The 10 Best Putters Under $100 (Pros & Cons of Each)

The putter is one of the last clubs in the bag that you can still get a great deal on. Finding a driver or a fairway wood under $100 is a bit of a challenge, but there are still some great putters out there that can help you improve your scoring and become a better player.

One of the most important keys to finding a great putter is paying attention to the type of putting stroke you have and the parts of the game that matter the most to you. If you’re good at alignment but struggle with feel, keep that in mind as you shop for the best inexpensive putters.

Here are the top 10 best putters under $100.

For golfers that just need a quick recommendation, here are our top choices:

 

Pinemeadow Golf PGX MB

Pinemeadow Golf PGX MB Putter

Equipped with a Pinemeadow Spider Grip which feels soft and is easy on the hands. Putter comes with a matching PGX black headcover.

Buy on Amazon

Pinemeadow is known for helping golfers get started in the game because of its low pricing and ease of use. What I love about the Pinemeadow Golf PGX MB putter is the fact that it has plenty of weight in the head. A heavy headed putter is great for fast greens and added control.

Each of the Pinemeadow Golf PGX MB putters comes with a Pindemadow Spider grip which is a little thicker than standard, has a soft feel, and will have good durability.

The black putter head makes it easier to see even on sunny days, or if you struggle to see whether or not it’s aligned properly, the Pinemeadow PGX MB is a perfect choice.

Pros

  • Has good distance control
  • Easy alignment
  • Soft grip that stays steady in the hands

Cons

  • Use headcover as paint from the club head is known to chip

 

Mazel Tour GS

MAZEL Tour GS Golf Putter

Features high MOI help golfers improve their speed control and get the ball closer to the hole regardless of the quality of strike. Advanced Alignment Top Lines make the alignment more accurate and easier.

Buy on Amazon

Mazel Golf has started to put some great options on the market for golfers that are interested in a fairly priced upgrade to their game. The Mazel Tour GS putter is a mallet type golf club with a low center of gravity, high performance grip, and an impressive feel for the pricing.

One of the things that helps this putter stand out is the easy alignment. There are top lines that make it very easy to square up the club head and have it positioned towards your target.

In addition, the club has a high MOI, so it will work for mid to high handicappers as well as beginners. The Mazel Tour GS does come with a headcover, and it’s standard at 34 inches.

Pros

  • Does not skip off the clubface, smooth roll
  • Low center of gravity
  • More consistent speed coming off the face of the club

Cons

  • Only comes in one length
  • The bat and blade style putters are not as good as the Tour GS Black Upgraded

 

Pinemeadow Golf Site 4

Pinemeadow Golf Site 4 Putter

Nice balance and lower Center of gravity. Headcover included.

Buy on Amazon

The Pinemeadow Golf Site 4 is a very easy-to-use mallet putter with an offset hosel and fair pricing. Don’t be surprised to see the Pinemeadow name on our list more than once. The technology from this brand is perfect for the budget putter shopper.

With the offset hosel found in the Golf Site 4, the putter head is quite forgiving and allows for a good option for straight back and straight through putting strokes. In addition, the putter face was made to be smooth and minimize skipping or jumping off the face.

Whether you are new to the game or need to change up the equipment this year, the Golf Site 4 should be on the list for mallet putter golfers.

Pros

  • Offset hosel
  • Site Plate technology for better alignment
  • Smooth and consistent face

Cons

  • Has a bit of a “ting” noise when you putt, not as smooth as PGX MB

 

Powerbilt RS X

Powerbilt RS-X M200 Mallet Golf Putter

Mallet head moves weight to the perimeters, increasing MOI. Very stable and forgiving, even on off-center hits. Grooved face and high MOI design puts forward spin on the ball, so it rolls straight and true.

Buy on Amazon

The Powerbilt RS X is a mallet putter with impressive forgiveness and alignment. With the Powerbilt RS X, you will get considerable stability at impact and be able to keep the ball on a straight and true line.

Some putters that look really similar to the Powerbilt RS X retail for hundreds of dollars. This club has a plumbers neck hosel making it a little easier to get your hands into the correct position.

One thing to be sure of when purchasing a lower priced golf putter is that the weighting is a good fit for your golf game. Keep in mind that if the weight is not the right fit for your putting stroke, you can always add a bit of lead tape.

However, for those with some erratic putts, the Powerbilt RS X is an excellent option to consider.

Pros

  • More forgiveness on off enter hits
  • Plumbers neck hosel
  • Face insert with a soft feel

Cons

  • Headcover does not come with it

 

Ray Cook Silver Ray Select SR 595

Ray Cook Golf Silver Ray Select SR595 Putter

Over-sized head provides more distance and control. Unique alignment feature. Soft mid-size grip improves comfort and feel.

Buy on Amazon

So far, almost all of the putters I’ve recommended are from manufacturers with a good history in the game. For the best cheap putters, it’s best to choose a brand that has a few successful models. The history of the Ray Cook putters stands out as being quite impressive.

With a few professional wins and plenty of professional appearances over the years, the mallet putters from Ray Cook stand out as some of the best. This is a high MOI putter that looks quite like the TaylorMade Spider.

With this face-balanced putter design, a straight back and straight through golf putter will find that the precision and accuracy are quite impressive. In addition, the feel is stable and solid with the SR 595 in your hands.

Pros

  • A unique looking putter head
  • Typically available in a few colors
  • Heavy enough for faster greens

Cons

  • Only comes standard in 35 inches

 

Tour Edge Golf Bazooka Pro 7

Tour Edge Golf Bazooka Pro-7 Putter

High MOI design helps golfers create a more pure and fluid putting stroke.

Buy on Amazon

One of the first companies I recommend to golfers on a budget is Tour Edge. This brand does such an excellent job of making clubs perform and react like high end golf clubs for a price that is considerably more fair than average.

This club has seven different head styles, but the Pro 7 stands out as one of the best. The high MOI design helps golfers create a more pure and fluid putting stroke. Keeping the ball on the proper line will be considerably easier to do.

In addition, the thick jumbo putting grip will keep your hands out of the putting stroke and allow the larger muscles to handle the majority of the putting stroke. Expect very little head rotation with this putter and a softer touch.

Pros

  • Effortless alignment
  • Face insert with micro grooves
  • High MOI design
  • A thick grip keeps wrists from breaking

Cons

  • Larger club head can take some time to get used to

 

Wilson Harmonized M1

WILSON Harmonized M1 Golf Putter

Eye catching vertical seam grip is designed with a slightly larger diameter to improve feel. All new cosmetic for 2013 and the Harmonized Putters provide responsive feel and precise accuracy on and around the green.

Buy on Amazon

Wilson Harmonized wedges have always been one of our favorite choices for a value-priced wedge. It turns out that the Harmonized M1 putters also offer some really great performance for the higher handicap players and beginners.

If you are looking for a semi-mallet head shape, stability at impact, and impressive consistency, the Harmonize M1 could be a good option for you.

This putter does have a face insert to help improve the soft feel at impact. And the balanced feel will make off center hits much less noticeable. I like this option best for high handicappers and beginners looking for a more classic style putter.

Pros

  • Semi mallet head shape is not too large
  • Balanced feel for forgiveness
  • Midsize golf grip
  • Easy alignment design

Cons

  • Some golfers say it feels a little soft

 

MacGregor Golf MacPutt 003

MACGREGOR Golf MACPUT003 Golf Putter

Attractive Looking Mallet Headed Macgregor Golf Putter With High MOI Design. Macgregor ARC Tech Face Milling Offers Improved Roll And Distance Control. Alignment Aid For Easier Ball Alignment.

Buy on Amazon

The MacGregor Golf MacPutt 003 is an extended mallet head design that falls well below the $100 price limit. This particular model has more technology built in than quite a few of our other choices on this list.

The top of the club has a long alignment aid to make it easier to set up and ensure you are heading directly to your target. In addition, the model comes in both a left handed and right handed version.

I was impressed with the distance control of the MacPutt 003 for the price that it is offered. If you have some idea of what it takes to hit a putt solidly, the MacGregor putter could help round things out with consistency and an overall impressive feel.

Pros

  • High MOI design
  • Easy alignment technology
  • Good options for mid handicappers
  • Impressive technology to provide better alignment and feel

Cons

  • Not the softest option on the market

 

Possot Golf Putter

The Possot Golf Putter is one of the best blade style putters on the market. These blade style putters have an impressive feel and sound and come standard in a 34 inch shaft. Each one also has a lightweight pistol grip that is easy to hold and will keep your hands in place as you putt.

What I like best about this putter is how it looks from the top down. It has modern coloring and feel but all the classic shaping of a true blade. Your alignment lines won’t be as impressive with a putter like this, but that is to be expected when you switch from a mallet to a blade.

For a golfer with an arc style putting stroke looking for something that improves overall consistency in the game for a very fair price, the Possot is an excellent option to consider.

Pros

  • High MOI
  • Classic blade style look
  • Black finish for a modern appearance
  • Lightweight and comfortable grip

Cons

  • Brand name is not as well established for warranty-related issues

 

GoSports GS1 Blade Style Putter

GoSports GS1 Tour Golf Putter

Putt like the Pros with the classically designed GS1 Blade Putter. Designed for right handed golfers of all abilities. Looks and plays like putters 10x the cost. Features a Stainless Steel Head with a milled face for optimal contact and roll off the face.

Buy on Amazon

The GoSports GS1 Blade Style Putter is a new release to the market, but at first glance, I was impressed with the classic design and modern features. The stainless steel head actually has a milled face, something that is quite hard to find in the sub-$100 range.

With the GoSports GS1 Blade Style Putter, expect a fat grip with a 1.3” diameter that will take your hands out of it and allow the larger muscles to do what they need to do.

In addition, the club comes with a cover to ensure it stays as shiny and new as it is right now.

Pros

  • Good looking classic blade
  • Fat grip to help with consistency
  • Comes with headcover

Cons

  • They are not as stable at impact as some other putters are

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions about the best putters under $100.

What are good affordable putters?

Some of the best affordable putters on the market are those made by Pinemeadow, Wilson, and Ray Cook. This brand seems to always keep budget in mind without sacrificing performance.

What is the proper putter length for my height?

The proper length of a putter for your height can be determined by a putter fitting or by using a fitting club chart. The standard putter size is 34” for those with average height. If you are 6’1” or taller, the 35 inch putter is likely a good idea. Those shorter than 5’6” may want to look at 33 inch putters.

What is the easiest putter to putt with?

Most golfers find the face-balanced mallet-style putter to be the easiest putter style to work with. This putter can stay square to the target on the backswing and follow through to ensure that the ball rolls toward the hole on the proper line.

Is it worth spending money on a putter?

The putter is the only club in the bag that gets the golf ball into the hole. It’s more fun to spend money on a new driver, but it’s more important to spend money on a new putter. Think about how many putts you take in a round and why the putter you play with is so important.
