I feel like 31.5 seems to be my sweet spot as far as putter lengths go. I’m 5 ft 11 and have long arms, just seems to be the perfect length for me. Anyone else benefit from a shorter putter length?

    I'm 5'.6" and like a 32" putter, but a 33" putter is easier on my back. Just sent in a SC NP 2 Mid-Slant for customize.

    I’m 6’-4” and use for the most part a 33.5”. I feel having to bend down over it really helps me focus on line and path, while keeping my arms more compact and eliminating unnecessary movement in the stroke.

    Definitely agree with getting over the ball to focus on line. 5'10" here and every putter I've had success with in the past 12 years has been around 33". Current gamer is a Studio Design that plays at 32.75"

    Been playing 34" for a while now. 5'9"
    Just had a putter fitting at Ping Canada. Fitter proved to me the many reasons 32" fits me better.
    Was going to buy a new putter (S2 Tyne 4) but after trying my Scotty at 32" I hit the sweet spot much more often now, accuracy has gone up and so has feel because putts are struck much more solidly now.
    Best $30 I've spent in a long while. LOL

    5'6" tall (oxymoron), with all putters cut down to 32.5" and either head weighted or butt weighted to adjust to my feel!

    I am going to get fitted soon, but I feel like a 32" putter would be better for me than a 33". I am 5'5" with 30.5" wrist to floor. I grip way down on a 33" putter. My only concern with the 32" putter is swingweight.

    5'7" here... I have all of my putters at 33" and I even choke down a little. Anything longer I always seem to pull.

    5'6" and all my putters from 31-32". must have a putter that you can add weight to otherwise the feel just isn't right.

    6’4” here and actually rotate between either a 33” or a 36”. Those to lengths seem to help me line up the ball better- everything in between is a mess. Also key to note, the head design is different between the two I rotate/game, so the length and the design for each are a big help.
