Michelle Wie's Tabletop Putting Stance - WTF is she doing?

Thread Starter 

 

I have never seen such lunacy.  What swing/putting coach would ever endorse this?

Holy crap, that does not look like fun.

Yeah, saw her doing this a while back. Looks like desperation.

That would make my back hurt.

From what I can see she's holding it wrong LOL

Once the anchoring rule comes into effect we'll need to take a closer look at her technique ;-)

Let's hope the Champions Tour players don't start putting like that once they can't anchor. Last thing I want to see is one of those guys in a kilt.

Big spike in Soft Grip sales and Jumbo Maxx might go outta business!

talk about a girl not living up to her potential.

she's just so tall & lanky - the way she bends over doesn't look all that different from Nicklaus' technique.

That was my first reaction too. She's 6'1" though. Tall for women, sure, but plenty of men are even taller. I'm about 6'1" (far less lanky though), and my stance is nothing like that.

Probably works for her, but it doesn't look stable, and it looks so ridiculous.

..and it doesn't work for her.

 

 

 

EDIT* actually she is currently ranked 46th out of 149 ranked LPGA players which is higher than I thought. I've seen some spectacular misses though.

Does bending over that far force (or at least encourage) you to use your hands/wrists more?  Seems like it would also cause you to exert more energy maintaining the proper balance, because if you rock just slightly forward while that far bent over, you have less of a base underneath to stabilize yourself.
