Center shafted putters promote a straight back straight through putting stroke.  I actually prefer a center shafted putter because i have a straight back straight through stroke.  If you have a rounded stroke where it comes in on the back swing and in or straight on the through swing a heel shafted putter would be more beneficial.  It depends on your stroke but anyone can use any type of putter it is completely personal preference and what you feel comfortable with.  That leads to making more putts... Confidence!!

Ive dabbled with a couple center-shafted putters (Titleist Bullseye and recently a Bettinardi BC5) and I found alignment to be much more difficult with them.  With a heel shafted putter I find it much easier just to stand with my eyes over the ball and get good alignment with with a CS putter I found the ball was more inside of my sightline, which make it difficult to get lined up correctly.

I also prefer heel shafted putters for the same reason. I've read that this has to do with occular dominance, but I'm foggy on the details.

I'd be interested to hear if anybody here has insight into the relationship between left/right eye dominance and putter shaft offset.

    • It's not that. It's very disjointed. Left hand a little strong, right hand weak.
    • I wish she would have mentioned if all those patients that showed up at her clinic were vaccinated or unvaccinated, or a combination of both.  Otherwise, reassuring.
    • Recorded some DTL swings after my round today. Need to figure out how to upload videos from the Live View Pro app on my tablet to youtube. I think the Live View Pro camera works great as a digital mirror, but video quality is pretty low on recorded swings, especially on downswing. I'll try to find the highest quality video and post it here. Will get FO view later this week, and may get DTL again using my iPhone.
