Hmmmmm....I wonder why he left?? I wonder!!
Anyway 'putting' WGT aside for one moment - do you know I have been missing something quite important all this time, the seminal work of G0LD didn't include it, but after watching a few Young43 videos (or whatever he's called), and cross-checking it with the archived JC Snead piece - which is excellent, but G0LD got there first so you REALLY shouldn't be calling it the JC Snead method - it belongs to G0LD and forevermore shall be correctly referred to as ''G0LDs method''), but Snead includes a description of the lateral offset as it applies to squares on the putting grid, particularly the first square, even more particularly the first half square!!! I have always treated it as linear, i.e. for a 15 inch reference grid I have always taken the half way point to be 7.5....NOT SO says Snead - it's 10 isn't it, then everything after that becomes linear, but for the first half grid the points double-up, and that makes great sense when you look at the perspective of a square.
When I do eventually re-stoke my interest in this game (which right now is on a 'par' with JC Snead - i.e. ZERO), I shall be re-adjusting my measurement techniques to account for this subtle difference, i.e. this slightly none linear spacing over the first square.
I expect this should take a couple of shots off my scores - the couple of shots I have been looking for all this time!!!!
(better still - you cross reference with one of Tekomas methods for something quite invincible!!! If only these 2 had seen that straight away instead of bickering!!).
I consider this to be in the category of 'seminal work' and it is posted up with the other 2 seminal works on my profile for your convenience.
