Golf, the player's challenge

Postby phideltgator » Thu Apr 18, 2013 8:56 am

Let's try to compare the use of the belly putter or long putter to another sport.
Let's take a rifle shooting tournament. So you enter the offhand (standing) portion of the event and you prepare to hit the targets in your standing position you have practiced over and over. You look to your left and here is some jerk setting up to shoot but he has a tripod to rest his rifle on while he is standing. Who do you think is going to win the blue ribbon?

Not even close to the same thing, or even similar.

Nice try though.

If the gods of golf disallowed Sam Snead's way of putting in the late 60's they will certainly disallow the belly putter. How pretty is the stroke or the club? That question may be what drives the decision, not hard data.

I know this comparison is difficult for your little hampster brain to comprehend Wobble, plus you probably have never shot anything bigger then a bb gun and that would be pushen it.

Wrist action and grip produces breakdown of the path and face position at impact of a typical putt motion. Plus if it's the 20 footer for the win of the Masters, nerves just might play a role in the message sent to the muscles required to be rock solid.
Arms can rotate and swing independent from shoulders which also produces inconsistent clubhead movement. More moving parts.
But you can always skip all of that effort and purchase a long or belly putter.
The anchored club becomes a fulcrum or pendulum and the hands, wrists and body are linked to the shaft. The shoulders move this unit again as a perfect pendulum action. There is no reason to even grip the bottom of the club.
Now if you are smart you can make it even morte deadly by allowing the shaft to be centered on the mallet for perfect ballance. Now even Wobble could make a putt.

So you're saying Tiger would have easily won the Masters with the belly putt?

Perhaps, especially if they didn't penalize him with that BS two stroke penalty they gave him.

Looking at pictures of both shots, he was closer to the original spot than Wobble's penis length.....what I mean by that is, he was within a couple inches of the first shot. :lol:

So you need good wrist action when you grip the rock solid clubhead and shaft?

Golf aint a real sport anyway. Rich man's game mainly to do business during said activity. It is a joke really and never a bigger joke when they whined about the sick guy needing a cart.

BTW, Brittney Griner acknowledged Wednesday that she is gay. Discuss.

Do you play golf, and have you done so on any good level? And then have you done so 4 days in a row....every week? Or played 36 holes in one day? People also say that car racing isn't a sport either, but it's quite interesting that golf and car racing both use more of a persons body for significantly longer periods of time, then anything deemed a "sport" otherwise.
