MOI MAXX PUTTING
Stand the L2 behind your ball to determine club alignment with your chosen track line. This is the only time you would be aiming the club. Once you are done with this process, trust the head alignment from this point on.
Use the L2 head alignment marks to align feet, knees,hips and shoulders down the line. Now alignment is compete. trust your view from behind the club...no second guessing!
Solid mechanics using a shoulder/arm triangle to maintain a square face from backstroke to follow through.
A shoulder motion that is up and down instead of the normal forward and back, will keep the face square through impact.
The stable head design along with a 3 1/2" impact area, eliminates the need to stare at the ball during the stroke. By using your binocular vision to assess the distance while you putt, you will maximize touch and feel on longer putts.
A proper heads Up position helps to parallel your eyes to the ground for a better binocular view of the distance to the cup. Be sure to assess the total distance. Looking only at the cup or a point on the green can cause you to take the putter off the track line effecting direction.
ARM ANCHOR MODIFICATION
Proper head alignment works best from behind the ball. Once the head is aligned, keep your eyes of it as you walk up next to it in order to be sure it does not move. Using the head to properly align yourself will guarantee that the aim line will actually be your stroke line.
THE 3 COUNT TEMPO
Starting the stroke with a slight forward press, ( a slight push toward the hole with your anchor hand) is the first beat of a three count tempo. The second is the backstroke and the third the follow through. As a reference, a 6' golfer using a 48" putter would have a gravity stroke tempo of 58 beats. slightly faster for a shorter golfer and slower for a taller one when using a L2 with the adjusted length.
The advantage of touch and feel is applied best when connecting your vision to your motion. Remember, touch and feel is used only for distance control using a gravity swing and a tempo stroke.
For short putts when direction is primary, keep your eyes on the putter face from backstroke to follow-through to guarantee a square face at impact and improve shoulder rock.
L2 LATERAL LINE PUTTING
THE RIGHT ARM AND HAND
THE JOB OF THE STROKING HAND IS TO HOLD THE LIE ANGLE OF THE SHAFT IN PLACE BY SUPPORTING THE INSIDE OF THE CLUB WITH THE THUMB. THE FINGERS OF THE STROKING HAND DO NOT GRIP, BUT INSTEAD LIGHTLY TOUCH THE OUTSIDE OF THE GRIP FOR STABILITY. THE STROKING HAND DOES NOT LIFT AND MUST NOT INFLUENCE THE STROKE DIRECTION OF THE CLUB OR CLUB FACE AS THE HEAD TRAVELS UP AND DOWN THE AIM LINE.
CONFORMING TO THE ANCHOR RULE
A slight forward press toward the target prior to the stroke will conform to the "no anchor" rules in place.
Using binocular vision for distance control
along with the pure simple, gravity fed mechanics of the pendulum,
will make putting the best part of your game!
