    That’s a nice shot to have, and pretty easy to hit. I practice it frequently. I also play a ball that spins, which helps the ball stay put when it lands.

    I don’t believe this is the best advice due to the fact that many of your viewers are amateurs and above single digit handicappers, meaning they most likely don’t have the skill to hit that shot. Just my two cents

    Good advice. Now I just have to learn how to hit a miss on the proper side of the green.

    I do have a nagging question. I noticed you took a gentle full swing follow-through but it was very controlled i.e. well under a normal swing speed, slo-mo. How do you do that? I tend to over cook the gentle flop and put my playing partners in danger zone.

    What swing thought can I think (lead arms (led), dead arms) that will not finish/stop at the ball which either causes the dreaded karate chop (my 12 yr old son named it) or the famous turf burger?

      Allow your pivot to “pull” the club through the impact zone. Rotation allows the tempo to be more smooth.

Best putting machine ever: You

Published

on

So many professionals on different tours struggle with their putting — and then they wonder why amateurs are struggling. It is high time (because of my success as a putting coach is less known but no less successful) that they let another coach take a crack at it with very real science and anatomy to back it all up.

I’m talking about every aspect of putting (from stance, to distance to ball, to posture, to alignment, to distance control, to speed of entry, to psychology). You will love how incredibly basic and sophisticated this video is and how easily it will be to apply for you. Enjoy the lower scores and freedom!
