Nice Swingman! I continue to tweak my approach to how to best use the DF. I started with super light grip pressure thru the entire stroke but felt things were getting a bit “sloppy”. From that I went to a firmer grip pressure and a relaxed shoulder girdle movement where I tried to just have the shoulders move in concert with the putter head but I think This led to some “quitting” on putts post impact. Currently I’ve dialed the grip pressure back a little and am using the shoulders to power the thru stroke. This seems to eliminate the quitting issue yet still allows the DF to move “where it wants to”. The roll was always good but it seems even better now!

I’m really encouraged with the DF’s performance during the few tournament rounds I’ve had a chance to use it in. If anything I’m hitting some putts too long which I’m not used to (in part I think it has to do with a purer roll the DF putts on the ball). Much of my observations to date have been subjective as I’ve not been diligent with my stat recording but I’ve resolved that so my perspective should be more objective going forward.

Playing in a 2 day event next week and the course apparently has yardage books with Aimpoint mapped greens. I’m hoping this eliminates another variable, that being my mediocre green reading abilities. :)

I recently picked up a Directed Force Putter that doesn't have the Press grip. I have never been a fan of wide bodied grips but if the factory grip is essential part of making the the technology work I could learn to love it. what do you think of the Press grip?

You don't need the Presse grip for the putter tech to work -- what you want to make certain is that the lie angle fits exactly - not toe up or down but neutral.
