How to choose your golf putter match

With each year that passes, golf club technology is getting increasingly more advanced and sophisticated, and you can tell just by looking at the latest golf putters from TaylorMade.

The Spider GTX is a beautiful looking putter and is available in multiple colour options, including Silver, Red, and Ice Blue. These clubs look fantastic and feel amazing, but why should you consider getting yourself a new golf putter?

There’s never been a better time to be in the market for a new golf putter. There’s a whole range of choice available, from bladed putters through to mallets. The sooner you’re playing with a club appropriately build for your putter stroke, the sooner you’ll be sinking more putts and shooting lower scores!


What's in the TaylorMade golf putter range?

TaylorMade golf putters are phenomenal, and whatever your preference and style of play, they’ll have something just for you.

As we’ve mentioned, the Spider GTX putter looks fantastic and has a variation of colourways available. The club is not only visually striking, it feels solid and stable thanks to the stainless steel backbar. This also gives the putter a deep centre of gravity, which helps the putter resist twisting on impact.

The Spider GTX showcases TaylorMade’s True Path feature (the white and black contrast on the top), which offers optically engineered alignment aids to help you line-up better at address. The urethane insert on the face helps give the ball a pleasing and consistent roll.

A cousin of the GTX, the GT Max is a huge contender if you’re after a golf putter that has tons of customization. This club has two 40g tungsten weights on the sole that can be locked into one of three positions, influencing the centre of gravity, the toe hang, and the face rotation.

This mallet putter has a hollowed-out core that will give your strokes tons of stability, and the PureRoll insert improves topspin across the face so you get a smooth and constant roll.


When did you last change your golf putter?

If you’re playing a par 4 as it’s meant to be played, half of your shots are going to be taken using a putter (unless you should manage to drain your first putt for a brilliant birdie).

If you extend that to the entire round, just about 50% of the time when you’re making contact with the ball, it’s with a putter. We all love getting the driver out and seeing how far we can hit the ball down the fairway, but given that fact, you could argue that the putter is the most important club in the bag.

Would you agree?

While it’s important to take care of all of your clubs, it can be easy to overlook the wear and tear that your putter has been through. Unlike a driver or wedge, with a putter you’re not hitting the ball with a fast speed or digging through the ground, so there might not be so many dents and chips in your trusty putter.


When we conducted a survey, we found that 44% of those that answered were using a putter over 5 years old

If it’s been a good few years since you’ve changed your putter, you may be playing with a club that’s no longer suitable for you.

It’s not something we’re aware of day-by-day, but your putting stroke and way you approach the ball changes over time. The more you play golf, the more you’ll get used to playing with your own unique steady rhythm. You’ll have developed a certain stroke and feel, and certain clubs that are engineered to accentuate that style of play will help you get the most control over your putting.

If you want to score low, you’ve got to be playing with equipment appropriate for you, which is why you’ll benefit from undergoing a putter fitting to find out what kind of club suits you the best.


Ever had a golf putter MOT?


You might think that finding the perfect putter for you is as simple as walking into the pro shop, finding one you like the look of, and taking a few putts with it to see how it feels. But there’s a lot more to it than that.

To find the best club for you, we’ll analyze your natural tendencies on the green, looking at your current set up and how you hit the ball. Once we know what your putting stroke looks like and the areas of where you can work on bettering your performance, we’ll be able to recommend you the kind of club that’s most appropriate for you.

To put things in perspective, reliable transportation can be one of the most important factors of your daily living, so you regularly get an MOT for your car when it’s due. The golf putter is one of the most important clubs in your bag for your game, so why not give yourself the peace of mind that your flatstick is up to scratch? A putter MOT will potentially knock scores off your game!
