Editorial Reviews

Review

"There are any number of books on putting, but here's one on putter fitting...Weir has devoted an entire book (albeit a short one) to setting golfers on the right path." -Golf Digest online

"Weir...devotes just under 100 informative pages to what you need to know to assure that the putter and the putter holding it can coexist in peace and harmony." -Golf.com (Golf Magazine)

"Do you know how to make sure your putter is the right fit, and partner, for you? Weir goes through everything you need to know about types of putters...Chapters are quick, sometimes just five pages, and explain what you need to know and why." -New York Times

From the Author

My goal with Putter Perfection is to help ignite a revolution in the common understanding of the putter. Simply put, too many golfers play with ill-fitting putters. A proper fit can improve performance, save strokes and make the game more enjoyable.

Putter fitting is the new frontier of putting improvement, which is why more and more putter companies are offering expanded fitting options at the point of purchase. But the golfer must first understand the fundamentals of putter fitting in order to make sense of those options, and to make informed purchasing decisions. And that's where this book will make a difference.

More About the Author

Sean Weir is the founder and editor of PutterZone.com, the leading online destination dedicated exclusively to the world of putters.

"My goal with Putter Perfection is to help ignite a revolution in the common understanding of the putter," he says. "Simply put, too many golfers play with ill-fitting putters. Golf is hard enough without that! A proper fit can improve performance, save strokes and make the game more enjoyable."

Sean is not an elite golfer or a putting instructor. "I'm an average recreational golfer," he says. "What's different about me is that I've made it my vocation to learn as much as possible about putters, and to share my knowledge with others so that they, like me, might use it to improve their putting."

You can learn the hard way:
Spend hour after hour searching the web for information.
Spend days, weeks, months, and possibly years sifting through the information you find. How do you know what is good/relevant vs. bad/irrelevant?
Spend years on the greens frustrated.
Spend a lot of $$$ looking for just the right putter that will last years and lower your score.
Or, you can learn the easy way:
Buy this book, spend a few hours reading it getting the right information that has been verified by the right people, have a handy reference guide for when you are ready to place your $$$ down, and enjoy your time on the greens.
It seems like a simple choice. Sean has done the research for you, verified that research with professionals, and put it in an easy to read easy to understand and enjoyable format. Even for those that have done a lot of research there are nice tips in this book that I haven't seen elsewhere.
I did it the hard way since there wasn't the easy way until now. Make life simple and buy this book.

I enjoyed reading Sean Weir's "Putter Perfection" book and found it very informational and interesting. Why? It gives the golfer a laundry list of factors to consider in selecting a putter which will match their game and physical attributes. Such fitting specs include length, lie angle, loft, alignment, head weight, swingweight, grip type and putter balance to name a few. For example, a face-balanced, center-shafted putter will best suit a straight-back-and-through stroke while a heel-shafted, toe hang putter will best suit an arcing stroke. Players who read the book will become aware of all of these factors and why they are important in the proper selection of a putter. The days of simply selecting a putter off the rack should be over! The player must now do their homework in investigating manufacturers and the types of putters they have to offer. For example, some companies are beginning to offer putter fittings and adjustable lengths for their models. Some internet research will reveal there is a methodology out there for determining correct length, lie and loft. There is also computer software out there to help evaluate the type and quality of one's stroke. It's truly a process which takes time and effort if it is to be done properly. Out of all of this work and with the aid of a qualified club maker or professional, a dedicated golfer might even assemble an experimental, prototype putter and try it out before making a purchase. Reading "Putter Perfection" is one of the steps in the process toward getting the right putter in one's hands.

This is a GREAT short easy book to read but it is to the point with an array of valuable information. I had no idea what considerations go into selecting a putter. I must say it is an outstanding book for golfers that want to understand the dynamics of a putter which helps in you selecting the right one for, hopefully, lower scores. I can't say enough about the book as I really learned things that I had no idea about. I am a casual golfer that has recently gotten an interest in club dynamics this gook is a great one for dynamics on a putter. Because of reading the book I changed my putter to a face balanced putter and my putting has visibly (and in the score column) improved.

While this book is an excellent compendium of types of putters, specifications etc and explanations of what is available and why a putter might or might not suit a player, I was disappointed that there was nothing about how I could go about the process of identifying the best putter for me. e.g. there is a chapter on putter length but no information on how I can determine the optimal length for my own use. It was rather like a mechanic explaining all the parts of an automobile but not telling me how to drive it.

This a great book with a lot of information about the most important club in your bag! Yes you read it right! It is not your driver.
Although for me, being my self a club maker hobbiest, it was a little to superficial. But overall a great information book

With all due respect to the author, this is basically a collection of regurgitated information that one can find for free around the Internet. There is nothing groundbreaking or really informative in this book. For example, the author will explain the different offsets in the hosels, and mentions that people with different eye dominances may be suited towards one design or another.... and that's it. He never makes any deep correlations between the designs and how it might suit specific types of strokes/golfers/techniques.. Instead, it is basically a short brochure on what kind of putters are available, with no solid recommendations, studies, or anything quantitative to help with a putter fitting. This might be a great free guide to download, but for the asking price it is not even close to being worth a read. I highly recommend skipping this book, and just using the internet to do your preliminary research.

Putter Perfection is an excellent tutorial covering all the factors to consider when selecting a putter optimized for your game. Pointing out the various choices in putters and linking those to stroke-type and playing conditions, the book provides a sound basis from which to decide the putter characteristics best for you. Unlike many other "how to" golf books, Putter Perfection provides competing (often diverging) views from several well-known golfers/teachers. The book leaves it to the reader to pick the viewpoint best suited for the individual's own game. Overall, the book delivers what it promises. If you want to try an informed approach when making your next putter choice, this is a great place to start.
