Love, love love. It has been a few weeks and I can safely say that I am in love with my new Seemore PCB putter and the Seemore technique, setup, and overall concept.
I used to need to search for my putting stroke on the practice green before every round. Somedays I found the feel, ball position, just the right amount of forward press, hands holding the club square past impact, and speed control that made me a good putter that day. Other days I was still tinkering and searching for a putter stroke on the 18th green. My buddies described my putting as "streaky" -- a polite way of saying I was inconsistent with some good days among the awful days. I'll soon be 55. As I become an old guy, I hope my short game and putting will carry my game.
So, I finally decided that it was time to become a consistently good putter. Research here and on other golf forum led to to look into Seemore for both the putters and the technique that the putters aid. The videos on the Seemore.com website are very informative (even if the production quality is sub-par). I was able to have a good idea what I was getting into if I joined the Seemore family.
It is not really so different than most good putters teach, with a few exceptions. It is all very different for me. The Seemore putters aid in helping you create a nice, small, arc swing to the putter. (I was a guy who tried SBST). A neutral setup position and a shoulder "swing" may be common to most, but were not my old style. I dove in head first. I was using a 33" putter and bought the Seemore PCB at the recommended 35". I changed my stance to be narrower and closer to the ball while standing more upright. I practiced the gentle arc that hides the dot throughout the swing with the arms letting the putter do the work. I did not change to Pat O'Brien's suggested grip and I kept my recently discovered Super Stroke 3.0 on my new Seemore.
Wow what a difference Seemore has made. I not going to tell you that I now drain every putt. But, I know exactly what I'm trying to do when I set up to the ball. I can check my setup by "hiding the dot." I can check by arc by hiding the dot when the putter is back and through. I hit the center of the putter almost every time and I hit the ball straight on my line. And, tomorrow my putting should be the same as it was yesterday and today. No more searching on the practice green before a round.
If the few rounds I've played since switching to Seemore are any indication, I will soon be a consistently good putter soon. Heck, I may be already. For example, in today's round, I made a few nice putts over 5 feet. I played a longer than usual course today so, when I hit the green in regulation, I had longer than usual first putts. I was not pouring in 20 footers all day. But, significantly, I had second putt tap-ins all day with only one exception (an awful read on a 50 foot putt, I read as near straight and it broke eight feet and was not as uphill as I thought, that left me 10 feet and my only 3-putt). And many of those 15-30 foot first putts had a real chance to go in. I got up and down from every green I missed save one and my confidence in my putting was a big part of my chipping being better. I felt if I could get within five feet I could get the putt down. 31 putts for the round. If I keep putting like this I'll drop two points of my index by the 15th.
I started this thread in hopes that others might share their experience with Seemore methods and Seemore putters. And, perhaps those considering Seemore could find help here. Join in the love.
