I made a discovery in physics that I don't think anyone in history has ever known (or articulated) before and it has BIG IMPLICATIONS for touch in putting, that most important part of the putting game that no one in golf has ever seriously tried to understand. It's this: if you toss a swing seat on a child's swing set back and up against gravity, the time it takes to coast to a stop is ALWAYS EXACTLY THE SAME and is also ALWAYS EXACTLY EQUAL TO THE METRONMIC TEMPO OF THAT SWING, given its length....
Today I would like to discuss putting. The most important part of the game. Working back from the hole, it gives you the most confidence in your game. If you putt well, you chip well, and if you chip well, your irons are hit well, and if you hit your irons well, well you drive the ball well. So for most and myself, it starts at the hole and moves back toward the tee.
