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.

    • I took my first lesson of 2021 yesterday and my teaching pro, Joe Portfilo, has no problem with me posting his video recaps of my lessons.  I do not have the most recent video yet but below is a lesson from Aug. 2020.  He gave me a lot to work on, and some he mentioned again yesterday.

    • I bought a driver head that was in a box, not possible to be damaged in transit unless it was crushed flat. I sent the seller a photo showing the dent, I’m obviously amazed eBay in my case didn’t investigate the claim. All correspondence with the seller is by the eBay “eBay” app, so they have access to what was written between us. Buying a callaway epic driver in NZ costs a $1000nz so to buy one for a third of that I expected scratch and marks on it, I don’t expect dents and dishonest description for a jerk...
