What do you think of Bryson DeChambeau’s side-saddle putting stroke?

Published

on

Back in October, Bryson DeChambeau said he was “really considering” using a side-saddle putting method over the holiday break. He called it “an easier way to putt” and said it could be “another game-changer” like his single-length irons.

Yesterday at the Franklin Templeton Shootout at the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla., DeChambeau officially unveiled the new stroke in competition. And he got off the a hot start with his side-saddle stroke, draining the first putt he attempted.

That wasn’t the only long putt he drained, either.

DeChambeau told Adam Shupak he has been experimenting with side-saddle putting for more than three years, although he doesn’t like to call it “side-saddle” or the modern term, “face-on” putting. Over the last two weeks, he said he’s spent 7 hours per day practicing the new method.

The homemade putter DeChambeau is using at the Franklin Templeton is center-shafted, and the same length as his single-length irons, 37.5 inches. Its overall head weight is 525 grams, and it has an alignment aid that DeChambeau applied with a Sharpie.

DeChambeau finished Round 1 at Franklin Templeton 10-under par (8th place) with playing partner Lexi Thompson in the two-person team event, which used a modified scramble format on Thursday.

So far in the 2016-2017 season, DeChambeau ranks 166 out of 220 players in the PGA Tour’s Strokes Gained: Putting statistic. His next scheduled PGA Tour start is the Sony Open (Jan. 12-15).
