I read a book about putting by a guy called Dave Pelz. Apparently he is good at what he does. The only thing I honestly remember is you should hit the ball 17 inches past the hole. Technically if the hole is in the way it falls in, but that’s how to judge how hard to hit it if it misses. He used a robot to prove the concept. Anything with robots will convince me. Except that vacuum robot. They’re silly.

Apart from that, I think you should miss “pro side”. I don’t know what it means but I sound knowledgeable when I say it.

Hello everyone.

My name is wOzz.

I have 6 putters.

Going back to the 1st nationals at the GC l was lost with my putting.

In the time since then, l have learn't a few things.

 

Get fitted for the putter.

It's the most used club in the bag.

 

The problem isn't the putter it's you.

 

Have putting lessons.

 

Practice your putting.

If you turn up and have a putt for 5 minutes before the round, that's not practice.

Putting practice is boring, l know.

 

With practice comes routine and an address position that works, repeatedly.

Your confidence, as a result will increase.

 

Silent wrists help over those knee trembling short putts.

 

Give yourself permission to hole EVERY putt.

 

PRACTICE , PRACTICE , PRACTICE.

This new job I have which was supposed to give me all the time in the world for golf but in reality has given less than ever has actually helped my putting.
A simple drill you can do at home on carpet is have a half blacked out ball and just hit 2/3/4/5 foot putts and make sure it rolls properly, if it stays on axis the stroke is good then you can worry about the line more.
My putting inside 6 feet has improved by 2-4 shots per round with this and it's very cheap and easy. I'll usually hit no less than 50 putts a day after work.

I'm hearing you Francie.

Between work and anniversaries and other stuff at home, 2017 has been terrible for playing OOM's.

I'm out for the last OOM as well, but by the skin of my teeth the Nationals are all good.

That's the main thing, Wozz.......being at the Nationals as a former winner.   Looking forward to our group on Saturday week.
