It comes as no surprise that Tiger Woods is the best putter EVER!
What does come as a surprise to me is that Bobby Locke, long thought of as the best putter in the world in the ’40s, the ’50s, and even into the ’60s, is so far behind Tiger Jack. (Do you think Golf Digest has a bias towards Americans?)
The one common denominator with all of these players is that they did not become great putters by chance. All of them put long, backbreaking hours on the putting green to get to where they are today in the standings. Putting does not require strength or flexibility, so go to the putting green tomorrow and start yourself on the road to becoming an excellent putter!
Thanks so much to Golf Digest for putting this fascinating set of statistics together!
We Spoke to more than 100 players on the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tours to name the best putters among them and the best overall since 1950 (five for each). They came back with a question of their own. Do you mean who putts the best day in and day out? and Is it the most clutch putter? and The one who never three-putts? The answer is all of the above. The player who cleans up five-footers on Sunday has to get a nod, as should the most consistent putter over the full season. Here’s who the players chose.
- Tiger Woods.
- Jack Nicklaus.
- Brad Faxon
- Steve Stricker
- Bobby Locke.
