For Claw Grip Users do You Prefer a Straight or an Arc Putting Stroke?


Recommended Posts

Since the putter doesn't hang straight down, it will always have an arc in it unless you do some strange adjustments with the putting stroke.

That's not entirely true. The putter shaft could be full of loopty-loops and it could go SBST, but generally our bodies aren't set up to do so.

To the OP, @KevinBlake, virtually nobody swings SBST for a stroke of any length. We play golf on a tilted plane, and generally our bodies work on that plane.

You could make an argument that Michelle Wie, with her back almost horizontal with her table top putting stance, could have putted SBST, or very close to it. But unless you set up something like that, or manipulate your arms or wrists in some way, it's awkward to putt SBST.
