Not sure you can use the words, "art of putting" when talking about using a long putter.

I don't get it. Is there something to be learned here?

If you're not a very good putter, don't post videos of your putting on the Internet? :whistle:

Mundane uphill putts on what appears to be a very slow green at that. What seems strange is I think the intent is to demonstrate something without any actual demonstration. No explanation why he uses the putter and why it works for him just seemingly random putts. If it was my first time to visit the forum and I stumbled across this thread it would definitely be a WTF moment.

Since you brought it up, can you explain your email address, then, which includes the words "golf" and "pro" back-to-back (along with a year, before the " @" symbol) ?

[quote name="iacas" url="/t/70531/the-art-of-putting-using-the-long-stick#post_908203"] Since you brought it up, can you explain your email address, then, which includes the words "golf" and "pro" back-to-back (along with a year, before the "@" symbol)? [/quote]. I graduated from ferris state univ in 1994 to be a golf pro, did it for 2 seasons.. Making $5 an hour washing carts :/ clubs and picking range balls and never playing golf wasn't what I expected.. Always proud I passed my pat on the 1 at try, and proud I was an asst golf pro. Miss it at times. I've taken a radical change, and became a United States steel worker after the golf business fizzled for me. I use golf to relax me now, and I love watching golf swings and learning tips here and there. The old vintage swings are my favorite. The 72 is when I was born.. Read every golf book I could, but I really just focus on p4 / impact and a foot after.. All release for me. Reason why I liked aj bonar / mpmig/ docf and the likes. Tried stack and tilt and other methods.. But had no luck at all..I guess I'm all clubhead release ..

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
