great segue into Mouldy's putting.

I am still not sure what part of his set up changes enough that he is hitting his putter on the ground on the backswing on a downhill putt. I would have thought that if he is standing on his feet and his legs are the same length as they are when he is standing on a flat green, that he and his feet and shoulders and swing path is always parallel to the ground, no matter how steep a slope he's standing on  

Logic has no place in these halls Bump. He probably putts off his back foot like he plays every other shot.

You'll have to do better Bump. This one was too easy to find.

Simple physics Bump.

If you keep everything parallel to the slope you have more weight on the front foot. More weight on the front foot leads to a steeper AoA which is the opposite of what is required whilst putting. Hence a more concentrated effort is required to keep the putter low leading to the accidental grounding of the putter on the way back.

Ps The rules forum is OOB. Snake infested hazard.

I had already done this one before I set the challenge and I decide where they go

 

what if I propose that any slope which will cause that much of a difference in the weight distribution will not have a ball sitting there to putt from?

 

And if, and I mean this is the most polite way I possible can, if you are unable balance your weight evenly, even on the most diabolical slope then perhaps walking upright is not for you. 

 

I believe that you are trying to look for factors/excuses that simply do not exist in this case.  If you can possibly discern a difference in angle of attack on a putt on a slope compared to flat while setting up to putt correctly, you're in the wrong game because you're not doing the golf right.

Over the last 2 weeks, I've decided to spoil myself a little.

Driver : 2016 M1 9.5 deg
Fairway: Titleist 915F 15 deg
Irons: 4-PW Titleist AP2 716
Wedges: TM Tour preferred EF R series 52 (8 bounce) & 58 (10 bounce)
Putter: 25 yo Ping Zing

In the market for something to close the gap between Fairway Wood and 4 iron. Always carried a 1 & 3 iron in the past, not sure if I'll go the same way or venture into the land of hybrids.. had a hit of the Titleist T-MB 3 iron this arvo and almost fell in love. Decisions, decisions.....

Just put these two things of beauty into my quiver. I'm absolutely in love with the Graphite Design shafts. I originally was looking at the Epic, but was seduced by the TM with these shafts. Attached File  IMG_0440.JPG   143.24KB   5 downloads

I was in a similar predicament; ended up putting a 7 wood into the bag. Flies as far as a 3 iron but with a much higher ball flight. Perfect for those par 3s that are over 200m.
