Putters used by PGA Tour players ranked in the top 10 in strokes gained putting

Over the past decade, driving and iron play have taken on greater emphasis at the elite levels of golf. If a player can hit the ball a mile off the tee or produce laser-guided iron shots, he can create a lot of birdie chances, avoid making big numbers and contend on the PGA Tour.

Golfers who are not especially long off the tee or not among the most-elite iron players must make up the difference in other aspects of the game, and typically that means being an excellent putter.

Improvements in manufacturing techniques, the ability to use multiple materials and advancements in the study of how balls react off a putter’s face as they travel toward the hole have helped equipment companies make clubs that perform better. Putter fitting techniques also have improved, helping ensure that golfers have a putter ideally suited to their swing style and not just pleasing to their eyes.

Below is a list of the golfers who rank the highest in strokes gained putting – which means they have the largest edge over the competition based on the quality of their play on the greens – along with the putters they are using.
