    How far do you hit your putter?

    Fed up with driver threads so thought I would ask this one. I either hit mine too far or not far enough.

    Handicap 18. Bag full of Taylor Made with a bit of Dunlop thrown in.

    Re: How far do you hit your putter?

    In all seriousness, I find with my normal tempo and going as far back as it's comfortable I get about 25 paces out of it.

    If I have a few minutes before a round it's one of the things I check on the practice green to get a number for the day.

    In my experience, it's a useful thing to know and most people don't...

    Did once see Seve put one on the 3rd green of The Dukes at Woburn.

    Only 130 odd yards!

    Mind you he also did it with a driver.

    there was a chap i worked with that was trying to get his longest put recognised by Guinness. he was on a par 3 and duffed his tee shot. his playing partner said "you should have used your putter i would have gone further. he took his putter from 170 yards and holed it. it was witnessed by caddies employed by the course but it didn't stand

    Why would you want to hit your putter. I find a well hit pro V1 goes much further
