Re: Inside Down the Line putting stroke
it seems that david stockton is sitting in the sweet spot at the moment as far as helping with putting goes. i hesitate buying into the hype in general for different reasons, but here is couple youtube videos where he was discussing couple issues with a rep. of note, they were looking at initial ball spin right after impact and clubface angle away and back. even putter (i guess some putters give more optical illutions than others?). i think with any new swing changes or new gadgets, ideally, it will be good to get feedback more scientifically. i am not a big fan of stories where one beams about cutting how many strokes right after a switch. more info is needed: what happens to the next 20-40 games... one needs time to smooth out the different variables. besides, didn't pelz say something like, not all well struck putts go in and not all poorly struck putts miss...
in terms of straight back vs arch, recently stricker in golf digest revealed what he does. he changes between the 2 depending on the putting surface speed!!!
fasting green: straight back. slower: arch through. so, diff strokes for diff folks,,,,,at different time?
i have seen jim flick's write up about tiger putting almost like a draw. but the story does not end right there, as with anything else in life. i have also seen tiger recently talking about for longer putts: when he did not putt well, he thought it was because he did not RELEASE the club, meaning, he did not let the club swing into inside naturally. the dichotomy of life.http://www.••••••••••••••••••?v=vNelgVLhz00http://www.••••••••••••••••••?v=N5Ya7fCH0pchttp://www.••••••••••••••••••?v=569s92AJs_Y
here is stockton putting: note he is standing open to the line, is that arch or straight...you tell me? doesn't matter. years of horning his skills allow him to arrive to this set up. unless we can copy every little thing he does, it may or may not be of help to our game, i think.
just noticed that those youtube feeds don't work. type in david stockton golf on youtube, you should be able to find them.
