Putter counterbalancing: is it for you?
The most recent trend in putter design is counterbalancing. This basically means making the grip end heavier. But what's the point of it, and could you benefit?
The putting stroke basically asks you to move a light object slowly, and there are plenty of golfers who have trouble controlling that. For these players, the stroke can feel more solid when they feel a little more weight in their hands. For example, you might find it easier to throw a golf ball into a bin 8ft away than you would a table-tennis ball.
So counterbalancing is essentially aimed at people who feel their hands can get busy during the stroke, and it's no coincidence it's come along in the wake of the anchoring ban. Many golfers report improvement with counterbalanced putters. So if you think it could work for you, sound us out; we can help with trial clubs and advice. Click here to contact us today.
