Advice on How to Putt Like Webb


#1

Any advice on getting the specs right on an arm-lock putter like the one that Webb Simpson and Kuchar have now popularized?

There seems to be a lot to take into account including getting the correct length based on body type (arm length to the ground so that it rests properly against forearm before the elbow, etc), higher loft (since the putter will be pressed forward, thus de-lofting, etc).

Anyone here played with one or know what to look for, what mistakes to avoid?

Thanks!

Advice? Perhaps avoid it altogether? My buddy did it for like a week. He’s 5’9" which may have been part of the problem. Here’s a video that may help. I’d keep away from this if I were you (then again, I side saddled for a while- highly recommend that method.)
