Stand Alone Putters
« on: February 17, 2018, 10:50:20 AM »
Hi

First real post on this forum, so here goes.

Does anyone have any insights into the benefits or special features of the stand alone putter - other than the obvious (you don't have to bend over to pick it up)? Seems like there are some new and old names entering this space (Bloodline and Bridgestone).

Thanks

The advertised benefit is that after you put the putter behind the ball you can leave it standing and walk behind the ball to see if it is aligned properly.

Thanks. Anyone have any experience with this?

I see that the Big Easy is a spokesman and recent investor in Bloodline putters. He's currently sitting at 150th on the tour in putting with 3 missed cuts out of 5, so not sure if that's going to help him turn the season around.

I remember seeing putters that were so heavy they 'stood up' down here about 10 years ago. The sales guy asked me if I wanted to roll one and I ran out of the shop.  ;D
