Putting is one of the most important aspects of golf. A good putter can make all the difference in your game. With so many putters on the market, it can be hard to know which one to choose. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the best new putters.

TaylorMade Spider GTX

TaylorMade’s Spider GTX Putter, an addition to the popular Spider range, merges features from the Spider Tour and Spider X models, creating a highly advanced and stable putter. The True Path Alignment, a white strip down the center, helps with aiming and hitting the ball out of the centre of the face. The PureRoll2 technology, featuring a firm insert for increased topspin, enhances roll quality. The putter’s design includes a deep center of gravity, adding stability, and a visible 154g bar for reduced face rotation. The lightweight aluminum cap on the top facilitates weight distribution.

TaylorMade Spider GTX White #3 - Overhead viewThe Spider GTX offers various color options, including a customizable MySpider configuration. In terms of aesthetics, the classic Spider red colorway, though eye-catching, may not suit everyone’s taste. The True Path alignment and stability bar enhance visual appeal and performance. The PureRoll insert, while consistent, received mixed reviews for its firm feel and limited feedback.

In terms of performance, the GTX maintains the Spider reputation for stability and confidence, with a forgiving head size and high MOI. The mid-sized SuperStroke grip and pistol shape contribute to a comfortable feel and assist in maintaining a straighter putting path. The GTX excels on long putts, offering stability and improving overall consistency.

Despite personal preferences regarding feel and sound, the Spider GTX Putter impresses as a stable and forgiving option, particularly beneficial for golfers seeking consistent putting performance and alignment assistance. The updated alignment design proves advantageous, making it a valuable addition to the Spider range for those who prioritize stability and consistency in their putting game.

TaylorMade TP Reserve B11

The TaylorMade TP Reserve B11 Putter is a premium putter added to TaylorMade’s already spectacular TaylorMade TP Reserve B11putter repertoire. Crafted from 303 stainless steel, this putter features a classic shape with a new “R” logo denoting “Reserve” and subtle forest green accents, giving it a premium appearance. The sole incorporates removable weights, enhancing customization.

In terms of sound and feel, the TP Reserve B11 putter doesn’t have the traditional TaylorMade face insert. In its place, there are machined-in grooves, which actually gives it a reasonably firm feel at impact. The sound is a quiet “tap,” with variations based on strike location. Centered strikes yield an exceptional feel.

This is definitely a great addition for TaylorMade in the premium putter category.

Scotty Cameron Newport 2

Scotty Cameron’s Super Select Newport 2 Putter is part of the new Super Select range, designed to save weight, resulting in a 10-gram weight reduction. The Newport 2 is an old classic. It looks great at address Scotty Cameron's Super Select Newport 2 Putterand doesn’t have any fancy bells and whistles providing more feedback and alignment assistance. The putter features lighter aluminum sole plates, enhancing off-center stability by dispersing weight to the perimeter.

On the course, the Newport 2 impresses with its classic profile, offering forgiveness and aiding alignment while keeping the looks simple.

The textured Pistolini Plus grip, though slim, complements the putter’s generous size, although a mid-size grip might be more suitable for some users.

The face incorporates a new milling technique, producing a gentle acoustic response on short putts and a louder, more feedback-driven sound on longer putts. The L-neck hosel creates substantial toe hang, promoting flow and rotation during the stroke. Despite initial discomfort with the grip, I quickly adapted and experienced consistent putting within 10 feet.

Odyssey Tri-Hot 5K Double Wide Putter 

Odyssey’s Tri-Hot 5K Double Wide putter reimagines traditional blade shapes, combining a classic feel with mallet-like forgiveness. The Double Wide model features a classic blade look with a wider back section, it Odyssey's Tri-Hot 5K Double Wide Putterhas a red and silver Stroke Lab shaft, black stainless steel front, and a charcoal grey body housing removable weights on the sole. The overall aesthetic is expertly balanced, with moderate branding and a stylish, magnetic-closure head cover.

The Tri-Hot 5K Double Wide putter has the original White Hot insert, providing a soft medium-volume “thud” upon strike. Despite the high MOI and soft feel, the putter offers surprising feedback on mishits. When testing I could definitely feel the mallet-like forgiveness.

Customization options include removable weights in the sole and an upgraded Stroke Lab shaft with a shortened steel section for improved weight distribution.

Odyssey AI-ONE Seven Slant

The Odyssey Ai-ONE putters represent a cutting-edge fusion of traditional looks with AI-designed technology, enhancing consistency and feel on the greens. My favourite out of the range is the #7 slant The Odyssey Ai-ONE #7S Putterneck, which easily fits into the top putters of 2023.

The Ai-ONE insert, combining aluminum and White Hot Urethane, has a firm feel off the face promoting consistent ball speed.

It has a new SL 90 shaft, an all-steel design with counterbalancing in the butt end. Interchangeable weights allow customization, offering a wide range of head weights between 340 and 370 grams, but the standard model felt great to me. The lineup includes various head shapes and hosel options, with additional releases planned for 2024.

The Odyssey Ai-ONE putters showcase groundbreaking technology for improved speed control without compromising traditional aesthetics, making them a compelling choice for golfers seeking enhanced putting performance.
