Looking for a C-Groove Putter?
Even from our independent viewpoint, the C-Groove putter is a fairly awesome piece of kit.
The roll you get from the C-Groove is second to none in our opinion, thanks to the genius of the design. It's the brainchild of putting guru Harold Swash
. Swash is a UK based putter designer and putting teacher who has been working with top players for decades. Before turning his mind to golf, he was a leading UK engineer and the C-Groove is a revolutionary approach to an age-old question - how do I get my putts to roll truer?

Yes Tracy 2 (C-Groove)
In our view the classiest Yes putter - anser-style head with the amazing C-Groove for a terrific roll.
Yes Natalie (C-Groove)
Futuristic design with amazing roll and super long aimline.
Yes Donna (C-Groove)
Wide bodied anser-style head with the amazing C-Groove for a terrific roll.
The least attractive of the Yes belly putters - although that's just our opinion
Good looking blade putter which won Jim Furyk a $10 million bonus in 2010
Yes Victoria II
Straightforward D shaped mallet with C-Groove roll
Futuristic design, with excellent aim-bar behind hitting surface
A straightforward heel and toe design with great roll from the C-Groove
Very Pleasing on the eye, and has perhaps the best feel of any Yes putter
The Meteoric Rise of C-Groove Putters
Ever since their introduction to tour play, Yes putters have taken off in a big way. When Retief Goosen won the US Open in 2001 with one of their first models it helped the brand get worldwide exposure and since then a good number of players have chosen to use a Yes C-Groove Putter.
Like most of the putters introduced to the market in the first decade of the 2000s, almost all of Yes' first range were face balanced. Since 2009 Yes responded to tour player feedback to introduce a selection of toe hang putters with the C-Groove.
One of the best stories surronding the Yes brand involved Jim Furyk's victory in the 2010 FedEx Cup which earned him a record prize pot of $11.35 million. The American won that event with a Yes Sophia putter he had picked up in a discount bucket for $39. What a return!
Although Furyk is not a Yes staff player (the company has little budget for tour player sponsorship), the design of the C-Groove face of the putter was so clear for everyone watching on TV to see that Furyk's club sponsor had no choice but to allow Yes to put out a press statement about the story.
At Best-Putter.com we love the roll you get from Yes putters, but we have our reservation about the hard feel from the putter faces. Putters from Scotty Cameron, Odyssey and in the Ping amongst others have the edge over Yes in terms of softness of feel.
Nevertheless we recommend you give Yes a look!
