I am also fascinated by aspects of specifics of putting   Releasing the putter head for you is very important. Your right hand is the dominant hand your optical preferences are for as little stimula

I actually went through a putter fitting a couple years back and was fit into a standard 34" 71*. As I've later come to realize, it didn't take into account eye dominance and how I see the line from b

1, Scotty Cameron California Monterey, I love the looks of it and that in turn gives me more confidence

2, loft: 4º lie: 71º length 35"

3,  2 years

4,  I try to stay consistent when I'm off everything feels foreign... I currently have the Phil Mickleson press forward before I pull the trigger and putt.

3. I have yet to roll it on the course

 

4. Yes, haven't changed my putting stroke

 

5. I would say a 5, but it got better towards the end of last season and I'm hopeful I will improve greatly this year after my putter fitting.

2. 35" 3* loft 70 lie. These are standard for the putter

3. 1 year

1. Ping Ketsch

2. Straight Arc, 32.5", standard loft and lie.

3. 3 months

4. My setup and overlapping grip has remained the same in my 3 years playing.

5. I'll give myself a 5. It's the weak part of my game and will be my main focus this year.

1, What putter do you use and why?

Boccieri Heavy Putter C2-DF Original Women's;  because of the weight and the short shaft are perfect.

2, What are the specs of your putter?

31" long;  3* loft;  72* lie  Head weight 465g;  total weight 900g; bright SS with CNC milled face

3, How long have you been using the current putter in your bag?

4 years; found it in a used club bin at Golfsmith for $35

4, Do you commit to a specific method?

I use the Kenny B method; eyes over the ball, slight forward press, SBST; shorter backswing with slight acceleration to a longer follow-through

5, How do you rate your putting performance on a scale of 1 to 10?

8, only because there is room for improvement; good distance control, but could do better on L2R breakers.

Fascinating. You really have put some thought into your choices and are committed long term. I wouldn't play you for high stakes

Of course, I may be delusional.  :)

 

I was probably a 3 or 4 with my old putter.  Sometimes I was pretty good, other times I could 3-putt all day.  Once I picked up that putter, I knew it was the one for me; but that being said, I can NOT pick up any other putter and make a decent putt with it.  I try every time I go into a golf store; I migrate to the putter section.  I would love to have one of the putters listed on the other putter thread, but I know that I would be a terrible putter with any of them; at least until I got use to it.  But I have no confidence that I would ever be as good as I am with the Heavy.

1, What putter do you use and why?

Scotty Cameron Coronado

 

2, What are the specs of your putter?

35" 4* standard lie with a Best Grips Micro Perforated Pistol Grip

I have a strong arc putting stroke.

 

3, How long have you been using the current putter in your bag?

over 2 years

 

4, Do you commit to a specific method?

Yes, I am an advocate of "Instinct Putting."

  1. Stand behind the ball and determine where the ball must enter the hole.
  2. Follow the line the putt must follow back to the ball.
  3. Adjust right or left so that I am looking at target line.
  4. Step up to the putt along the target line.
  5. Focus now totally on speed, while imagining the ball following the line into the hole.
  6. Look at the hole while making the practice strokes.
  7. Now, focus on a specific point opposite the side the ball must enter.
  8. Look at the hole when making the stroke.

I tend to give the ball more of a pop, but sometimes on short putts I make a longer stroke and chase the ball to the hole. I care nothing about "the stroke". I am target oriented and that is all that matters. The stroke will take care of itself.

 

5, How do you rate your putting performance on a scale of 1 to 10?

9 at least on my home greens.

need practice on different greens.

You are in no way delusional.

 

It does not matter what you use as long as you putt well. There are some rally pretty putters out there and most people base their choice on looks and feel. whilst these are important factors, the most important is 'Performance'. 

 

The market is moving towards heavier putters and there are more pros than you realise using backweighting. European tour average length is 33.25" with many at 31" or 32"

1. Never Compromise Sub 30 - Type 50 Belly Putter

2. It's cut to 33 inches and fitted with a Superstroke Fatso, loft? Yeah not so sure.

3. Been in play for about 12 months

4. I neither commit to a method or the stroke!

5. 4 out of 10, reckon I may be one of the worst putters I've seen playing as low as I do.

 

 

Well that hasn't cheered me up ahead of a day at work!

1. ping ketsch

2. 33" std.

3. since last summer

4. straight back, and straight through, my timing ratio is everything

5. 7/10, I make a large percentage inside 10', and can leave them close inside 30', but the extra long ones I can possibly 3 putt.

 

I am taking aimpoint express this spring, as my biggest problem with putting is reading the greens.

I look forward to your responses

1. Odyssey White Hot Pro #7. I saw so many pros, especially Euro guys, using them. Luke Donald was putting on a putting show for the ages with one a couple years ago for instance.

 

2. 35.5", 1 degree upright, standard loft, SuperStroke Ultraslim 1.0 grip. $120 total for a complete custom putter.

 

3. Two seasons.

 

4. Method: not really. I was fit using the Ping ap years ago, and used those specs when ordering. It identified me as straight back, straight through, which I've used face balanced putters for some time. I try to keep my hands up high like Steve Stricker, and the longer shaft length actually puts my dominant eye (right) in a better spot for lining up my putts. These specs have worked well.

 

5. I'll give myself a 7. Definite room for improvment, but its been getting better for a while.

I look forward to putting now.

1, What putter do you use and why? Strong arc SeeMore M3 mallet - RifleScopeTech really works for me - and I love the looks of it.


2, What are the specs of your putter? 34" - 4deg loft - 70deg lie. 


3, How long have you been using the current putter in your bag? 1 year


4, Do you commit to a specific method? I don't have a specific green-reading method (though I do need one). Re my stroke, I follow a 2:1 tempo and simply hide the little red SeeMore RST dot.


5, How do you rate your putting performance on a scale of 1 to 10? Could be much better - 6/10. I rarely 3-putt, but hardly ever 1-putt (though that may be more of a reflection of proximity to the hole with approaches ;) )
