A 6-time PGA Tour winner, Matt Kuchar is currently ranked 46th in FedEx Cup points, inside the top-25 in putts made inside 25 feet and 96% effective in putt within 5 feet. This is thanks to his unique putting style where he rests the club against his left forearm and clasps it tight with his right hand, the Arm Lock. His grip is USGA conforming and is not considered to be an anchored stroke. The stroke is extremely effective and it has allowed Kuchar to win last year at the 2013 Franklin Templeton Shootout using a Bettinardi putter.
Every club in your bag has a purpose. Off the tee with your driver, if you are like me, you are looking for distance and control. In the fairways with your irons, you are probably looking for control and forgiveness. When it comes to putting, well, we just want as many one putts as possible.
Of all the clubs in your bag, your putter is by far, the most important. Drivers, woods and irons come and go but your trusty flat stick is one that holds its own in the bag. It should come as no surprise that the custom putter market is one of the biggest in the golf.
