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