Could you save 5 shots per round?

 
Let’s get that putter working for you
 
If you struggle to make enough 6, 8, 10 and 12-foot putts on a flat lie, there’s a real possibility that your putter is getting in the way of your fun. If you’re struggling, then set up as shown below and try 10x10 foot putts (on a flat surface).
 
If you’re feeling uncomfortable in this setup, or you’re still struggling to sink enough straight-forward, flat putts, then try a putter with a shorter shaft. What happens then? You might be very surprised.
 
Is 35“ too long for you? The average shaft length on a putter is 35“. That’s too long for the majority of golfers. It’s longer than the average putter length on the PGA Tour. Can you get into a posture that allows you to setup correctly and deliver the putter face square at impact with 35“?

Improving your ability to square the putter face at impact will take up to 5 shots off your scorecard. There are some simple keys to that improvement. Set up and putter are part of that equation. So come and see us.

How good could you be?

 
Make the most of any practice
 

Last week, we introduced you to Geoff Colvin.
He has a theory about “Deliberate Practice”.
This isn’t about beating balls until your hands bleed.
It’s about making the most of any time you practice.

 
Colvin recommends identifying a skill you want to acquire, or particular golf shot you want to master.
There are then two sorts of very deliberate practices on the way to mastering the skill or shot in competition.
Let’s say you’re trying to become a master of the 40-yard pitch-shots that stops quickly.
 
 
Block practice
While developing the ability to repeat the movements
that will create a consistently controlled and measured
40-yard pitch shot, you will hit shot after shot,
until you’re comfortable.
Random practice
On the course, you’ll need to play this shot at random.
So create that in practice. Hit different golf shots,
similar in sequence to a real golf game. Tee shot,
approach, short (40 yards) pitch.

 
 
Start your journey. We want to help.
 
Why don’t you give “Deliberate Practice” a try? Start with an Assessment. Let’s agree on a particular skill to be improved. We’ll teach you the correct technique. We’ll give you the practice program. We’ll check in every week with feedback. After two weeks, let’s test your new skill. How good could you be?
