1. A method of golf putting using a short shafted putter in which the player using the putter while kneeling grips an end of the putter with one hand proximate an end of a shaft remote from a putter head and with the other hand grips the shaft proximate to the putter head so the hands are widely spaced apart, places his eyes vertically over a ball to be struck by the putter and aligns a putter head striking face perpendicular to a selected path of travel for the ball and, while holding the hand at the remote end of the shaft relatively still to provide a fulcrum, the player uses the other hand gripping the shaft proximate the head to move the putter head back from the ball along an arc perpendicular to the striking face, and then, in a pendulum-like movement, reverses direction and moves the club putter head along the same arc through the ball.
