When the shaft length, the lie-angle, and the loft of your putter each complement your setup position and stroke, it’ll become easier to make square and centered contact and launch the ball on your intended line. Therefore, you’ll putt better. Adjusting putter specifications is something I do every day. Here’s what I do: I adjust the shaft length so the student can comfortably get their eyes over the ball. This makes it easier to square the clubface to the aim-line at address. I adjust the lie angle so the putter sits flat on the ground. This makes it easier to make centered contact. I adjust the loft to better complement the student’s stroke. This makes it easier to effectively launch the ball out of its resting place and get it rolling forward as quickly as possible.
