I’ve favored a heavier putter for quite some time. I think that it encourages a smoother, less handsy stroke. I also use it in place of a wedge from the rough close to the green (there’s a whole lot less that can go wrong with a putter.) and can accurately run it up to the green from 30 yards out in the fairway.
A typical Ping Anser style putter head weights 300 – 330 grams. The Snake Eyes Strike-Line Putter Head head I use (shown above) weights 400 grams.
Apparently I’m not the only one who has this idea. The’s a company called Heavy Putter, which makes ultra-heavyweight putter heads that weight between 450 and 550 grams. There’s a picture below:
I’d get one of these, but they’re horribly expensive for a putter: $259.
If you want to try a heavy putter, you’re much better off getting one of the Strike Lines. You can put one together for less than $50.
