      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
      total bandit!

      Hi Terry,
      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.
      cheers JH

      Hi Lee,
      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
      the stroke.
      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.
      cheers JH

      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!

    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

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      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
      Putting .
      cheers JH

    Your eyes are supposed to be over the ball? yours are not because of long
    putter

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Hi Thomas,
      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
      ball.
      cheers JH

    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.
      cheers JH

    • <path_to_url> Glenn McFadgen

      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.
