The path to a better putting game
The internet has seen an explosion of putting advice. Anyone with an internet connection and a mobile phone can offer their advice.
- Have you seen Tiktok?
A plethora of information but is any of this really helping?
My contention that the information explosion is making something that should be quite simple – rolling the ball along the grass – into a minefield of frustration, confusion and mental agony.
The reason a lot of the quick tip stuff is so popular is because it’s offers the miracle cure.
It hits our greed gland. Hard.
All we have to do is (buy new putter or try new grip or practice new tip) and we’ll putt like a demon.
They are every golfer’s dream.
But the irony is the very thing that we think can help us is the thing that’s actually destroying our game.
