Top 10 Putters in PGA

A good putter is a golfer who has a penchant for gently striking the gold ball to make it roll across the green into the hole. The best putters often go as far as achieving about 98% of their putts from within 5 feet, and 90% of the putts from within 10 feet. This incredible skill helps a player be a better golfer, considering the how he gets better at scoring and the number of strokes they save per round. Taking a look at the stats of the past 5 years can reveal the leaders in the strokes gained-putting, and the average of the number of strokes these players pick up on field during that time, help to further confirm the same. Here is the list of the Top 10 Putters in PGA. Let’s take a look.

It is a good idea to take a look at the performances of the golfers across the span of 5 seasons. A single season’s statistics may be not sufficient, since a player may get injured or mired during an ongoing season. It is only by the end of 2015 that we can confirm whether this list remains the same, or changes in terms of the ranks of the players. Some of the players may even slip off the list all together, taking into account the fact that new putters can climb into the list.
