The proper technique on how to break the shaft of your putter in half

Recommended Posts

What I don't understand is why he broke it after MAKING the putt.

If he had three putted from there I would get where he was coming from but he made it.

 

Good technique though, he has clearly had some practice.😄👌

I also thought the timing of choosing to do that was a bit off, didnt check but maybe (presumably) round wasnt going all that well. However, technique is commendable, get him on golf channel soon for a little instructional series

I would surely give him a perfect 10 for execution, it indeed was a clean break.   However, as style points go, I'll give him a 6 at best.  Using his knee showed a lack of creativity.  I think the guys that break them over their heads do so with a bit more style for example.   And that he walked off carrying the pieces as opposed to a good toss or throw shows a lack of intensity.   As others have noted, his timing lack a bit of style as well, that is, he did so after making a par.  If he had done so after a double bogey, for example, his performance would have been much more meaningful to his audience.

Style/break points are more like a 4 if a 10 is Woody Austin back in '97 at Hilton Head.

I don't get how someone gets that angry at golf. But I guess missing a putt that could potentially cost you hundreds of thousands yeah I'd probably break things also

What's this guys ranking?  How's it working out?

 

Let's see...

 

DJ is #1

Brooks is #2

Both are pretty level headed

 

I think he should take an anger management class.

That was kind of my thought.  Why break it after you just made it?  Unless that was the very first putt he had made all day then I could see it.

But the big difference between he and us hacks is that he can just run to the trailer at the end of the round and replace it. I have to go buy another $400 putter. That's why I don't break clubs anymore

Yeah, but if your putting bad enough to want to break, chances are you going to buy a new putter anyway. Might as well have some fun with it.😉😄

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.

      Trying to not get overly excited for Jan golf trip and hoping that mother nature doesn't deposit her first snowstorm on us in New England around my departure date.
