 Agree. This makes "miss high" a bad choice of wording. Whether it is helpful to "aim high" might be another matter, but even that might help some but not all. I think there are some who tend to over-read the break on shorter puts for whom this might be bad advice as well. For myself though, it helps a little. I attribute this to the fact that as the ball slows down, the slope of the green has more effect, so often I am surprised by the amount of break in that last foot as...
 I don't think missing is something you even think about. If you get the distance right, the next put is easy no matter where you missed. I think you do want to aim just a tiny bit high though, not so that you miss high, but so that you miss less often. In other words, the put you thought was going to miss will fall in sometimes from the high side, but not likely from the low side. I think that is what people must have in mind. But we're talking about aiming maybe a half...
 None of those guys are any better than the guys already on the team. Nothing wrong with those 5, but there's really no one you could say you would easily want to take out to have any of them. It's not like the Eurpean team, which has really handicapped themselves with a group of 40-something has-beens in Steven Gallacher, Thomas Bjorn, Lee Westwood, and Jamie Donaldson.  In the summer, before we knew the teams, and when Martin Kaymer, Sergio Garcia, and Victor Dubuisson...
Yeyasport is located in Hong Kong, doesn't have much of a track record, and I can't find any reviews or ratings on any of the major sources I would know to check (Better Business Bureau, Resellerratings, Bizrate, Trustpilot, Ripoff Report). How would you even know they aren't selling counterfeits?   I would stick to major online retailers with lots of positive reviews and A+ ratings, like GlobalGolf, TGW.com, and Rock Bottom Golf.    [And if you are OK with clone...
Ben Hogan:  So yeah, it's probably less than optimal. But if it's working with what else is going on in your swing, it's a reasonable adjustment to make.
If you have no need yet for a dynamic fitting yet, a static fitting (fitting to your height, wrist to floor, hand size, swing speed), which is what you can do online with any of these retailers (like gigagolf--fitting length, lie, grip size, shaft flex) is still a useful place to start. At least then you know you have clubs that would fit you well for a "typical" good swing, which is probably what you are working towards.  And anyone who thinks you can get just as good a...
 That looks pretty good. I think you've done a good job separating the best putters (probably Walker, Kuchar, Simpson, and Speith).  But I really don't like the Reed-Furyk suggestion, that one's too oil-and-water I think. You want Reed for his intensity, pairing him with a guy who seems as emotionless as Furyk might work against both.  I'd try this: Watson & Simpson - have worked together well in the pastMickelson & Bradley - another historically good pairingFowler & Reed...
 Yeah, those were the three I liked a week ago. I did think Kirk might have shaken things up with his performance this weekend, but I guess not enough to displace any of the others.
So it's Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan, and Webb Simpson.
I think people are making too much of pairing well with Phil Mickelson or Bubba Watson. Practically any right handed golfer is going to be complimentary to Phil Mickelson or Bubba Watson. Do people really think there is anything special about Keegan Badley that made that a good team?   If Watson really wants to be strategic, maybe he should surprise everyone and reach for Brian Harman, just to have another lefty.
