CHOOSING THE RIGHT PUTTER
Choosing a putter that is right for your game can be tricky. Golfers of all levels will want to make sure they choose a putter that gives them confidence at address and makes putting feel as natural as possible. For the club we use the most, statistics show that most golfers have never been professionally fitted for a putter. It’s time to level up on the green with a professionally fitted PXG putter, optimized for your unique stroke.
So, how can you find a putter that is going to help you sink those crucial four-footers? Here are some tips that will help you find that perfect match:
PUTTER HEAD TYPE
The first thing you need to do is figure out which type of putter will work best for your game. Blade and mallet putters are the two most common putter styles. How do I know which one fits my game?
Mallet putters generally feature a large clubhead profile for added stability and forgiveness. Blade-style putters present a more straightforward design often favored by golf purists and lower handicap golfers. Read on below to see the various styles of mallet and blade putters available from PXG.
Spine angle and hand position in a putting stroke are heavily influenced by the length of the putter. A proper putter shaft length will fit comfortably in the hands at setup and allow for a natural and free flowing putting stroke. PXG’s standard putter length is 34”.
PXG’s new performance putter grips were designed to meet a variety of preferences and styles to give golfers the edge they need on the green.
Made by stitching a polyurethane wrap around an injection molded EVA foam core, these grips are lightweight, allowing us to create a variety of shapes and sizes. The polyurethane wrap also has an “X” pattern for improved texture and feel.
When it comes to putting, every player has their own grip preferences. Let’s help you find your perfect partner and take a closer look at the new PXG grip line up!
LOFT & LIE
Why do loft and lie matter when it comes to a putter set up? Both of these elements impact launch angle and roll characteristics. To learn more, take a look at our engineer designed Battle Ready fitting tool, complete with handy videos to provide a visual walk through on these important elements.
PXG’s 0211 Putters have fixed hosel options that vary per head type. Battle Ready II Putters are available to customize with five hosel options.
- Plumber’s Neck – for players who slightly rotate the clubhead
- Heel Shafted – for players who over rotate the clubhead
- Double Bend – for players who tend to push the ball
- Armlock – for players who desire greater control and stability with their putting stroke
- Center Shafted – for players who tend to push the ball
WEIGHT & BALANCE
Battle Ready II Putters come standard with a stock head weight that’s dependent upon the model and hosel you choose. By adding a PXG Weight Kit to your order, you may adjust the head weight of your putter down by at least -15g or up by at least +20g.
0211 Putters have been pre-optimized for weight and balance by our PXG Engineers.
PXG putters are designed with a player’s specific game in mind. Because PXG clubs are custom-built, every club is different and can be tailored to your golfing abilities. Now that you know what to look out for – let us introduce you to our lineup of milled and cast putters to help you find your perfect match.
BATTLE READY II Versus 0211 PUTTERS
Battle Ready II Putters are crafted from aerospace-grade aluminum and high-density tungsten. Unique to the Battle Ready lineup, PXG Engineers introduced high-density tungsten inserts. The inserts are strategically positioned in every putter to enhance stability and boost MOI.
Our 0211 lineup includes five putters: V-42, Bayonet, Hellcat, Clydesdale, and Lightning. Each 0211 Putter features PXG’s bold Runway Reticle™ alignment aid and patented Pyramid Face Pattern technology for exceptional accuracy and consistency with every putt, as well as an outstanding sound and feel.
As our flagship option, Battle Ready Putters are fully optimized and packed with patented technology and premium materials. 0211 Putters come with three non-interchangeable hosel types and a price tag that will bring a smile to your face.
PXG putters are available to both left- and right-handed golfers.
