The GP putter was design for putting facing the hole. We have left or right handed GP putter. The GP putter head has a weight of 400 grams also it’s 3 inches and 1/16 wides this is why we are able to putt with the putter shaft straight down.This gives us the perfect pendulum putting stroke. Every GP putter are made for your heigh if you are 5 feet tall or 6 feet tall you don’t get the same size GP putter.
Yes we have a few players including me that play golf the opposite side. I’m right handed but play golf left handed but because putting with the GP putter is basically on handed putting stroke I putt right handed. Everything I do with one hand is right handed and everything I do with two handed is left handed like playing hockey or batting in baseball is left handed for me. But I trow the baseball right handed. I’m originally from Canada and we do have a lot of golfer that are in that situation like me so make sure you select the proper handed.
The face on chipping golf club is for around the green. This chipping technique is about being precise and require no power. The golf club has 79 degree of lie, 42 degree of loft and is 38 inches long (most likely like your 8 iron but the lie angle is the BIG difference)
