I gotta agree with you guys on this one. A grip with a flat side like what Bryson uses would make this much easier, mostly because it would make placement on the forearm much more consistent. A longer grip would also be great, although I don’t mind having my finger tips on the tapered part of the grip.

28 putts today with the first real round with the putter. I shot -4 68 and I made some great putts. I only hit 1 bad putt, all the other putts were just misread.

Putted yesterday on less than favorable greens (recent punch and sand).  Didn't putt any better or worse than I would have with my regular putter.  I did find that having to take longer strokes to overcome sand had the tendency to get off line.  This is not the fault of the putter, but rather the clown holding the putter.  Putted several from the fringe, one from 6 inches on 2nd cut with similar results I would normally expect.  I birdie the first hole (par 5) with a 8 foot putt to win a skin, as well as one putting another par 5 for another skin.

I've not been able to get out for a round in the last few days, due to some atrocious weather, and it is supposed to snow here on Saturday. WTF?!? 

Anyway, I've still been practicing a decent amount inside, and I can say I'm getting quite comfortable with the armlock. I'm feeling like I can make a pretty consistent stroke, but whether I'm actually improving my putting remains to be seen. 

Does anyone have any questions? Or requests on how to test?

I would be very interested to see if it improves your 4 to 10 foot putts and how comfortable you feel lagging a putt from 20 feet plus

Such great conversation and questions in here by everyone. 

This is obviously a putter style that has a lot of interest.

I feel extremely confident inside 10ft yesterday I made 100% of my putts inside 10ft. Distance control was fantastic. My longest 2nd putt was 18” and my I made my only putt over 40ft.

I have a tournament tomorrow on very tough greens so that will be a tough test.

So far, I'm doing pretty well from 4-10 feet. My speed control is day-to-day although that isn't much different than it was before. I've had days where I get every lag putt to tap in range, and I've had days where I can't seem to get the ball into a 10 foot circle. I guess I just need more practice.

Played my last round of golf before surgery using the putter.  It was a scramble and the greens were still healing from punch/sand work, but I felt like I putted pretty well.  Made a couple of mid to longer putts.  Those that I missed were left within tap in range.

I hope your surgery goes well and that you have a speedy recovery!!

Just a quick update to my progress, I'm still struggling to feel completely comfortable, and be consistent. Consistency is one of the main things I'd like this putter to give me and it hasn't yet, although I'm probably just being impatient. This putter is showing flashes of brilliance, and flashes of darkness. 🙂 For example, my round yesterday, I had 24 putts and putted lights out. Today, I had 37 putts (no, not a typo), and couldn't make anything outside 2 inches. It's a work in progress, but I am moving in the right direction. 

 

During the 37 putt round were your misses pulls or pushes or a combination of both?

Mostly pushes but a few pulls mixed in there for good measure. My reads weren't great either, but I wasn't even hitting the line I read, whether the read was right or not. Speed control was on point though.

Speed control is a good thing.  At least your putts ended up in the right zip code. 😉

Work was hectic this week and I subsequently missed a few days of outdoor practice. We have weather rolling through soon that will probably cost me a few more outdoor practice sessions this week. So I headed out in the chill & 40 mph gusts this evening for 40 foot wind tunnel testing. The majority resembled the three in the video. Bumpy freshly punched greens and wild random gusts were conditions conducive to my camera falling far more often than the putts.

Apologies in advance for the soundtrack - the grill was having  live music night.
