I'm a lefty and I often have problem of pulling putts - expecially short ones. Is there a style of putter (mallet, blade, etc) and a location of where the shaft enters the head (at back or center) - that would help alleviate the pulls?

 

thanks

 

If your left wrist is breaking down why not switch to the claw, takes the bottom hand right out of it.

There's not a putter that's going to fix this issue. You could set the putter face open, but that's going down a path I'd avoid at all costs.

i got a great tip before which help with any kind of putting style.

 

Just hold your putter with your left hand only and learn to putt like that, and right hand only and learn to putt like that. its a great drill to make your computer feel what your arms and shoulder should be doing.

 

any face balanced putter or for my case Napa style also should iron out the pull to left sensation.

I had the similar problem with my Odyssey 6600 putter so i switched to the mid mallet by Taylormade. I have a Taylormade Mezza Monza putter with the AGSi insert that seemed to work but i was still flipping my hands so i had a winn grip installed and the thing is money. This is what worked for me and i hope this helps, later Steve

Yes. Napa it is . its very hard to pull a napa for me .. a very slight curve or straight in and out stroke.

 

The one i have is a walter hagen special and it did suprised me too.

 

I got the impression Pitbull likes the Long neck and the Napa ... any connections?

 

There really shouldn't be any connections.

 

The long neck's face balanced, the Napa's a severe toe hang.

 

Face balanced = a straight back straight through stroke

 

Heel toe = gated stroke.

Zero. He has the longneck only because it is a rarer putter (circle T, welded longneck). He pulls out the blades (8802, Napa) when he feels his putting is going south, as he feels that he putts better with the blade (I don't believe it, but putting is all about the mindset), but has done some of his better putting with the delmar 3.5/jat style putter.

 

But then again, he's got 5-10 times as many putters as I have, so it's really hard to say what he gravitates toward, as it would to decide what style shoe Imelda Marcos prefers (the answer: all of them). :yahoo:

I think you just about said it with the "5-10 times as many putters....hard to say what he gravitates toward" There is no connection between the long necks I have and the Napa's.....nor the Anser styles or the mallets, or the belly's or the long putters. It's what I like to call an eclectic disease. By the way..not all long necks are face balanced. My Cameron Welded neck is about a 4:30 toe hang. Nor is the Tad Moore Giraffe I have.

 

Oh...and for the record...the current flavor of choice for the week/day/hour/minute is a Bridgestone Jumbo Ozaki signature blade.....8802 style :yahoo:

:bad: I knew it was up in the air with all your recent purchases, but I though you would have been bouncing between your delmar again and the zomo. You need to start some contests like Johnny's "what did I shoot" where you give the course, what was in the bag the last round, and how many putts you had in the last round. Our task would be to figure which putter you would use. :yahoo: Roll 'em straight Reid, roll 'em straight. :yahoo:

Neat Idea beruo...but that would mean giving a list of putters and keeping that up to date would be harder then keeping my bag pics the same as the signature! Plus it would take me a couple of days just to inventory the darn conglomeration. :bad:
