Belly Putter - Arm Lock Putter conversion

Recommended Posts

Good morning, 

Has anyone converted a belly putter into an arm lock putter? 

Thoughts? I was messing around with an old belly putter after watching Webb Simpson make everything. Feels pretty good! Just need to add loft to the putter.

I have heard good things coming from armlockgolf.com... just replacing the grip with their conversion grip is all that is necessary to make the switch from belly putter.  They might be worth a look.

The grip is supposed to add 2 to 3 degrees of loft... arm-lockgolf.com

I did that once with a Bobby Grace long putter I use to have.

Added some loft as others indicated but my problem was the lie angle of the putter changed a little and I had to adjust my stance to compensate.

Liked the arm lock for say less than 15 ft putts, but I could not get my speed right on longer putts so I switched putters.

Reflecting back I should have gotten the lie angle/ lofts (fitted/adjusted) in a little better and I might have liked that putter/putting style.

Just did this for a member last week.  The biggest issue when converting a belly putter to an arm lock is going to be the loft of the putter.  Arm lock putters can have a ball park loft of 6 degrees, give or take.  A belly putter most likely will have less.  @Nic mentioned the armlock grip which does add loft, but as @03trdblackmentioned, adds a lot of weight.  Chances are if you use the armlock specific grip you'll want to add lead tape to the head.  If you have access to a mitchell machine adding loft shouldnt be a problem and converting a belly putter to an armlock isn't outrageous at all, just be prepared to make tweaks to weight and loft, and be patient.
