People who are just beginning to experiment with golf are often intimidated by all the new terms that they hear. There are so many, in fact, that it can all get downright confusing. One new golfing term that they’re sure to hear is “putter.” A putter is a special kind of golf club that is used to strike the ball at very close distances into the cup. It is a very specialized golf club and it’s pretty much crucial for making that final shot into the cup.

Since putting is probably the most precise moment in the game of golf, putters have several major design requirements that it must fulfill: an easy stroke, the right glide, proper impact, and a topspin ball launch that really minimizes any potential topspin.
Since their advent, putters have undergone major design innovations that lead us to today’s modern putters. Originally made out of forged iron, putters looked like most other golf clubs. Over time, changes were made to the putter’s shape and composition which improved their effectiveness. Today putters are for the most part L-shaped, and are split up into three different types: mallet, peripheral weighted, and blade. These are the three primary form of putter used today. There are also three different variations of putters: long-shaft, chipper and trainer.
