A center shafted putter is exactly what it seems to be - a putter where the shaft inserts into (more or less) the center of the head. They are usually face balanced, so they will best suit a straight-back-straight-through stroke. If your putting stroke is more of an in-square-in stroke, then you may well be better off with an anser style putter or a blade putter.

Titleist Bullseye - the original center shafted putter

center shafted putterProbably the most recognisable center shafted putter is the Bullseye, shown here. This putter won hundreds of professional events between the 1950s and 1990s. There are now many different shapes of putter which have the shaft in the center as you can see from the pictures below.

Beautiful though Bullseye shaped putters are, they are most definitely not for beginners, because of their extremely small sweetspots. If you're not sure whether this style of putter is for right you, click here for our guide to choosing the right putter for your stroke.
