Listen For It

We are well-served by NOT turning our heads too early to watch the ‘Ball Rolling Line and the Outcome’ (Fear Oriented). As you well know, your ‘555 Team’ are foundational ‘Process Golfers’ (Love & Comfort Oriented). We like to focus on our specific ‘Pre Shot Routines’ (Building Trust) and then just ‘Letting IT Happen’. If you have earned success, the ball will ‘Find The Bottom Of The Cup’ and you can actually enjoy “Listening For It”. (The Rattle)

As you well know, we are proponents of ‘The Steady Head’ with all golf procedures. ‘Ocularly Acute Captain Eyes’ invite the ‘Steady Headed’ benefits. (see ‘The Tether Ball Pole’) If your head is moving around, it is highly likely that your ‘Putter Head’ (Clubhead) will be as well. A poorly controlled ‘Sweet Spot’ shall produce a ‘Poorly Controlled Ball Flight’. (see ‘Sloppy Energy Transfer’ with too much induced ‘Spin Rate’) Pretty logically sensible? (see ‘Marking Your Golf Balls’ …Use a 1.5” Line that Matches the Target Line & 1 Ballistic Dot placed on each end at the Bottom Inside Cheek Point or BIC)

We have our ‘Heads or Tails Bullet-Proof Skill Drill’. Great asset! We also have our really key ‘Intermediate Target’, which is about 15 inches in front of the ball on the ‘Initial Ball Rolling Line’. (also ‘Initial Ball Flight Line’ for Stage 3 Procedures involving Wrist Cock & Pivot) Might I suggest that you keep focus on the ‘Heads or Tails Drill’ until your golf ball has actually rolled over ‘The 15 Inch I/T’ (see ‘Ball Rolling Line Gate). Thereafter, allow your ‘Ocular Mental Focus’ to smoothly and gently follow the ball ‘Down The Line’ (DTL). (see ‘The 8 Step Putting & Chipping Pre Shot Routine & Diagram’)

Why does the ‘555 Team’ utilize this ‘Chase, Follow, Finish & Hold’ procedure? Because you must allow your mind to evaluate your performance. In this manner you can improve your technique and performance by gathering ‘Performance Data’. (see ‘Accumulate, Load, Store, Deliver & Release’ … ALSDR … The highly useful ‘Power Line Delivery Sequence’)

If ‘Listening For The Rattle At The Bottom Of The Cup’ were all that mattered, you could practise ‘Get Lucky Putting In The Dark’! Best Of Luck’ in that endeavour!

Can you handle a closing ‘Posture Point’? The Taller you stand the ‘Rounder Your Orbital Clubhead Path and the Flatter Your Swing Plane’. The more bent over (Forward Inclined), the ‘Straighter Your Putting and Chipping Stroke and Roll’ shall become. (see ‘The Kyphotic, Brace Hand Push, the Nicklaus Putting Technique’)
