If there is one area that the Golf Lab has been deficient, it is with putters. In the past, our goal has been to allow a player to choose the style he favors and be sure that it is the correct length, lie and loft. We have a large selection of putter grips – all sizes, shapes and colors.
We have had a great deal of success with adding weight to putters. Following the example of the Heavy Putter Company, it is obvious to us that a lot of players benefit by changing the weight and balance of their putters. 100 grams in a counterweight positioned down the butt of a putter shaft can do wonders adding consistency to a player's putting stroke.
In 2010 we are taking another route. We've joined with David Balbi, a PGA Class A professional and 1999 Teacher of the Year in California.
For years, we've reminded players that "Technology" is the least important of the "Three T's" – Talent, Technique and Technology. In 2010 we're going to focus much more on technique.
David is the Bay Area representative of the Edel Putter Company. Edel has devised a unique fitting system based on fitting a putter that allows a player to aim accurately. Experience has proven that very few players aim their putters correctly.
In 2010 we will continue to "tune" a player's own putter at the Golf Lab. For Golf Lab clients who are interested in taking their putting skill to the "next level" the putting studio at Balbi Golf will be a valuable resource. All serious putter fittings will be conducted in the Balbi Golf Studio in San Carlos.
If you are interested in picking up a new putter because of how it looks, plan a visit to the Golf Lab to check out our collection of new and used, classic, unique and oddball putters. Trade three of your unused putters of one you might learn to love in our "new putter love" program.
