To improve your golf game, it’s vital that you take golf lessons. Golf is a sport that is almost impossible to learn without some sort of guidance. Luckily, there are golf experts around the country whose job it is to teach golf. By taking golf lessons, you can drastically improve your game in a relatively short amount of time. Taking golf lessons can be an expensive, time-consuming effort. And like any good or service that will cost money and require time, you should be careful before you buy.  Golf can be a really costly game to play and it is reasonable to assume that you have invested a fair amount of money in your equipment – golf clubs, golf bag, golf balls, golf clothing, golf cart etc; – therefore doesn’t it make common sense for you to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your skills and capabilities?

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

They All Under-Read the Break Knowing how break is defined is definitely not the same as being able to see and predict how much a putt will break (curve) on a real green for a real putt. Most

Almost all putts break one way or the other. Measurements show that about 98 percent of putts have at least some break or curvature in their roll to the hole. This occurs because greens are built with slight inclines to shed water. There are no dead-flat greens as they would create small depressions where water would pool after rain inhibiting grass growth and subsequent play. The only putts that don’t break are those that run straight uphill or straight downhill along the pure “downhill” or “fall line” direction of a green (as shown in Figure 7.2.4). Only about 2 percent of all putts line up purely along these lines. putts break and golfers know it. Yet in testing more than 1 500 golfers including 50 PGA Tour professionals I discovered an amazing truth about putting. Not one of these players was reading as much break as actually existed on any one of their putts. In fact most didn ‘t even come close to reading anywhere near the true break.

As shown in Figure 7.2.5 when I asked them to tell me how much break they saw or point to how much break they were going to play on a putt (where their Aimline extended as it passed the hole) most golfers saw only about 30 percent of the actual true break that existed for that putt. Think about that: If the real break was three feet (and 1’d measured it with the True Roller) they saw only about one foot; or if it was one foot they saw a little less than four inches. The PGA Tour pros were a little better reading slightly more break but even they saw only about a third or 33 percent of the actual amount of true break. Both those percentages have changed slightly since I first reported them because we changed how we

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 147 defined break (as measured at the hole distance instead of perpendicular to the ball-hole line).

Is it any wonder that of all the putts missed by amateur golfers 80 to 90 percent miss below the hole? Even Tour pros miss 70 to 80 percent of their misses on the low side. Obviously you would expect that if golfers under-read the break they should miss their putts below the hole. But that isn’t quite the whole story.

7.3 The Subconscious Knows Better

The Long Drive Bible: How You Can Hit the Ball Longer, Straighter, and More Consistently

Extract from the book:

I believe him. He has always been a great ball-striker (the best I ever measured) and he putted reasonably well but never great. He is a very talented player who did well with a somewhat complex putting stroke. But he would have putted better and won more with a better (which to me means simpler) putting stroke.

Next on my list of strokes (still moving toward simplicity) is the “blend” stroke a combination of the power stroke and a pure pendulum stroke usually employing a slight wrist hinge. A number of fine players putt this way including Brad Faxon Lee Janzen D. A. Weibring and Ben Crenshaw (Figure 3.5.9). Every one of these players is a wonderful putter and every one uses a predominantly pendulum motion with just a little bit of power provided by the hand muscles.

The small amount of wrist hinge each employs is done down the line so it doesn’t cause directional difficulty. When I’ve asked them about this motion they all say that their best putting days come when the stroke is more pendulum and less wrist. More proof that simplicity is the key ingredient in good putting.

The “right-hand push ” or “push stroke ” used by Jack Nicklaus has been a repeatable reliable performer for a long time. A friend once told me that Jack really wasn’t that good a player: He was just on a 30-year hot streak! Indeed Jack has putted consistently well throughout most of his career. Even today Jack’s putting remains unshakable perhaps the strongest part of his game.

Look at Figure 3.5.10 and you can see his right arm and hand arc behind the left pushing the putter through impact like a piston firing straight down the line. There is no putter rotation no forearm rotation and no wrist breakdown through the impact zone. The push stroke at its best and Jack at his best are and were almost unbeatable.

Methods of Putting 49

We are nearly at the simple end of the USGA-approved putting techniques. And it’s here that you encounter the long-putter method which is probably one option the ruling body would like to outlaw. But as long as it remains legal I suggest you give it a try (if for no other reason than to experience the feel and vision of a true pendulum motion). Because when done properly the long putter creates a wonderfully simple stroke (as demonstrated by Sam Torrance of the European Tour on the left side of Figure 3.5.1 1).
