I once thought about quitting the game because I would flinch at every 2 footer, every 3 footer and even the 1 footers were a dramatic experience. If you have anything close to this, then you need to consider your options, and a belly putter man not be legal in 2016. I agree that 2016 is a long way off, and the belly boys are saying they will not conform until right before they have to. So what are your options..?
Of course you all know I putt Side Saddle, and after the Wall Street Journal article I have had people all over the world ask me about this style of putting. MY ANSWER IS ALWAYS “this is not a quick fix, but over time a much better way to putt”I say this only because I am the only player in the world (that I know of) that has won over 100 amateur events, and has played in 5 Senior Majors putting this way. Forget about the performance, at any level if I had the yips with a short or longer putter, Side Saddle would be the way to go.
Putting is the key to playing good golf, you CANNOT score in this game unless you make putts, especially the short ones. So I have a decision to make, do I get into the Side Saddle putting business, develop a great putter and provide proper instruction to those that want to learn how to putt this way. I think the number one reason why more players do not try Side Saddle is they don’t want to be harassed by their friends about the crazy way they look while putting. This will last until you start filling up the bucket with putts made from everywhere, then they’ll all be asking you how they can get one of these putters.
So they question for you all is, would you ever switch to Side Saddle? it may happen where the first 50 people respond to this Blog that they want a FREE Side Saddle putter and instruction, then we’ll see where this goes. Those I’m discussing producing a putter with are passionate about seeing a paradigm shift in putting, and making Side Saddle an excepted and popular way to putt. Remember in Dave Peltz putting book, he writes that if e were to start a new player putting, he would have him putt Side Saddle to start.
2013 is upon us, this golf blog will try to give you some good information on the Side Saddle option and other short game techniques to improve you game. If this is good information, please share this with a friend and we’ll provide you all some good information on all these subjects going into 2013.
