As with any golf club, a putter has a sweet spot. It’s an area in the center of the club where the ball will feel its best when hit from there. Hitting the ball in the center of the putter face is extremely important, as the ball will come off the putter the same straight way every time. This makes it a lot easier to judge the distance and consistently make accurate putts. By hitting the ball off-center of the putting face, it becomes impossible to judge how the ball will react and the distance it will travel.
