The Reality of Putting
  • I believe Frank is correct, tempo stays the same. What I've found while working with a metronome is that on longer putts you have to speed up the backswing to produce a longer stroke, this way you can match the tempo of of smaller slower stroke for shorter putts. Perhaps this relates to what Frank is saying about using muscle power to take the club away, and then letting it fall. Using a metronome you can try different tempos until you find one that works for you on all length putts.

  • 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'm a 28 handicap golfer in the UK who generally putts 3-4 times on each hole with the occasional 2 putt.
    I watched TRoP a couple of weeks back and have been practicing in my office once per week on average when time allows.

    Yesterday I went out for my first round of golf in 2 months and I 2-putted every single hole. This DVD is a God-send! Great work Geoff and Elk!
