I'm still trying to figure out why the cameraman kept following the Cam Todd's disc instead of just watching his form since that's pretty much all they were talking about. He kept missing the second putt each time.

Wow, an Arsene Wenger quote. Are you a long suffering gooner?

I'm not able to watch any of the videos from my Blackberry, so I'll have to watch them once I get home. But which one of these would be best to learn if you want to putt straight and hard at the chains?

In his video, Cam talks about focusing on the pole. Maybe try his suggestions?

Emphasis on the HARD!

def with dave here! as a beginner I put this into practice and it hasn't let me down...
Sidenote: did dave have a foot fault on his last putt?

I posted a thread about all this awhile ago (I don't feel like prerubing this). But anyway if you want to see a good straddle putter check out Markus Kallstrom. He has a funky knee bend that generates a crap ton of power for a putt. Also brod... you didn't include a solid spin putter. The snake strike putt is a kind of spin putt... but Dave D is a little crazy... so I have a video with both of the things you are missing.




Next lets address Nikko's putt. It is a straddle putt in stance but I don't think straddle putt should be considered a specific style as much as a stance that dictates how you generate your power for distance. Most straddle putters place there feet square with the basket. So much so that there is a special rule to dictate where their non-lie foot is placed (I don't know the exact rule). Nikko, while straddled, places his left foot far behind his right foot and squares up so that his starts on his right foot, shifts weight to his left foot, and then back to his right. He only shifts as much as need obviously but his shift (to me) ends up kind of emulating a wrestler's shoot. The weight shift only comes in for distance. He tires not to move his lower body for closer putts.

Also, not the best explanation, but I still think this video is rather important.

True that. I just want this thread to be a really comprehensive putting video thread, especially showing different styles and pointing out what those styles are so that people can compare and contrast easier.

And I think this image Vegan Ray posted forever ago clears up the straddle putt stance rule:

Here's a decent demo of the nefarious turbo putt style, unfortunately, it's from Expert Village so chances are good that the "expert" is probably not the best candidate for this demo:


This Todd Erickson is a lot better at the Blake_T style short arm putt:

I remember Feldberg saying that he used to spin putt but changed to Climo's style in order to have shorter comeback putts on misses. I was under the impression that Dave's style was very close to Kenny's. This is for shorter putts only, Dave uses a spin putt for his step through putts.

So BroD, what's the difference between "Push Putting" and "Pitch Putting"? Previous to this thread, I have heard the terms used interchangeably.

They do get thrown around interchangeably, and the differences are pretty nuanced. If I have it right, push putting relies more on finger spring to propel the disc while pitch putting relies more on swinging your arm up (kind of like in a straddle stance) and letting the end of the swing where your elbow goes straight propel or pitch the disc out. Both rely on weight transfer obviously.

I could be completely wrong about all this. :| The various putting styles are some murky waters to wade through semantically and that's why I made this thread, to help make sense of it all.
