2014 Buyer's Guide Putters
Have a look at some of 2014's best
Bobby GraceKey Features: Milled of aircraft aluminum and with a stepped cavity design on top, this ain't your mama's Fat Lady.
Wow Factor: It's beautiful steel-blue finish and backweight design make this putter a cinch to swing. Really, it almost moves by itself. We were fans of the original Fat Lady, so it's always great to see a classic design come back.
Specs: Available in custom lengths, with or without backweighting.

BridgestoneKey Features: With an ultralight grip and shaft, the weight is mainly in the head and hosel. You only feel the putterhead during the stroke and will release the head for a truer roll that finds the target.
Wow Factor: We were pleasantly surprised by how different this feels. It's so featherweight up by your hands and incredibly easy to use.
Specs: The head weighs 360 grams; its balance point is less than 5 inches from the sole.

Cleveland GolfKey Features: Four Tour-proven designs that sport a slightly deep CNC-milling pattern on the face that softens impact feel for more control. A new and improved grip offers soft texture and responsive feedback.
Classic Collection HB
Wow Factor: They look fantastic with the deep and dark Black Pearl finish, and feel satisfying on the green, thanks to the heel-toe weighting. Distance control is about perfect.
Specs: Available in lengths of 33, 34 and 35 inches, with putterhead weights of 340 or 350 grams, depending on the model.
