## 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.

## What is the best height for a putter?

Guidelines recommend a 52-inch putter if you’re 6 feet to 6 feet 1 tall and a 51-inch putter if you’re 5 feet 11 to 6 feet tall. If you’re 5 feet 10 to 5 feet 11, use a 50-inch putter and a 49-inch putter if you’re 5 feet 9 to 5 feet 10 tall.

## How many degrees can you bend a putter?

Most putters that are available off the shelf have a lie angle ranging between 70 and 72 degrees. Some manufacturers allow an offset of the lie angle so that it can be increased to 90 degrees. According to Rules of Golf, the minimum offset angle permissible is 10 degrees.

## 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.

## 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 length putter does Jordan Spieth use?

## How much does 1 degree of loft affect distance?

The distance difference between clubs is created equally by the increments in club length and loft angle. The calculations here are based on 1/2″ club length difference = 5 yards distance difference and every 4° loft angle difference = 5 yards distance difference.

## Does changing loft affect lie?

As you change the loft and the face angle, you will also change the lie unless there is a separate setting to alter the lie independently of loft. Loft changes the ball flight vertically and lie changes the ball flight horizontally.

## What is the proper length for a putter?
