Is your putter helping or hurting your game? If you are in the market for a new putter in 2017, this is for you.

No more guesswork. All the major brands tested.

We get rid of the all the marketing and make it about one thing: Performance.

With our proprietary scoring system called Stroked Gained (SG18) you will now know
the amount of strokes a putter would be expected to change your score over an 18-hole round.

The MyGolfSpy Difference

2017's Most Wanted is the largest, fully independent putter test conducted in the industry.

This year's test took place at the MGS Test Facility. 20 testers participated. 22 blade-style putters were tested. Testing took more than 120 hours to complete with 13,298 total putts recorded.

All testers used Bridgestone B330-RX golf balls. The natural stroke type of each tester was identified using the iPing Putting App.

Our goal, as always, remains to empower you, the consumer, with accurate and reliable data and analysis that will help you identify the best putter for your game.

If you are in the market for a new blade putter, this guide is for you.

Strokes Gained Scoring (SG18)

sg18

Our proprietary scoring system is called Stroked Gained 18 (SG18). This is our metric for quantifying putter performance.

SG18 combines the power of the Strokes Gained methodology with the simplicity of an 18 hole score. It's a measurement that defines how a given putter could be expected to impact your overall score relative to the average putter in the field.

EXAMPLE:  SG18 value reflects the number of strokes a putter would be expected to change your score over an 18 hole span. For example, a putter with a SG18 value of 1.00, could be expected to save you 1 stroke per 18 holes or 2 strokes over 2 rounds when compared to the field average.

How We Test

Each putter is put through a comprehensive test. This includes a series of putts from distances of 5, 10 and 20 feet. The equivalent of 18 holes is played with each putter, and by each golfer in the test. The total number of putts required to finish each hole is recorded and at the completion of the test, a Strokes Gained 18 value (SG18) is calculated for each putter.

Here are the complete parameters of this year's test:

  • Number of Testers: 20
  • Handicap Range: +1-18
  • Test Location: MyGolfSpy Testing Facility
  • Balls Used: 2017 Bridgestone B330-RX
  • Distances Assessed: 5, 10, and 20 Feet
  • Holes Completed: 18 (per tester)
  • Total Putts in Test: 13,298
