PostSubject: Praying before Putting?   Sat Aug 24, 2013 11:14 pm

Often I see people lift up their putter in front of them, facing the hole and close an eye or two eyes before they put. I always wonder wat is it they are actually looking at or visualizing? Never got a chance to ask thou, so thot I'll see if anyone here can enlighten me so that maybe I can also use it to pray for the put to fall!

Wat about those that check all around 360 degree and practice 3-4 times and still miss even the line?

This is called Plumb Bobbing which is a method used on the putting green to find which way a putt will break.

Saw over the wkend, LPGA rookie Charley Hull also has a very different way of lining up her putt. Well, at least she is zhun.  What a Face  

Ok to be fair, this picture isnt the most glamorous but normally she looks better!  cheers




Ok, that is all folks, sorry for digressing. Smile

Yes, this was wat I was referring to! Plump bobbing is it? How does this actually work thou? How can u see which way the green will break by lifting the putter this way? Any expert can explain?
