    Whats the dealio with huge golf putters?

    Ive just started playing golf with my grandads set of clubs (i havn't played since i was about 12, 9 years ago) and obviously the clubs seem to have changed a fair bit, i was reading about hybrid clubs earier which seemed pretty interesting but then i got round to looking at putters.

    Basically the putter i have looks like one you would get if you were going down to a crazy golf course. All the new ones seem to look like this:

    What purpose does the huge bit at the back serve?
    Are the two white circles of use for anything?

    Cheers

    Lol, some of mine are wooden.. but they are woods

    it gives more weight and balance for an easier putt

    Oh right, so all the fancy stuff at the back doesnt do anything else? Like the circles and stuff?

    I'm not a golfer but have been to driving ranges a few times, want to know how you get into golf I just want to play a full game.

    Anyway to your question if I saw you pull that out of your bag I would laugh at you then call you a cheat :lol: as above they are to balance the club when it hits the ball, so it hits it true.

    It's also meant to look like 3 golf balls lined up to get the line right

    I used to go with my grandad but never really got into it, Was bored the other day so me and a mate went down to the local 3par thing and had a go, was good fun even though I only managed par on one hole. :-D

    Went to the driving range today for a bit of fun and i think were going to go back to the 3 par tommorow and see if we can improve our scores a bit before we hit a full course. :thumbsup:
