I'm having some putting issues and was wondering if anyone out there might have any suggestions. I'm also looking at picking up a PING Nome. I'm taking the putter back too far inside and the club face is shut. As a result I'm missing putts left. Which form of toe hang let's the putter face rotate open easier on the backswing?

That's a great link. I understand that arced strokes need toe hang and SBST stokes call for face balance. I'm wondering which type will help me rotate the face open (actually square to the path) on the backswing?

Can you describe your set up?   Can you describe your stroke and how you initiate it?

I follow the Mike Shannon school of thought - and 1) I set up with precise and optimal ball position; 2) pulling the upper arms into my sides as an "anchor"; and3)  initiating the stroke with the shoulders....rotating around a fixed spine.   It is easy to putt with anything.

Is your method similar?  or different?

I am not technical, and play with what works for me.  My misses with the putter have always been left.  I tried all types of putters and for some reason the Nome "strong arc" has taken the "left" misses out of my game.  I don't know why, but it works for me.

none will "help" you open and close the face. it's the information they provide to you through sensory response that gives you feedback to open or close the face. that's why putters with toe flow are best for people who use an arced stroke--it lets them feel where the face is. see some of the discussion here: http://www.golfwrx.c...s-and-toe-hang/
