Gee, I putt like that and thought you were talking about me, lol. I consider myself a very good putter, making putts from 15-20 feet often, no sweat from 8-10 feet. I also forward press and that finger helps me feel/maintain cognizance of the press. I might as well add that I use a jumbo TigerShark putter grip and grip it down by the bottom 'cone' which fits perfectly into the space between my hands which form a 'cone' and my fingers are essentially touching that black bottom lip. The long length of shaft/grip that extends above my grip acts as a nice balance and I use the 'hinge and hold' (don't break my wrists) and my hands move forward through the ball trying not to break those wrists forward, although they probably end up from a forward press to a straight down position. Saw a few episodes of "Shell's Wonderful World of Golf" today and couldn't believe all the old timers (Palmer and about 4 others I saw) using this stationary positioning of the hand and simply hinging the wrists backwards and forwards. I would never do that.

So I was watching The Haney Project 3-4 years ago, and it'll always stick out to me that he said "I've never seen a good putter use the grip where your low hand pointer finger points down toward the club head". So that day I switched away from that and never went back. Does anyone here putt like that? I see tons of guys at my local course who do.
