Proponents of face-on putting (otherwise known as side-saddle putting or straight-forward putting) say that the swing motion is similar to throwing a ball under-handed, making it more natural than the traditional stroke. This technique also eliminates hand and wrist action to ensure a more consistent pendulum-like swing and promotes increased accuracy. As a result, the club is reliably on the putting line. Also, since you face the hole you use both eyes (also called “binocular vision”), which gives you a truer picture of the putting line.
