Golf Australia Express : May 2014
SOME are ugly as sin. Others look like they flew straight off the set of Return of the Jedi. Many more are all but indistinguishable from their run-of- the-mill stable mates. They’re counterbalance putters, and they’re here to make your post-anchor ban life that little bit easier. The concept is simple: stick a weight towards the top of the putter grip in order to offset the weight of the putter head below. It’s intended to mimic the feel of an anchored putter by slowing the swing down and thus increasing the putter head’s moment of inertia, but without the fear of falling foul of the rules when world golf demands daylight between the club and your body in 2016. It’s not like they’re new, but with volatile pros seeking a wand that will give them the same confidence that their broomsticks and belly putters provided, counterbalance putters are expected to provide a workably happy medium.
