Daily Lessons 176-185

Lesson 176-Putting practice is not like full swing practice. Why? You're putting stroke changes speed depending on the length of the putt.


Lesson 177-Feel for distance is developed in two ways. Mechanical or visual. It helps to know which you use to create productive practice.


Lesson 178-Example of mechanical feel? Pacing off putts to get an exact distance to the hole. Measurement triggers appropriate mechanics


Lesson 179-Visual feel? Letting your vision tell you how far. Easy to tell by the player who constantly looks from the ball to the hole.


Lesson 180-Think of feel on a sliding scale. Visual/perceptual at one end and mechanical at the other. Where do you fall on the scale?


Lesson 181-Hard to be a good putter if your concept of feel is at an extreme end of the scale. improve by finding a balance between the two.


Lesson 182-When practicing don't avoid your weaknesses. Visual players should understand mechanics. Mechanics should improve perception


Lesson 183-Feel is combination of how you judge distance, direction and create the appropriate putter speed and face position at impact


Lesson 184-How do you judge distance on the putting green? Is it accurate? If visual beware of illusions built into the green to fool you.
