Quote of the Day
Among golfers the putter is usually known as the payoff club and how right that is! Putting is in fact a game in itself.
It must be admitted that science has its castes. The man whose chief apparatus is the differential equation looks down upon one who uses a galvanometer, and he in turn upon those who putter about with sticky and smelly things in test tubes.
Gilbert Newton Lewis
My only focus after I start the putter away from the ball is keeping the back of my left wrist as fat as possible from start to finish. This is critical to keeping the putterhead and ball moving straight down the target line after impact. It's also how Rory Mcllroy squares his putterface, and obviously it works for him.
These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow.
I will fall in love with any golf course that you have to drive the ball straight. You understand what I'm saying? That's my advantage. My advantage wasn't putting. In fact, I wasn't even a great putter or a good putter.
I've really got no complaints about the way I played, just extremely frustrating with the putter and I'm sure there's a lot of other players saying the same thing except the guy who's going to win the golf tournament.
I caddied for a guy who was a very good player, and he gave me a set of clubs, just a starter set: 5-iron, 7-iron, 9-iron, putter and driver. I just loved it. How I developed my swing was to just grab a club and start banging balls.
The greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow.
I've stated my position, and that is that we do not need a contraption to play the game of golf. I would hope that we'd play under one set of rules, and those rules would include a ban on the long putter hooked to the body in some way, shape or form.
I'm much better off the tee. I'm not a great putter. I do not have a good short game.
I was the first to win a major with a belly putter, and I've spent hours practicing that way, so I hope they don't ban anchoring.
I've never been one to throw clubs, break clubs, or use bad language on the golf course. I've played with golfers who've done that, and I really hate to see it. If I did something like that, my dad would come get the putter and hit me upside the head with it. I knew better.
I use an Arnold Palmer putter that was probably built back in 1954.
I want an ending that's satisfying. I'm more of a classical writer than a modernist one in that I want the ending to be coherent and feel like an ending. I don't like when it just seems to putter out. I mean, life is chaotic enough.
Right before I start the putter back, I think about making solid contact. This brings your attention to the back of the ball and helps keep your head still at impact, which is a must. Many amateurs take a peek down the line too soon, and that can cause all sorts of mis-hits.
You should never get set over the ball and then aim your putter face. If you do it in that order, you can easily lose sight of your intended line. Instead, aim the face down your line first, then settle your body into position.
When I'm on with my putting, I'm as good a putter as there is, probably.
I'd like to see something done about the long putters and belly putters. But I go back and forth on that. I've actually worked with a belly putter.
Never break your putter and your driver in the same round or you're dead.
I've always used a mallet putter on tour. I get too much face rotation with a blade.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
