The PGA Tour has played 29 events so far this season, and as we often see, a hot putter is a big reason that each of these winners have lifted trophies in the 2019-’20 season. Employing a variety of shapes and styles, the putters used by those players are as varied as their strokes. Currently Scotty Cameron putters have the most wins with eight, followed by Ping with seven and TaylorMade with six. SIK and Odyssey each have four wins.
