Assessment Criteria

The last 18 months have seen a plethora of new putters enter the market.

With the huge variety of offerings on the market, the most challenging aspect we had was choosing a comprehensive set of putters to review. We initially cast the net wide, but quickly whittled the list down to our view of the 10 best putters available on the market at the moment.

Below you can find a side-by-side comparison of our list of best putters for 2016.

All putters were put to the test against our standard assessment model, where we looked at 5 key aspects: Design and Appearance, Build Quality, Control / Feel, Performance and Value for Money. Individual scores of each of these aspects was then aggregated to give an overall assessment score, as follows:

Overall Mark Score Description
Excellent A+ 9.6 – 10 Stop the clock and buy now. This piece of equipment will change your game.
Excellent A 9.0 – 9.5 Superb piece of gear. Amazing quality, performance and value for money.
Great B+ 8.6 – 8.9 Great offering. This piece of gear won’t let you down.
Good B 8.0 – 8.5 Solid piece of gear with only minor issues to criticise.
Average C+ 7.6 – 7.9 Adequate offering, but not the best value for money.
Average C 7.0 – 7.5 Not the most exciting piece of gear, seek alternatives.
Weak D+ 6.6 – 6.9 Leaves lots to be desired. You can do a lot better.
Weak D 6.0 – 6.5 Steer well clear of this gear. Not worth the money!

The Titleist Scotty Cameron Select is our Editor’s Choice for Putters in 2016.

The ‘crème de la creme’ of golf equipment, a classy offering from a leading brand. In terms of feel, sound, weighting technology and roll off the putter face it’s full marks.

Here is a summary of the pros and cons. To read the full review click here.


PROS:
  • Soft, but solid feel that provides exceptional feedback on putts hit out the center of the clubface.
  • Heel-Toe weight technology that is matched to the length of putter providing optimal potential for the best strike and roll possible
  • Efficient speed and roll off the putter face

CONS:
  • Only one model is offered in a left handed option, which is a pity
  • It’s pricey – no messing around on that front, but if you are serious about the game and can afford it then it’s worth it

Odyssey White Hot RX Putter

odyssey-white-hot-rx-putter-review-4
Odyssey are only known for their putters. That’s because that’s all they do in terms of equipment, but boy oh boy do they do it well!

The White Hot RX range has carefully and effectively changed their insert technology to produce more friction yet softer feel in order to optimize roll and ball speed at impact. At the price and with Odyssey’s quality guarantee this is indeed a Best Seller.

Here is a summary of the pros and cons. To read the full review click here.


PROS:
  • World class leader in feel, the White Hot RX sets the standard especially due to the oval patterned insert
  • Incredibly effective in terms of roll off the putter face at impact, which subsequently holds the ball on line from the get-go improving accuracy
  • Offered in Mens, Ladies, Right, Left, Long, Short – options are plenty and you will find something that suits you

CONS:
  • The blue accent doesn’t quite do it for us – in the #2 head especially. There seems to be too much blue and detracts somewhat from it’s classiness

Ping Cadence TR Anser 2

ping-cadence-tr-anser-2-putter-review-2

PROS:
  • Beautiful clean, square lines to the Anser 2
  • Variety in options in terms of insert or weight
