Re: Putter Length!

It sounds like you need a shorter putter!! Best way to fit the length is to set up to a ball like you would if you were playing, and drop a ball from the bridge of your nose and watch where the ball lands. It should land just inside or right on the top of the ball. Now notice that you are likely standing too far away from the ball to make your body fit to the putter putter. You want the putter to allow your arms to hang naturally from the shoulders without too much elbow bend or gripping too far down the shaft. For your height, I suggest you start with a 33 inch putter and test your arm hand and ball drop drill.
