Types of Putter Heads in Golf

In this section I am going to explain the types of putter heads that you can find on the market and all the brands have a portfolio of putters with the three heads that I will describe below.

Blade Head Putter

The blade head putter It is the oldest and most traditional. Using a relatively small head, its classic design was immensely popular in golf from the 1900s to the 1990s and is still used by golfers today (Tiger Woods has played a popular brand of putter blade on the PGA Tour and with it, has won 82 PGA Tour tournaments).

The simple, flat look was easy to produce in the early days of golf club production, and the smooth stroke a blade produced was pleasing on many types of greens. 

Traditionally suited to harder, faster greens that require a more delicate touch, blade putters tend to have a balanced face and up to a 60º toe balance, which means they will suit a player with a straight putting stroke and with slight curvature in the backswing.

Peripheral-Weighted Putter Head

The peripheral weighted or toe and heel weighted putter was the natural evolution of the Blade putter. Long and lean at the address, the design could still be smooth and delicate, but with additional weight on both heel and toe, adding more consistency and forgiveness.

Made famous by Ping Anser's 1966 design, this shape of putter revolutionized the game and is still used by many of the world's best golfers.

Traditionally balanced toe, the length and design of the hosel means it can be modified to suit almost any type of swing.

Mallea putter head

Just as the large heads in the driver design made tee shots more consistent and forgiving, The mallet-shaped putter offers the same benefits on the green. With more size to play, manufacturers often employ various shapes and alignment aids on the back of the head to help players better align themselves with putts.

The large head design of the putter allows manufacturers to have a lower and deeper center of gravity, as well as increasing the moment of inertia (MOI), which reduces spin and improves performance on off-center putts. Therefore, mallet putters are often face-balanced and suitable for straight shots.

Aspects to consider when choosing the head of the putter in Golf

At the time of choosing the best putter for your golf There are many aspects that we must take into account, but the clearest when selecting a putter model that is suitable for each player and that adapts to him in many aspects are:

Movement type

The natural movement of the putter greatly determines the type of putter to play and if the putter helps the player to execute the most appropriate movement mechanics, that is why our job will be to carry out the analysis in the fitting.
