Ross: I have a question on Bryson’s putting set up with the straight, stiff arms and how it works. I have seen some other tour pros using a similar set up and wonder how it works. Thanks AS

In a way it is similar to how I teach, in that the arms hang under the shoulders so you can just “rock” your shoulders and (if done correctly without anything changing) the path will straight back and return the same path through. Now, it is critical that the body lines are perfectly parallel to each other and the face of the putter is exactly 90° to the path. Ball position is important (more forward). Also, he leads the top of the shaft ahead of the putter head which is also very important to achieve the correct roll after impact with the ball. You want to make contact with the ball after the bottom of the swing arc, so you’re making contact on the upswing. Nothing but the shoulders can move during the stroke.
