Ever since I was introduced to Evnroll Putters at the PGA show I have been a real fan. I have help a number of the members at my club make decisions on a new putter and this type of information has been a great help. Check out the link below to get the latest information.

In 2018 it appears that again the Evnroll has topped the list again, however, a new character has entered the fight. Tommy Armour has a new model (#3 Align) that has great test results. Based on price, it is appears to be very much within consideration of the readers here.

2016 Most Wanted: Blades vs. Mallets

MyGolfSpy had done another good job updating the 2015 testing they did on putters. The integration of information for evaluation by every golfer has a good layout highlighted. Great data source. Below are the links to the best of both worlds of putting.

It should be noted that there are some great names are missing from the both lists. Therefore, Player must do some evaluation of the their individual putting style in addition to testing as many of those putters shown on the two lists before purchasing.

I have recently received one of those putter which are not listed in this report. EVNROLL, a company which follows the Rife plan, appear to have found a great model. The highlight to the line is a slightly heavier head and the incorporation of a purer roll technology. The battle at the top now have a greater number of models from various manufacturers for the consumers.

New Putting Lesson: Finding The Right Line To The Hole

Due to the most critical importance of putting relative to one’s score (ususally 41-45%), I have always looked for articles that build the foundation of understanding for the process. Recently I received an article from David McKenzie, Golf State of Mind, that I think is a very good basic analysis of a critical part of the process that every player must understand as a baseline for improvement in his/her personal game.
