Every golfer can putt. Yes that is a true statement, but in reality not many golfers
could be classed as good putters and that includes tour pros.
But lets be clear here, when we play golf we actually play two separate games, both
involving a swing mechanism, but NOT the same swing mechanism. If we take an average
golfer, putting will account for about 45% of the total score, whereas a driver
only accounts for perhaps 15%. But remember that a 300 yard drive is the same as
a 3 foot putt, they both count as one shot.
The mechanics that make up a good putter will not stand up well on the tee, likewise
a player with a beautiful and effective swing with a driver will not necessarily
be a good putter. The mechanics do not cross over because the requirements are different.
If you look at the All Time Best Ball-Strikers and the All Time Best Putters the
lists are as follows, but what is interesting is that no single name appears in both
lists, even though they all won a lot of titles along the way:
So having studied the subject over a number of years, I have concluded that the basics
are very simple and consist of only three elements. The more complex you make it
the less repeatable it is and the simpler you make it the morerepeatable it is.
Most golfers suffer from poor alignment, which when coupled with a bad putting action,
can only result in too many missed putts. There is very little point in reaching
the green on a 450 yard par 4 in two, only to leave the green with a five or a six
on your card.
Our lessons will teach you the basic three elements and how to repeat them, so that
the part of your game that you may have come to dread, will become enjoyable and,
more importantly, will make practising more enjoyable, which in turn will make your
putting stroke more repetitive, lowering your scores and handicap in the process.
Follow up lessons will be charged at £15.00 per half hour, or £25.00 per hour.
