ArmLock Putting Style

NM Golf

Recommended Posts

First round in the books using an arm lock putter. Tiny sample size, but still very encouraging, felt I got the ball on line much better than I have been. Only had one 3-putt, but it was on a 60 foot putt, so not really the putters fault; ran my first putt by 8 feet and lipped out the come backer. Made a couple 15-20 footers, but the big improvement was on the putts 6 ft and in, I only missed one of them. Thats huge. 

Shot 70 (-2) was certainly nice to get under par again.

Is there anyone out there who has any experience with the armlock putting style? How did you like it. Pros and Cons? I'm considering going that direction.

I've never been a great putter, I've always relied on my length and ball striking to overcome my putting woes, but my putting has recently really started to be a glaring problem. My putting stats continue to get worse and worse with each round I play. Short putts are my main issue, I am really struggling from 3-6 feet with a make percentage well below 25% in my last 6 rounds.

I've tried claw, left hand low, heck I even tried a broomstick putter...right now I couldn't make a 4 footer if my life depended on it.

Thanks in advance!


I don't have an arm lock putter, but adopted that style of putting. I hold the grip tightly against by right arm and put from the shoulders. Like you I have never been a great putter, but it has certainly helped
