So this post is a follow up to my last post regarding 3 common misconceptions recreational players have about their putting. Below you will find the 3 things you should definitely focus on when putting.  Pretty simple. Makes me ask why do we get so distracted with so many other things? 1. Feel the break […]

I recently met here in Las Vegas with Mario Bevilacqua, who Golf Digest ranks as one of top teachers in America.  We discussed the most common misconceptions people have regarding reading putts.  I want to begin with a post about putting misconceptions because we hear and see them all of the time.  My next post […]
