    "description": "<p>In the game of golf the putter is used for 40 to 50 percent of all strokes during a round. Therefore, it is important for&nbsp;a golfer to find the putter that suits the own game best and that promises the most success on the green. Compared to&nbsp;all their other golf clubs, average recreational golfers usually select their putter relatively fast - the main criterion for&nbsp;choosing a specific putter being the first impression after a few practice strokes. The purpose of this paper therefore is&nbsp;to find out whether this first impression is reliable in the process of finding a putter, a study was completed. The study&nbsp;was conducted with ninety test subjects of varying skill levels and experience. This study used three different types of&nbsp;putters. The putting accuracy of each test subject with every test putter was recorded. The subjects had to twice fill&nbsp;in a questionnaire about their perception of the putters&rsquo; properties before (Q1) and after (Q2) the putting sequences.&nbsp;The results of Q1 and Q2 were set in relation to the analysis of putting accuracy resulting in low number of successful&nbsp;identifications for Q1 and more than twice the number of successful identifications of Q2. An analysis of the handicap<br>\nand the playing experience of the test subjects indicates that golfers of all skill and experience levels are able to find the&nbsp;best putter through the first impression. However, the results showed that the identification rate is still low. The paper&nbsp;therefore concludes that a golfer should not rely on the first impression alone.&nbsp;</p>",
