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 ..

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
