How would you guys go about finding a new putter? Given that I can't really go to a fitting or try one for 1 or 2 weeks (At least not that I know of). What do you think the best way to go about it?

Currently I game the White Hot Odyssey OG 7s. It's a decent putter on slower greens for me but when I get on faster greens I just find it so hard to judge the pace. I actually feel like I'm decent with these types of feels in general so I'm quite surprised about this.

The problem I have with the putter it's for me a little to inconsistent of how it comes off the face. Sometimes it will just jump off the putter and having felt like I've not even touched it just flies by the hole. Then other times just feels like it comes off dead. With the insert being so soft I just find it hard to get anything from it as far as feedback wise but could also be the mass behind the putter or both.

I was actually messing about the other day and purposely hitting the ball out the toe of the putter obviously not ideal but I felt I could judge it a bit better and gave me a little bit more feedback.


Maybe if I can get some sort of shortlist I can go to a local American golf or pro shop and see if they have any of the putters in stock to try.

I don't really have any good suggestions but I'd start with that. Not sure how well stocked your golf shops are, here the large shops will have space for putting and a large selection of putters to try - hundreds in the larger stores.

I'm sure there is science behind putter optimization but I prefer to believe that all putters are cursed and it's their fault I'm lousy.

I used the iPing-app - it needs a cradle-thingy to fit your mobile to your putter and then it will measure stuff and give you recommendations for what putter you should get.

I got a Ping Anser 6 based on its recommendation over 10 years ago, love it and have never considered switching since.

I'm not sure just how accurate it is and there may be some placebo involved, but nothing wrong with placebo if it helps

I have a couple of places I can go to that have decent stock but will give it a while before I go as I want to have my confidence up a bit with the putter.
