Best Arm Lock Putters
The truth is, if you’re looking at Arm Lock putters, you probably have a small (or large) case of the yips. When you step up to a short putt, fear courses through your body, even during casual rounds with your best mates. Where most people view a 3 footer as a tap in, you feel a deep sense of anxiety every time you’re left with anything longer than shoe length.
It’s okay. Losing your confidence on the greens has happened to some of the best players that have ever lived. The great Ben Hogan became so bad in his later years, he started arguing for putting to be removed from the sport. Ernie Els is another prime example of a golfing genius turned into an average performer primarily because he lost the ability to sink short putts consistently.
Thankfully, Arm Lock Putters can be a Godsend for golfers that need a reliable putting stroke that can withstand the internal pressure that dominates their mind every time they step up to a short putt. They’re also good for long putts, but it’s the stability and face control they provide on shorter putts that really separates them from normal putters. This is why Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson have switched to arm lock putting.
Now let’s take a detailed look at all the Best Arm Lock Putters currently available.
