Got any facts?
Look, you are not a professor and we are not your students.
You got any manners?
Tired of guys too effin' lazy to research their own questions before they ask it on a forum, and then start to berate others for attempting to assist them.
My suggestion? Bend over ... and try it yourself.
Here's a fact for you re SBST.
I tried it years ago as a healthy 40 something male with no physical limitations and in above average physical condition -- my back hurt after practicing SBST on the range for several months. And no, I did not bend horizontal to the ground. And when you don't, you will have an arc if the putt is sufficiently long.
As to Floyd, he's used a slightly longer putter for years now.
You see a lot of guys using an upright style - see Tiger and a slew of others on Tour.
