    Putting Tips

    I have trouble with 8-10 footers with break running away from me I find it difficult to roll those types of putts. Been using the line on the ball and keeps my eyes sharp and bit easier to roll right to left using the line

    Pulling short putts

    When I started playing golf Most of my short putt misses are pushes and when I started using the line on the ball the pushes disappeared Short pulled putts happen more now and when it does I agree the poster about over active left arm. Just use the forehand only to putt with and relax the other arm

    What are Your 2018 Golf Goals?

    Had a look at my video swing from 5 years ago and notice I tend “not to swing my arms” Falling back to that pattern when I grip too tightly with my thumb and forefinger and lose strength my upper back and neck and losing posture Guess I have to stretch and contract those muscles between my shoulder blade Will have to do that as daily exercise

    Brooks Koepka putting grip

    Is it me or does it seems like he’s not compulsively wiping the putter blade as much as he use too?
  6. I try to use the putter for uncomplicated lies in the light fringe. Any time the ball is sitting up or nested inside deeper grass around the green I take out the wedge. Sometimes I will take out the hybrid if ball in in light fringe and I have to roll the ball through multiplable crests and trough toward the hole

    Shot Clock on the PGA Tour

    I dont have all the answer but something has to be done. It’s ruining the game . I think it’s unfair when one player slows up the entire group. There should be a stop clock on every single player and posted so everyone knows who the slowest player is

    Shot Clock on the PGA Tour

    How about we let the next group play through and reset.

    Shot Clock on the PGA Tour

    How about we let the next group play through and reset. How are they doing it at the European tour?

    Shot Clock on the PGA Tour

    Like this idea Everyone should get X amount of time to finish the round. Get maybe 2 special “time outs” if OB or really difficult lies to figure how to proceed

    Putting Issues

    I gone entirely too much with “playing “ putting stroke instead of focusing making putts when I am at the course I like practising 5-10 footers ,learn the speed of the green , accept that I can’t will all of the them into the hole I want to be fast at putting so there’s less chance to freeze up however I know I weak on the left to right breakers so I spend a bit more time preputt routine to imagine the hole going into the hole in my mind

    Which move changed your game for good?

    Random tips that have worked for myself Greenside bunker . Splash the ball and sand out. Make sure the butt end is pointed away from my body at address. For longer bunker shots that tip doesn’t apply just hit a normal fat lob shot Long putt make sure the butt end is pointed at my belly button the longer the putt the longer the stroke Strong left forearm hold for more power Slide right hand closer together for more precision inside 140 yards Weak left forearm grip for lobs Hands further apart for more leaverage over 50 yards

    Go to club or shot from 125 yards. READ ORIGINAL POST!!!

    I don’t like using full swing for anything under 140 yards i have better accuracy starting with 3/4 knockdown type swing say 8I for 130-140 yard 9I knockdown for 120-130 yards PW knockdown for 110-120 yards GW for 100-110 The difference is i don’t swing as wide with 3/4 swing and finish lower. Try not to get too narrow. Tricky distance for me is 60-100 yards i use one club usually it’s a SW or GW close to 54 degrees try to flatten my swing by looping my swing It’s mostly feel for that distance I pre close the club face to amount of height and distance I want to carry as it translates to degrees of closure

    Feel Ain't Real

    Remember a playing lesson with Jim Furyk on the Golf Channel and when asked how he loops his swing. He simply says that he doesn’t feel it loops even though it’s very obvious to others watching him He says that his swing “FEELS straight back and straight through “

    Body vs Arm Swing

    I suppose I guess for me body means everything ARMs, trunks , legs. ALL need to be coordinated to produce a good golf swing A pure arm swing means the trunk and legs stay stable A flop shot would be a pure arm swing for me
