Choosing The Right Scotty
PUTTERS ARE PERSONAL
Many players pick a shape that complements their stroke. Technical strokes tend to prefer square shapes and mechanical necks. Players that want to rid themselves of technical thoughts tend towards softer lines and flowing necks.
All Scotty Cameron putters are precision milled so the critical angles of the face, sole and shaft ensure each putter sits squarely. Each head is shaped and softened to flow to the ground and inspire confidence at address.
PUTTERS ARE NOT PENDULUMS
Putters do not swing vertically back and through along the target line. Because of lie angle, the proper putting stroke moves along an arcing path: slightly inside of the target line, back to square, then to the inside again after impact.
The proper length putter correctly sets eye position just inside the target line, and the correct amount of toe flow allows the putter to flow squarely to the proper arcing path throughout the stroke.
EVERYONE NEEDS TOE FLOW
In order for the putter head to move squarely along the proper arcing path, the toe of the putter must "flow" throughout the stroke. How and where the neck or shaft of the putter joins the head determines its toe flow.
Be sure to choose a putter that either flows naturally along the proper arching path, or helps to correct it. This will reduce the tendency to manipulate the putter face with your hands. The best way to find the toe flow that corrects or complements your stroke is to hit straight, flat putts from 20 feet to see what works best.
