PAGE 5: ARM LOCK

#5 - ARM LOCK 

This is the putting grip you will see used by Matt Kuchar, and it's a great method for those who previously used to anchor the putter before it was outlawed in 2016. 

WATCH: HOW TO MASTER THE ARM LOCK PUTTING METHOD


 

With the arm-lock putting grip, the handle of the putter locks against the inside of the left forearm (for right-handed golfers). This union should not separate at any point of the stroke (and this holding of the putter handle against the forearm does not constitute anchoring - it is legal under Rule 14-1b).

The major con with this stroke, however, is that it requires a putter with a minimum of 6 degrees of loft and adequate length for the handle to rest flat against the inside of the left forearm.
