Default Best Spin Putters in DG?

Do to physical limitations, I can't straddle putt at all. Which pros, male or female, are the best spin putters? I would like to look for their names when watching taped tournaments.

Jason Carr's putting style most closely resembles the one I am trying to develop, unfortunately (for both of us) he doesn't seem to get much national coverage.

Thanks !!!

McCabe and Rico come to mind instantly when i think of world class spin putters.

Matt Orum, but his style is pretty unique.

Matt Dollar. Might not be world class so to speak, but he's 1000+ rated and a great putter. He's got his own channel with some commentary vids that are fun to watch.

cam todd has a sort of in-between toss-in/spin/snap putt. and Matt dollar has a more standard spin putt (level release/ton of spin/floats toward target).



Simon Lizotte




eric McCabe (solid spin putt).



Eagle McMahon (he does the thing where he looks like he's doing a push putt - up and down motion, but ends up using mostly horizontal linear movement snapping it with a ton of spin).



Michael Johansen has a really cool spin putt (often straddle stance but can do any stance/staggered straddle/ect, starts off with anny, totally centered/linear/horizontal, laser spin right at target).

Mcbeth is the best spin putter right now but it is hard to say who has the best form to look at as a reference.

Thanks All ! It is the stance I struggle with. Having little to no cartilage in my right hip means it is the exaggerated up and down putting motion that is problematic for me. Even Philo's in-line stance is uncomfortable.

I putt with my lead (right) foot aimed at the target and my back (support) foot at about 45 degrees. I don't generate a lot of leg energy, thus the spin putt.

I appreciate the help.
