Looking for a Yes Putter - Which is the best model to go for?
It was a Yes putter which brought the fairly awesome C-Groove to golf.
Their designs are based on the work of the legendary British putting teacher and
putter engineer, Harold
Swash, and boy, oh boy, do they roll the ball sweetly.
on a Yes putter...
Some Background on Yes Golf Putters - What is the C-Groove?
The C-Groove is a half-moon shaped set of grooves cut into the face each of which has a sharp top edge and, below that, a face which slants downwards as it recesses into the putter face. The result of striking the ball with these grooves is that the ball is encouraged to start rolling "end over end" quicker than with any other putter face.
The C-Groove was designed by putter designer and putting guru Harold Swash who has coached many European Tour based players, including: Padraig Harrington, Ian Woosnam, Henrik Stenson, and Miguel Angel Jimenez.
Swash and Yes claim to have high speed video and independent tests which prove that their putters get the ball rolling quicker than any other putter on the market, and we at Best-Putter.com believe them - you do certainly notice a difference when you use one of these putters. Just how significant the difference is when you putt on real greens isn't quite so clear.
In our opinion there are two reasons why the whole world hasn't converted to the C-Groove. Firstly the early models weren't as attractive to look at as putters made by other big manufacturers. Although the company has recently introduced some more attractive toe-hang putters recently we've found that they still lack a bit of refinement - for our money their best looking design is the Tracy 2.
The other reservation we have is the hard feel you get from the face of the Yes Putters we've tested. They don't compare at all favourably with insert or milled faced putters.
If you're not bothered by a hard feel off the clubface, then by take a look at Yes Putters. The roll really is spectacularly good.
