All I can say is wow!! I've been putting indoors on my putting mat every day since receiving the putter. I've watched all the videos and the book is almost complete as well. Just played my first round with the putter and I was blown away. I made a 15 footer and a 20 footer. I never made putts outside 10 feet with my old putter and if I did it was once in a blue moon. So to make two putts like that in nine holes was simply amazing. And my buddies were all shocked when the putts dropped. I've never been a terrible putter. According to my Grint app, I average 31.3 putts per 18 holes. Today, I played 9 holes with 14 putts, which would set me on path for 28 putts. Simply amazing. I'm sold on this putter and putting style and I know my putting will continue to get better and better as I get used to the touch and feel of it. Even my lag putting was right on par. Well done!

I was struggling with my traditional putter(s). After three rounds of 4,5 & 6 3 putts I was ready for a change. I had considered trying the Lean Lock putter a few months ago but I wanted try a Scotty Cameron Phase X putter. I loved the feel of the Scotty but I could not make short putts. I saw an email about the Lean Lock putter and decided to give it a try. I purchased the APA Blade Proto 1.0. I am so glad I did. The putter felt odd but I was making putts from 3 to 9 feet on my putting mat before I took it to the course. I've now used the Lean Lock for 5 rounds and I now have confidence that I'm either going to make my putts or have a gimmee left. Today I had 9 one putts and no three putts. Try it, you'll like it!
I live in NW Pennsylvania and it is well into December, so I will not be playing a round of golf for a few months. I have only had the Lean Lock Putter for about a week and have only used it on my practice putting mat, but I am very excited with the experience so far. I have always been a "handsy" putter with inconsistent results. Lean Lock has helped me to utilize a putting stroke with arms and shoulders and minimize the hands. I have noticed much more consistency with hitting my line. I can't wait to try it on a golf course, where it counts for something. Hopefully I will be able to lower my scores as putting has always cost me several strokes a round.
RC B. Received the putter last Thursday evening. Practiced for an hour with it before bed. Practiced with it Friday morning for about 30 min. Took it to the course Saturday morning and had 14 Putts with 3 birdies for a one under par total of 35 for the front 9. Two 30 foot birdie putts dropped along with a 15 foot birdie at the ninth. Did not strike the ball well off the tee on the back but still had just 16 putts on the back with zero 3 putts for the round. Game changer. Thank you!
I’m still getting adjusted to it’ but I can tell even on missed putts it’s just going to get better!!
I just ordered mine and will update my review once it has arrived. I wanted to share with people that it is a different set-up and feel, but what I did before I purchased was use the basic set-up with my old putter and that helped me decide to purchase this putter. I felt more right hand dominant and was beginning to see my putting as a plus rather than a liability! Now that I have ordered the Lean Lock putter, I know that it will only enhance what I have figured out and will let you all know how it actually goes!
To be honest I hated it at first and put it in the garage with my other putters. I switched to left handed and although I was able to cure the yips I had no real control. Fast forward a few months I read the book again and decided to give it another try and boy am I glad. I am now dedicated to using this putter and have confidence in every putt. Will be back to a 4 very soon and averaging 30 putts/round vs 38. I highly recommend but you have to keep a open mind and practice.
Haven’t had many reps yet but so far I’m very happy and believe this method and putter will dramatically improve my overall putting.
I had my wife order it for me and it came real quick. The putter i received was a righty putter. i am a left handed golfer. I reach out to Brian Tennyson and his group to discuss me dilema. They were great! i sent the right handed putter back and they stated the lefty heads would be in sometime mid to late May. I am waiting to get the lefty putter. They were very kind, professional, and quick to respond to my questions. Looking forward to getting it.
Got my tips/corrections from Brian and man did they work. 23 putts and the boys are crying at the club.$$$
I have played two nine hole rounds with it. It does take a while to get used to setup with this but in my mind it does two important things. It is impossible for the lead hand/wrist to breakdown. With your hands in front of the ball it is much harder to decelerate during the stroke. It can be done, as I did it, but much much less likely to do so. These are two very common putting problems that this putter takes care of for you. Unlike other putter or claw grips,etc., this putter allows you to hinge your dominant wrist for feel and distance control while keeping the lead wrist locked. That’s a winning combo. I think getting my stance and hand position more consistent will really improve my putting.
I bought the lean lock putter in December, I was in love with the concept..I had a really bad compound fracture in my left arm and wrist. So I had to make adjustments to his method but I was finally able to get it close. For the 1st time in 20 years I broke 30 putts on a rd I had 27 total. This putter really improved my stroke. Best buy I have ever made
Took a few weeks to get used to it but since I have developed the right stroke with it, best decision I ever made will never go back to a standard putter.
Brian, I was hesitant at first as I could not get comfortable with the stance. I was in Palm Springs over last weekend and I played one round with it and struggled a bit, but got used to it. The second day I played with it I had 6 one putts and 3 birdies for a round of 38-44-82. I am just getting back into golf after a long layoff due to some surgeries over last few years. I am still adjusting but my distance control and lines ar much better and more consistent now. Thanks for the book and I am looking forward to lower scores this coming year. Best regards, Ed Hull
The Leanlock putter is pretty amazing. I’ve tried almost everything when it comes to putting, right, left, chest, belly, various putter heads and grips. Nothing I ever tried could virtually guarantee starting the putt dead straight until I tried the Leanlock. I did need help from Brian Tennyson thru a video lesson which corrected my set up, mainly getting my left arm on the putter correctly and my eyes over the target line. After that it was like magic. I’ve only used this in my home being Chicago winter and all but I actually get tired, physically tired, from making putt after putt from 8’. With that comes the confidence to make the stroke you know is correct and will send the ball on your target line. I can’t thank Brian enough for this incredible putter and can’t wait to use it on the course. I would have paid a lot if there was someone or something that could virtually guarantee that my putts would be rolling on my target line every time. Leanlock is a bargain in my view and invaluable for my golf game.
I have tried so many different putting methods over the last 35 years. It does not take too long to experience the flaws in most new methods. Lean Lock has the most "fool proof" approach to better putting that I have experienced. Congrats to Brian for creating this method!
I have never been more excited about a putter and putting method in my golfing life. Lean Lock putting is the most technically sound way to eliminate nervous putting or the even more debilitating "Y" word. I used a long putter and a belly putter back when they were legal. I tried arm lock when it came into vogue. Lean Lock is far easier to learn and far more effective eliminating my faulty wrist motion and subsequent face control. If you think you have tried everything to improve your putting, you haven't until you try the Lean Lock method. If you are looking for a way to improve your putting, you need to give Lean Lock a try. I'm certainly glad I did. Thanks Brian! Sincerely, Scott Brazaski, PGA Teaching Professional.
I am so pleased to have discovered your LeanLock putter. The putter has made all the difference for me, truly! After decades of poor putting I feel consistent confidence for the first time in my life. However I must say that the lesson booklet (and virtual lesson) that accompanied the putter was very important. Without it the insight of the putter might still be hidden to me. I want to thank Brian for his hard work that came with his own belief that he had found a method of putting that is simply smart. It certainly has made a turn around in my putting in just the first few months I had owned it. I want to emphasize that I didn’t find success immediately. But I was confident in the method and as I learned to apply what Brian teaches, I found improvement each week. I now have a short game that rewards good iron shots. What a pleasure!! Thank you Brian Tennyson, Founder of Leanlock
I played golf competitively as a junior (7 handicap) before giving the game up to be with my growing family. I began playing again once retired (55). Unfortunately I developed an essential tremor in my left wrist which only impacts my touch game. My game was still solid tee to green (12 handicap), but I could not manage to start a putt on my intended line because of the tremor. The belly putter helped until it became illegal, so I decided to give Brian's Lean Lock putter a try. I'm still in the early stages of working with it, but I seem to be able to lock my left wrist in place. I am an excellent reader of greens and if I can manage to get the ball on my intended line, perhaps I can eliminate my many 3 putts and get back to scoring in the high 70's.
Still working on ball position. Right now I like it back in my stance. It feels comfortable and tapping it with my right hand is easier which puts a nice roll on it and keeps it online.
Went back and forth so much in my head before taking leap to purchase. Typically skeptical of ads that pop up on instagram. The quick handout guide on how to putt w/ Lean Lock was pretty straight forward. The book that it comes with is technical, but a very informative read. Definitely understand more the mechanics of putting. With all of that said, I LOVE THE LEAN LOCK PUTTER! The control I have with this thing is off the charts. Getting better round by round, but from the get go, this thing has been awesome. I highly recommend the Lean Lock Putter!
I haven't had it on grass - just an indoor mat so very little length variation and no slope. I find that it is better for me to set up with the club loosely in my top hand. Standing tall so that my dominant right eye can line the head to the target better. Then I 'lock' it in to my top arm, put my bottom hand on the grip - thumb on the flat portion. Fire away. The results seem good but the sample is not really representative.
SELECTING THE PROPER Length
Use these guidelines when ordering your LEAN LOCK putter. The proper length for each golfer is flexible. As long as the shaft extends at least one-half the way up your forearm and does not extend above the elbow joint it will perform effectively and will be in compliance with the USGA's rules on anchoring.

I switched to LEAN LOCK a week ago and just played golf with my son. Putted like a PRO! Birdie and 2 eagles! Made everything from 10 feet in. I'll never putt any other way again!Jacksonville, FL

The quality and workmanship of LEAN LOCK putters is really impressive. The detailed milling and black oxide finish are professional grade, and the classic shapes combined with the white aiming lines make them easy to aim.Head Golf Professional, Amelia Island, FL
