Four equipment-related guidelines to know.
PGA Tour player Bryson DeChambeau, famous for using irons that are all the same length, continues to break new equipment ground. This time, it was with a putter he built to use with a sidesaddle technique. It’s perfectly legal to build your own putter, as long as it satisfies the specific conditions outlined in the Rules of Golf. Among the requirements: at least 45 centimetres in length, a lie angle of at least 10 degrees, no more than 10 degrees of loft and a head that isn’t longer than it is wide. For materials, it’s up to you, your imagination and your wallet.
