In all honesty, it is nice to know that making a small*ish* change to my swing like shortening my backswing could result in some major improvements in striking like you've indicated. If you could be honest with me here, Matt, how much of my problem would you say is simply a product of my overswing?
An easy way to tell is to go play 9 holes swinging 66.66666667% and see what your score is.

But I can only swing at 66.6666667% at the absolute lowest!

Putting stroke :no:

 

 

 

 

SO UGLY!!! I couldn't hit anything consistent at all. Just terrible feeling trying to put right now

I recognize that putting green. a2_wink.gif

It looks like your through stroke is a but longer than your back stroke.

Well one problem is I can't take my putter back consistently the same. Sometimes I want to take it to the outside, it just gets all terrible feeling. That and I heel a TON of putts as well.

Again, re: Ernest Jones, you're leaning too far left at setup. No one good does that. 

 

Right shoulder lower a bit, tilt more rightward, weight more evenly distributed. 

 

 

Graeme's no.2 in strokes gained putting this year. Luke is no.6 I think:

 

 

Snedeker: He's not leaning leftward. Right shoulder lower. 

 

 

You'll notice Brad Faxon leans his lower body a little leftward like you do, but his upper center is tilted the other direction. 

 

 

Grip's another thing you may want to look into as well at some point. Perhaps more unified hands.

I think widening my stance might help a bit.

Two problems, easy to fix:

 

 

 

SAM PuttLab will show you the way to putting enlightenment.

 

On Sunday.

I don't know why, but the line, "SAM PuttLab will show you the way to putting enlightenment." just cracked me up.

You don't need SAM.

 

SAM will just make it easier for you to get where you need to go more quickly and accurately.

 

Your problems are pretty evident without a $6k putting contraption. :-)

Will you tell me? So I can feel like I got something expensive for free. Should be easy enough for you.

Guys, I did say without the machine.

 

It just measures things far, far more accurately than you can do with your eyes.

Pretty much, but using fancy technology is so much fun :-D

 

By the two images you posted I am going to guess, 

 

First, that wrist angle in my left hand is probably not very good for a putting stroke. 

Second, the putter head ascends to much in the backswing.

Nope.

 

Stop guessing. :)

Dah, oh well. :whistle:

 

I guess for my golf league tonight I might just speed my putting process up, just give it whack before my mind starts going onto different tangents on what is going wrong. Instinctual putting!!!

Pick a spot 4 inches in front of the ball and roll it over that.
