Bryson DeChambeau's insane SIK putter was part of his unique bag when he claimed the 2020 US Open... so I decided to try it myself in a tournament!

      As long as it’s available to everyone, it should be legal. The same with every other anchored putter. It’s kinda like drivers. Some prefer a higher lofted face while others want a low launch. I never understood the anchoring ban since it was available to all players.

    The only thing that should be banned, (in my thinking) is Rick Shiels wearing shorts, that is egregious. The putter armlock I think would massively help the mature golfer and should be considered legal, IMHO.

  • Andy Oakes

    The definition of anchoring in this case is a fixed point around which the putter rotates in the arm lock method the putting stroke is not fixed to a central point the stroke is is based around the rocking of the shoulders so unless you use a wrist based stroke it’s the same as “normal” length putter. If the argument is that it’s easier with an armlock then maybe there should be only one grip, no claw grip, no left below right etc ? Banning it is nonsense and just being hyped up by a few people who should have better things to worry about.

  • touristguy87

    ...of course it's not Brysons' putter, it's just Peter Finch buying the same manufacture and make of putter that Bryson begins with when he personalizes his own putter, but being Peter Finch he has to send you a load of bollocks.

    I use the Kotahi ( undersized) grip with the elbows not bent and arms hanging when putting but grip not locked to arm. It is working for me. No, I don’t think it should be banned because it is moving with arms and not anchored.

  • Michael Breen

    Armlock is anchoring without any doubt. It gives you three points of contact. Three points of contact makes for more stability. That is why the construction trades call for always having three points of contact for proper ladder safety. When you put with the hands only you have two points of contact.

  • Christopher Siegert
    Christopher Siegert

    Absolutely should be banned, it's clearly anchoring and it's only a matter of time. The idea behind it sounds illegal - it eliminates the hands. That's a part of putting!

    This leapfrogging drill is my new favourite. However, I have modified it in that I aim for a forward ball (and not a tee (which is inefficient to be honest) - thus having a smaller target, as well as the fact that if the forward ball is hit it will nevertheless advance forward (and sometimes at an angle - thus changing the putting line a bit for variety). In practical terms this is one of the best drills ever. However, you can take it a step further.... You could set up 4 balls in a square pattern and hit them in a clockwise/anti-c pattern

  • Boyd Grandy
    Boyd Grandy

    Why not really anchor the grip to the left arm by gripping up the putter with your right hand to clamp it against the forearm? What I mean is grip the high left forearm with your left and over the putter grip (you might not be able to use an oversized grip for that if you have normal hands). Then the putter stroke is pure shoulder rocking with no hands and your putter literally becomes an extension of your left arm. If your are going to anchor, then anchor.

    I just got a hold of my first armlock putter, the Odyssey 2-Ball Ten Armlock. I absolutely love it. I feel like I have so much more control of every aspect of my putting stroke now, compared to my Odyssey Sabertooth I had before, or just about any other putter I tested while looking. I haven't gotten it out enough to see exactly what difference it'll make, but I would bet it'll save 2-3 per round once I get it dialed in.

    Pete I've used my putter up my forearm for years now so to me it's not new so I don't think it should be banned because I'm left handed playing right handed golf and just let's me be more fluid with my stokes so it's not a bryson thing as I said I've been doing it long before bryson with my 35 inch oddacy putter

    If price is a concern I'd go with the cobra. Same DLT face a good head design, and under 400 dollars. Odyssey also has their two ball 10 available as an arm lock which hits really nice. Or grab a used sik or bettinardi. Lot of people have experimented with the arm lock and moved on, I got my betti studio stock for 200 bucks.

    I've recently bought an armlock putter, a 41" Odessey 2-ball white hot to be precise. However, I don't use it in the armlock style. As I'm 6'3 with quite a major back problem, I actually use this with a standard putting stroke but much more upright. Before this putter, putting was definitely the weakest part of my game as I had a touch like a rampaging bull elephant. Now, putting is one of the strongest parts of my game with the biggest improvement being distance control. As far as them being banned, I'm with you in the sense that golf is hard enough so no, I don't think they should be

    I don't see a problem with it Peter, unless the PGA is going to ban arm locking as well. I say that because I was shown a putting technique by a scratch player at our club with a normal putter. He has his hands in a downward praying position on either side of the handle instead of holding the conventional way. This creates arm lock on the forearm or wrist anyway. He was shown this trick by an American on tour. You would have to ban this hold as well. lol

  • CrazyBaldGoof

    i don't feel like they should be banned if it helps be more consistent then why not? everyone can have the same chance to use it so if they feel someone has advantage bc of it then they should get one of their own.

  • David Oakes
    David Oakes

    At the start of the season i switched to an old Bridgestone Bullseye style putter (but steel not brass), i picked it up a few years ago for about £5, i can't even remember where i got it. Never drained so many putts, had one 3 putt in my last round and holed at least half a dozen longish putts, saved a lot of pars and got a couple of birdies. its amazing as it has given me confidence in the rest of my game, especially my approach play and chipping, I seem to have developed a casual "Oh well, if i duff this chip/wedge i'll just drain the 50 footer", which takes the pressure off and results in better shots, its like the opposite of a vicious circle (a gentle square?) Its staying in my bag.

    I would love to try an arm lock putter, but like you said the cost associated with them is a bit much. I do not think they should be banned. I personally think the 'governing' bodies need to take a close look at the equipment rules of golf for professionals, competing amateurs and the average joe golfer and figure out what is best for each category. What they decide for professionals doesn't need to apply to me.

    Hey Pete, can you explain 10:06 - 10:14 about straight back and through stroke not being allowed?

    • Mark Pogson
      Mark Pogson

      Think he explained that poorly. It's the angle of the shaft to the head. It can't be a perfect 90 degrees. But if you want to put your 70 degree lie angle putter perpendicular to the ground, you can. It just means the heel of your putter will be higher off the ground than the toe. So... your stroke can be straight back and through, but the putter can't be built to match the 90° angle.

    Jay Walk444

    Policing the arm lock would be impossible, so it can not and will not be banned. Normal anchoring is easy because a normal putting stroke does not in anyway involve a similar stroke. But with arm lock, do you limit the amount of handle above the hands? Say the limit was 15cm for example, in which case what if you grip down slightly on one putt? Will someone be able to proove after your round whether you had 15cm above you hands or 16cm. Do you limit putter length? Should that then be proportional to height? Will we then have to have putters and height checked before every comp round? Basically it is utterly impossible tobpolice fairly and will lead to all sorts of twats arguing about who did or didnt lock the putter. A total minefield and opens the door for all the miserable pedants at every club to moan. Just let it go and if you think it gives people an unfair advantage then try it yourself. It didnt help me at all when i tried it for couple of years. No better or worse to be honest.

  • Tom Sweeney
    Tom Sweeney

    Great video! Statistically, anchoring the putter does not provide an advantage and I don't think they should've been banned. Armlock looks soooo uncomfortable, but I've never tried one so I can't say that I wouldn't switch. At the very least I'd give it a shot. Not sure I'd want to pay $1,000 though....

  • Dustin Fullerton
    Dustin Fullerton

    Banned?... not sure. I have been playing around with armlock gripping with my standard L/L/L putter and have enjoyed it; I have a PXG Bat Attack on the way in an armlock configuration Loft 6*, Length 39-1/2, Lie 1up. For the reason that you can grip a standard putter as an armlock, I would say they shouldn't be banned. Otherwise, their would need to be a rule specifically about how you grip a putter... maybe?

  • Wayne Park
    Wayne Park

    I'm not sure if it should. It appears that the more you use it your confidence increased, so now that your confidence is up your thoughts are more positive to "I can make them all". I would use one, but not at over a $1000.00 Canadian!

  • Andrew Biggs

    No, i think the reason why belly, chest and chin anchored puttering was banned is because it allows a pure pendulum stroke utilising the full length of the putter. With armlock, the arm becomes part of the pendulum which introduces more of the human element in the stroke. Having said that, I use armlock as i feel that it is more consistent.
