The good thing about getting old, is that you can hit the ball out of sight.

Sorry.   Sad

Upside Down = More than half the strokes are putts.

(not an official term or even one I've heard before - just came close to doing it today)

"Inside the leather"

Common usage = putts conceded when closer to the hole than the length of the putter grip (which, in olden tymes, was made of leather).

Less common usage = TFT on a weekend night.

I normally don't, but....what the hell.

Counselor, while the second is dead on, I disagree with the explanation on the first.

After a putt nears the hole, but does not drop;  A putter would be laid down, the shaft, in the direction of the ball.  The blade of the putter was dropped in the hole, and the club pulled taught.  As long as the ball was closer to the hole than the start point of the grip, it would be deemed to be inside the leather.  Typically around 2 feet.

I concur. At least stroh's description is how I've always heard "inside the leather" applied. While the original usage may be different, in practice this is what I've observed.


Oh yeah. And I'd wager the less common usage is more common than we'd like to imagine.  Tongue
