jh ive been putting like that for about 5 years. but more face on. its the
best method. there is a guy in the states that uses same method. look up
ozzie wonder. cheers. i made my own putter . for 30 dollars. its fantastic.
people always compliment me on my accuracy. cheers
Your comment could be my comment – almost word for word! I extended a two
ball putter around seven years ago and stuck a long fat grip on it. NOBODY
will putt against me for money these days, and I am considered to be a
The video was very rushed and the conditions were terrible so it didn’t
show just how good the method really is, I will do another video when the
green has been restored to a semblance of puttability, I can understand you
being a bandit with the system because I think I will be now as well, my
friend that used the method way back was the absolute best putter I have
ever seen, and and that includes Jack and Tiger, my friend just never
missed , and it didn’t matter what the greens were like, he was Count Yogi
like the way he just knocked putts in from everywhere.
I couldn’t get the method to work for myself back then because we used
short putters and small grips, today with the Odyssey 38 inch putter and
the big grip it is so easy to make the method work.
I know of the ‘Ozzie Wonder’ putter, but it is used with both hands being
in unison with the arms forming a triangle off the shoulders, the hands are
not ‘behind’ the grip but to the ‘sides’ of the grip equally, with the
method I am using I just feel I am ‘tossing’ the club head sideways with my
trail hand, with the trail hand feeling like it is 100% the instigator of
You certainly dont need an expensive putter , your clearly does the job, I
am only using the Odyssey because it suits me with the particular bend it
has in the shaft and the lie angle, and its adjustable for weight depending
on the type of greens you normally play, I think its a great way to putt.
This method changed me from someone who was nervous on the greens into
someone who couldn’t wait to get to the greens and sink those putts. The
rest of the game is not about hitting great shots with a fabulous swing, my
focus now is simply to get to the green in as few shots as possible and
then really enjoy the part that scares the pants of even some of the best
ball strikers in the world. Your confidence soars when you can really putt.
And I agree with you, this method has to be done with a long putter (38 –
40 inches), and a fat or fairly fat grip. I can’t swing a golf club yet due
to recent heart surgery, but I am back on the putting green and loving it!
no my right hand is behind also. yes it feeles like your bowling.
besutiful. it works for me. ha
dear jh,even chipping with rt hand works for me.only the ball takes more
backspin and checks quickly.best used when u would rather end up
short.super video thx.tyagi
Hi Tyagi, I am going to talk about chipping with the ‘dominant hand as well
because it works great, I will include it on the next video update on the
Your eyes are supposed to be over the ball? yours are not because of long
Four of the best putters in history, Ben Crenshaw/Justin Leonard/ Fuzzy
Zeoller/ Asoa Aoki all had the ball ‘outside’ their eye line, you have to
have your body segments and the putters specific length and lie to get your
eyes over the ball at address, and ‘which’ eye do you position over the
ball, it has to be the dominant eye if you are going to see the line as
your optics need to see the line.
If you play the ball up under your left eye and you are right eye dominant
you will see the line as being left of actual and subconsciously shove the
ball to the right , if you play the ball under your dominant eye you
invariably will see the target with parallax error which you need to allow
for, you have to do some testing to work that correction out.
I am very right eye dominant so I know I will be aiming to the right of the
actual target but because I know my error factor I adjust for the error, I
have my eyes inside the ball; line as well to make sure my balance is
towards my heels and not my toes, it easier to ‘push away’ from yourself
with the weight on the heels than the toes, and with the dominant eye in
and behind the putter delivery line, hope that doesn’t confuse you to much,
oh and the longer putter does exaggerate the amount my eyes are inside the
Hey JH have been using this method for 2-3 weeks now and is going very
well. I find I can start the ball more consistently on line and find more
putts are having a chance of going in. Also don’t find judging distance on
the long ones hard at all and the other thing it puts a great roll on the
ball. Very good.RegardsGlenn
Hi Glenn , you know I wish I had known how easy putting was with this style
when I started playing playing golf, , but then we didn’t have the type of
longer putters that I am using now with the bigger parallel grips which
makes it very easy to putt this way now.
Yeah I’ve got a very short putter in comparison to yours and it still works
very well. Glenn
How close to Sam Snead’s stance is your stance? You look very open.
