Best Golf Putters For Beginners 2019!

“Drive for Show, Putt for dough”

For a lot of people, the putter is a pretty boring club that is easily forgotten. But looking at it more objectively it is probably the most important club in your entire bag. It may not be as hard to find a putter that is tailored just for you, but it doesn’t reduce the importance that you have a putter that you feel comfortable with.

If you do a bit of rounding off, you can estimate that between 40%-50% of the strokes in a given round is made by the putter. This fact alone should make every golfer read an article like this one and find a putter that is suitable for you. A stroke is still a stroke, a missed put from 2 feet is costing the same as a bad layup.

Let’s say you finish a round of golf in 100 strokes (on a 72-par course this is HCP 28). If you put half of these strokes you put 50 times around. If you would improve your putts by 20%, that is a reduce scored of 10 strokes. More than any club, we would imagine.

So, let’s get into it. Here is our list of 5 putters that you can start navigating through.

Best Golf Putters to Improve your Game 2019!

Taylor Made Spider Tour Red W/SL

Standard Grip: Taylor Made Grip black Spider

Handicap recommendation: All
Club attribute: Standard Putter

Pros:
Great look and sound. Consistent putts.

Cons:
Maybe a bit chunky but it compensates for the swing motion

Bottom line:

Taylormade is not a stranger on golf-putter lists and this is no exception. The Taylor Made Spider Tour is a great addition and a great putter for any golfer but its size does make it one of the preferred ones for beginners and intermediate golfers.

It has a precision line that provides confidence to the putting stroke and the swing motion more consistent. The Pure Roll-technology increases the topspin and a more consistent distance feel.

Taylor Made really succeeded in making a good-looking putter, as some players on the PGA-tour as a preferred choice are using this design. The heavy feel gives more consistent putting and it’s face-balanced with a 360g head weight.

  • Spider Arc geometry provides the high-MOI Spider design with better stability, improved alignment, and greater forward roll
  • Lightweight aluminum body combined with a heavy stainless steel ring for higher MOI to keep the face square to the path
  • Soft surface Pure Roll insert increase forward roll and distance control in a softer-feeling putter face
  • Arc structure combines with three sight lines to improve alignment and connect the putter head to the path
  • Face-balanced mallet with 360-gram head weight

Odyssey Red O-Works #7

Standard Grip: SuperStroke Mid Slim 2.0 – Odyssey

Handicap recommendation: All

Club attribute: Toe-heel weighted mallet putter

Pros:
Precision dots and soft feel & SuperStroke as standard grip!

Cons:
No apparent cons. Some may feel it’s pretty big.

Bottom line:

The O-Works #7 is a toe-heel weighted mallet putter with classic odyssey wings. Tour-inspired with a black finish and white precision lines.

All of the Odyssey O-works putters have a revolutionary Microhinge-technology with aids with a softer feel and puts the ball into motion straight away. What we really like about this is that the putter is delivered with a “Superstrokes Mid Slim 2.0” grip that really makes putting easier than slimmer grips.

The Microhinge technology contains a surface with small spikes forged in an elastomer. This creates a topspin which aids that the ball starts rolling instantly after impact which will give a better distance control, especially when putting uphill.

What we really like with the Odyssey putter is the precision dots that help you to visualize the ball path and gives you a more even stroke motion.

  • Really cool design
  • Has a great feel and even though it is tour inspired is a great fit for beginners
  • The precision dots really help with the stroke motion
  • Distance control is among the best in its class.
  • Comes with a SuperStroke Mid Slim Grip

Wilson Staff Infinite The Bean

Standard Shaft: Wilson Counter Balance Infinite
Handicap recommendation: All
Club attribute: Bargain and value for money

Pros:
Forgiving and great consistency. Great beginners putter and a great bargain!

Cons:
Feels a little less premium than others but still a great putter to add to your bag!

Bottom line:

Infinite The Bean! A great addition to this list of putters as it is also named after a landmark in Chicago (where Wilson origins).

This model is one of six classical club head shapes with exquisite details, all with a counterweight technology that gives a more controlled motion. The matt finish adds to reducing reflexes and enhances the precision line for increased accuracy.

Double milled clubface gives a more consistent ball touch, roll, and distance control. This is a great putter for beginners to golf and when we tested it really felt like the one where you get the most putt for the buck.

Best putter beginners 2019

Double milled surface, gives a more consistent ball control and roll for better distance feel. This surface also reduces miss-hits to some degree which is great for longer putts.

Counter-balance technology, in the shaft, makes the point of balance closer to the hands, which gives a smoother and more controlled put-motion. This is a great grip that comes with the putter.

Dark anti-reflex processing, a new ultra dark PVD-finish reduces reflexes and emphasizes the precision lines.

  • Great bargain and value for money
  • A standard great delivering putter.
  • Great design and comfortable swing motion

Cleveland Huntington Beach Soft 11.0

Standard Grip: Standard Cleveland
Handicap recommendation: All
Club attribute: Standard putter with distance control

Pros:
Soft feel, toe, and heel optimized weights

Cons:
Cleveland is not usually the go-to in the putter world.

Bottom line:

Cleveland Huntington Beach Soft is a putter collection with six tour-tested variations – all designed for better distance control and a soft feeling to give you the confidence you need to sink more putts!

Huntington Beach is packed with Speed Optimized Face Technology – a technology whose purpose is consequent speed and distance with every putt, even off-center hits.

This gives both better impact and a softer feel. The toe and heel are optimized with equal weights for straighter putts.

Odyssey Stroke Lab V-Line CS OS

Standard Grip: Odyssey Stroke Lab Oversized
Handicap recommendation: 54-15
Club attribute: Standard putter Graphite Shaft

Pros:
Clean and good looking. We like oversized grips and its comes as a standard

Cons:
Some may feel it a transition since the shaft is very light.

Bottom line:

Odyssey Stroke Lab is a putt series created for players of all different levels and handicap. It really aids in the putting stroke and is all and the V-Line CS is just a great all around putter.

What really makes this putter stand out is its shaft. It is partly made out of steel and partly out of graphite in order to make it 40g lighter than traditional putter shafts. It is also stiffer, which decreases its twist-stiffness for better control over the club head.

The weights from the shaft are moved into the toe and heel of the putter to give it a great balance which makes repeating puts much more comfortable and aids in consistency. Furthermore, an insert in the putter’s sweet spot creates more topspin, which makes for softer ball roll and distance control.

Another plus is the standard grip that comes with an oversized grip to make it a great feel in your hand to increase control.

  • Premium feel at a great value
  • Soft feel and a light shaft
  • Great control and consistent put motion
  • Oversized Grip comes as a standard

Best Golf Putters for Beginners – Provided by Pine Club Golf

Best Putter for you as a Beginner (or anyone really)?

When it comes to the putter, it comes down more to preference than what would suit a professional golfer or a beginner. The broader strokes would indicate that beginners would benefit from using the little bigger putters, with more weights distributed in the back of the putter head. The opposite of the spectrum is the blade putters with barely any weights and way smaller putter heads.

Looks and design. The design and appearance of your putter are more important than you might think! It adds confidence, it reduces the risk of you wanting to replace it prematurely and it’s always fun to match your putter with your irons, driver etc. On the contrary, the putter might be the one club that is usually not in combination with the complete set.

Too advanced putter? A lot of new golfers make the mistake of buying a putter that is too old and too difficult to handle. This will only hurt your progress and make you resent playing golf. Get a nice and new driver to start off with, and then continue on to a more demanding but one with more control when you feel ready!

Buying a used putter? Only if it is not too old and in good condition! We would not recommend buying a putter that is 3-4 years or older. Technology moves really quickly and a used putter will be worned out.

Re-use old clubs? If you are returning to golf or gets to inherit your dad’s old clubs, you should make sure what type of clubs they are! We see a lot of players using old or inherent clubs that are way too difficult for beginners and then wonder why their game is not improving.

A Complete Review for the Best Putters for Beginners 2019

Q&A – Know This Before you Buy your Putter

What Putter should I look for?

This is all in the feel. The design is a very important feature of a preferred putter as confidence in your putting stroke is very important, as the margins for putting is very thing. One good thing with the putter is that you can actually use it for a longer time period than you would a driver, as the technology doesn’t move that quickly when it comes to putters. There, feel and design is most important.

Why is shaft design important when it comes to a putter?

The shaft is usually what decides the offset of a putter (in contrast to ordinary iron clubs). Offset is where on the putter the shaft is attached. The outcome of this is to decide where your hands and eyes are when lining up for a put. A lot of offset on a putter means that the club head of the putter is behind the ball, which means that the ball will be in a straight line from your eyes down between your feet.

This comes down to preference but a lot of putters nowadays have a little bit of an offset.

Why are there different forms and design of different putters?

There is a huge variety of design for putters and here we will take a look at some of the most common ones. Normally, you would divide putters into 3 types: blade, mallet, and half mallet.

The first type is a classic blade putter. These are normally very attractive to lay your eyes on since they are simple in their design. The downside is that they are not very forgiving with poorer putts, so if you were to shop for one you should be pretty confident in your skills.

Half mallet is the next step and is the putter on the right below. It is a combination of a blade putter and a full mallet. Not as pure as a blade and not as forgiving as a mallet.

The mallet putter is by far the most popular right now and that is the putters we have in our guide today. It is illustrated to the left below and has larger bodies and more weights distributed in the heel and toe. It adds forgiveness, and even though it might not look as a good as a blade putter, it is still the way to go – especially as a beginner.

This is kind of the same arguments as with your iron clubs. Visit our article on game-improvement irons to see the similarities.  (And a lot of  nice clubs)

Is material of the clubhead on putters important?

Yes and no. Usually, the surface is made out of steel and could be milled. Sometimes, there are inserts in the sweet spot with all kind of materials such as rubber etc to aid in the control. If you live in a climate with fast greens soft inserts could benefit you, and the opposite is true with colder and “wetter” climates.

But there is no clear cut rule saying what is better when and where so, therefore, our suggestion would be to ignore this for the time being.
