Better get fitted to know for sure. But a 34" length should be a good starting point.

The ideal putter length sets your eye 1-2” inside of the target line.

If your putter is too long, your set-up posture will be too upright with your eyes set too far inside. This results in a path that starts too far inside. If your putter is too short, your set-up posture will be too hunched over with your eyes set too far outside.

It depends how you address and hold the putter ... Some guys prefer to hang the putter down when addressing the ball like Phil Mickelson, hence these folks would need a shorter length putter than usual ... Some shorter folks choke down on a 35" putter as they feel more balance and prevent wrist break this way ... Just like selecting a putter, it is all boil down to your individual preference ...

any length can work for any height. Look at 'em belly putters.

The key is if you are comfortable with the swing weight. Length affects swing weight and swing weight affects distance.

Lie can be adjusted

Getting fitted is the "most accurate". But end of the day, depends on ur preference.
Though I was fitted, I ended up playing 35" because it somehow suits me better with the way I setup on my putts.

Thanks for all the great comments man. Yeah I was thinking of getting fitted but like some of you said it may come down to how you address and preference on how one strokes the ball. I am having some problems finding the most efficient stroke to minimize the errors on the clutch putts. I am 5"10 and have been hearing that quite a number of guys cut to use a 33" putter. So I asking around if I should do the same and if it will definitely help?

I'm about the same height and I cut all my putters down to 33". Have used 34" putters but somehow most comfy with those 33". It's really a matter of preference. Sometimes on longer putts, I can feel like having a 34-35" putter but generally, 33" works for me.

An option you can consider is the 31" to 35" TM Spider Blade. Grip it at whatever length you like
