The most often used club in your bag is,
00:08
you guessed it, the putter.
00:11
I know you know what it's mainly used for,
00:13
but did you know you can use the putter anywhere you want.
00:15
I don't mean, use it off the tee,
00:18
but it's okay to use it to get out of a flat bunker
00:20
or from the fairway.
00:22
The putter is a great stroke saver
00:23
and it's the easiest club to make solid contact with.
00:26
I wouldn't use it for a real long shot,
00:27
but around the greens, it's great.
00:30
There are many different types of putters and styles.
00:32
Which one is right for you?
00:34
It's all personal preference.
00:35
This is the part of the game where you really
00:37
get to tap into the right side of the brain.
00:39
So, pick the one that looks and works the best for you.
00:42
Try many different models
00:44
when you go to a golf shop or a sporting goods store.
00:46
Just remember, in golf, the putter's your best friend.
