    Yes, they come with a handle.

    It's got a 35" shaft so you'd need to be fairly tall for this - it's not a juniors putter.

    Hope this helps.

    Whether they come put together or not is the question. I've seen them come with the head and the handle separate and together.

    I'm worried about the length, is 35" a bit too high? I'm about 6 feet plus plus...

    I'm about 5' 10" and I think about 33" is about right for me.

    You could always get it cut down if you got and decided it was too long. Shouldn't cost you much at all to get it cut down. Pro shop near me will do them for the price of a grip.

    The price is really amazing and I just couldn't resist. Thanks for the advice!

    I would invest in a really nice putter early in your golfing career since it is most associated to feel. Once you get acquainted with a putter, you will not want to switch away from it. That's why Tiger's only non-Nike club in his bag is his scotty cameron.

    I prefer a shorter shaft, mine's 33" and I'm 5'10". It just feels so much more comfortable plus I feel like I have more control.

    It all really depends on your posture. I stand pretty upright, and I use a 35" putter (I'm 6'2"). If my posture gets to be more crouched, I'll either grip down on my current blade or use a shorter-shafted putter (maybe 33.5"). The best thing to do is get custom fitted by someone who knows what they're doing. There is absolutely no substitute for a putter that fits to you, rather than the other way around. It's the fastest way to a consistent stroke, which will in turn lower your score. Length isn't the only consideration, there is lie angle, face angle, heel/center shaft attachment, etc.

    Go see a recommended professional to get some hands-on help.

    i'm 5'10" and all my putters (three of them) are 33". but try before you buy. and remember, it's a lot easier to take away length than it is to add it.
