Over the past ten years, maybe a bit longer, increasingly golfers on the professional tours have been switching to belly and long putters and that has led increasingly amateurs to follow more healthy and give the longer shafted putters a try. The gradual switching from conventional putters to long and belly putters demonstrates to us why the unconventional putter guide is purposeful in taking a fresh appearance at your putting.
We believe very firmly that the belly and long putters will continue to become more common with the execs and amateurs and that the overwhelming majority of amateurs must be testing out or by using these putters on a regular basis.
A belly putter is a type of putter much like a typical putter, except that the shaft is longer and the end of the shaft is anchored by the golfers abdominal or belly. Belly putters have longer shafts than conventional putters, but their shafts are not as long as those of the long putter. The longer shaft of the belly putter is anchored against the golfer's belly or abdominal, which serves as a fulcrum for the stroke. Belly putters usually range from 41 to 44 inches in duration versus 32-36 inches for conventional putters.
As is the case with a typical putter, the golfer uses every hands (the grip may not be varied from the grip used with a typical putter) in the stroke and has pretty much the same stance as used when by using a typical putter. The key with the belly putter is the connection of the butt end of the shaft to the body which helps preserve the wrists quiet during the stroke. At the present time belly putters are legal beneath all of the rules of golf. Belly putters appear to have the greatest appeal to golfers who use their hands too much in the stroke or who are suffering from the yips.
In contrast to the conventional and belly putters, the long putter is a type of putter that have longer shafts than even the belly putters. While the shafts for belly putters run from 41 to 44 inches, the shaft duration for long putters can run from 48 to 52 inches. Since the shaft of the long putter is longer it lets the golfer take a more upright stance. A grip of a golfer by using a long putter is almost always a split grip, with one hand holding the end of the club, then bare shaft, then the other hand cut on the shaft. For a right handed golfer his left hand is on the upper grip part, and the correct hand is on the cut grip part. The top hand in this grip, the left hand for right handed participants, can either be totally on the end of the shaft or the thumb of the left hand could rest on the butt end of the shaft to remedy similarly stabilize the shaft and club. The golfer's top hand and the butt end of the putter is then anchored against the golfer's sternum or chest, and that anchor serves as a fulcrum for a pendulum stroke, which the golfer initiates by using his cut or right hand.
