Everyone says I don't miss so many to the left but the law of averages because of the mechanics and design of the putter are heavily swayed for misses to the left.

drugs are bad mmmmmkay

In my own scientific experiment with my normal group - its pretty even with misses either left, right, short or long.

Your numbers would be a tiny bit closer to right if everyone always putted with the down hill slant to the left of the hole. Otherwise, get off of the hippy lettuce and stop pretending to be an instructor.

I think he is talking about the part where you said open the face P57 not the part about the toe.

If we set up a robot with a balanced putter on a straight swinging line and ensured the face was always square to target on a straight putt then yes Eric this would probably be the stats. But we are talking about humans.  "ba-dump-bump"

Aha! So that's where the razor blade comes into the picture! Of course! I'm going to shave 1mm "open" my custom fitted putter that goes straight because now Patrick57's posts make so much sense! Oh my! You've GOT to write a book, Patrick57! With pictures! And more scientific statistics!

Your objections have substance because you have studied this or you think putting is similar to tossing a coin. Most female golfers will leave putts over 30' short on average 80-90% of the time. Male golfers slightly less.

I don't have to pretend! How did you know I liked the blow!

I didn't mention scientific experiments.

How did you know I was a genius?

Kurisu, please call me Patrick and I have written a book, unfortunately without pictures but my descriptions don't need them..

Your stats are laughable, P57.

Watch a PGA Tour event. Tell me how many putts miss left there. If it's > 80% for every putt shown hit by right-handed golfers over the course of a four-day PGA Tour event, I'll make you a moderator. If it's 80% or less, you leave for good.

You must record every putt so that we can fact check your data, but frankly I already know the results.

Is it a bet?

Ah! So Patrick, you admit your studies and statistics have no scientific value whatsoever. Good, that's a start. Now, as the genius you are, I expect you also admit you pulled (pun intended) your statistics out of thin air (trying to stay polite) and that you don't know the difference between units of length and degrees.

How can you check this. I would love to give it a go. I did make one error though. I am talking about putts inside 10 feet.

P.S. You would miss me if I was gone.

You'll be pleased to know that I'm not doubting the OCD thing.

And, I am entertaining the idea that there are other "things" with which you wrestle.

That you make unproven universal statements about putts missing left based on nothing more than your observations...and "years of study"...and having "worked in depth with this"...all leads me to believe that you do not suffer from a lack of confidence which can be good for golf, but annoying as he** in a forum like this.

I have worked in depth with this. Its a sort of OCD thing.

I know a millimetre is a tad over a scliff and 1/10 of a degree is the angle of your logic. LoL

The topic is absurd. So I think we're pretty much on topic as it is.

    • I apologize for resurrecting this thread but I thought this would be relevant information. The difference between Tiger's dip and Hogan's dip is that Hogan stopped the dip past P6 and only raised his head from that point on, even while hitting a driver. Tiger's just kept dipping past P7 and maybe P8. Mac O'Grady also raised his head in the downswing as well after his dip, just a bit earlier at P5 onwards. I believe this is a big part of the reason why Tiger needed multiple back surgeries and Hogan none, even Byron Nelson needed back surgery in his 40s as recalled in his autobiography and he definitely had a major head dip that continued past P7.  Now, I notice this head raising in downswing move after the post P4 dip only occurs with Hogan and Mac and very very very few others; I'd say 99.99% of golfers including the top tour pros today continue to dip past P6 and P7 especially with the longer clubs. That would mean only a handful of golfers in the world would truly pass Key #1 if this move was required to master it.
    • For any one wanting a cheaper sharpening option, the Accusharp is decent and requires no skill level to use.  Amazon.com  
    • Can't find the article or blog but I remember reading about Paul Wood (PING engineer) talking about how from a physics standpoint, more compact heads worked better for more skilled players. Basically a longer/wider face makes it harder for the better player to square up the face and hit the center. This bit hints at it.
    • Even Tom Brady?  When?  Please, for the love of god, tell me when.  😂
    • Day 8.  Spent ten minutes hitting 8-iron and 6-iron indoors, off a mat, into a net.  Took about as many minutes.  Then, I wandered out back to do Speed Sticks.  I haven't read the rules of that encouragement role, but I should:  my last time (before a few minutes ago) using speed sticks, or at least measuring it, was October 25.
