Wah, thanks for reminding me, now I don't feel so jealous of the long hitters. Very Happy

It's the only hole short enough for me to get two on, that's where I got the only eagle ever in my life. Damn tricky green to putt though.

wah really ah? 1 eagle in your life?
damn tricky green i agree.

THE only one ever.

Still remember the putt.... a two tiered three metres uphill breaking right, ball stopped at the lip before a final shudder, falling in the left side of the cup. I jumped up in the air like Phil Mickelson when the ball dropped in. : D

Lucky!!!

why mine just can't drop in just like the others???????

You need to change your nick to Birdie la... Like Birdman... pale

from corn to 1on

If that's the case, I think I better change my nick to "Hole-In-1"

my coach once told me that when you putt, have the mentality of oneshot at a time. I.e. if it putts, it putts, if it doesn't, putt another time. I guess I didn't follow his advice.

Most definitely, see how his last post say he can't stop laughing.

His mind is off the missed you-know-what.

Got new nick in the process too. Very Happy

Making a golf ball go exactly 2 1/2 feet straight is NOT easy. More so with a blade putter, which gives great touch, but is very prone to pull or push.

Back to the putting... not sure if it's a good idea to play just firm putts to take out the break.

Personally, I prefer to move the hole further back or forwards depending on whether it's a downhiller or uphiller.

Down hill - move the hole towards me and let gravity take the ball the rest of the way.

Up hill - move the hole further away from me, that little extra oomph will take care of the rest.

How much depends on how severe the slope is.

I find this form of visualisation works better than telling myself to hit it firm or lag it. If I tell myself to hit it firm, I may end up rapping the putt; and by telling myself to lag, I may quit and not finish my stroke.

This way, I end up making (hopefully) the same smooth stroke with a consistent follow through whether it's up hill or down hill with no fear. And fear is really what kills the putting.

couldn't agree more... that's y i was told to develop a shorter back swing to have higher chance of hitting the sweet spot on the downswing. With this method, i find my putts have straightened quite a lot.

The reason i missed the eagle putt was because i hit it too soft and the ball lost momentum at the break.

oh.. it's not a severe break... just a slight break, which i thought hit it with the right amount of force to let the ball falls into the hole. but once i hit it, i knew i hadn't knock it hard enough.

so now i know if i encounter such situation again, i'll hit it straight, hard enough to reach the back of the hole. that way, the small break will not affect the ball path. i just hope i will have another chance like this again.

For me, I think of just one foot, whatever the distance.

By this, I mean the six inches before and after the ball, I see a one foot line with the ball sitting in the centre. And that line is all I try to focus on when I want the ball to start on line to my target, be it a spot or the cup. Of course I must have gotten the right strength to putt it from my practice stroke already.

Then I try to focus on starting the putter head straight back along that six inch line and through the same line for six inches after impact.

The added benefit is that since I'm fixated on the six inches before and after the ball, I won't have the tendency to raise my head and peek at the hole.

For this technique, the master is Asahi. Take lessons from him to see how he takes the break out of every putt to bang it into the cup on every hole.

According to the rocket scientist who studied the game, Dave Pelz:

You must find a way to roll putts 17 inches past the hole (when they miss). Research proves that putts have a greater chance of finding the cup (regardless of putt length) when the ball rolls at this speed.

http://www.golf.com/golf/instruction/article/0,28136,1565311,00.html

According to my friend (not a rocket scientist), "if the ball does not reach the cup, no matter the line taken, the ball won't go in." (Makes good obvious sense in an unrocket-scientist sort of way.)

"If nothing else, if the ball goes past the hole, you have a read on the line to take coming back."

Now that was something useful, I thought.

So, combining the two, make sure it can go past, 17 inches. If the hole catches it, it will drop.

Aiming it 17 inches past the hole takes away the line-killing and speed-killing deceleration caused by last-minute doubt.

The first time I executed this technique, it drew an unexpected response from my caddie which floored me.

She said, "Kasi rogol itu lubang! ('R_pe' the hole!)

If you lip out, they will say, "Abang suka jilat ya?" [Koko, you like to lick is it?]

Sometimes when I play poorly, these comments will cheer me right up as everybody bursts out laughing.
