    So just recently I was "fitted" into a putter based upon my stroke and the fitter suggested I play with a putter with 1* of loft vs the traditional 4* in most putters. I guess because I tend to add loft to the putter at impact. So in order to putt the ball with less skidding & more of a roll, I would need to decrease the loft on my putter by 3*.

    So my question is, can this be done to my putter? Can I send it back to Titleist or Scotty Cameron & get it set at 1* of static loft? Is it possible to take it to a local club repair shop in my area to do it? Club Champion maybe?

    Or if I buy a new Scotty, can the loft be altered to 1*?

    I want to see what my options are. Cathi or Titleist Team ... any suggestions?

    I think on the Scotty Cameron spec sheets it details how much change you can make on loft and lie. Typically they are +/-1° for loft and +/- 2° lie.

    Hope that helps. Would suggest you call / contact Scotty customer service at below

    Thanks I'll go that route & see what pans out.

    I'm sure Pro's can get whatever they want done to any club? SO why can't the general public?

    You can get to 1* of loft. I went through a putter fitting and was fit for 1* loft based on the way i was using a forward press with my old stroke. Any local PGA SS should be able to do it, but I had mine done when my Scotty was sent in for customization.
  5. You cant change the "loft" of a putter without grinding the face... if you place a putter flat on a table, and stare down the length of the face, you will understand.

    but you can change to shaft disposition/lie by bending the neck.... carefully, depending on the material of the putter.

    you can change the loft just by changing the position of your hands. Plus the position of the ball. Having the ball a little big forward increases loft. Hands forward decreases loft. Experiment.
