All muscular movement is centered around your core. Every motion you do has some tie into your core, it originates in your core. I don't actually feel like my core is rotating when I put. It's more like a flexing of those muscles results in a slight movement of my shoulders and my arms just swing freely. Maybe I'm making too much of it but that is how it feels at the moment. We'll see in a few months if I still feel the same. I do agree that you want to remain very still over the ball. I feel like I do that. The results on the living room carpet are good. I'll know in a few months if it transfers to the course.

It seems to me that if we use the core for all swings, putting included, it would make our games more consistent. Maybe Chuck can answer this for us with his opinion.



I'm very skeptical of this putt with the core idea.  I don't see anyone on tour moving their core when they stroke putts.  They all strive to stay very still over the ball.

 

I do stay still over the ball putting this way.  Maybe it is more of a feeling than "actually doing it".  But, feeling my belly button go back and through around my spine and letting that feeling move the putter works well for me.

It it works, you gotta go with it, gw.  I do think it might help in releasing the putter.

I think that for me feeling that this how I am putting helps keep my wrists quiet and acellerating through the ball.  I doubt that I am actually "putting with my stomach" but, that is what it feels like to me.  The putter head actually feels like it moves back and forth in sync with my belly button.

Agreed.

Oneplaner,
Just promise not to say "I told you so" if I stumble back in 3 months grumbling about my putting.

Hell, I might be trying by then.

I think you are correct. With a little more practice I realized that trying to use the core for putting does cause too much body movement and causes some inconsistency. Focusing on just moving the shoulders keeping that triangle, and allowing the clubhead to flow, works much better. Using the core seems to be more ideal for chipping up all the way to the full swing.

What's my target?

I put just like gwlee mentions by moving my belly button back and through. I imagine that it would be difficult for anyone to tell that I do this though on any putt less than 20 feet.

I spent my lunch hour today at the practice area.  I hit nothing but wedge shots of 60 yds and in.  Really worked on locking the arms to the chest and turning the old, fat tummy to hit the shots.  A nice little, compact tight rotation.  Very efficient.  This just reinforces the movement for the full swing.
