Would a person who is usually really upright with their putter (toe in the air at address) benefit from a center shafted putter? His putting path doesnt really fall into a Straight back straight through, or arced catagory. It is kinda a combonation of both. Is it correct to say that although he may like to hold his hands low, w/ a center shafted putter there is more a a chance that his eyes will be over the ball more, and that he will come into more clean contact with the putter face? Any help is appreciated...

    The first question is "Why is your toe up in the air?"

    Having a putter custom fit for you will allow you to have your hands where you want them.... and to level the sole of the putter. Depending on the putter style you choose a little toe up won't kill you. That said it really is all about the stroke.

    Having a combination of strokes, are you inside to straight down the line, or what is your combination stroke? With the toe up you are in danger of scrubbing the heel and closing the face.

    The variables that come into play with a center shaft putter should also include shaft type and kickback related to your eye dominance.
