Pick the Putter that is right for you
Do you remember when Harry Potter finds his wand in The Sorcerer’s Stone? Finding the right mini-golf putter isn’t unlike this scene. While the lights won’t flicker and they’ll be no old man watching over you, when you choose the right putter you’ll know. You’ll feel it. Whether it’s one that you brought from home (yes, because you’re that dedicated) or one that you’re borrowing from us, make sure it's something that you know will help you win.
Once you’ve chosen out the putter that will lead you into victory, make sure it’s at belt-level.
How to Grip a Putter
Technique is singular to each player. The hand placement technique that is commonly known and widely used by mini-golfers and professionals alike is a grip that consists of your left hand on the top of the putter with your thumb pointing down the right side of the putter. The rest of your fingers on your left hand should be wrapped around the putter in a firm grip. The next part is tricky, so pay attention. Once your left hand is firmly gripping the putter, curl the pinky on your right hand between your index finger and second finger on the left hand that is gripping the putter. The other three fingers should be resting above your left index finger gripping the putter. The base of your right thumb should be resting on your left thumb while the actual right thumb should be pointed down on the putter, helping to grip it. Once you’ve gripped the putter, give it a couple of practice swings to get a feel for it. Once you’ve got a good idea of what it’s supposed to feel like, muscle memory should help you the rest of the way.
