Im right handed and right eye-dominant. 80% of people are eye dominant to their handedness. I learned the other day that people who are right eye-dominant usually prefer putters that have little to no offset such as flow-necks and even center shafted putters. Even if you are right eye dominant and use a plumbers neck hosel, all you have to do is move the ball back in your stance a little and put it under your right eye more. Its interesting when it comes to alignment issues when putting. Ive been using this knowledge the past few days and my putting seems to be better. Just knowing the information seems to help. I guess this why I like my flow-necks so much. I didnt realize there was a reason other than preference. From what i understand eye dominance effects alignment in the full swing too. So be sure to line up behind the ball using your dominant eye.https://youtu.be/N-o7ASzzoK8
@RickM I'm right handed and left eye dominant...not sure it works so well for me LOL!!! Thing is I don't think I was always that way...but really can't remember. I had an issue with a contact lens for a long time and just never went to get new ones. It was the right lens so I compensated by focusing more with my left eye thereby training myself to switch up eye dominance. It just always remained and to this day still left eye dominant. I do think it helps me with putting but not sure there is anything that can help the rest of my game!
@PC98 If you look up some info on eye dominance and read about it a little bit , I think you would enjoy it. There are a ton of putting / eye dominant stuff out there. I imagine you would want to set up perfect (OCD) haha. Im telling you man , just knowing the information helps. Wether or not you use or believe it or not. When I hit a perfect shot it is always left of the pin it seems. Tomorrow im gonna line up with my right eye all day and see if my good shots are even better. Its a real interesting topic.
You have an advantage according to most of the golf scientists out there. Being left eye dominant allows you to make a bigger turn and have a more consistant path back to the ball. Check it out !!
