Natural athletes make AVERAGE golfers. I'm a perfect example ... stick and ball sports came easy to me. Golf came way easier for me than anyone else I know (just wish I started earlier in life). I'll never be a good golfer because of my obvious lack of putting ability. I think the obvious answer is ball striking comes easier for natural athletes --- HOWEVER --- the real question is this ...
is putting easier for natural athletes ??
I think being a natural athlete has far less to do with putting - seems to me as for putting - you either have it or you don't - you can't learn it like you can a golf swing.
What, putting is one of the easiest things to learn, practice, and improve in golf. It's a slow, small, identical movement each time, not sure if srs.
