I am looking for a new putter and i am noticing that a lot of putters claim to make the ball roll sooner, my question is not whether it happens or not but rather whether most golfers even want this to happen. We have all come so far with the ball skidding the first few feet of its roll, and most amatuers already dont read enough break in their putts, and needless to say the ball only takes the break after its rolling so rolling it sooner makes the shape of the arc we are all so used to seeing change significantly. Also most of us do not get to play on perfectly smooth putting surfaces and I belive that the more time the ball spends on the grass the greater chance there is of the ball being moved off of your intended line by imperfections in the green. My point is that the ball taking a more natural path wont make as many putts as the ball taking a path more like the one you intended. Am I crazy? help me out here guys.
