Who Is The Best Putter On The PGA Tour? [2023 Season]

It’s no secret that putting is one of if not the most important elements in a round of golf. On the PGA Tour, it separates the guys that are winning lots of events and those struggling to keep their tour cards.

So when it comes to the players on the PGA Tour, who are the best putters? Let’s take a look.

The best putter on the PGA Tour season currently is Maverick McNealy with a Strokes Gained Putting average of 1.058 as of the end of July.

The Strokes Gained Putting stat is the best method of objectively deciding which golfer is best at putting as it takes into account all lengths of putts, comparing the number of putts holes to the expected number.

Over the years, there’s been many great putters on the PGA Tour. The likes of Ben Crenshaw, Seve Ballesteros, Tom Watson, Steve Stricker and perhaps the best of all time, Tiger Woods.

In recent years, putting displays from the likes of Jordan Spieth at the 2015 Masters has been incredible to watch and the Strokes Gained putting average set by Jason Day in the 2015-16 season of 1.130 has yet to be beaten.

Being a good putter on the PGA Tour is very useful to any player and ranking highly in the putting stats is more than likely going to mean more FedEx Cup points and a healthier bank balance.

Where a few less three putts might help amateur golfers do better in the monthly medal, for professionals, even just the slightest improvement in putting strokes gained can really make or break a season.

It’s fine margins in pro golf and the difference between a shot a round can be huge to being successful or losing a tour card.

Final Thoughts

A good putting game is so important at any level of golf, especially on the PGA Tour. A clutch putter that can hole the most putts is always going to feel confident when it gets to the greens, whether it’s a straight putt for birdie or a dow-hill, left to right par save.

However, judging by the number of PGA Tour wins claimed by the current top 10 putters on the PGA Tour, it’s not the only thing you need to be good at to succeed. A well-rounded game which leads to the lowest scoring average is always going to be the player that comes out of the top more often.
