Anyone know about this? I sort of tried it. I hurts the arm a bit.

i've messed around with it some, and it's probably the only trick putt i can't do well yet. i'm sure with a few times practicing it and i'll get it down :P

i can say it's easier to do with a understable putter.

Very weird. It'd be cool to pull this off as a trick shot, but even if I become proficient at it, I can't see myself using it for all putts 30 feet or less.

Is that a skillshot he's putting on?

Certainly an unorthodox approach to putting :!:
Practice, practice, practice. Especially with players that are better than you. It's one of the only ways to learn new things.

Don't know if that's what they call it or not? What's a turbo putt? Maybe it is the same thing.
The advertisement says that it's so make-able that putting becomes boring :roll: I don't think I'm going to fork out the $ for the training video to find out.

Just checked the site again and I don't see any reference to a "turbo" putt. But now you have me all curious :wink:

Maybe this could be called a 2 handed turbo putt.

Turbo putt is a 1 handed shot. Your hand is up as if you were carrying a serving tray. The fingers are behind the disc and the thumb is supporting the disc on the flightplate (if you have small hands) or on the rim on the other side of the disc (if you can "palm" a disc)

The actual method of making the disc move is very similar to this 2 handed approach. The arm goes forward and the hands put some spin on the disc.

turbo putt = thumb in the center of the disc by the "nipple" and fingertips on the edge of the outside of the disc. you push the disc foreward while rotating your arm to screate some spin other wise the disc will flip end over end. ope that was a good enough explanation for you.

The bi moto website now has a new video online showing how to make longer putts with the technique too. (I like the short range technique, and now there's this!)

I was looking at another forum discussing this, and found that the dude in the bi-moto video, shot 950 and 962 rated rounds in '09 Montana State Championships.

He may be a better coach or teacher than a player. I don't think Blake goes around shooting 1020 rounds every day or anything.

That being said, if this technique was so effective, you would probably be seeing at least a couple top pros using it.

You do see top pros using the stuff the Blake advocates.
