GP Putter Design Review

Importantly, the GP putter from Face On Putting is USGA conforming. First, the putter and shaft are joined at an angle that helps create a straight-back-and-straight-through putting motion. This straight-back-and-straight-through approach helps many players keep the club head more square to their target creating more directional accuracy. Next, the GP putter is made to be only 3 & 1/16 inches wide to enable a perfect pendulum motion as the player makes contact with the golf ball during their putting stroke. Lastly, the GP putter has a fang design that increases the forgiveness of the putter on off center strikes. Overall, the GP putter is crafted with precision to allow players to take advantage of their natural posture and visual feedback system.
