Seems like for a big city we don't necessarily have all the bases covered as much as we should. 

 

Anyone know of 'The Guy' to see for these aspects of the game in Sydney?

They're both vital components.

Used to be that all top players used blades now plenty use mallets.

Are you using the best style of putter ?

The problem I find with putter fitting is that it is mostly static and still focused on alignment. Even the cool clubs putter fit I had with all the cameras, the fitter was still trying to line me up at address and talking about having less rotation through the stroke. Even though we know Tiger sets up open and squares the face at impact and Jordan Speith admitted last year he spent too much time trying to perfect his putting stroke and didn't putt as well. I think fitting is really important and I like the science but it shouldn't be fighting the individuals natural tendencies.

Have been to Puregolf and had the fitting. Came out with a 2 ball mallet with a lot of weight in the handle. Never really liked it and never really got used to it. Came up short quite a lot due to the perceived weight of the putter. Probably decelerating too. Currently just got an Evnroll thing from Ebay which feels nice but suspect it isn't fitting properly.

Yeah tend to agree. Problem is also what facilities you have at your Golf course. Not many of us have a US style Country Club setup with massive practice areas. We've got 3 bay net and a practice green with different feeling grass and no holes. Awesome.

I agree, putter fittings like any fitting can be a little bit artificial as when I are actually playing golf you not just standing there and hitting the same shot time and time again.


However I can't imagine being able to hit good consist putts if u can't line up proper....

Even though we know Tiger sets up open and squares the face at impact

Really, I've never heard of of this.....ever!!!

Tiger is an arc putter were is sets up square to the target line and keeps the blade square to the arc. He takes it back a little inside and then releases the blade on the way through.

I personally don't like adding extra weights in the putter to keep it stable during the putting stroke.

When it comes to putting most people's natural tendencies are ****..... especially the ppl on golf forums. Hahaha

Sorry if it's a bit rude to post a link to another forum but here is the link.

I believe it is quite common. I aim my putter 5 degrees to the right at address but square it up at impact without fail. The more someone tries to square me up at address the worse I putt. My body has a bias where the left side closes and the right side opens. My collar sits on the left hand side of my neck and my belt buckle turns to the right during the day. I set up awesome as a left hander but unfortunately I can't hit it 50m left handed.  :( My swing is steep and I love hitting short irons but can't hit a fairway with the driver. I hit a lot of 3 woods off the tee.

There are very few people who are perfectly balanced. Nearly everyone has a bias of some sort. Not only are we right or left handed we can favour a leg or an eye or some people hold themselves up with their abdominals while others hold themselves up with their spine. Tiger is pigeon toed which means his hips are tight and he doesn't turn that well. His swing has always been steep compared to an Ernie Els or Adam Scott who have hips that open when they walk. Hence why I think he needs to set the face open at address to allow for the closing of the club on the way through.

Something a little off topic but still related is why they don't run clockwise in athletic events. It is known that horses can favour a certain direction and running anti clockwise especially at speed would clearly favour some athletes.

If that is legit, then I've learnt something new. Thanks.

Good luck. I'm still trying to find a coach that incorporates strike in to the lessons let alone someone that actually deals with short game properly.
