  1. Practice indoor mat over concrete floor. Super fast Almost like stimp 14. Barely touch it and ball rolls and sometimes speeds up. Probably not the best way to practice Reminds me of few greens that if I’m caught above the hole on a really dry day that it really tough to get close. I find that if I can read those green well and just start the ball the proper path I have a chance. In these situations reading may be most important and just nudge the ball I’m interested to see how the tough the greens are during the Masters this fall
  2. I’m going back to SS 5.0 I tend to get to handsy with the thinner grips For myself I find that I’m more consistent with a shoulder motion arc type stroke but my hands wants to get involved and rotate the putter head too much with the thinner grips.
  3. I share the same feeling I visualize wedge sending the ball high and close to the hole with my LW or SW I tried and wasn’t very consistent with a low lofted iron chipping from off the green. I rather deloft my wedge if I have lots of green to work with for a “chip and roll” than using 7 iron I think as long it works for you then stick with whatever method is consistent.
  4. I haven’t try that I do practice chipping lefty and that help smooth out my tempo Sometimes what happens when I “chip yip”is that I look at the hole rather than the spot somewhere between the hole and ball and ball zooms by the hole. I find trying to swing/putt in the other direction no matter how awkward it feels helps me a lot Good luck at crosshanded chipping
  5. Practicing putting indoors Switching from cross handed to conventional. I’m usually a reverse overlap but I finding that if I place my hands closer together and do a double reverse overlap either with my cross handed or conventional method I don’t rotate the face angle as much Feels odd but I more confident with making shorter putts that way.
  6. Have not been to the course for few weeks and just doing indoor putting practice. I find that for longish putts I tend to have the ball A fraction forward in the stance and have longer follow thru and slight move me putter upwards at the end of the followthru For makeable shortish putts I polarize my ball position more middle online with my upper body like my sternum
  7. I’m will schedule a putter fitting It will interesting what it may show. I know I do like putters with toe hang The more toe hang the better feel for me Just looking at the collection of my putters . I tend to be consistent with putter than are moderate toe hang
  8. So what cnosil says that Ping app measure " arc" is really rotation of the putter head then the Ping app isnt really that accurate. the putter path may be going straight but rotating and PIng says that "arc " stroke Has any one use the other method to measure path/rotation more accurately? My preference is toe hang putter and Im curious to know how much arc and rotation I really have
  9. I like wolf. It’s fun. Competitive and enjoyable no matter why level your playing partners are at
  10. I download the iping2.0 app yesterday. Seems to less user friendly than the original version and seems to do only one fitting rather than multiple trial I can’t even find a cradle being sold around anymore
  11. I read it’s call the “fall line” too. For what ever reason I am not as comfortable with the right to left break. I walk a bit more to read my line and use more of a straight line aimpoint type strategy.
  12. Working on short putts and when I’m focused on specific part of the cup my aiming becomes more accurate. On flat putts I have a tendency to be left biases and will look at the entry or exit points on the left part of the cup My preference is to stroke at inside left edge with square/slightly open face (less than 2 degrees if possible) I’m gong to test this out with Laser and see if there is a SAM lab locally I can get tested
  13. I naturally cut my putts. I’m not sure how that would fit in. Over the years I worked on developing an arc stroke. I’m not sure SBST is natural.
  14. I’m overthinking this. Two popular web instructions (Chris Ryan and Clay Ballard) says the putting stroke length should 1/3 backstroke and 2/3 forward stroke. Two PGA players says the opposite. The foreward stroke is shorter than the backstroke Luke Donald. “Like hitting a hammer” Brandt Snedeker “The follow through is nonexistent“ I trust this forum and the it’s insightful members to shed some wisdom for this dichotomy
  15. Practicing short putts and find that for left to right sliders deviate differently than my normal routine When I read a break that runs toward me I can see one line But for the break that runs away I have to see “two lines” one from the cup to the apex and another from the ball to apex and kind of join those two lines I think if I go through this routine and read from both sides I will not miss as many left to righter So I what I’m saying is I can can see a draw curve easier. When force to imagine a fade I have to think of two straight paths intersecting, if that makes any sense
