If you could have any pro's putting stroke, whose would it be?

27 posts in this topic

I been practicing my putting all winter, and I been finding I cannot duplicate the smooth silky stroke of a Faxon or Stricker in a consistent manner.

I tried to  putt like Sneds or Woods with a hit or pop during my putting motion.

Results show  Im more consistent with this way of putting .

Im sure results will vary per individual.

What putting stroke on tour to you admire, or putt like?

Luke Donald, probably the best putter on tour for the past 4-5 years. Three years in a row he had the most strokes gained putting.

How extraordinary that you can't consistently duplicate the putting stroke of one the best putters in the history of the game! ;-)

I like the Badds' putting style - because he pulls the trigger as soon as he has the line.

People like Furyk are bad for the game because they make it (putting) look boring and unnatural.

The thing about putting, like other aspects of the game is that what people do and what they think they do are completely different things.

You have to find your own style and stick with it. Just don't freeze over the ball at address.

I like the way Schwartzel looks when addressing the ball with a putter. I can't say the same for Jeff Overton

If you had said green reading abilities, I'll probably go with any top 10 pro since they sink enough putts. I may not be a great green reader, but whatever wrong line I choose, my putting stroke is pretty solid at staying on it. So I'll stick with mine for now

I like mine too!  But my set up is similar to a lot of players.

I love his name too.  Sounds like a famous Italian Chef!  (I am half Italian)

He is Italian. So probably that's why his name sounds that way. haha

Brandt Snedeker.  Not many better putting practitioners in world golf.


Snedeker is interesting because I would putt like total crap if I tried to copy his style, but it works great for him.

I'm happy with my own. ;-)

If I could somehow putt very well and look like any pro's stroke while doing so, it'd be Michelle Wie. But I don't think I'd be very good putting that way, so I'd prefer it to be like Luke Donald if I had to pick one.

I think Luke Donald would be my ideal putting stroke. Just so smooth and clearly works for him!

I like Sneds and early Tiger strokes. The putts look like they were going in or 5 feet by I hate being passive and coming short or even decelerate into the stroke

The best putters in the world are all decelerating at or even slightly before impact with their putters… :whistle:

That's news to me. Maybe that's why I'm such a bad putter. Where's the evidence for that? How about putting uphill on slow green. Still decel?

    • Darts does have the advantage of being played in many venues where you can get a pint at any time during the game, as opposed to golf, where you only get the reward when you're done.  Unless you're in the US, of course, where many courses have a roving bar-cart to help you enjoy your round.
    • Furyk getting tight under Ryder Cup pressure could well be true or at least partly true. That critique seems partly true of the U.S. squad in general, doesn't it? Bubba's record is comparably poor at 3-8-0. Considering his dominance and winning percentage in stroke play and beat the field average, Tiger's Ryder Cup record isn't too stellar either. I'm just saying that Furyk (& Tiger too) may not have been used as smartly by the Captains as say, Luke Donald given his relative strengths and weaknesses. Donald tended to be sat for fourball where Furyk played both formats about the same amount, and maybe not with the right complementary partners for the foursomes. When Donald's relative approach game and putting (& birdie/bogie ratio) ranking slipped in 2014 he wasn't picked for the Euro team, because it seems his relative potential contribution (producing birdies) in alternate shot / foursomes had diminished.   Furyk Donald   SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd 2016 -0.294 0.195 0.458 0.285 121 165 69 -0.583 0.060 0.645 0.449 82 181 16 2015 0.064 -0.024 1.081 0.513 15 83 8 -0.793 0.289 0.573 0.514 121 171 46 2014 0.121 0.091 1.175 0.408 5 97 1 -0.493 0.517 0.315 0.351 93 108 93 2013 0.023 0.092 0.950 0.323 25 78 14 -0.459 0.528 0.583 0.628 45 42 58 2012 0.225 0.423 0.830 0.275 9 145 1 -0.188 0.818 0.582 0.430 13 66 7 2011 -0.017 -0.160 0.643 0.190 77 147 32 0.040 0.870 1.094 0.273 1 4 1 2010 0.150 0.402 0.641 0.367 21 76 21 -0.506 0.870 0.661 0.464 16 109 9 AVG 0.039 0.146 0.825 0.337 39 113 21 -0.426 0.565 0.636 0.444 53 97 33 10-'13 0.095 0.189 0.766 0.289 33 112 17 -0.278 0.772 0.730 0.449 19 55 19 Furyk's record is horrible in the better ball / fourball format. I think that may be due to his relative lack of distance where it's harder for him to contribute much and bogey avoidance (his strength) is less important than making birdies. I expect Furyk's often been set up in a fourball pairing like Kuchar and Watson in '14 where the relatively short, but good putter / short game guy (Kuchar) was expected to complement the long hitter (Watson). Watson and Kuchar made many birdies, but still got smoked by two superior ball-strikers with average putting due to the better ball / fourball format. Rose's excellent short game helped that team in the alternate shot/foursomes format where their ball-striking was maybe less of an overt advantage than in better ball.
    • Yeah. Their products have been really solid. The 5C was iffy, but then again, the price was dirt cheap (relatively speaking). I may or may not be working for a company that supplies parts for them now, so I hope they get more popular.
    • It's all part of the deal. Especially when you are golfers like us (note my HI). Look at it this way. A couple of weeks ago I traveled three hours to our TST outing in Norwalk, OH and proceeded to barf on my shoes for 18 holes solid. Had one of my best rounds last week. It happens. Get away from it for a bit, get over it and when you come back you'll do better.
    • This sounds really really dull.  The kind of dull I'd really like to get used to seeing n my own game.
