Yep i mentioned this a while ago.

Be interesting if he adopts this tomorrow when partnering up with my fav lady golfer Lexi Thompson in the Franklin Templeton
Something similar was used by Sam Snead years ago, but with a different split handed grip and a more crouched over posture. There are claimed to be some advantages to this style, including a binocular view of the hole which gives better depth perception and therefore distance control. I have come across a few Senior golfers who putt this way, usually as a cure for the yips.

Did they not ban Snead from putting like that

There are no pictures on a Scorecard - if it works for him (or he thinks it does) that's fine by me.

As long as a stroke is legal that's all that counts for me.

My putting is pretty dire on occasions due to astigmatism and varifocal lenses so I might give it a go next time I'm solo.
