Ehh, I'll bite I guess.
I'd say watching Keegan, Simpson, Kuchar, and all the other guys who putt with the shaft running up their forearm is a little boring to watch. With Simpson almost making everything Friday and Saturday at the Players, I could see how more pro's might look into it.
But in all honesty, putting is either the most boring or exciting part of golf. You can't draw/fade a putt (or at least you wouldn't want to). Hard to putt a stroke into a hazard, or into the rough. Even Hogan said putts should only be worth half a stroke. I'd say the most frustrating part about golf as an amateur is hitting a beautiful shot on to the green, only to then two or three putt for par/bogey. It is an art for sure, but since the ball is always in contact with the ground, it almost seems like you are at the control of the green conditions. Bad greens = almost impossible scoring. I make on average 10-12 pars a round, but average only 1.2 birdies per round. I also play public courses where the greens are basically in a state of disrepair.
Just think of it this way. 350 yard tee shot into a 10 yard wide fairway, and then a beautiful wedge to around 8 feet, only to two putt for par because someone left a cleat mark on your putting line. Point is, I don't really care what they putt with.
Got 14 daggum golf clubs, but none of 'em hit the ball straight.
