Putting without the weights

  1. I have Newport 2, which I love. Towards the end of our season in the NC mountains, our native Poa Annua greens get fast as lightning and my putter is just too heavy. I went to 5 gram weights but am wondering how it would affect the putter — stability, twisting, etc. — if I removed both weights? Look forward to hearing from the experts. Thanks. Ralph

    It's 100% up to you. So much of putting has to do with what you feel is comfortable, go ahead and try it out without the weights and see how you like it. The putter head should still be balanced without the 5g weights. I'm still using a Studio Stainless Newport 2 from 2003 and the head only weighs 330g. It works for me, but but buddy who has a Futura thinks it's too light. Different strokes for different folks!
