Haven't missed a put in 2 weeks

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

My friend is a medium (not that it has anything to do with this post, just cool as hell).  He is always teaching me about consperacy theries.  He doesnt play golf, and I think that is why this technique works so well, because he can look at it from the outside without thinking like a "golfer".

 

We were playing nine holes the other day and he litrally hit every putt that was inside 6 or 7 feet, 100%, and he did that every time we played.  I told him at the end of the round that he better tell me how he does it.  And basically, he taught me, and now I drano every one.  

 

He said the hard part about putting was you take your eye or the target to hit the ball.  When he is about to hit a putt shot he focuses his right eye on the ball and his left eye on the hole. It sounds impossible but he shown me how he did it.  First you focus on something real close to your face to cross your eyes, he uses a pinky finger bone from an ancient 100,000 year old man, but you can use a straw or whatever else.  I usually use a packet of catsup or a packet of tarter sauce if it was fish day.  After he crosses his eyes he leaves the right on on the ball, then he can move his left one independently toward the hole.

 

I just use it for golf but he uses it for all kinds of other stuff.  When he is paying for fast food, he keeps one eye on the money he is counting and the other on the cashier.  He also does it with his wife when they are using cialis, he keeps one eye on her face and the other on a stop watch to know when to be done.

 

Anyway, give it shot!

I need to meet this guy because I am terrible at putting. So you would say he is of medium height?

Give it a shot on greens with some break and speed and see how you go.

No no, I think he meant size medium, like shirts. Or maybe pants?

What if it was taco Tuesday? Would a little cup of salsa work instead of the ketchup or tartar sauce? And if so, can it be mild or hot, or does it have to be medium? I also sometimes fancy the green salsa .., will that work too or only red?

I think he meant a spiritual medium, as in someone who talks to ghosts...

Keegan Bradley uses the "evil eye" when lining up putts and this guy uses his lazy eye...

I recently chained my putting grip so I drain short putts and occasionally a long putt. If not it's close enough to 2 putt. Changing my grip altered my stance over the ball and my stroke too, and now my ball rolls so much better.

Recently, I was putting with one of my friends and he was like, "Damn, nice putt!" And, "Your ball seems to roll forever." We ended up having a putting contest. He asked how I was doing it and I showed him. He adopted my new way I learned and started sinking putts. I should've waited until after the contest, because we couldn't get a winner when we were both sinking putts. I had him 7 to 2 and we were going to 10 (least amount of putts wins the hole chosen).

Can't believe you took the time to write this lol.... You also have every characteristic of a serial killer in my books.

Crap, you must be good if you haven't missed out on a put -- the market is working well for you.

 

How's your putting?

Yes, but he can't make a call on a call correctly to save his life ;)

Gilberg = the greatest.

 

Great tip about the eyes. I actually can do that with my nostrils when trying to smell two different smells at the same time, but not with my eyes. The key is to dab a line of vaseline on the line that separates them and that traps any molecules that could interfere with the nostrils working independently of each other. Unfortunately, it's not useful for golf, but it works great when trying to decide what to eat for lunch at a mall food court. 

 

Oddly enough though, I do have a piece of big toe bone from an ancient man (carbon dated to only 30,000 years though b4_blushing.gif) and I tried to use that, but I think I scratched my cornea. It's actually not a total loss though because I was right eye dominant and now while it's healing, my left eye is getting much stronger. Ask your friend if this is normal progress for learning this. 

 

Also, lastly, someone here needs to pat Wally on the head and explain to him what's going on.

"He is always teaching me about consperacy theries" " he uses a pinky finger bone from an ancient 100,000 year old man",  Perhaps I'm a bit of a cynic, but a few things here just don't seem too kosher..........let me ask you, does the ancient man travel with him to every course and is it possible you might be able to pass along his email address? I have a few questions for him.
