The Best New Putters for 2016
Putters don't always get the glory of new drivers or irons, but new putter design and technology is every bit as advanced. Buying a new high MOI putter has a better chance of lowering your score, too!
For something as seemingly simple as a putter, it seems like it would be hard to come up with new designs that keep improving the putting experience. But putter designers keep delivering. Below you will find a list of some of the new putter models for 2016 as well as some time-tested putter models from previous years. Use this guide to narrow your search for the putter that will help you most. Putters are the most individual club in the game of golf, and everyone has their own favorite style and feel. Be sure to try out several different models. Sometimes you may not like the initial look of a putter, but after trying it out, you know it's the one.
Putters generally fall into two categories: blade and mallet. Within each category, however, is a wide variation of designs. Blade putters tend to be more uniform in looks although there are a few exotic designs like the Odyssey White Hot XG Marxman blade putter.
Mallet putters come in all shapes and sizes, from the plain vanilla half-oval midsize-mallet design like the Odyssey White Hot XG 330 putter to the ultra-modern techno designs like the Itsy Bitsy Spider putter or the Monza Spider putter from TaylorMade, or the Odyssey White Hot XG 2-Ball F7 putter.
Why so many differnt putter designs? Well, different strokes... And there are a lot of different folks out there playing golf. Golfers who putt by feel tend to prefer the blade style putters. Golfers who concentrate on form and technique, especially those who use a mechanical, pendulum-like putting stroke tend to prefer mallet putters. Golfers who have trouble lining up short putts will benefit from bigger putters with alignment aids, while those golfers who tend to decelerate the putter at impact will appreciate the heavier mallet style putters that make it easy to accelerate through the putting stroke, even on short putts.
