I need a tip to DING every shot
But really now, you should venture out to SA or RSG in Heavy winds, and see how far dinging your appoach shots will get ya in side winds:)
I think you're talking about 'off-dinging', but I could be wrong.
In any case, and for many reasons, I occasionally consider off-dinging when approaching/driving.
I also occasionally consider off-dinging while putting *.
With a heavy cant or slope with fast moving lines, I may consider method A (off ding) shown on the left. I believe many pros at WGT often consider method B (right) because they have experience of how much to aim (fig G) and how much the break will affect the shot.
See the difference in aim (fig G), this may be similar to methods used in an approach shot in heavy wind.
But I often like method A (off ding), and you have to consider the power loss from the off-ding also. The ball seems to spin and slow down. Even if I miss the ball ends up nearby.
When I fail at my calculations using the dinging method (B) the ball may end up very far away from the hole. I need to practice more.
Another fault in method A (off ding) is that it seems that the ball is spinning more and the shot is more likely to spin in and out of the hole, or lip out, etc.
What different methods do you try and how does it work for you?
[The black circle is the hole. The Pink word 'AIM' is where the aim arrow is at. The smallest dotted line between them (fig. G) is just showing the difference in distance between A & B.]
I concur with this subsequent post's advice:
Loosen/relax your grip on the mouse and try to use more of your mouse finger "finger tip".
use more of the tip of my finger and not so much the fingerprint part of my finger, it really quickens my reaction timing.
I used to push it like a game buzzer, or like I was pushing in a tack, but now it's more of a slide off from the tip of the finger, like when wiping a small smudge off a surface, this can be done quicker and I can adjust to the way the meter is moving, or how it may seem to change during that particular shot.
I slide it off right to left, while paying attention to the screen.
