BroD, there are no clips of Barry putting from 100 yards away in either of those videos.

Your distance recognition is as fail as your kung fu.

also, I'm kind of annoyed that Beato's vid is in here. "Here's my putting style you should emulate. You see how perfectly I miss this 12' putt?"

Pretty sure he means the camera is 100yds away... and I agree, that Beato clip is about the worst putting vid ever.

Would love to see a Nikko clinic on putting...

If anyone plays with Beato, maybe you can tell us if that's the way he putts or not. I think that that super jerky version of that putt is mostly for educational purposes, and that you should probably aim to have a more fluid follow-through.

Beato dosn't putt like that he is more of a spin putter on the course. That video is not very good but it is old. Here is the long Feldberg Putting video its very good http://vimeo.com/19847946

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.
Worst cut-through EVER at 8:43. Good thing that didn't cost Feldberg any money!

In that video he's just illustrating what the "finger spring" and short arm putting techniques look like. Doing it without a follow through like that makes it easier to feel but adding a follow through will help with power and consistency. He did the video becasue it's a difficult thing to try to visualize if you haven't actually seen it.

It looks silly, but I suggest trying it out if you haven't. Once you get that spring you'll find that it's really easy to get a super consistent line. All you have to do is line yourself up right and get that spring and you won't miss left or right.

Last I saw he was still using the same basic putt but he's been practicing it for 2+ years now and it looks a lot smoother, both in delivery and the flight of the disc. There's no ****ty wobble anymore.

Putting may not be the strongest part of his game but that's only because he can throw so damn far. Most people would still be amazed at how good his putting is. He can throw a putt freaking hard with that short arm method and it's difficult to see where the power is coming from. That method does help learn good timing with your weight shift and the palm push because it all happens in such a short window of time. I used it for a while but switched to a slower, smoother push putt because I had significant blow by problems with the short arm method.

it's not even how he putts IIRC, he was just explaining Blake's way
