THE FIRST 8 to 12 INCHES: that magic foot

Pure logic simply applied! What golfer does not feel and know the first 12 inches of his ‘Putting Stroke? Had better! “There Is A Putt In My Driver! I Drive As I Putt!” Makes sense to this ‘Country Gentleman Golf Teacher’! (see ‘The 5 Set-Ups & The 5 Essential Elements’ … Are there not Clubface Aim, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Sweet Spot and Angle Of Attack’ in each and every swing, regardless of the preselected tool?) Simplicity always rules where complexity abounds!

How simply and quietly do you take your ‘Putter Head’ away, especially the Grass-Sweeping Sole? I venture to guess ‘VERY’!

How simple is the ‘First 8 to 12 Inches’ in this ‘Sweeping Putter Take Away’? How quiet are your ‘Elbows, Forearms, Wrists and Hand Triangles’? Thus, how stable is this event? ‘VERY’!

What if you were to take your Driver Head away, ‘The First 8 to 12 Inches’, in the same manner as your ‘Putter Head’? Can hear you thinking! The Set-Up is different but significantly similar.

I strongly urge you to try exactly this motion discipline. The driver is a very much larger ‘Swing Circle’ but, in the microcosm, the ‘Putter’ is precisely the same when you examine the minutia!

Use your ‘Putting Grip’ when putting and your ‘Full Swing Grip’ when you are ‘Driving’.

Remember, your ‘Pulmonary Function’ is also very similar. You create the necessary golf thrust or power by athletically ‘Breathing Out’. (see ‘DDB’ – Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing)

You must also exercise your ‘Ocular Acuity’ with full trust and authority.

Enjoy!
