Thousand of golfer are looking for a better way to putt since the “anchor” ban has gone into effect. Many are considering FaceOn/Siddle Saddle putting as an option. Its a GREAT option, but NOT a quick fix. I started putting FaceOn in 1997, and have won over 100 amateur tournaments during this period, I was DONE with golf putting conventional, and it saved me from probably quitting the game. If you cannot putt, why dedicate your time and effort to something that always ends in frustration.
I will say that since 2012, I’ve struggled with the FaceOn putting only because there is a YIP at impact, yes even putting FaceOn I’ve had to make significant adjustments. Even this past weekend while competing in the 36 hole final of the Olympic Club Championship, I had to only two putt from 30 feet on the 18th hole to secure the championship. I putt FaceOn but with my eyes closed, and in this high pressure situation I was not able to roll the first putt the proper distance and watched it all end in a heartbreaking loss. I’m telling you about this because its all part of the game, and the situation changes from day to day.
But I will say that from 1997-2012 my putting was my greatest weapon and that I rarely ever had an average day pf putting. Many many players tried this strange looking method after watching me putt, but failed because they were all looking for a quick fix. THIS IS NOT A QUICK FIX!! You need to dedicate many months to develop the feel in the long putts and find the right FaceOn putter. Now there is a VERY good choice with the new Bobby Schaeffer putter, that will probably see the first PGA tour win secured by Bryson DeChambeau using this putter. So now we have better FaceOn instruction and a few decent options to consider with the many FaceOn putters available. In the future I plan to write about all of the FaceOn putters I have run across that are available, so STAY TUNED.
