One of the biggest problems golfers face is getting the putter properly lined up, which makes an already difficult task even tougher.  The makers of the PNP Putter have gone to great lengths to address this issue, without sacrificing the overall quality.  PGA Professional Todd Kolb got a chance to try out this sleek new PNP putter to see if it lived up to the billing.

Hey golfers, PGA Teaching Professional Todd Kolb here with another pro review; and today I’m taking a look at the PNP Putter.  Now anytime I look at a putter, there’s a couple key things I’m looking for in terms of whether or not it’s a product that I’d recommend for my students.  First of all is the feel and how does it actually feel in my hands when I’m rolling putts.  So a couple key things I want to focus in on here in terms of the design of the putter.  It’s got a little thicker grip than normal; and I personally like that from a teaching standpoint, because I believe the putter should be more in the palms versus in the fingers.  So I like that feature.

The thicker grip helps keep the PNP putter in the palms of the hands

The real key to this PNP putter—and kind of what they hang their hat on—is this aiming device up here on the top.  If you want to get the ball to go in the hole, of course, you have to aim the putter properly, i.e. point and putt (which is where the PNP Putter gets its name).  It’s got a nice clear line on the top; it’s separated from the face, so it’s very easy to line up.  I noticed that right away.

The detached aiming device makes alignment even easier

A couple other key features that you’re looking for in a putter that I like about this particular one is the weighting of it.  First of all, the PNP Putter has got a face balanced putter design to it.  And I think that’s the best type of design for the average golfer, where you can swing the putter basically straight back and through.  It’s got toe and heel weighting, and of course some weighting on the back of it to create a nice, consistent flow through the motion.  The face is nice and soft; I hit a few putts with it.  It came off nice and easy, and had a nice roll to it.

So if you’re looking for a putter—you’re looking for some performance, you’re looking for a feel, you’re looking for something that you can get started on the right line—the PNP putter does that.  It’s one that I really like, and I’m going to actually strongly recommend you try it out.  If you want more information about this PNP putter, be sure to visit their website.
