Putters come in several shapes and sizes, but if you need something that’s more forgiving, then you might want to consider something a bit bigger. So what are the best mallet putters 2023 has to offer?

With their larger heads, mallets are popular because of the stability and balance that they offer players. As a general rule, they also tend to have more prominent alignment features than you’d find on a blade, such as longer lines. As used by some of the top players in the game, they aren’t just aimed at high handicappers, although they could help you if you are struggling with your putting.
