefties aim left, the blade with straight edges helps lefties aim right. I like the look of the wide blade like the Scotty square back so I set out on a mission to find a wide blade with a plumbers neck. Turns out that is really difficult to find for lefties. The only one I found was the PXG closer so I ordered it and it should be here soon. 

 

I did look into PXG fittings with their mobile fitting van, but there weren't any near me in the near future. They were priced right at $50 though. I didn't want to wait for a fitting with them since their price discount ends at the end of June.
