Zippo, today's a good day to get out and practice with your putter. Blue skies. Just don't take the Hannegan road.

Good idea. I'll probably just run over to Grandview and practice for a while. Lots of work needed on my chipping, too. Ahhh, who am I kidding. Lots of work needed on my whole game!

Thanks, @Double Mocha Man. I putted pretty well today. Not that there still isn't plenty of room for improvement, of course, but I'm not feeling as lost as I was and not feeling like the toe of the putter is gonna drag on the ground with the new lie.

If your lie is 4 degrees off with 4 degrees of loft, you would be approx 1.8 inches offline at 30 ft.

We have the same relation ship between a face angle thats 1* open or closed to path as we have for 1* up or 1* flat for lie angles, they cause the same tilt on the spin axis, on this case as roll.
At 8 yards (24 feets), we dont hit the cup at all if lie is more than 1* off, (and the cup is 4.25") so at 4* off and 30 feets, way outside the cup, just try it yourself. If lie angle on putters was no more important than that we would all play 72* or what ever they deliver as "standard"

No. That’s not accurate.

Howard, that's not accurate. The influence of lie angle diminishes as we decrease the loft towards 0. A one degree up or flat lie will not equate to anything close to a 1 degree face angle change. Unless I missed it, I did not see anything in the link specifically about this?

• I call this outcome the biggest cliche’ in golf.  You watch someone face this shot and know damn well their next shot will be out of the bunker.
• There are idiots everywhere. Why the surprise to see them on the course?
• At the course where I practice, I once had a marshal, off duty, playing golf himself, come up and chide me for having one wheel of my cart on the tee box.  He's known as the Nazi Marshal. Final hole at Shuksan, driving up the bluff to the clubhouse... a couple wrapping up a scramble drove through the wooden fence and tumbled their cart down the cliff side until a tree stopped them.  They were bloodied and ended up owning a totaled power cart.
• Yes. Both. You can jury rig something IF your bag rubs. Or get the \$9 official fix. Or wait for the 4. They are not. ClicGear are the tanks among the regular cars of push carts.
• Day 19 - January 18, 2020 Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do. Not feeling great and slid the whole way down my driveway this morning on my shoes after picking myself up from falling, so I hit ten balls at a medium speed after teaching for six hours and called it a day.
