eagle McMahon is a spin putter imho, not "Spush".

I don't like the term "push" -- I use "hybrid" style when teaching it.
I kinda agree with you about Eagle’s putt being spin. But you and I disagree with Eagle.

When I started I tried to emulate one of the young guys that I play with. He kind of modeled his putt after Wysocki’s. My putt has evolved into something that probably resembles Tomas Ekstrom.

As soon as I stopped comparing and trying to putt like someone else, I got so much better. And I mean like a huge difference. I gained so much confidence after I started to putt how I putt naturally. I spent the first three years playing trying to emulate McBeth, but I was a terrible putter struggling to reach the basket from 33 feet. You really just need toputt how you putt naturally. Don't overcomplicate it with spin/push/spush/mcbeth/wysocki etc... Just putt with what comes naturally.

That's like regular hyzer, not MASSIVE trying (unintentionally) to spike hyzer into the basket, though

Obviously I need more work on longer putts.

Don't really watch enough videos...

Which player consistently hits the side of the basket 1 inch below the "eyes of Headrick"?
