Center Shafted

By

STX Envision TR Putter

A center-shafted putter: One in which the shaft connects to the center of the clubhead behind the face.

Definition: "Center shafted" refers to the way the shaft enters the clubhead of a putter. Some putters have shafts that connect to the clubhead near the heel, others have shafts that connect to the clubhead near the center, more or less equidistant between the toe and heel. Those putters are said to be "center shafted."

The term would also apply to any other clubs with this shaft configuration, but putters are the only clubs in which center-shafting is now employed.
