  Does your putter suit your stroke?
  Performance Tip of the Week

Brought by Christopher Wright, BSI PGA Coach

Most golfers do not understand the importance of buying a putter that actually suits their stroke. Individuals tend to base their purchase of putters on the fact that it may be the new trending product on the market or they buy a putter for the reason that a friend has informed them of one that they are currently using and it works wonders for their game; however, in this case the specific putter may suit someone else’s stroke but not your own – thus the importance of finding the putter best suited to your stroke.
