When putting out of a sidehill break, the ball does not start straight of the putter. Looks like as if the putter is bent into the slope allready.

I've just tried to reproduce it in GNCD. Failed, did not happen once over 18 holes.
Gonna try some online course next. -> failed to reproduce.
Gonna try to catch it if it happens again. Might have been caused by experimenting with DPI of the mouse as well.

No problem! There's no rush.  I just can't remember if I had seen something like this before.  Are you meaning that the head of the putter is bent? or the shaft?

What he means is that the ball should go STRAIGHT off the putter face THEN follow the slope. It doesn't. Sometimes is just starts going sideways right off the putter face. I've had it happen a couple of times but not often.

no, its what Reebdoog describes. The title was ment to make a little joke out of it  ;) .
The putter actually looks absolutely correct and straight. Just the ball behaves as if the clubhead is twisted at impact. But as Reebdoog writes, it not happens on a repetitive basis, just occaionaly. Might be depending on the one specific lie of the ball and direction its played to.


Thx for confiming Reebdoog, i was starting to missbelieve my eyes. :)

that is correct.  I've noticed that as well.
