What is the standard loft on a putter?
The average loft on a putter ranges from 2 to 4 degrees, but it’s possible you could need more loft if you’re like early-career Lefty and add a significant amount of forward press — leaning the shaft towards the ball at impact — during your stroke.
What angle is a putter face?
A 90-degree lie angle would have the clubhead parallel to the ground with the shaft pointing straight up, a setup that is against the Rules of Golf. Still, your putter will be the most upright club in your bag, and most putters shipped from the factory have a lie angle around 70 degrees.
How important is loft on a putter?
Loft is needed on a putter because as the ball rests on the green it pushes down slightly into the grass. The loft is therefore needed to lift the ball up and on to the surface for an end-over-end smooth roll. Too much loft and ball will hop on impact and skid more before rolling out.
Are putters lifted?
Putter loft lifts the ball off the surface of the green and imparts a small amount of backspin. The ball remains in flight for about four inches before it hits the green and skids for about 10-12 inches before taking on its true roll.
Are lofted putters legal?
By definition, the loft of a putter must not be greater than 10 degrees. Putters are permitted to have negative loft. However, a negative loft exceeding a magnitude of 15 degrees would not be considered “traditional and customary in form and make” (see Section 1a(i) below).
What is the loft of Bryson DeChambeau driver?
DeChambeau’s driver is Cobra’s King Speedzone with an L.A. Golf prototype shaft made just for DeChambeau. The loft is 5.5 degrees —similar to what most long-drive competitors use.
Should a putter face be flat?
Putters aren’t flat. They do have loft — just not much of it — and the amount of loft in your putter does matter. If your putts tend to bounce or skip, that’s a sign that the loft of your putter might not be well-suited to your putting style.
Why is my putter face closed at impact?
Only if the balls are hit with a square putter face at exactly the same time, both balls will leave the putter blade with the same speed and the same direction. If the outer ball is leading, then the face at impact was closed, if the inner ball is leading (as shown in the picture) then the face has been open at impact.
Can you adjust loft on putter?
Besides you should not be looking at the static loft of your putter, but rather the dynamic loft you create at impact. A forward press, or hands forward at address, changes the static loft by delofting your putterface. In the same way your ball position will add loft when it is forward in your stance.

What is putter lie?
The lie angle for a putter or any golf club is the angle that is formed by the sole of your putter’s head and its shaft when the putter is placed in a neutral position during address. Most putters that are available off the shelf have a lie angle ranging between 70 and 72 degrees.
What is mallet putter?
A mallet is a putter that has a larger clubhead around the club face. They are generally round, square, or what is referred to in the industry as “half moon.” The size allows the weight distribution to be done over a larger area. The size also allows for a more elaborate design for aiming aids.
