Yea I slightly modified my grip a bit. I am standing a bit further from the ball now. Getting the putter more inline with my forearms. I also went with a grip that was more in the palms of my hands, especially the right hand. For me at least that way I am taking out a face rotation and turning my wrists into a hinge. where it can only hinge left and right.
Yea if you get that putting down you could shave 4-5 strokes off your game. That one day you had to have at least 6-7 three putts, just all over the place with your distance control.
Very similar for me yesterday. I played 18, had 6 GIR, and had 2 others that were fairly close, so I used the putter 30 times, and had 28 official putts. (Everything else sucked, but the putting was good ;))
I did have one 3 putt though, which was annoying. I still seem to average one 3-putt every round or two. I need to get rid of those, and get rid of wild tee shots, and then I'll pretty much be golden. :)
I am really getting that pitching technique down. What was once a fear in my game is a strength now. I know, you get down to single digits and you start seeing those small occurrences creep into the score. If only I didn't have that three putt. That one duff chip. That stupid drive. Its just insane how you go from praying for solid contact to bitching about the little things. God I love this game
