I'm currently using a blade (Anser style) putter. Bought it about a year ago simply because of the looks and price. I didn't think about swing arc, balanced face, etc at that time.
The more I play golf, the more I realised that my natural putting stroke is almost straight back and through (SBST) with very slight arc. I felt I'm much more consistent and have more control with it. I'm averaging 1.6-1.8 putts with this method.
I read The Art of Putting's Stan Utley and tried my best to incorporate his method. Unfortunately, I lost my distance control. I feel that I'm not really connected with my forearms and wrists. My putting average dropped to 2.4-2.6.
Am I doing this incorrectly? Should I go back to my natural SBST? Anyone doing this like me? Opinions? Thoughts?
