Jordan Spieth's Putting Stroke

12 posts in this topic

The left hand low putting grip has been used by a number of PGA Pro's and amateur's alike but Jordan Spieth makes it look as easy as 1-2-3.

I'm changing my putting grip as soon as I get onto a practice putting green! He alone this week has convinced me it's the way forward.

Jim Furyk is playing awesome right now with the double overlap grip.  You boys thinking about making that change as well because a pro's having success?  For the record, I'm not knocking left-hand-low putting.  Hell, I switch to it from time to time.  But putting especially is about personal feel and confidence.  Hope the change is beneficial.  Once you've conquered cross-handed putting, Furyk's double overlap on full swings is your next challenge.

I'll always try and copy the pro's, they seem to know what they're doing & I'm always looking on ways to improve my game, especially my poor putting. I could do with Spieth's control & composure, nevermind his technique.

I can only putt left hand low. Putt with what feels most comfortable for you and what's most effective. The most interesting thing I find about Spieth's putting is how he brings the putter grip forward right before he swings back. I don't see a ton of players doing that, is he just squaring up the face on his particular putter? He also seems to look at the hole on short putts...

I tried the look at the hole on short putts for a little bit yesterday....it was consistent....meaning I consistently hit right of the hole.

Does Jordan use more of an arced stroke or a straight back straight threw putting stroke?

The key to Jordan's putting stroke is really his release. It's why he's so good at long putts. He just has such a smooth release and touch on his long putts. He's not as good with his short putts because you can't release it as much...it's more of a pop with the short putts. Aaron Baddeley was very similar with his putting motion but the problem with him is the rest of his game stunk. Loren Roberts also had a great release.

Is it because he was a baseball player previously? I think it influenced a bit as well.

Hard to follow up anyway from my fixed grip for years.

About the only thing I have in common with Jordan Spieth is I swing right handed but throw left handed in baseball, like he does.  I'm assuming his left hand is his "dominant" like mine.

Cross-hand grip putting came very natural to me and I do get great distance control/tempo on my longer putts, for a part time golfer at least.     However, I don't feel as comfortable six feet in, so I've actually been using cross hand but with a more elbows in swing style on shorter putts.

Long story short, I can understand how there might be a real obstacle there with Jordan as far as finding an elite putting level on short putts.
