Everyone loves to hit the long ball. Nothing like splitting the fairway with that perfect drive. Most of the time we can be fixated on getting those extra yards to the point we "need" that new driver. The latest and greatest from Golf Digest's Hot List or the local Golf Show. We do our research and come home with what we think is our holy grail driver. Most of the time the lustre wears off after awhile and the cycle once again continues. Sound familiar, I have to admit I've been there.
For some the "putter" or putting can be somewhat the same scenario as the driver. I feel more golfers should concentrate a little more practise putting then smashing their driver at the range. For me putting is so important and has become mostly about feel since I got serious about golf. It's also been the most consistent part of my game, mainly to do with being introduced to SeeMore Putters and their RST technology a few years back. I also like putting gadgets like David Keller's "Train Your Aim" putting aid. Concentrating on your putter and putting will do most a world of good.
Look at Bubba Watson a few weeks ago at the Northern Trust Open. Bubba noted for his long ball, won that tournament because of his putting. He even spoke of the importance of making putts at Riviera.
Remember Bubba's 10-footer for par on No. 10 to stay in the hunt in the final round or his pair of birdies to twice tie for the lead, from 30 feet on No. 11 and from 5 feet on the par-3 16th. He ended up the week at 1.316 Strokes gained putting.
The same can be said for Adam Scott the last few weeks. His putting has made the difference in turning out two wins back to back no less.
- Scott ended up 17th in strokes-gained putting and 10th in putts per GIR.
For me more emphasis should be place on your putter and putting. So why not get some insight from David Keller maker of the Train Your Aim putting aid.
