I don't really advocate two putters, since one is plenty. This comes up when someone insists first on using a belly putter, and then they have difficulty with longer putts and good touch / distance control. So opting for the belly putter, or the broomstick putter, is what brings the issue up to start with. Then, a conventional putter can help out on the longer putts.
But, hey, I don't advocate a belly putter or a long putter. I teach using a conventional putter well.
Even so, if someone just likes a belly putter or a long broomstick, instead of choosing one in hopes that it will give some missing magic or at least tuck the golfer deep inside the herd of other gutless golfers, then that's okay. It's the people who try to buy a game with magic sticks who never learn skill. Those are the people who might do less badly using a second putter in the bag, sort of a bandaid on top of a bandaid.
