Check out this YouTube link and you’ll see a couple types of STX putters available. Mine is 43.5″ long, and I am 6’0″ tall. I would not recommend a longer putter, as you need to be over your ball with your chin close to the top of the putter.



  1. Don’t you mean 43.5? I’m 5’11” and would have to bend down quite a bit to set my chin over 34.5 putter.

    PS. I own 2 STX SYNC bow tie putters. A 44″ with black insert and 43″ with red. I also have a STX SYNC SS7 43″ I plan on auctioning at least two of them soon unless someone is interested. Feel free to contact me.

  2. Randy, your putters look more like 40”. They come up to your belly button.

  3. Hi Randy
    I have been putting side saddle for 35 years; I use the ping B90 at 46 inches. Lately I have experimented with a 34 inch long B90 using it like Bryson Dechambeau and I think that Bryson’s method may work better for me then my old method which is like you putt side saddle. Have you ever used the Ping B90 putter, if you have what did you think of it?


  4. Thank-you so much for this blog, Randy, & greetings from The Netherlands (British expat).
    I tried side-saddle using a long L2 putter a couple of years back without success, although conceptually I loved it : looking back, I think trying to look at the hole whilst putting, not the ball (as recommended by Lateral Line), was adding two big changes… one too many !
    Inspired by your videos, I recently found an immaculate STX like yours (very upright shaft) for just $20 (marked as “unknown former belly putter”) & really like it. However, whilst trying different grips and postures, I am finding that I prefer Bryson D’s former side saddle grip/setup : it very effectively clamps the arms together as one unit, making a single plane putting stroke very natural (for me, at least).
    My putter had been cut down to 36″ & whilst I may extend the shaft to perhaps 40″ (I too am 6ft tall), I find with Bryson’s setup a shorter shaft may be beneficial.

    • 2 years a LOTS of experimentation later…. I am now favouring my Ping B90 putters, two of which I acquired earlier this year. I need two because I often fly from Amsterdam to London and try to fit in a round of golf with borrowed clubs, but as I now putt side saddle, I keep a suitable putter over there. Finding a second B90 was much easier than finding a second STX : I like them both, although their weighting is different & the B90 has a wider sweetspot and can be more forgiving.

      The other thing is that I now putt left foot forward, ie. the opposite of Randy, & more upright (actually, one of my B90 is still full, long-putter length – not yet sure if I will keep it this way). I dropped the Bryson face-forward style awhile back.

      Thanks to Stan above for the B90 tip 🙂

      I still have my STX – it’s a fantastic putter – but will probably sell it locally next spring.
