So yesterday I took off of work to go play golf with a former co-worker who retired. I have been playing golf for less than a year and he has been playing for 30 years. I recently took an Aimpoint class with Mike Dynda from around Reading and I've only been able to practice it twice.
Anyway, yesterday we decide to play at Eagles Crossing in Carlisle PA. It had rained all night making the greens waterlogged but it was 50 degrees. The rain actually helped me because I was able to determine after 2 minutes that the stimp was 8.
I don't know how many of you have done the midpoint reading technique but that is actually the only way I do it now. Using this technique I was able to get the break perfect on 17 of 18 holes often times "out reading" my former co-worker who I would consider a really good reader of putts! On two occassions he read the break the exact opposite of what I determined it to be and I was right!
I am so excited about this it's not even funny. Don't get me wrong I did not make many one putts but my issue was all speed and I only left myself with very short second putts. It just amazes me how easy it is.
I now know that I need to get my speeds right because at least 8 of my putts would have dropped were the speed right!
I would ask you guys though one thing. I got a chart book but everyone keeps talking about a student workbook? Where do I go about getting one of those?
