What’s More Precious Than A Diamond In The Rough? The Perfect Putter On The Green. Here’s How To Find A Flat Stick That Fits Every Aspect Of Your Putting Game
By Martin Kaufmann
So, you can’t hit your driver 250 yards. So what? We all know driving’s for show anyway. The money club, the crown jewel of your bag, is the putter. It’s the great equalizer, the club that makes or breaks your score. Many of us spend a lifetime searching for the perfect putter, amassing impressive collections of weird-looking clubs in the process (admit it, you own at least five that belong in a garage sale). Take heart – there is an ideal putter for you out there. The smartest ways to find it are to take your time, do some research and – most important – get fitted.
Some golf apps really have proven to improve the games of those who use them
Tiger Woods, for all of his personal faults, is indisputably one of the greatest golfers to ever pick up a 9 iron. In his case, it didn’t happen by accident. Because of his unrivaled celebrity, at least in the game of golf, his background has been oft reported. Woods was considered a prodigy by the age of two. This was thanks to extensive training from his father Earl, who was himself an accomplished athlete (He was one of the first black baseball player in the NCAA).
If Woods seems impervious to pressure, it’s because he’s been golfing on national television since he was very young. When he was three, he putted against Bob Hope. At the age of eleven, son was already able to best father, and according to Earl, this has remained constant. As it stands, Woods has won 72 tournaments over the course of his career, and Sports Illustrated named him the best athlete of the aughts.
Everyone says your swing is great, but you just can’t seem to get your scores down no matter what you do
Spending a little time changing the way you think just might be your key to better scoring.
For the most part when your game starts to go bad, you tend to blame your swing mechanics for your bad play when, in reality, it is the way you are thinking that is actually hurting your swing and thus your scores.
Have any of the following thoughts ever come into your mind during a round? “I am playing so good. I hope I can get past that darn 13th hole.” “If I can just keep it out of the water, I’ve got a chance at a good round.” “I have to be careful here so I don’t take too big of a swing.”
Golf has long been thought of a man’s sport
Certainly, the cliché of the old male retiree who spends his time chipping away on hole 14 at the club still exists. If your only association with golf came from what you watched on national television, you would get the impression that only men played (though to be fair, all women’s sports receive little to no television exposure).
But the truth of the matter is that over the past few decades, women have been hitting the links in increasing numbers. Dynamic players such as Michelle Wie, Annika Sorenstam and Cristie Kerr have influenced many women across the country to pick up a driver. Sportswear companies are for the first time ever producing women’s golf shoes in mass even.
What the women who are new to the game have discovered in the past years, however, is something men have known all along: Golf is not as easy as it looks. There’s a learning curve to be sure, and it can a long, long time before you reach the level of just being adequate. Thankfully, there are a bevy of instructional books that can be phenomenally helpful towards improving your golf game. And many of these books have been marketed specifically to women. Here are a few of the best.
Six Steps to Unconscious Putting with Golf
Psychology Have you forgotten how good a putter you are? Well, the older they get, the more golfers tend to forget how easy putting really is. They also forget how good they used to putt when they were younger and more carefree. You often hear the golf pundits on television talking about how some or other up and coming young professional hasn't yet learned how difficult putting really is.
They sometimes go on to talk about how the accumulation of years of missed putts slowly frazzles the nerves and undermines the confidence of the older and more experienced golfers. Maybe that's how they justify their own inability to maintain their competitiveness on the tour. It's small wonder that they're now commentating rather than playing.
