Getting the opportunity to review golf clubs and products is a nice perk of the job, but if we’re speaking candidly, it’s a rare occasion that something you’ve never seen before gets dropped on your front porch. 

Sure, innovation is everywhere, but the truth is that in golf — like many other things in life — it’s much safer to play a bit of a copycat game. A tweak here or there can make a club more user-friendly for a certain subset of golfers. However, to completely go outside the box is uncommon, but that’s what VLS Golf has done with their G-Track Putter.

Now, the G-Track Putter’s defining feature isn’t an industry first, but it is the first time someone has taken a proven feature from one facet of the game and engineered it into the putter. With three customizable shaft insertion options, the G-Track Putter is the first and only truly adjustable putter on the market.

If you’re hooking or slicing your driver, a few turns of your wrench and you’re back to hitting fairways. Why isn’t there anything like that for putting? That’s the question Golf Digest Best In State Instructor Todd Kolb set out to answer.

The G-Track Putter will undoubtedly have the big-boy OEMs wondering, “Why didn’t we think of that?!”

First Impressions

Straight out of the box, the G-Track Putter is good-looking. Its black-and-red color scheme strikes a unique chord, with the blacked-out face looking very sleek. The first thing you notice is the elongated putter grip — measuring nearly 17 inches. It brings to mind the flatsticks of the guys you see on TV: Rickie Fowler, Wyndham Clark and Fred Couples. It’s a trend Kolb says he’s been waiting to see take off for years.

As you move down the shaft and take a closer look at the head of the club, you see its design genius. The shaft goes into the mallet head in the middle of three holes — what VLS calls the T-1 position, or neutral. 

The two other holes on either side of T-1 — appropriately labeled T-0 and T-2 — allow the golfer to move where the shaft goes into the club head with a simple Allen wrench (included in the packaging with two other screws should you lose the original in the grass during adjustments).

Simply through its design, the G-Track encourages you to want to learn more about it and how it works, so that’s what we did.

On The Course

As a “normal” putter, the G-Track could perform well on any review. Between the comfortable grip and the hefty weight of the putter head, it’s a high-quality putter without any of the bells and whistles. The “Bilateral Alignment,” 380-gram head and soft, milled face paints a nice picture looking down at the ball.

The loft of 2° is on the flatter side of the putter spectrum because many amateurs unintentionally add loft to their putts in an effort to “help” the ball down the line. You can probably tell by the quotation marks around “help,” but that’s not a good thing.

While all that is fine and good, this putter’s superpowers come from its adjustability. As stated above, you get your neutral, run-of-the-mill positioning in the middle, T-1 shaft placement. But our putting strokes aren’t neutral. You’ve probably heard of “push putters” or “pull putters.” All that means is golfers have given up on finding a stroke that fits a neutral setup.

Instead of adding more variables to the process of putting, the G-Track allows you to set up square every time, align yourself correctly and adjust the shaft to fit your stroke. 

Tend to push your putts (/raises hand) with a straighter path, move the shaft position to the back  — T-0  — to discourage the face from rotating open. Pull too many putts? Move your shaft up to T-2 and feel more resistance to the face shutting down.

Finally, the longer grip gives players three more options for adjustability. At 38 inches, the G-Track is slightly longer than your normal putter but nowhere near a broomstick or belly putter. Of course, you can place your hands in a normal position halfway down the grip, allowing for some counterbalance with the longer shaft, but you can also grip more toward the top of the putter to ease some of the tension on your back.

The third option with the longer grip is to put your hands toward the bottom of the grip and create somewhat of an arm-locked style to help those who may struggle with those twitchy, yippy strokes.

The Takeaway

Overall, the G-Track Putter has something for everyone.

Whether you’re a player simply looking for more consistency in your stroke, tired of missing the majority of your putts on one side of the hole, or you’re someone looking for a cure to your yips, the G-Track can do a little bit of everything for you.

Selling for a few hundred dollars less than the majority of the high-end putters on the market that don’t have a fraction of its adjustability, you’re destined to find a setting on the G-Track that you’ll love.

The G-Track Putter retails for $299.00, but SwingU users are getting $100 off — $199.00. Visit to learn more about the G-Track Putter and the rest of VLS Golf’s products.
