Strategy and Technique / Re: putting technique observations...........

Good observations... and a BTW for why I prefer a longer shafted putter. Setting up, I like having the end of the shaft an inch of so above the meaty pad of my left hand. I use a mostly conventional grip with a bit more overlap, almost all of my right hand overlaps the left, except for two fingers. Having the shaft locked in to the meat part of my left palm allows me to keep a feathery light grip without feeling a loss of control of the putter.

Hope that makes sense...

What is the length of the putter you play ?
I play mine at 36.5" because that length allows me to stand with a comfortable posture and have my eyes a bit inside of the target line. With 35" putters (or shorter) at address my eyes end up looking outside the target line.

Strategy and Technique / putting technique observations...........
« Last post by Oneputt on January 20, 2018, 03:54:56 PM »
Over the years I have observed two putting technique factors which I believe all consistently good putters use.

1) Relatively light grip pressure, which is maintained from address and throughout the stroke.

2) Stable lower body.

I've seen consistently good putters who stand tall at address, and others who crouch down, some who aim left, others who aim right, great ones who have the putter sole flush with the ground, others who have either the toe or heel well elevated, long strokes as well as short pop type strokes, inside to out paths , outside to inside paths, fast and slow tempos etc... So many, many different techniques can be effective at consistently making putts.
The two technique traits I list above are the ones I have observed that all consistently good putters seem to have.

Beautiful.  Now, what are you gonna do with all those??

I visit a practice putting green twice per week and each year play approximately 75 rounds of golf.
The length, lie, loft, weight, grip model etc... for each of my DH89's is the same, so there is no adjustment needed when rotating them from practice session to practice session or from round to round.
Byron has amazing talent and I consider it a privilege to play with the putters he produces :)

Thank you!

The maintenance crew at one of the courses I play , in an effort to get rid of Poa Annua, has taken to spraying a few greens with Round Up pesticide. I am glad to be able to play my Byron brushed stainless putter, because I believe the Round Up would harm any other putter finish.

Guys thank you for your patience.  My woodworking business has been gangbusters and I've been working a lot and focused on that.  That said..I have several new items in the hopper that I'm about to pull the trigger on and a release is in the near future.
