Hi Dirters! My Flatstick Forum now has over 1,500 threads based upon golfers' asking me questions about putting and putters and players and training aids and putting history and greens etc., each with 2-3 response posts by me, so that is between 3,000 and 4.500 detailed, comprehensive replies I've written in recent years. So here's the link: www.network54.com/Forum/52812/.

  • Sure, Linda! What you term "body intention" putting is not a term I will use, but bear with me. Your conceptualization of what is helping reduce or avoid the yips phenomenon is probably not cast in terms that are real, but we can still make progress. The problem with the yips is a) the psychological damage tends to grow into chronic negative emotions and expectations that make the physical problem more intractable, and b) the physical dysfunction in the pattern of body movement that is being...

  • Geoff Mangum - created a new topic "Anchoring" Ban -- Possible Lawsuit Analysis in the forum.
    If you're interested, I posted an analysis of a potential lawsuit against the USGA for the ban on "anchoring" strokes and the possible banning of belly or long putters, here: PuttingZone Blog: Lawsuit re "Anchoring" Ban.

    Cheers!

  • I just updated the free PDF for brain science that golfers can use to (sort of) catch up a bit on this critical 25+ years of research completely unknown in golf. Go here to get the free download, for what it's worth or what you can make of it. <a href="http://tinyurl.com/btlnerx">http://tinyurl.com/btlnerx</a>

  • Geoff Mangum - created a new topic Putting Tempo and Rhythm in the forum.
    I have made a discovery that I think has never been noticed before in physics or golf: it is impossible to toss a pendulum back to the top of any backstroke size with any timing from start to stop at the backstroke top OTHER THAN the same timing the pendulum always has in swinging back down and thru to the other top.

    The timing of all and any pendulums is determined completely and only by the length of the pendulum. Any given length, held at the top at any height like a...

  • I recently created a method of using 2 putts on the practice green to establish for the golfer's personal delivery pace and the green speed how much the ball breaks for all slopes and all distances out to about 15 feet or so, in terms of either how many inches of break to play per foot of putt or what percentage of the putt length the break is.

  • I recently created a method to take two putts on the pre-round practice green to get a very close ballpark on nearly all breaks on all slopes inside 15 feet or so, and designed a 21-page pdf book on the subject with photos, drawings, and diagrams about how it all works. Anyone who wants this free pdf, just email me at geoff@puttingzone.com.
