Do you have 34 and 35 length putters in play?

I’m 5’11 and every putter fitting I’ve had 34” was the number suggested.   A lot depends on arm length though…

I'm 5'9" and prefer my putters just a hair under 34". 33.5-33.75", to be exact.

 

I had a Ping Heppler with an adjustable shaft and landed on the 33.75" number after a bunch of trial and error.

I'm 6'3" and using 34.5" to 35" depending on head weight. Liking a heavier head I can only go so long but I have really long arms so I'm in a sweet spot there.

I’m 6’2” and I prefer 35”. 
I have used a 34” with good results. 
I’ve heard the correct length affects the golfer’s eye line and thus accuracy but I didn’t notice a difference between the 34” and 35” as far as holing putts or misses. For me, the hosel type and grip seemed to be stronger factors regarding success.

I've used the same 34" putter for 15 years. No rotation.

33.75” is my length as well.  I have a 34” backup and don’t mind choking down 1/4”.

I do not believe an adult  player's height has much relevance to putter length. It's about trying different lengths, head weights, and grip weights to learn which combination provides the consistently best roll/ putts made.

I use both 34" and 35" and grip down on the 35". When one misbehaves I switch and don't really notice any difference.

I am 5'11" and find 34.5" to be perfect for me.

As 34.5" tends to be a custom size, when I buy a new putter it is 34".

 

All my 35"'s have been shortened to 34.5" with lead tape added to the sole to preserve the overall balance.

5'9" and always played a 34" until I recently got fitted using the SAM lab.

I'm putting better than ever since going to 33".

My eyes were 2"  inside the ball before and now they're over or fractionally inside.

Putts are really starting on line w/ less pulls.

Do a fitting, it was a eye opener for me.

I’ve always been fit to 34 but recently have switched back to 35.
 

Something I don’t see mentioned a lot is that length has an effect on your tempo. I feel like I get fast and flippy with shorter putters, and I have a longer, slower tempo when I go longer. I always choke down a little bit too though. 
 

Longer is also a lot easier on the back when you practice.

I have the Odyssey Sabertooth and have played with it since it came out. Love it. It is a 34. It came with a stock grip and when the Super Stroke putter grips came out and all the hype they had I put one on years ago.With it on I was losing faith with my putter.  I thought maybe it was time for a new putter but thought on a whim and thinking what happened maybe I should put a stock grip back on. Well I did and that was the problem. It must have changed the swing weight on the putter. Back to putting great again. Moral of the story is it might not be the length of the putter but the putter grip. Give it a try as it worked for me.

I'm 6'3" with longer arms and feel most comfortable with 35" or 34.75" putters.  The length of my current putters are the latter...

Do you find any difference in your putting results with either length?

It depends on your height, leg legnth and arm length and also how you set up to the ball. You'd be surprised how much it can differ from the other. putting-stance-let-arms-drop-down.png.a2e74166292a1ffb8e0caaaa307caed6.png
