My website has had a nice free PDF collection of neuroscience explanations cherry-picked from thousands of videos available on line, so that golfers and golf teachers can catch up to the past 20-25 years of revolution about the human brain and body. Neuroscience research has expanded human understanding of the brain and body by 350 times more than was ever known in all human history up to 1989. Golfers, golf teachers, golf "psychs", motor sports "experts", and even educational experts don't know any of this science. I checked, and have been checking for 20+ years. Public school teachers and university educational experts have "started" catching up about 3 years ago, at Harvard and a few other well-endowed factories, but generally, they are further down the track for catching up than anyone else in the above list....
I just wanted to share my excitement about today's "release" of the first DVD from the PuttingZone initiative, "The Reality of Putting -- Geoff Mangum with Steve Elkington". It's a real humdinger! The DVD is available here: TheRealityofPutting.com....
I'm launching an online educational training curriculum for putting instruction that is in the beta testing phase, so if you're interested in attending a live online seminar of PuttingZone teachings at no charge / free, just send me email at email@example.com with "SITD" in the subject line. The first seminar will be this weekend (exact time to be announced in the invitation).

Tiger Woods has had a longstanding problem with his putting distance control. He was told by his caddie Steve Williams in October 2006 that three-putting was his ONLY flaw in the game, and that if he could somehow learn how to complete four rounds without a three-putt, he would increase his win rate from 30% to 85%. (That's TRIPLE the wins and money every year!)
Today, there has been no improvement. Williams describes the current state of Tiger's putting in frank and unflattering terms. Williams says that Tiger can't win at St Andrews without good lag distance control....
