Before I submitted to the analysis, I thought I was a better-than-average putter, able to feel the distance and make my fair share of knee-knocking five footers, depending on which grip I favoured on the day. But, using the analysis, I quickly learned that in the backswing, not only was I taking the putter head on an out-to-in-path, I was automatically compensating by opening the clubface in the throughswing.
That's better! Improvement in my swing path and ball-striking
And that's not all. I was consistently striking the ball 16.4 millimetres (from the centre of the putter) - that's at least half an inch! - towards the toe and 10 cm (5 ins) into the throughswing, the face was already 24 degrees closed!
Scary - and a recipe for disaster!
The analysis quickly identified the cure:
*Concentrate on a straighter take-away
*Focus on striking ball in the centre of the putter (you can feel the feedback in the shaft through the sweet spot when you do)
*Keep the face square at impact
*Hold your follow through to stop the face from closing
