PostSubject: Putting Strokes   Thu May 02, 2013 8:45 pm

So over the years Ive tried numerous putting grips, feelings, swing paths, ideas, setups, postures, you name it, ive tried it. This is partly to learn how to teach all the variations to my students and partly to see what works the best for me.

Ive been hard pressed to find a current player on tour that is extra "wristy" with his take back and release of the putter head. Most keep the wrist and foreams steady and the chest/shoulders rotate in some form. Can anyone think of a pro that putted like this? Maybe Isao Aoki?

I have recently changed to this extra wristy load and release to roll my ball. I rotate my shoulders but specifically in a 1,2,3,4 sequence. 1-wrist 2-shoulders 3-shoulders 4-wrist. The tempo is 1,2,3,4. wrist, shoulders, shoulders, wrist. Sorry for the attempted visual, but its what is going through my head while Im standing over the putt. Smile It really feels like im just rolling the golfball down my line underhanded with my right hand. There is almost no swing or hitting feel in my mind.

I had the best putting round of my career with this routine last week. 14 one-putts, 4 two-putts I drained them from all over the map 80, 60, 40, 40, 10- ft.. the ball stayed on my line the entire way and way tracking the hole everytime I rolled it. Im not the best putter in the world and it had seriously held me back in the competitive leagues and tours. This is a total shock and Ive praticed with my new phylosophy a few times on the putting green and it is dead solid perfect. It feels like I can hole out any putt in the world. The ones that dont go in still hit the hole and Im left with tap ins.

Putting is the beginning of the end for most golfers. It seperates the champions from the rest of the heard. The easiest way to get really good at golf is with confidence. When there is no doubt in your mind that you are better than what the course has to give you. Find a putting stroke that will give you a ball rolling in a straight line and dies on that line. Find your stroke and lift the burden of trying to stick it close every time!

Even the best Pros battle with putting...I can honestly say it is one of the most frustrating things about the game of golf

Yes it is! I've seen some sticks give up the game because it cost them too much to replace their broken putters every round.

Serious anger problems if your breaking your putting every time you play a round!

I have thought about changing the actual grip on my putter to one of those none tapered grips.....anyone tried them or uses one?
