have had about 6 different putters but still happy with my first one a Donnay 6 series putter, scores keep tumbling down so if it aint broke no point in fixing it, AN, if your good at putting and your scores are low why change the one you have??

I've been considering getting a new putter. However, I'm scared of changing from my 10 year old Donnay putter I found in my mums garage. Does a good putter actually help your score or is it just marketing talk?

Marketing for me. I've had the same putter for 8/9 years and just adjusted the putter to my needs as I've gone along i.e. grip changes for changes in feel and shortened to 28"

It's all personal choice really. If you find one that suits you, get it. If that means paying a couple of hundred pounds for one and it works then fine, on the other hand if you find one for 50p in a charity shop and it works that's just as good. Just don't fall for the hype of the manufacturers claims that you can buy a game, you can't.
My brother is probably the best putter I know and he still uses the brass job he stole from a crazy golf course in Clacton in the mid seventies.
Me? I still use an old Ram Spider I got with my first full set. It's been modified extensively, had bits chopped off and weights added, it's been shortened and been mass dampened. And it's blue. But it's mine and it works (most times) for me.

I would say that the putter is the least changed club in most peoples, pros and ams alike, I you got a putter that 'works' then stick with it. ive still got my 2ball blade from when it first came out( a good few years).
If you do realy 'need' a new putter, first ask yourself, why? it is probabley you 'wanting' not 'needing'. Then try as many as you can, if you can try on the course then all the better. Putters ,i think are more personal than other clubs, some you like the look of , some the weight, the way they sit, etc...and ive said this before but, they are the most important.(two 7irons 2 putts is par,but one driver one wedge n 3putts is bogey)lol..

The reason i need a different putter is because when i started trying to play(and i`m still trying)
I had a basic putter cant remember the name ,theN my uncle gave me an old putter no big name and it was just the right length and it felt good.Then i sold everying (ok silly me)
If the rest of my game was like my putting i`d be ok (ish)
Yesterday i got a .............wait for it .............. a £6.99 classic dunlop putter it felt great, length and weight etc etc ........may be a 9 hole test drive tomorrow !!!

I've brought loads, still got loads at least 7 in the cupboard some worth a couple of hundred quid. Best thing to do is just get one that feels nice and you feel comfertable with, latest putter cost £59 and is my favourite. I would advise getting the length adjusted though, this is what eventuially helped me turn the corner with my putting I'm 6ft 1" but have got longish arms so now use a 31.5" putter as opposed to the standard 35" and this has helpeed me get over the ball so much better.

Totally agree with the idea that it is personal choice when it comes to a putter! Before I bought mine 8 years ago I tried out almost every putter on the market. I would definitely recommend narrowing it down though if you can to what you feel most comfortable with - insert, blade, mallet or a belly putter (blasphemy).
I play with a scotty cameron pro platinum Laguna model and its great. UNfortunately its me who cant get it in the hole!!
