The Art of Putting: The Revolutionary Feel-Based System for Improving Your Score

The Art of Putting: The Revolutionary Feel-Based System for Improving Your Score Review

Good book. Helped me improve the way I was approaching putting, albeit not everything fits me.. I'm more a mallet-putter type and won't go back to blades, so had to work a bit around the concepts expressed in the book to adapt them to my putting style. Still, I share a big deal of "principles" and having them laid out in plain and simple english really helped out. One example is distance control: your body has it inside, no mechanics thinking can match that.. but Stan points rightly to the fact that only achieving consistent ball impact unlocks your "natural" talent (just as for any other club). And as a more funky note, reading this book helped me click about how to properly drive the ball.. and it works!
Overall, I would recommend this book to any golfer willing to learn the basics and sound fundamentals that underlie a solid putting stroke.. but some work will be left for you to adapt and integrate all this into your own style.
