Feel like this would bring too many smaller muscles into play (imagine standing over a 10 footer for the win) instead of the common putting principles of using the bigger, more stable muscles to stabilize and swing the putter's head. Such an awkward position he has to stand in to make this work. Just my opinion, haven't tried myself so i could be wrong...

I could be wrong, but it looks awfully close to the rule that says the putter has to be longer heel to toe than it is from face to back of putter.

After watching him this year and looking at his putting stats......I was sure this experiment would end sometime soon. Then I looked at his conventional putting stats from last year. Ouch!

I agree that it looks awfully close to breaking a rule, but based on his history I'm sure it has been made as close to the edge of the legal dimensions as possible.

 

It has been deemed illegal. The shaft is nonconforming

Actually both of these are legal. The one they deemed illegal was more center shafted. The USGA told him if the shaft was moved to the back of the putter it would be okay.

He's actually insane. It's not just an act I guess.

Soon he's gonna start going by a different name. Hes pissed Mac O'grady is already taken.

Apparently the USGA has been harassing him weekly over the putting style and now the putter. He had a backup with the shaft near the back already built so he could continue with his putting approach. The USGA has been whining at him about his approach reducing the skill needed to putt. Sounds like they are preparing a Snead maneuver or anchoring debacle. The USGA should really spend their time concentrating on the long overdue rules update and leave putters and putting alone for awhile.

Fine line between genius and insanity, but this lad may have crossed the threshold a while back!

I've heard he is considering "Ron Mexico" but he is not sure if Mike Vick owns the patent.

Hmmmmm

 

Well.

 

When all else fails.

 

Was he struggling on the greens? This seems drastic (I would consider putting with a wedge before this). I may be wrong though.

I was wondering if he had been previously struggling as well. He has obviously played great golf putting normally. Why change it once you get to the big leagues?

Has the USGA actually been watching him putt? Obviously not. He's 145th in strokes gained putting.

Didn't he putt sidesaddle a bunch in college?

 

And there's no reason he'd need to move on to a different putting style. I'm not sold that sidesaddle is better, but I do think one can putt at least as well sidesaddle as conventionally.

You assume the USGA is rational. I offer the anchoring rule debacle as a counter example to your assumption.

Excess of vocabulary and few outlets to expound. Patrons of the WRX will thus suffer! :swoon:
