PUTTING

“PUTTING ZONE” – THE ONLY COMPLETE PUTTING EDUCATION IN THE HISTORY OF GOLF

“You don´t necessarily have to be a good golfer to be a good putter, but you have to be a good putter to be a good golfer.”

Putting is presently undergoing a renaissance. Throughout the years many books, films, etc. have been on the market on the subject of “Putting”. Some of these ideas are pure nonsense, while others have some gold lining and truth in them. Pelz, Chuck Hogan, Aimpoint, Vector Putting and several others are good examples of these ideas but none of them are complete. The only complete education is PuttingZone, as it integrates all the necessary skills.

Some putts are "harder" than others

PuttingZone is the complete education where you after a few weeks practice will be able to coach yourself even in competions. Feedback and selfconfidence comes by itself. Putting is a big part of golf and is a “game within the game”. Some of us may never be able to hit the ball as accurately, powerfully or consistently as a scratch player, but with education, we can realistically hope to putt like one. Fundamentally, the FOUR BASIC SKILLS every golfer needs to master for putting are: - READING THE GREEN ….. determine an effective target to aim at, serving both line and distance.

When practice, use the same balls as you play with

- AIMING THE PUTTER-FACE AND BODY………aim the putter-face and the setup straight at the target -ROLLING THE BALL (STROKE) ……….. putt the ball straight away from the putter face on the same line as it aims at address - CONTROLLING DISTANCE…..roll the ball with good touch so it always arrives with the same terminal (arrival) speed at the hole, regardless of the length of the putt Of the four skills for excellent putting — reading, aiming, stroking, and controlling distance (touch) — touch is by far the most important, since touch is the basis for reading and stroking. Without good rhythm (touch), the golfer never reaches his or her potential on the green.

Summary From 1 meter all players perform well but from 2 meters one clearly sees that there starts to be a difference in the success percentages. 3m is like a magic borderline.  The best player has 66% of holed putts and the 20th only make 50%. At competitions, most Golf Federations recommend that the hole/flag-position shall be placed on a flat area approximately 2 meters around the hole.  Most of the time it is also pretty flat up to 3m.  If you would be able to hole 75% of your putts from 3 m, it will change your scoring massively. Above 3 meter the percentage drops a lot. Jordan Spieth, 2015th  nr 1 rank in the world, was at that moment the best from 6m with 12% holed putts. From 10m the best putters in the world get less than 2 balls out of 100.

The Empirical Conclusion:

Worldclass

For me it is obvious: – Read the greens correctly & Control distances to avoid disasters – Make most putts inside 3 meters!

The Big Picture

You must be able to see “The Big Picture” ……. what putting (and short game) have to do with scoring…….. In putting we learn the skills from the ground and up. You have three shots that determine what sort of demands you face for putting: the first putt after hitting the green in regulation – the first putt after chipping on for a par save after missing the green in regulation – the putt remaining after a lag putt or a chip-on for par save…..you can read more about this if you click on the PDF file below.
