Basic setup for the GP putter
Face-On-Putting is a VERY SIMPLE and NATURAL technique. It’s simple in that it requires far fewer moving parts than a tradition golfing movement. Also, when Face-on-Putting, the Club Face stays pointed down the target line throughout the entire putt. That’s FAR simpler than the “open door / closed door” technique that’s used in traditional putting. Furthermore, it’s VERY easy to swing the putter “straight back and straight through” with the GP putter.
The side saddle putting is 100% legal for any golf tournament in the world. Putting face-on with the GP putter is 100% legal in any golf tournament. The putting stroke (technique) that you see in the videos is again 100% legal.
The fastest and easiest way to reduce your golf score is to improve your putting.
You can shave more strokes off each round through good putting than if you learned to drive the ball 300 yards down the middle of the fairway like the pro's do. Of course you will still want to continue to improve the other parts of your game in addition to your putting.
Let's face it: The pro's who know how to putt are the ones who win the TOP money. A pro will spend a large percentage of his practice time on the putting green and around the putting green -- NOT the driving range! (But for most golfers, it's the other way around.)
Make putting the best and most enjoyable part of your game. All you need is to practice a little bit and you will see the big improvement in your game.
How to avoid a three putts and get better a lagging your putts. We recommend to practice 90% of your time from inside 10 feet of the hole. The reasoning for this logical practice is that most of your three putt that you have is because you miss your second putt from inside 10 feet. So the better your are from that distance the easy to place the golf ball inside that circle of 10 feet from a long distance. If you are at 60 feet away from the hole you have a better chance to lag your putt in a big circle of 12 feet (you could be short or pass the hole by 6 feet because you are very good from inside 10 feet so you just reduce the anxiety of that putt. The face on putting technique with the GP putter is like tossing the ball with your hand to the hole. Just think if I give you the ball in your hand and ask you to toss it to the hole how easier it would be. The GP putter face on putting technique emulate the tossing motion with your hand.
Explanation of the putting rules for the face on putting stroke. The USGA had banned croquet-style putting “between the legs” and also standing on extension of Line of the putt. But if you stand next to the line of your putt it’s 100% legal that way. The face on putting style that you see with the GP putter is again 100% legal for any golf tournament in the world.
