I have had 2 putter fits in the last year where we got down to a 67 degree lie angle and the toe was still sitting up and the fitter couldn't provide a flatter putter. The only putter I can find online that would work is the cure putter. So my question is, does anyone know where I can try a cure putter or have a putter fitting with a putter flatter than 67 degrees?

I think Ping's flattest lie angle (gold dot) is 66*.

Thanks Count.

I haven't found anything that specifies what Ping consider standard but they do list some of their putters as +/- 4 degrees so you could be right. I would like to know what my dynamic lie angle really is.

I have a custom made Lajosi centre shafted mallet at 67 deg which I could part with.

Just get yours bent flat to suit and that will be a starting point.

Good luck with trying to find an off the shelf standard 67 degree :)

I have a Seemore that I bought at 68 deg, which has options.

Also have a Fisher putter that has the capability of loft and lie being adjusted.

I've already had two workshops have a crack at bending my putter and they both said it wasn't moving easily and they didn't want to snap it. They were able to get it to 67 1/2 dgrees and my last putter fit on sam putt lab showed the dynamic lie was still 2 1/2 degrees toe up and the ball being struck on the heel side of centre. 

I wasn't expecting to find a standard putter with a flattened lie angle. I was hoping someone might know of a fitter with an unlimited range of fitting euipment.I realise my specs are very unusual.

Thankyou for the reply.

If you wanted to get an idea of whether the flatter PING putters were an option, you could go into a retail store that stocks PING such as HOG or Drummonds. They should have an adjustable PING putter that you can try out (I know HOG Flinders St do).

 

I'm no expert, but I'd reckon if it sat properly at address it would be pretty right. If your lie angle changes significantly when you putt, you would have to have a pretty funky putting stroke.
