Lost my feel for putting over the last few months of last year. even had problems with 3 footers.

Was starting to blame everything under the sun except myself. Until I forced myself to "relearn" my putting again from scratch with my instructor and keeping it simple. and also practice and practice and practice.

3 footers!!! Suspect
Bro Winston, better re-set yr avatar liao! lol!

Heres my low down on Zen

Firstly, its not a miracle putter fallen from heaven.

Work has to be done WITH it. When u have a appt with the Zen-meister Eric. He will spend about an hour with you on how you putt, what is your master arm and master eye. And through the process he will give you drills and calmimg techniques for you to practise. Also, he will fit the putter according to your height and putting stance.

For me the putter only worked after I worked on the drills Eric asked me to do, and correctly employing the calmimg techniques. I had probs with it initially as all my balls tend to roll too much. Had to go back to re-adjust my putter a few times as well.

Its only after about 6 weeks that the putter begin to work for me. And after 1 year and 2 months, i havent looked back since.

Can lay testament to that with the putt in from the apron ~ 25 feet away.

So you giving me 3 - 4 the next time we play?? (just to hustle & detract a bit)

bro winston,
had those moments too where everything seems wrong. what i do normally is, take my mind off golf for a few days, meaning no practicing, no watching, no talking and of course no playing of golf. it will somehow reset my mind from the mistakes and go back to basics again when i play or practice. sort of a mental block i suppose

You reckon it has anything to do with your setup ~ this issue is often my concern for the first 3 ~ 5 holes in a round. Getting out of bed on the wrong side in the morning, putting on your shoes on the wrong side 1st

ROFL

how about choosing the wrong outfit for the day bro vinny? ROFL

Hotter weather = more ball roll OR is it the women that's "hot-ing" up the ambiance.......

Vinny,

Ball rolling better. strating to putt with a flater left wrist than compared to last time. HAve been sticking to it for 3 months. Finally beared results. After 2.5 yrs of playing golf, finally had not 1 but 2 birdies....also as the new year celebrations are slowing down and people are getting back to work, "things" are getting hotter here.....

Hey,

That's a good possibility as well ~ shirt too tight restricting shoulder turn, golf shorts too tight for correct partitioning comfort, not the correct shade of RED on a Sunday........

lol!

had a putting nightmare yesterday. out of 18 holes, i had my ball roll around the cup before coming out and resting at the side of the hole in 7 of the hole. 1 was for a birdie, 4 was for par and 2 was for bogey and they were all from 6-8 feet range. really affected my overall game. has anyone ever had this experience before and dont mind sharing whether it affects your game at all?

thanks

Bro,

you should learn to let go.

There are days when things don't worked.

You must let go of these bad memories and mentally say...

"ERASE...ERASE....ERASE"

and mentally affirm and say...

I am a good Golfer & Putter!!!
