    Hi Tekoma, I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on my putting technique. I am a mis the ding type putter most of the time; unless it's a straight in shot. While you move the arrow, I don't and just miss it left or right to compensate for the break. Let me know how I can improve my putting if you can.

    Hi Joseph,

    Saw your replay...good try..unlucky there !..

    I recommend you using the arrow for aiming and work on your weight of stroke (speed).

    *** for some of short putts you can compensate for the break for missing left or right.

    it has been a very long time Tekoma since I last messaged you . I use the

    Odyssey Versa #1 Black Putter (L70+) I like the increments and meter speed . The other 2 versas are available to me and have rented both a couple of times . Didn't like them more especially the L 86 .

    Odyssey Versa #7 Putter (L86+)

    Odyssey Versa #1 Black Putter (L96+)

    I am better than before but I really hope to learn how to putt in 2015 . I have a very good grasp on distance . Consistantly leaving the the ball within a foot right or left of the hole or a foot  beyond . Not often short but it happens .

     I am and have been very tired of being close . I have brief awesome moments . For the most part I still cannot dial in my aim . I try and incorporate sevaral of your techniques . 

     It seems though that the part of putting where one imagines how much the speed and travel of the dots will effect the ball as it moves toward the hole . This concept is the most difficult for me . Therefore the need to utilize some of your aiming techniques .

     It may be that the reason for my lack of spiritual connection between the dots and the ball is that for only a year now have I had to pay attention to the dots as I now am a move the flag aimer . Previously through years of T W and my first couple here . I was strickley a forgiveness putter . Clicking way before or way after the ding . Actually had a lot of sucess with that method . As many people do . From what I understand there are even a good number of T L's sucessfully using that method . Or a variance incorporating a little of both . Which of course I do as well .

     Anyway for me I realized that for more consistant accuracy I needed to learn to move the flag . I watched and read every tutorial I could find . For the most part leaning toward yours as the most resourceful for what I was looking for . I am now able to inerpret some of what you are teaching . 

    Like the disconnect I have with the dots and balls . I am not grasping something that dials me into the actual hole . If I could change my username it would be " KING LIPPER " .lol . Or miising right or left by a half a damn inch . Time after time .

     Like I said I am going to learn how to putt in 2015 if it kills me . It just might ( cause of death appears to be a " T G 12 coronary arrest " . lol .

     So I am missing something . Someone told me that using your methods with my putter would need an adjustment of anywhere from a half a pixel to 2. 5 pixels . I said OK thanx . I then had another "Tekoma Pause " WTF did he just say ? Still having those . Not nearly as often though .

     Got any suggestions ? Have a couple putts on my wall . Not very good examples B.O. Putting . Just plain luck . Any little tips that I'm just not thinking of would probably be of immense help . Would be greately appreciated .

    We can do that until you get an idea of what my techniques are and how to use them...and if you still don't get it..I kill you myself.. LO L

    Putting has been driving me crazy here, until I found this. Very well put together and easy to understand. My average may suffer until I get this down pat but that's acceptable for the pay offs bound to come. Thanks!
