    PGA tour avg from 6 feet last year was 70.59%, worst on tour was 53.06% and best was 84.75%. Tour avg from 8 feet was still just over 50% at 54.24% and the best on tour made 74.19% from 8 feet! Yes expectations are important but how about you guys provide some real stats. All these putting stats are available online and take 30 seconds to look up. Also, instead of worrying about 6 footers how about you help people chip it/lag it closer so you have less 6 footers, even the worst putter on tour last year made 81.9% from 4 feet.

    If you have trouble with 6 to 12 foot putts you also have to ask why you get putts of that length so much. It can go back to driving, approach play and lag putting. First ask why you get them.

      Why do you need such a large oversized putter grip in the first place? Arthritis? Yips? Old-age tremors? Insecurity?

    I carry two putters because you can’t use the same putter for short and long putts because the physics of putting with the same weight putter is contradictory.
    A heel-shafted 8802 style putter for long putts and a center-shafted putter for shorter putts. The weights are different too. I haven’t changed my putters for the last 10 years because they work perfectly.

    Duhhh… That teaches you nothing, and 50% from 6 feet is not too good.
    a) buy the right putter for you and instead of getting fitted for a specific Scotty Cameron or Tayloe or whatever try very different types. My putting was around the 32.5 per round and it dropped to 31 and less when I bought an Odyssey Tank, I think the large grip that came felt very good but it’s mostly the weight that gave me a much nicer swing. So get out there and try some stuff.
    b) speed control is the consequence of a smooth swing and catching the ball slightly on the way up. The ball rolls almost immediately and holds the line better, also you will need less backswing as the balls benefits from this little bit of top spin.
    c) you need that speed control to make any putt with a bit of break, so it’s not only about the alignment.
    d) have your pro check your angles regularly. It is very easy to let your routine drift from one week to the next and compensate a bad alignment with closed shoulders or open hips or a twisted grip

Why most golfers aren’t improving as fast as they should

Published

on

Improvement happens when our current skillset is challenged to adapt and expand to a new level. So, in order to improve, we need to learn to embrace the challenges that will lead us down the path of improvement.

Unfortunately, most of us have learned to fear challenges. It makes sense. Challenges often led to failure, which can lead to humiliation and embarrassment. They can make you feel lousy. If we can get past our egos that are trying to protect us from failure, however, we can come to see that challenges are the only route to improvement. From there, we have a chance to enact real change and long-lasting improvement.

When you’re practicing golf, you need to look beyond the results or the awkwardness of learning a new technique or skillset. Coordination in the golf swing is everything, and sometimes the changes that are needed are not all that big. They may feel like enormous changes, though, because there is a difference between feel and real.

Golf is a game of improvement. In this video I share my thoughts on how you can get started in your process of improvement. Please enjoy, and feel free to interact with your comments and thoughts.
