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?

Establish Your Practice Framework 231 and/or body in a series of motions that you can see and feel. If these movements are out of rhythm you can abort the stroke by backing off walking away and starting all over again.

If you can’t execute your preputt ritual with good rhythm and timing you almost certainly won’t be ready to execute a good putting stroke either. I’ve changed my ritual since my last book on putting Putt Like the Pros to make it last less than five seconds. While every golfer’s ritual should be something he feels comfortable doing at a rhythm that fits his personality I’ll show you mine as an example.

My ritual is short and sweet done to a count of five at a cadence of 80 beats per minute. But rather than counting I say the following words to myself: “down look look back through” (moving from left to right in the photographs in Figure 11.4.1). Just before starting my ritual I lift my putter a quarter of an inch off the ground; this is my trigger which tells both my mind and body that I’m ready to go ready to start my ritual and strike my putt. It says that I ‘ve completed my routine committed to my preview stroke moved in from my preview stroke looked at the hole once to make sure I moved in properly and I’m ready to go (the trigger occurs after I’ve moved into my putting setup just before 1 start my five-count ritual).

In the first photograph you can see my putter up off the ground which is my trigger. In the next frame which occurs with the first count of my ritual I tap my putter “down.” Next I look” down my Aimline. Then I look” back down at the ball followed by starting the stroke (moving my putter “back” to the top of the backswing). The final step is “through ” my through-stroke which I hold at its finish until my putt stops rolling. Down look look back through. That’s pretty simple. You should be aware that these two “looks” are not the same kind of looks you make when you want to see how far the hole is. The ritual looks are glances meant to move

And you should leave room in your ritual to build in one or two personal idiosyncrasies; you’re likely to develop at least one. Most pros do. Nick Price for example sits his putter in front of his ball (luring his preshot ritual.

Defining How the Ball Rolls

Before getting into the mechanics of the putting stroke I’ll define some vocabulary which will help keep things simple and easy to understand throughout the book. In our Scoring Game Schools we routinely use words or phrases that you may not be familiar with. We do this because we’ve found that many golfers refer to the same things using different terms and sometimes use the same terms to describe different things.

Obviously this can lead to unnecessary confusion and disagreement. It helps to be more explicit in how you describe and define some of these concepts. For ex ample my staff and I never talk about “putting to there ” or putting “that way.”

Rather we talk about the “Aimline” you intend to start the ball rolling on the “ini tial line” you actually start the ball on and where the “ball track” goes after that.

Ball-Hole Line and Target Line

When we talk about the “ball-hole” line for any putt we mean the straight line between where the ball sits (before you putt it) and the hole (Figure 4.1.2). How ever because the hole is always your ultimate target some golfers call this their

Really flip your right wrist through the ball. This action will give you a lot more club head speed. It also eliminates any slice that you may have had because your left elbow isn’t flying on the follow through anymore. So, essentially you’re keeping the left elbow close to the body now. Before it was your right, and now it’s your left elbow that you are keeping tight to your body. Keep your left elbow close to your body, and flip the right wrist through the ball at the same time. You should feel the extra power this gives you.
