Since purchasing my putter a few months back, I believe I have subconsciously decided that this will be my focus over the next 5 months. Without question I will continue to train and prepare physically, but I think I need to work on all things putting. It is something that most players would naturally support, however in my case I am going to start from the ground up. I will leave nothing for granted and will examine everything.
Over the years, my putting has gone through some peaks and valleys. But mostly, it was the most consistent part of my game. Last year, it was still very solid, however I think it can be better. The only way to know is to dissect all the aspects of my putting and try different things. I am not 100% sure of where I need to start because I take a ‘whole approach’ to putting.
This change to my golf game is going to be the most difficult I have attempted in many years. I am going to examine my core fundamentals of my short game with the intent of trying to find something better. I realize this may be an exercise in futility, but I feel it is something that needs to be tried. I have 5 months to effect a positive change and if not, then I can say that I tried and that my current putting routine is the best for my game.
This little adventure is going to be fun. I think I will learn the pros and cons of trying different putting techniques that will help me in the future. Regardless, I will be sharing my findings in the hopes that it helps our game as well.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links.
