Does seem awfully ridiculous that putting a little angle on the bottom of the club (a part you don't hit the ball with!) would do anything in regards to spin ... but I'm sure some people buy it.
There's an old putting drill where you put two quarters down behind your ball and you try to stroke putts without disturbing the quarters. The idea is to not strike the ball too low or "below the equator." Who knows if that's a good drill or not. But someone probably saw that drill and thought it would be a good idea to ground down the bottom of a putter so you never hit the ball too low. This is of course, a theory of mine, over how the putter came to be.
But anyone who buys a putter without trying it first is likely going to walk away with buyer's remorse.
And re: Chuck Evans... yea... who knows.... We all gotta eat, right?
