    Damon Lucas is your guy in this regard.

    Tom Bartlett has fooled around with it, and can add a bit from his perspective.

    And Jim of course.
    All you have is your hand path, the force along that path, and torque about that path.


    That's your means for creating the proper D-Plane with the proper speed, for the desired shot.

    Hi sbark,

    "Try putting the shoulder frame back in the backstroke and then freezing there and then looking at the spot on the ground behind the ball. This is where the putter head sweetspot will drop to, square, when you simply "allow" the shoulder frame to relax and drop back to level.

    Also, if you freeze at the top of the backstroke and ask what would happen to your hands if you simply "allow" the shoulder frame to re-level itself, the answer is that the hands would drop-swing STRAIGHT DOWN and across the tops of the feet. The idea is that the golfer should NOT do anything with the hands except let them drop straight down when the shoulder frame relaxes."

    This is quoted straight from Geoff- I couldn't have said it better!

    Try it first with a core putt...no target to start with. Just get comfortable with a stroke length that is far enough back(in the backstroke) that if you went further, you would feel the putter rising. Then allow the putter to swing through. If you putt a few balls, they should all go about the same length. If short, you're probably tightening. If long, you're probably adding...
    Report back!
    Why have a brain if you are going to take it out and let others play with it?
