I got quite a few emails about the video of me putting and about my visceral reaction to the video. The general tone was that I made one and almost made the other two.
There is no correct way to putt, however, there are some general things that can help. One is keeping things in front of you so you don’t have to manipulate the face at the ball.
On those putts, my right arm and the putter got behind me immediately off the ball. I then had to use skill and eye hand coordination to manipulate the face on line. I get away with it on short putts, but my intermediate and long putts have been horrendous and that’s why I haven’t played better.
Frank worked with me a bit and it felt like I was taking the putter outside and I was just a hair, but for me, that is better than behind me.
The last day I was there, Frank and I had a match with two mini tour players. I made the most birdies and won the most money…LOL. I putted much better and it felt better than it has in years. I played 9 on Saturday afternoon and made 5 birdies.
Watch the video again (and watch how I get behind me right off the ball) and when I can, I will post a video of me keeping my right arm and the putter more in front of me. This is the opposite of swing crack. It felt better and I got results immediately.
