I would like to your advice on a different grip and putting stroke.
I am 5'9" tall and is using a 32" putter with a claw grip.
Since using the claw grip, the right elbow will stick out to the side and the right pressure point will no longer attached.
Q1: In that case, the only pressure point will be on the left?
I am using a straight back and straight forward stroke (or should I?). Is the following correct?
Q2: In the backstroke, the right forearm will not raise up less and more to the side instead of back up.
Q3: Since trying to use a straight back straight through stroke, the shoulders more rock up and down instead of rotating, i.e. even less rotation.
Q4: However, as the left pressure point attached, it is easy to have rotation. Therefore do you use more a rotation stroke or straight back stroke for claw putting?
The idea of SBST might be nice in theory but very tough to actually do. http://thesandtrap.com/t/64320/straight-back-straight-through-is-it-really-possible#post_801076
If you want to go claw grip then I would suggest having the left elbow away from the side as well. If you want more of a body stroke, then it might be good to feel the stroke initiated by slight rotation of the chest rather than a shoulder rock. Shoulder rock can have the head moving too much. Pretend you have a laser pointer sticking out of your sternum and just move the "dot" to the right on the backstroke. Can create a good blend of rotation and "rock".
