putt it...if it doesn't go in, putt it again...continue until ball in hole :)


I'm closest to this. My version was "line it up so it goes in the hole". Is thinking like Barnesy considered good or bad?
Almost regarded by one member as the best non-golf playing golfer on this forum.

Pace is more important than line. Hitting the putters sweet spot is very important to consistent pace. Most three putts are errors of pace rather than direction. The rule is decide the pace and pick the line for that pace, not the other way around. Common sense really.

The Aimpoint Express read system is a quick method to read the line of a putt. Really simple and quick, the only requirement is to gauge the degree of slope with your feet. It is a system that requires the student to be shown by demonstration rather than by written directions. A few of us at Wanny use it.......it does work.

When you don't read a putt and just hit it and hope then any system won't work.
I just have to give each putt it's due worth.

Hope this doesn't sound like a stupid question but is Aimpoint Express a quick / shorter version of Aimpoint or is that it's proper name? I have heard from some who have done the course that is good but requires a lot of time to get it right.
