FIT FOR STROKE™

PING’s Fit for Stroke putter-fitting concept will improve your consistency on the greens by matching you with a model that is balanced to fit your stroke type. Every model is either face-balanced for a straight stroke, mid-hang for a slight arc, or toe down for a strong arc. To help you identify putters that fit you, every current PING model has a colored shaft label: blue for straight, green for slight arc, red for strong arc.

Slight Arc 655x392

SLIGHT ARC

In our tests, the majority of golfers fall into the slight-arc camp, where the closing angle on your forward stroke is moderate -- between 3.5 and 7.5 degrees. Your stroke will benefit most from mid-hang putters, which are identified by a green shaft label and listed below.

Straight 655x392

STRAIGHT

If you take the putter back and through on a relatively straight path, your closing angle on the forward stroke is 3.5 degrees or less. According to our studies, you’ll putt most consistently with face-balanced models. Look for PING models with a blue shaft label, which are listed below.

Strong Arc 655x392

STRONG ARC

If your putter travels farther to the inside going back and through, you have a strong arc. When the closing angle on your forward stroke is 7.5 degrees or more, a toe-down model will give you the most consistency. You’re looking for PING putters with a red shaft label; those models are listed below.


Don't change your stroke. Change your putter.

Results from hundreds of player and robot tests at PING offer overwhelming scientific support for the effectiveness of fitting for stroke. In recent years more diagnostic tools and testing equipment have become available, and the results prove that a golfer’s consistency improves when their putter balance matches their stroke type. It was interesting to observe that golfers putt more consistently with stroke-appropriate models, but they also show a personal preference for these models, too. Prior to putting with them, golfers are drawn to models that fit their eye, even before they fit their stroke.
