Geek Mode Quick Tip 25

‪Geek Mode🤓Is learning to play golf at a high level a process of discovery or invention?‬

‪QuickTip25 when considering a putter DO NOT judge in terms of toe hang alone. Burnt Edges suggests matching shaft axis to face matching the size of your arc. Match the cog location to the rotational speed required at impact to square the face.‬

Quicktip 24

QuickTip 24 When I see a player with a big forward press to start the stroke, I always check the head weight of the putter. A forward press is great as long as you do it for the right reasons. Overcoming a heavy putter not one of them.

Quick Tip 23

This drawing is from the Reference Guide of my online course. It asks the player to consider whether they see perceive the target better coming into the ball or from the ball forward. Which one is best for you? Then consider your dominant eye.

Quick Tip 22

We have been suggesting for years to let your eyes tell you where to stand. Rory has made some real gains in his putting. This is a photo from his Nike days. The second from From Pebble Beach for a new book by @KenBrownGolf. One Putt. Based on his comments about seeing the line, I think it might be a book worth reading.

This putter, produces this measurement on @captogolf, that matches the Profile 8 has worked out very well for me. Somewhere out there is a perfect fit for you.

Quick Tip 20

These are Capto screen shots of a Face to Path relationship for a D 1 player with a full toe hang blade putter. It shows an open to path/arc from start to finish. Scroll down to see the path and how she adjusts. This is a very typical pattern of a player where the rotational value of the putter is greater than the requirement of the arc.

Quick Tip 19

Brad Fellers @SchoolIndiana and I built these 9 putters to match each of the 9 Profiles. Each exactly the same as the other with 2 exceptions. Shaft axis and offset. These parameters have a real influence on a stroke and how it travels along the arc.

Quick Tip 18

 I would suggest in today’s world of heavier heads and different cog locations, a discussion of toe hang is no longer a valid part of a putter fit discussion. ‬

Quick Tip 17

The lie angle of the putter that fits you best can be an indication of what toe hang you should consider.  The flatter the lie more toe hang, more upright less. Lots of other things to consider, but this is a good start.

Quick Tip 16

‪Three ways you can improve your putting. Copy the method of a successful player, copy a theoretical method, or discover your own best way.  We like the third and have built a system to guide you along the way. #burntedgeconsulting‬
