During a recent putting clinic covering rhythm and tempo I wanted to examine what happens to balance during the stroke. The players all accomplished a ‘before’ 10 foot putt standing on the BodiTrak mat then we jumped into training. We worked with basic mechanics first, then progressed to something different: each player simply was asked […]
Want to know a way to improve your putting with a stabilized platform? Did you ever build a children’s swing set? Let’s see; you’ll need two A frames, a pole between, eye bolts, some chain, and a seat. The eye bolt is the fulcrum of the swing set. When a kid (or you) jump on […]

Besides meeting and learning from some wonderful people, I had the chance to purchase the BLAST training system for teachers and players. It uses a small sensor easily connected to any club measuring tempo, rhythm, and more. In particular, face rotation […]

Thanks to a number of colleagues we have pressure traces available from some of the best golfers in the world. What […]
The end of the 2015 PGA Tour left us with some interesting statistics to ponder, and adjust our goals for the next playing season (tomorrow, here in Arizona). How about this result (ugh) oriented goal: Make all my putts from three feet! Caution! Caution! Big Mistake Alert! Of all the PGA Tour players that played during […]
