Here's S Stricker's  putting stroke.

Just shows that the backstroke doesnt have to be perfect.

What do you think about the
1) rotation of the face angle?
It appears he starts from an open face angle and then in the forward stroke is square face.
While still maintaining a pendulum stroke action in reference to the left breastbone.

2)setting up with the toe down?

noticed this with SS  back in the late 90's at a tour event...  looks very hard to repeat, but he has been doing it a long time.  We all would benefit from hitting 500 putts per day............

Stricker is a devotee of Jerry Korte, a long time PGA pro and putter designer from Wisconsin.  Korte is now deceased, but he and Stricker did a book a few years back called "The Proof is in the Putting" essentially teaching people how to put this way.  It's a very popular method among the top amateurs around this area.

So I know this is a long shot but I figure it is worth a try here of all places.  Anyone know if or where I might be able to find a Yes Plus Mallet or Blade made by Jerry Korte?  Here's the other kicker, in Left Handed.  I have one now but have always wanted to have a back up just in case.
