Putters and Rules

Recommended Posts

Many players will putt right handed and tap putts in with the back of their putters left handed. I think Notah Begay putted right and left handed with his putter which was flat on both sides, essentially making it into a club usable on both sides.  What about actually constructing a true double sided putter?  Would this be considered an extra club in your bag?  I seem to be able to putt (just as lousy) on either side with my previous flat stick.  I can't use the back of my newer putter as it is round.  Your thoughts or rules interpretation on a double sided putter?

Your question makes zero sense. There already are two sided putters and have been for a very long time.

Maybe the way I worded it makes zero sense.   I was thinking more about constructing a double two headed insert putter out of lightweight aluminum to counter the extra weight, not a flat blade that has been around for years. Think of two putter heads bridged in the center with a frame that face opposite directions and is center shafted. (think small mallets joined like a Siamese twin back to back.). This is what I was trying to describe.  Probably not a great idea, but I do fabricate wood and metal and thought it might be fun, just probably not legal (?).

 Would you have two shafts?

 

Im trying to imagine how you would deal with offset? 

 

Anything thicker than a bullseye with one shaft, and the other "face" is going to have a TON of offset.

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to describe, but it sounds like you just want to superglue two newport/anser styles (one LH and one RH) together and put a shaft down the center.

 

I guess you could do it, but you'd have some serious issues with that shaft being well behind the face on either side...

  Actually I was thinking of an upside down "Y" on the bottom of the shaft. Each "arm" connects to each head making the offset.   Crazy, I know.   You are probably correct that mitigating the shaft issue is a major problem.   When I have time to get on my CAD program, I will draw it up. Thanks for your thoughts.  Like anything in life, it is really cheap to dream, but can be expensive to execute.

I'm not sure a club with two shafts is legal that said I'd love to see a drawing of what's in your head because it's still not clear to me lol

      1. City, State?
