    Woodoworkery:

    I 'm going to say this once and once only "BRANDON KEEP ME OUT OF YOUR EGO TRIP"

    I was complementing Tek on his video and putting system. You are good we all know it and so do YOU, but to compare you to the guys I mentioned , and also to the many I did not, well that's just not going to happen . Those guys are great and the funny thing about it is they never never had to tell anyone how great they are.

     

    SIR YES SIR

    Nice vid Tek.  I have tried it, but can't seem to figure when to use which method.  I had one putt  where I centered the ball, and then went back and centered the hole.  The marker was very close, but did move enough to change the putt.  I used the closest to what I thought was right, and it worked.  I'm looking forward to volume 2, and any more explanations you can give.  Thank you for the hard work.

    Thank you TT,

    As I stated before "at least 1 less stroke" is the mission here. I had to prepare a better video with detailed explanations before I published vol.1 but I am working on it now together with Lizard69 (Andrew)...I will try to explain the methods as detailed as I can before publishing vol.2...so until then...happy hitting

    Having watched the video a few more times, again congrats for taking the time to share with others some fine techniques to add to a player's arsenal. I did notice none of your putts did you (at least in the video) examine the straight or reverse putting view. (ie with the putter and using the putting line as a reference.

    Personally, I use the putt view (mostly reverse) as a starting point- then chip view as confirmation or to adjust as sometimes they conflict. Even using the Versa, I often off ding in the direction of the break - unless it is fairly straight or with minimal break and if uphill or fairly flat. The amount of off-ding- IMO is a developed instinct or 'feel'. 

    In essence I would say you have done an excellent job of categorizing techniques many better players have developed instinctually and in so doing making the potential for success-esp. on high difficulty putts- even more 'repeatable'. Thanks again for your fine work and effort.

    That exactly how Rossa works ( Rossa users would confirm that) and the "feel" comes along with knowing one's putter in and out by trying and failing thousands of times. I only used beginners putter and Rossa, so I have no clue how the other putters would react to my methods. I wish I could test them all...So thanks again for your kind words...

    by hoping to find at least one definitive method

    Great putt too!!  Sharing mine from last December where I targeted what appears to be a black drum on the far left of the fairway (See Replay>>Pause at the first 50 feet of the putt).  On the Best of Putting challenge...I did my own trial and error using different markers I could use and giving that point a variation of speed adjustments...in this particular putt, I putted it at about 170 ft power.  You may watch the other putts I posted on my wall or simply send me a private message and I'd be glad to share my excel file through your email so you can have fun testing it but it comes with a chart where I indicate my field markers for all nine holes...happy putting.

    Howdy...just sharing a similar putt which may give a new perspective on the putt.  Shoot me a private message and I'd be glad to share a file created out of countless trial and error using specific markers on the field.  In this putt I used what  appears to be a black cylindrical object by the far left ( Replay: Pause on the 1s550 ft of travel to see the point of target), hit it at about 170 ft of power to knock it in on Tournament greens.

    Cheers and happy putting,

    Just me,
