    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    I dont have to think about anything, I pick my line, I putt, ball go in. Reading greens is not my issue.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?
    Pushes, pulls. I've switched to cross-handed to minimize face rotation on longer putts. I've even gone to the claw to completely take out the hands on short putts. Those things have helped a bit, but I feel like the putter could help even more.
    3) What is your handicap?

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well? No thought involved - aim, pull back, swing through, ball has perfect end over end roll. (hopefully those days match up with a good green reading day too)
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly? Overthinking every single aspect of the stroke from set up to followthrough.
    3) What is your handicap? 4.2

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    When I see the ball starting on the intended line, confidence builds and it typically ends up a solid putting day.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?
    Overthinking. Speed might be off, then forget about making a decent stroke and starting line gets out of whack. Snowball from there.

    Pllleeeeasseee pick meee, I am dying to get my hands on one, but nobody around me other than the private clubs has a fitter.

    The Questions
    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well? I'm hitting all my putts pure, they roll on intended lines.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly? SHORT PUTTS. I'm known to miss 2 and 3 footers. Sometimes I struggle with very long putts getting the ball within 3-5ft.
    3) What is your handicap? 12.

    What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    Confidence. Simple as that when I am putting well (very rarely) I have confidence.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly? Short putts, Line (Left Eye Dominant) and lack of confidence.
    3) What is your handicap? I am currently a 9. Ball striking I am a 4-5. Putting I am about a 36 handicap or so it feels like I am on most days

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    When putting well maintaining a square face (hitting my line) seems effortless, typically however, hitting my line and matching arc to club face is where I struggle.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?
    When putting poorly I don't struggle with speed, but hitting my intended putting line. Alignment aids are helpful but the concept behind reducing the torque vector in the L.A.B. putter seems like it matches perfectly with where I struggle.

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    like my stroke is simple, backswing and through-stroke match and are in sync, and all is right in the world
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?
    usually my rhythm is off, typically when pace of greens are different from one another in a given round

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well? I'm very relaxed and confident, nothing feels "yippy". My head is much more focused and thought free, and I don't have to analyze much because I'm addressing the ball knowing it has a great chance of going in. Putts within 10-12 feet feel like a fraction of the distance. The ball always feels like butter off the face and rolls true.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly? Distance control is my number one challenge. This has less to do with misjudging the putt versus what the real issue is, which is focusing on so many of the other variables I'm less confident in during that moment. If my answer to question #1 is on point, distance control seems to come naturally. My secondary issue is inaccuracy caused by the yips, which are there from the lack of confidence some days. It seems like the harder you try to put on a good stroke, the harder it is to actually strike it well.

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well? I feel like I will make the putt. I feel confident in my stroke and I am able to relax more and feel the putter head throughout the stroke.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly? Distance control.

  • d1kingofkingsd1kingofkings Kingman Members Posts: 117 ✭✭✭

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well? Nothing can go wrong, ball comes off on line and speed is perfect. Soft buttery stroke no matter the distance of putt.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly? Second guessing everything, not starting the ball off where I want. Over stroking, under stroking...not stroking!
    3) What is your handicap? 12

  • Rory4PresRory4Pres Members Posts: 1,044 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    Heaven. If I read the putt correctly and execute correctly, it maximizes my chances of making the putt. Even when I miss one but executed it correctly (I just misread it or hit a bump), I leave the green confident.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?
    Staying confident, especially on the short ones. When putting poorly, I take an in-depth look at my stroke to try and determine what is causing the poor results.

    I have been wanting to give one of these a go, but nobody around here has one for me to try :/. Please pick me!

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well? When I am putting well, I feel very relaxed. I can see my line perfectly, and my hands and putterface feel like they are one.
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly? When I am putting poorly, I struggle with distance control on the longer putts, and I cannot feel where "square" is with the face.

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    Stroke has great, smooth tempo while making great contact on the putter face. This results in the ball starting on its intended line with proper pace.

    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?
    Distance control tends to be my biggest struggle when I'm putting poorly. I'll also pull the ball left, oftentimes missing shorter putts of less than 4 feet.

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    Feels like the hole is 1" bigger in diameter. I can just line it up and let it rip. Long putts feel like I'll be within 2' of hole and easy to see lines
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?
    Small hole, unsure of line and pace. Doesn't feel smooth at all. Don't start ball on line well

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well? It feels like I can make it from anywhere on the green or at least hit a great lag putt and have a tap in for my next putt.

    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly? It is probably getting in the right mental state. I know when I lip something out or have a really poor 3 or 4 putt it can affect me on the next hole(s)

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?

    Feels like point and shoot - like I’m watching from one of those camera angles on TV behind the ball and you know right off the face if it’s on the line or not.

    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?

    Touch - hammering short ones through the line or leaving lag puts woefully short

    1) What does it feel like when you’re putting well?
    Confidence - when i am consistently hitting the center of the face I feel like I can be in "attack-mode" on the greens and sink putts from distance
    2) What is the biggest challenge when you’re putting poorly?
    Control of the clubface... Have a tendency to miss to both sides of the sweetspot. Distance control and start line suffer and it becomes a bad day on the greens. Playing defense, trying not to three putt.
