Here are the putters every American player is using at the Ryder Cup

As important as driving the ball will be this week at the 2021 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits, putting is always king. A hot putter can crush the soul of an opponent in match play, just like a cold putter can cost a player the match. When it comes down to it, putting can make or break Team USA in the team event this week.

Most golfers know that club fitting is extremely important to their performance on the golf course. But did you know putter fitting can be just as important? Factors such as length, hosel configuration, toe hang, grip size, face design, alignment lines, head finish, forgiveness and center of gravity (CG) can have a huge impact on the greens. It’s not always as easy to find your perfect putter as simply selecting the design you like best; trusted fitters and local professionals can help you get locked into the putter you’ll actually putt better with.

When Team USA takes to the course this week against Team Europe, below are the putters they’ll be relying on.

Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 Putter

OUR TAKE: We’ve seen tour players gravity to high MOI models perhaps more now than ever, and Scotty Cameron has decided to double down on the category with the release of new models in the popular Phantom X putter series. Said an ecstatic tester, “These are the best-looking putter in the bunch that I’ve tried. I love the feel and the different alignment options. The black and yellow pops!”  THE DETAILS: Four models in the Phantom X line of high MOI putters (5, 5.5, 11, 11.5) have been revamped to take better advantage of the stainless steel/aluminum construction, with the new 5.5 catering especially to players who want a gamer that resembles the one used by Justin Thomas. The complete Phantom X series, which includes additional neck configurations, includes a variety of styles and alignment aids to fit the eye of any discerning player.  Check out 150+ reviews from our gear experts in the ClubTest 2021 collection.

Dustin Johnson

Before listing Johnson’s putter for the week, it should be noted that Johnson routinely tests multiple putters per week at an event. He’ll test different models looking for the right feel, even changing between blade and mallet options. So, while he may have used a Spider Tour Limited putter in his most recent appearance on the PGA Tour, he could make a game-time decision and completely change it up. You never really know with DJ.
