Putting & Chipping

Think of executing 5 Foot or shorter Putts with your foundational and proven effective ‘8 Step Putting & Chipping Pre-Shot Routine’. (PSR) Review this discipline regularly.

We all benefit from knowing ourselves better over time. “Who am I and what works most efficiently?” Do you use the ‘15 Inch Intermediate Target’ in your ‘PSR’ for all golf shots? You searching for reliable magic? This boldly qualifies.

When properly ‘Set-Up’ (full data collection and preparation accomplished) … ready to ‘Trigger’ … do you focus on the ball or on the entry point of the cup? People generally do not think about the ‘Back, Side or Front Doors’. Have actually seen the ball go past the hole and come back! That green was certainly not level or flat.

This ‘Country Gentleman Golf Teacher’ visualizes these last 4 to 5 feet of getting to the cup. (Straight or Breaking) I see a ‘Green Ball Rolling Line’. It is generally very helpful and accurate.

Your 555 Team knows how real it is to think that “All Putts Are Dead Straight”. Avoid any sensation of Fade or Draw Putting! There is no practical need to create ‘Curvature’. Make a Straight Ball Rolling Line. Allow Mother Nature to respectfully create curvature.

Remember, the slower the ‘Rolling Velocity’ of the goal ball coming to the hole, the greater will be the break or curvature.

If you miss the cup your ball should roll 12 to 17 inches past the cup. Go to school on this 12 to 17 Inches. You are about to have to make it coming back. Your observation is very important!   

Our ‘555 Academy’ mantra is “No Three Putts!” Saving 10 to 20 Flat Stick or Short Strokes a round makes golf life much more FUN? ‘Process Golf Trumps Outcome Golf’.
