Best putter of 2021: The top 5

1. Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 

What Scotty Cameron says: “Delivering what players worldwide have requested, Scotty’s new Phantom X 5.5 is not only a rolling change to a proven design. It’s as close to Justin Thomas’ Tour setup as you can possibly get. From prototype to full production, the new Phantom X 5.5 replaces its predecessor and includes the arc-enhancing small slant neck inspired by JT’s configuration, as well as the same overall sizing and material makeup.”

2. Scotty Cameron Special Select Newport 2

What Scotty Cameron says: “Arguably the most famous putter head shape in the world, with scores of professional titles won, Scotty’s flagship model—the new Special Select Newport 2—is the closest-to-Tour setup ever offered. With refinements made to every aspect, this timeless design returns to the roots of sound and feel with its insert-free, solid stainless steel putter head precision milled in the USA.”

3. TaylorMade Spider X  

What TaylorMade says: “The hottest putter model on the PGA TOUR just got even better. To celebrate the 10th year of Spider putters, we’ve built upon every technology and design to create Spider X—fully redesigned and optically engineered to provide more stability and a reimagined approach to alignment. Spider X combines a heavy (320g) steel frame with a lightweight (15g) carbon composite sole to provide extreme perimeter weighting in a more streamlined shape.”

4. LAB Directed Force 2.1

What LAB says: “The DF 2.1 can do amazing things other putters can’t because of Lie Angle Balance, or L.A.B. for short. Lie Angle Balance gives every golfer the ability to consistently repeat the putting stroke with far less effort than with other putters. And it does this by eliminating torque.”

5. Odyssey Ten

What Callaway says: “The Odyssey Ten shape is a Tour proven design that puts an emphasis on alignment and high MOI for more confidence and consistency on the greens. The new Tens putters have improved on those two key performance features dramatically. They showcase exceptional alignment systems, our Tour proven, multi-material Stroke Lab shaft, and the Microhinge Star Insert for improved forward roll. The shape of your putter matters, and that’s why we’re bringing out these incredible new Tens.”

    New putter designs can be good( not great!), but even with better design, to help you have a BETTER perception of “the line”, the percentage ALL this can help to make you a better putter is VERY, very minimal!

    The NUMBER of putters that amateurs, weekend warriors and other recreational golfers have IN THEIR CLOSET- is very telling- be HONEST, and Yes, you have to COUNT ALL the putters you ALREADY TRADED IN- for the shiny new putter!!

    Somewhere- you NEED, come to SERIOUS terms with yourself,
    PRACTICE, REFINING YOUR SET UP, and TIME ON THE COURSE!
    So it really comes down to the old adage, the INDIAN, is much more important than the arrow!
    Yes, you need a good arrow, not a $200-$300 arrow!!

    Just a heads up, the photo you are using of Scotty’s new Phantom X 5.5 is the old model, not the new one that seems to be much more well received.

    It’s good to see LAB putters get some love!! I sold off most of my other putters because non of them could consistently kick my LABs out of the bag.

    I have a standard, the arm-lock, and a broomstick – they make putting enjoyable for me. They each shock my system enough to keep putting fresh and prevent me from becoming too much of a mechanical putter. I totally recommend those interested in getting fit (remotely worked great – surprisingly quick and easy) and give these things a try. I’d be shocked if you regret it.

Details of Collin Morikawa’s WITB changes at The Open

Published

on

Editor’s note: We filed this piece for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report.

Collin Morikawa’s superb play over the opening two days of The 149th Open Championship has come after the American made some equipment adjustments heading into this week.

The 24-year-old, who shot 67-64 in the opening two rounds at Royal St. George’s, swapped out three key irons before Thursday’s opening round.

Morikawa switched from his TaylorMade P730 irons to the brand’s P7MC model in his 7-iron through 9-iron, a decision made after finding the P7MCs aided his turf interaction and provided a more centered ball strike, as well as a touch more forgiveness.

“I changed my irons, my 9- through 7-iron that I normally have blades in. I changed to the MCs strictly because I couldn’t find the center of the face,” said Morikawa following his second round. “Those are three crucial clubs that are some of my favorite clubs. My 8-iron is my favorite club in the bag, and when I wasn’t able to hit it (well) last week well, I knew I had to try something different.”

Last week’s Scottish Open was Morikawa’s first experience on the links. He finished T71.
