interesting stuff!  I think I am right eye dominate.  I need to hit the practice green and try some of this!

I'm left eye dominate / lefty putter...what would my setup be?

Great tip. Please post more putting tips, especially distance control.

I actually tried this during my last round.  I am right eye dominated so I followed the instruction in relation to that.  At first it felt a little uncomfortable (as expected).  However, I was able to get a better feel with the stroke and have a more comfortable release.  Not sure if this makes sense, but I am going to stick with it for now.  Thanks.

I am right eye dominate and right handed  is it more important to have the putter in your right palm or left which make the right or left more dominate
