About blowing by the basket, it's not like most of us that use this shot can't power the shot down, it's more about what line is available to you. If there is nothing constricting the line or...

I've seen my competitors give me the :eek: quite a few times when I've either canned or just missed ~100' FH "putts". :D Honestly, I don't think it's a "new" technique, it's just that not a whole lot...

Maybe for you, not necessarily for everyone. A flick is more of a natural motion for me. Putt jump, again, for me, has way too many moving parts.

I usually will only run straight at it if there is a backstop or I'm playing dubs. I typically will play the fade to give it a chance but not blow by too far.



Completely agree here. My...

:hfive: back atcha man!

It was a sad day when I left my 6-month old ion sitting in 18's basket. Well, maybe 30 minutes until I got home when I put it's sibling (quints) in the bag. I had 5 (now...

I'm in agreement with those that say it's probably not the best solution to inside the circle putts. However, it's definitely a skill that is worth developing. I use a flick putt quite often but I'm...

It's definitely normal if it is puddle-topped. IMO, that's when they are at their best. I've been using ions for my putter for a couple of years and I've got a stack of them that are nice and...

If the course that gogo referred to is the one I'm thinking of, he is absolutely correct in that the local club doesn't want to do anything. It's really sad that a long-standing club has turned into...

One thing that no one really mentions when these threads pop up is that if the courses you play are light polluted, glow discs don't work near as well as LEDs. Just thought I would mention that. Like...

ssgruvn, I should be out at Dolo sometime on Sunday. Don't know when though. I can definitely help you with your FH and can help as well with the BH. I started playing FH only but have moved to a...

I don't think that this gets said enough around here. Like 3P said, putting is all about confidence. I always shake my head when I see people practicing "misses" around the practice basket. Standing...

While I somewhat agree with Rockwell (speed/strength beyond a certain distance), I just don't agree with that sentiment for sub-300'. 300' is quite easily attainable with proper FH form without any...

I use the same setup as zenny as there is a lot of light pollution at the courses near me. Glow discs don't seem to work well enough here. The red LEDs are really easy to spot and don't mess with...

Aim, I'm glad someone else noticed this too. Like a dumbass, I left my 2yr old SP Ion in the basket one day. I replaced it with a new one and it definitely felt a little more "springy." I stuck...

Personally, I don't like the term "fairway" because, to me (and most likely new players), the implication is that you throw these discs "from the fairway." I like the term "control" for anything...
