I have 2 putters ....one is a mallet and the other is a blade type ( Newport-compatible)

the mallet....I quite choon as in I can catch the line intended...but lagging is not good

the blade....I not as choon to catch line intended but more comfortable with lagging....ie min 3 putt

which one should I stick with for better or worse?

Can bring both right?

Or you can use mallet but look at the target while lagging. Just imagine you are using blade.

Bro DS, I'm facing the very same dilemma. I may opt to go back to Abbie, you know. Right now, it's a toss-up between Abbie and the Ghost.

Make practice putts at home in pitch darkness with both putters ... hopefully one of them will feel better ... after that it should just be an alignment issue

I think u should use the putter that:
1) gives u the most confidence
2) suited to ur putting stroke

Whether u make more putts on one doesn't matter, practice more then. It's confidence that matters

Depends on ur stroke:
Straight back straight thru stroke - mallet
Slight arc - blade

Ha nor.... If Phil Mickelson can bring 2 drivers to choose draw or fade, surely DS can bring 2 putters Laughing

Putter = Feel = Individual preference
Putter = Light Head or Heavy Head = Individual preference
Putter = Blade or Mallet = Individual preference

Personally, I prefer heavy head for better feel. I have both mallet and blade putter but now revert to blade. No special reason. Just like it.

In my country, there's a Filipino Golf Pro playing on Asian Tour who uses two putter. His name is Artemio Murakami, a half Japanese - Filipino golf professional

A Mallet putter for fast green and a blade putter for medium fast green

As long as your clubs are 14, you can bring two Putter

i think you just need more practice with the 'zhun' putter to develop feel for distance control

why not come earlier before a game and practice lor

putting mat at home doesn't count
