L.A.B. Golf Link.1 Putter - Stainless SteelL.A.B. Golf
Linking The Past And The Future
So many golfers love the look of blade putters. Yes, they are beautiful, but they are not always the best for making putts.
What L.A.B. Golf have done with LINK.1 was honouring the shape of these legendary putters but make them dramatically easier to use by adding Lie Angle Balance.

Stop Battling Your Blade
Like all L.A.B. Golf putters, LINK.1 is designed to stay square to your path during the putting stroke. That means there is no need to try to keep the face square, compared to other toe hang putter. All you have to do is let the face stay square.
Think about that for a second. How many more putts would you make if you could trust your putter to be square at impact?
Uses A Normal Grip
L.A.B. Golf’s goal with LINK.1 was to make it a no brainer for blade users to make the switch. That starts with a simple blade head shape and extends to the grip. LINK.1 is made to be used with normal putter grips. L.A.B. Golf have two options, Simple Rubber and Simple Cord.
L.A.B. Golf’ do not recommend using a Press Grip on LINK.1 because unlike their mallet putters, the design of LINK.1 does not require a forward leaning grip.
How It Is Made
To bring Lie Angle Balance to LINK.1, L.A.B. Golf hyper engineered it from 303 Stainless Steel.
The putter head is 100% CNC Milled in the USA, and there are four screws on the heel side and six on the toe side so a wide range of length and lie angle options can be produced.
Please don’t adjust these screws. They are installed by L.A.B. Golf craftsmen in Creswell, Oregon. The craftsmen spend a lot of time getting the weights just right in the building and balancing process.
There is magic in those screws.
Link.1 Vs Mezz.1
On the fence between LINK.1 and L.A.B. Golf’s mallet putters? If you really want to look at a blade, don’t worry about LINK.1 being less forgiving than L.A.B. Golf’s mallets.
The most important thing about putting is having a consistent face angle at impact, and that is what LINK.1 and all L.A.B. Golf putters are made to do.
Because all L.A.B. Golf putters have zero torque, there is really no adjustment period when you switch to different L.A.B. Golf putter models. That is why so many Labbers have multiple L.A.B. Golf putters.
Sometimes golfers want to putt with an oversized mallet. Sometimes golfers want to putt with a mid-mallet. Now golfers can add LINK.1 to the rotation when they want to putt with something classic.
Introducing Link.1 From L.A.B. Golf
The L.A.B. Golf Story - Lie / Angle / Balance
Bill Presse, a former mini tour player had the idea to create a putter that would allow him to drastically simplify his stroke. He wanted to be able to count on a square putter face every time, which led him to invent Lie Angle Balance.
Bill also wanted to create a putter head that would give him as much forgiveness as possible, so he developed the radical shape of the DF 2.1 as a way to maximise consistency on off centre hits. Yes, it looks like a branding iron - but it works.
The L.A.B. Golf Claim
L.A.B. Golf putters can do amazing things other putters can’t because of Lie Angle Balance, or L.A.B. for short. Lie Angle Balance gives every golfer the ability to consistently repeat the putting stroke with far less effort than with other putters. This is achieved by eliminating torque.
Why We Hate Torque - The Low Torque Putter Revolution
Torque is an industry problem. Golfers have been battling torque in their putters throughout the history of the game. Most golfers have learned to adjust for torque by adding uneven hand pressure to the putter, introducing yet another variable into their putting stroke.
Even today’s largest club manufacturers have acknowledged the issue of torque, marketing putters with a variety of balance types, different levels of toe hang, counterbalance, face balance etc. None of these products actually solve the problem - Lie Angle Balance does.
Thankfully, it is not hard for L.A.B. Golf to prove their claims. Before Bill Presse dreamed up Lie Angle Balance and the Directed Force 2.1, he developed a device called “The Revealer” to help him better understand the torque created by different kinds of putters. If you watch the video below the issue of torque in putters is perfectly explained.
Why Lie / Angle / Balance Matters
The hallmark of great putting is returning the putter face to square at impact, or perpendicular to the target line. The latest research shows that 83% of a putts starting direction is influenced by the direction of the putter face at impact. The other 17% is influenced by the path of the putter head.
Lie Angle Balance (L.A.B.) Technology makes it effortless for golfers to deliver a square putter face at impact. Unlike other putters, L.A.B. Golf putters keep the putter face square to the arc throughout the stroke. It makes putting as easy as picking the right line, the right speed, and making your natural stroke.
With no adjustments to make during the stroke, golfers can be confident that their putts will roll exactly where they are aiming. With a L.A.B. Golf putter, golfers will quickly see that they are better putters than they think.
