Just got the dvd! Pretty cool so far, does anyone have that putting tutor thing he talks about? Seems like a good training aid but its kind of expensive for a little piece of plastic with two marbles on it.
"Secrets of the Short Game" by Phil Mickelson - Page 7
I thought that arrangement was short lived and very much past tense.
Since 2009 I believe. Stockton though was at a loss for words when Phil went to the belly. Stockton is now learning about the belly himself as a result. Phil went back to the standard putter for the President's Cup, and I think plans on using the standard to start the 2012 season.
lol The backwards shot is hilarious. The funniest part of the YouTube video is when he goes "Ohhh, man... I read the green wrong!". Cracks me up.
Distance and muscle memory should come pretty quick with the hinge and hold. I started being comfortable with it after about 3 months of practice and still use it to this day 2 years later. I haven't found anything that works as well to date.
I still have the DVD and watch it even 2 years later.
There's a lot of good stuff in it. I like how he shows his specialty , the flop shot.
In it, he describe how it's an "indirect impact" by hitting the ground, more a fun shot than a scoring shot.
I think I finally understand the concept now, as the wedge has to make contact undernealth the ball .
a last resort shot ,better to use when short sided and no green to work with.
Mickelson hits his flop shot really"heavy" with the force of full swing.
I notice that I can do something similiar if I have a perch lie with air underneath but the ball goes miles over the green as the force isnt transfer to the ground.
For those shots I tried to hit the ball "light" by releasing grip pressure at impact.
