A new and exciting trend in putter fitting is the use of heavy counter weights in the end of the putter grip to smooth out the golfer’s takeaway to create a much more consistent and accurate stroke through the ball. For golfers who mis-hit putts and suffer from overall inconsistency of accuracy and distance, using one of TWGT’s 60g, 80g or 100g counterweights can deliver real putting improvement. The key putter fitting elements are Length, Loft, Lie, Weighting, and Grip Style/Size.

Putters

Putter Shafts

Putter Length– When the golfer assumes their most comfortable stance over the putt, the proper length is achieved when the golfer’s arms are extended and relaxed but not to the point of having to reach or stretch the arms to grip the putter. Putter Loft– The more the hands/grip is ahead of the ball position at impact, the higher the putter loft needs to be to ensure a consistent roll. As a general rule, hands ahead of the ball = 5-6° loft; hands in line with the ball = 4° loft; hands behind the ball at impact = 2-3° loft.

Putter Grips

Putter Lie– The putter hosel or shaft must be bent so the putter always sits dead in the center of the sole from heel to toe in the address and impact position. Grip Name Tac-Wrap Jumbo Putter Grip

Putter Weighting– Putting is so unique for each golfer in technique and feel that experimentation with different amounts of headweight AND grip butt weighting is often required to find that overall best combination of weighting to keep the putter steady, controlled and at consistent speed through Counterweights the ball. page 82 Putter Grip Style/ Size– Again, each golfer has to experiment and find the style and size of grip that keeps the hands relaxed but secure and allows a smooth, consistent stroke through the ball.

“Dear Tom and TWGT Staff, Many thanks for your great customer service and your great products. The people and products of TWGT never ceases to amaze.” – Mark Sparks, msparks@umpd.umd.edu

“I recently was fitted for a set of 770CFE irons. I found the nearest company was Two Rivers Golf near Sacramento, Calif. Anyway, I love the clubs and getting fit by professionals is a much smarter way to buy clubs. Scott and Jim at Two Rivers Golf made the experience for me and my friend Dennis worthwhile. We drove from Utah to Sacramento just for the experience. The quality of the Wishon brand is awesome. We have the clubs, bag, hats and so we will be walking/playing advertisements for your great product.

Kudos for TWGT

Oh by the way, loved reading your book, ‘The Search for the Perfect Golf Club’”. – Sincerely, Ray

“Tom Wishon is one of the golf industry’s most prolific designers. In the past two decades, he’s fashioned literally hundreds of head designs during stints at Golfsmith and Dynacraft. Firms like these made their mark selling components—heads, shafts and grips— to custom club makers and some club maker wannabes. These days Wishon runs his own company, Tom Wishon Golf Technology (TWGT). His latest iron head, 560MC Forged Carbon Steel, is a forged cavity back with built-in game-improvement properties. Wishon is proud as a papa because, he says, it is the first forged carbon steel iron with the entire back cavity made by CNC machining. Most forged cavity back irons squeeze carbon steel out of the way to form a cavity. But Wishon mills the back of the head to produce a deeper cavity with more weight around it. The payoff is a higher moment of inertia or, in lay terms, a better result for off-center hits. It’s a clever way to deliver a more forgiving forged iron.”
