About this product
- DescriptionAfter studying the techniques of the game's best putters over the past fifty years, and helping a few of them write books on the craft, I have come up with a consensus on putting technique that will put you in the tour pro class. I have found that there are some universals of technique that all golfers at every level of competence can put in their games and lower their scores. The consensus culminates in a stroke concept and method that almost all the great putters in the game's history have employed, and a lot of very good ones, some perhaps without even kwing it or at least articulating it. You will find little to mention of it in conventional putting instruction, even in the books on putting I have helped professionals write. I am confident this little book will improve your putting dramatically in a very short time.
