Huntington Beach Soft Premier
WHAT IT DOES: The slightly different shapes and hosels target different strokes (more straight on the No. 8, more arcing on No. 3 and No. 4). But although plenty of putters use a milling pattern on the face, these models use a specific pattern for each head. The milling helps normalize distance across the face, but it’s different because each head has a slightly different stability on off-center hits. The face-milling works with the head stability for more consistent roll.
WHY WE LIKE IT: The Cleveland team goes a step further to individualize performance with this putter than others at three times the cost. It offers two grip styles catered to your stroke: one standard for straighter strokes and one thinner for strokes with more arc.
