Why Kevin Kisner is testing an armlock putting method at RBC Heritage

Published

on

At this week’s RBC Heritage, Kevin Kisner was spotted testing out an armlock putting method on the greens, which would mark quite a significant change for one of the game’s best putters.

In our ‘Most interesting Photos from the RBC Heritage’, our Ryan Barath made the commentary:

“Kevin Kisner working with an armlock putter on the practice green at the RBC Heritage. Kisner is generally not one to switch, but it looks like based on the sideways grip, flat part aligned with the face, he’s taking a big cue from Bryson.”

Media on-site also spotted the switch at this week’s event, and according to Kisner himself, the change is due to him struggling to start the ball online lately, and he’s been impressed by the success of the new method inside 10-feet.

“I was trying out the arm lock. I figured I’ve been putting pretty poorly, one of the best parts of my game, not starting on line last week. I just wanted to see a different look, try it out, and I like it. I think it’s really good inside 10 feet. I’ve just got to get used to the speed. I’ll see how it goes tomorrow in the pro-am and see if I’ll try it on Thursday.”

Kisner ranks 31st for Strokes Gained: Putting for the 2020/21 season but isn’t satisfied with his current putting and broke down what is frustrating the 37-year-old most.

“My biggest problem is I’ve normally been one of the best inside eight feet, and this year I’m not making it so I can’t keep the momentum of the round going when I miss a green, and then if I stuff an iron shot and miss the putt it’s really putting a drag on the whole game.

If I can see this way starting on line and hitting more solid putts more consistently I think it can help overall, but it’s still just a trial as of now.”

Kisner is 24th for the season on putts from 5-10 feet which shows you the high standards he has on the greens, and if he gets the putter hot this week, then expect him to feature as he has three top-11 finishes at Harbor Town in his last five visits.

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
