If you could have any pro's putting stroke, whose would it be?

27 posts in this topic

I been practicing my putting all winter, and I been finding I cannot duplicate the smooth silky stroke of a Faxon or Stricker in a consistent manner.

I tried to  putt like Sneds or Woods with a hit or pop during my putting motion.

Results show  Im more consistent with this way of putting .

Im sure results will vary per individual.

What putting stroke on tour to you admire, or putt like?

Luke Donald, probably the best putter on tour for the past 4-5 years. Three years in a row he had the most strokes gained putting.

How extraordinary that you can't consistently duplicate the putting stroke of one the best putters in the history of the game! ;-)

I like the Badds' putting style - because he pulls the trigger as soon as he has the line.

People like Furyk are bad for the game because they make it (putting) look boring and unnatural.

The thing about putting, like other aspects of the game is that what people do and what they think they do are completely different things.

You have to find your own style and stick with it. Just don't freeze over the ball at address.

I like the way Schwartzel looks when addressing the ball with a putter. I can't say the same for Jeff Overton

If you had said green reading abilities, I'll probably go with any top 10 pro since they sink enough putts. I may not be a great green reader, but whatever wrong line I choose, my putting stroke is pretty solid at staying on it. So I'll stick with mine for now

I like mine too!  But my set up is similar to a lot of players.

I love his name too.  Sounds like a famous Italian Chef!  (I am half Italian)

He is Italian. So probably that's why his name sounds that way. haha

Brandt Snedeker.  Not many better putting practitioners in world golf.


Snedeker is interesting because I would putt like total crap if I tried to copy his style, but it works great for him.

I'm happy with my own. ;-)

If I could somehow putt very well and look like any pro's stroke while doing so, it'd be Michelle Wie. But I don't think I'd be very good putting that way, so I'd prefer it to be like Luke Donald if I had to pick one.

I think Luke Donald would be my ideal putting stroke. Just so smooth and clearly works for him!

I like Sneds and early Tiger strokes. The putts look like they were going in or 5 feet by I hate being passive and coming short or even decelerate into the stroke

The best putters in the world are all decelerating at or even slightly before impact with their putters… :whistle:

That's news to me. Maybe that's why I'm such a bad putter. Where's the evidence for that? How about putting uphill on slow green. Still decel?

    • When is the weather "too bad" to play?
      Its the same at Stoneleigh, recovered from aerification, and the rough just loved all the rain.  Member-Guest is next weekend, fairways will be important.
    • Jr Tournament play?
      For the junior tournaments where I worked as a rules official, the parents were not allowed near the players or their balls.  They had the status of being observers or fans, nothing more.  No coaching was allowed, and certainly they did not race ahead to the area where the balls lay after a stroke.  In fact the only carts allowed for family were for those who were disabled - all others walked.  Such potential interaction as you describe would not have been allowed.
    • The Dan Plan - 10,000 Hours to Become a Pro Golfer (Dan McLaughlin)
      Dan is the first to my knowledge to formally challenge the Talent Code, a non gifted individual who would commit to 10,000 hours of practice with the established goal of being a PGA Tour player.   Many members here that claim they want to be a pro golfer are younger kids who show some potential in the sport and are deluded or convinced into believing they have the raw talent required to become a professional.  I don't think we've had someone actually document their journey with the level of transparency Dan provided in the beginning of his "plan".   I started following him later in his plan and while I was initially rooting for him I eventually started to question his approach and commitment, as well as his transparency in his progress.  
    • Using the tee box markers?
      The player is not using equipment in an unusual manner since the  tee marker is not equipment - it is nothing more than an obstruction which is deemed to be fixed (i.e. immovable) when playing his first stroke from the teeing ground of the hole being played.  After that they are movable obstructions.   There is no prohibition about standing on an obstruction, immovable or movable, with one or both feet, when making a stroke as long as nothing is done that would constitute building a stance. As far as being a device, the all encompassing dictionary definition goes well beyond the meaning of the term as it is applied in the Rules of Golf.  A device is an obstruction, and it may be equipment if it meets that definition, but not all obstructions are equipment or devices. This is simply a case of trying to read into the rules something that isn't there.  If it isn't prohibited, then it is permitted.  I see nothing that would lead me to rule against putting one foot on or against a tee marker, provided that the tee marker doesn't move during the process.
    • Chipping from tight lies?
      I agree. Bounce is your friend. I had a pretty straight forward punch shot yesterday.  For short punch shots I like to use more of a pitch motion. An 8 iron has about 4 degrees of bounce. #NoGlide  In terms of difficult lies. I'd say a soggy fairway is the worst. I rather hit of concrete than soggy fairway. It's just tough to let the club glide when the ground has that much give to it.
