    if you twitch a practice round..I might help you with how to determine which method...WGT messed up grid and dots, too after I made those vids..but still with minor adjustments, you can sink some nice ones easily.

    Joshnosh:
    do you have a problem with me?

    Joshnosh:

    ok we are cool :) im just frustrated cause i know these work cause one of them i can use but the others i have no idea when to use them (the one where u go in chip mode n put the line on the hole ) that one works 

       Hey bro glad you cooled down . This man Tekoma is nothing short of a genius . He voluntarily and generously shared about a dozen techniques that he not only invented but has mastered like no one else . He has many more techniques that he wisely keeps to himself . 

      Has offered his expertise in this forum for a very long time . He can have a problem with anyone he wants . He has earned it and this is his thread . 

     Joshnosh:
    just spent an hour studying both videos, sure ive got it all down .
     
      Well bro you must be a genius too . I started studying his videos years ago . Lol I sure do not have it down . Maybe another hour .

      I wish there was another way . If you remember I started to attempt to record some twitch rounds . I was no easy task . Every time I thought I had it . Nope no good . Then accidentally I saw that some how I had recorded a whole round some how . I have no idea how I did it . Could not get it to do it again . It was a fkd up round too . I made all my putts ., So I erased it . I havn't been back .

         Looking for a little help here. For about 10 days now, i have been using the different putting techniques featured in Tekoma's videos. Now i have, for the most part, got things figured out. Some of my misses have just been bad reads. However, There have been some misses that have left me wondering about something though. I have seen quite a number of putts just slide past the hole on the high side. Now i have tried hitting just a bit early or late to keep my putts on line like i see in the videos. Which leaves me wondering if had i dinged it, would i have made the putt.  I use the Level 77 Nike. My question is this, is putter precision the cause of these frustratingly close misses. Does it perhaps hold the line too well. I realize there is probably no easy awnser to my question. Any help though would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    If you are setting your meter deep the slight lack of balance might be the cause.  It's a good putter though, and generally takes slight missing to hold well enough.  Search forums on balance, forgiveness and precision or go to the FAQs in the website for my CC via my page.  Not looked at the vid again to check in all honesty, but don't expect every putter to work like every other (that's all explained in those FAQs too btw or see forums for more views).

    While this might be true in some cases the overall answer is No.  Why?

    My guess would be you're using the wrong technique for the hole.  Some holes excel with the Vertex method, others grid, others dot's etc.  Just gonna take some trial and error to find out which technique, if any will work for your current putt.

    I.E. On BPB, the par 5 4th is a great time to use Vertex method if you're behind the hole (front pin location).  If you line up the right vertex and hit the Ding its almost a guarantee when your in the 10 - 30 foot range.  Same holds true for BPB front 9 2nd par 3 over the pond.  If you're to the right of the pin the correct vertex sinks the putt almost every time.

    I would never be so cruel as to offer any advice on putting, but I will offer that 'for me' the greater amounts of balance+precision are the cause of those cheerfully close 'makes' . Also to note, Jimbog has been helping me with my putting, it is improving at a snail-pace but the instincts and habits of 70,000+ putts are slow to evaporate.  ~ SP ~
