PostSubject: A Valuable session with Mr. Nick Middleton-Putting   Fri Nov 12, 2010 10:54 am

Dear golfers, last evening I was lucky to have a half hour session with the Guru, but he insist he is not, but just a guy that can open up new dimension to individual thoughts in putting process to the whole putting equation which we don't know we actually have that mental and skill to achieved! Its Amazing how he uses and analyst the data( to a hundreds of a second to our putting stroke).

I am a pretty decent putterer with strong fundamentals , but after the session I feel that I have a new enhanced/upgraded micro chip implant in between my ear now, which will make me much better!

There are more to it than i just describe, so do get upgraded between our ears, before MR. Nick Middleton leave(mid next week) but if u cannot make it don't be despair, our own DGman also process that prowess.(KNS, he kept it a secret from me actually)

After more than 30 years! only now I have the key to unlock it !

This video of the Break30 System is absolutely remarkable. To see your putter
path and how it strikes the ball and the contact points is a real eye opener.

http://www.break30.com/

That young lady last night at the HOZ, who used the Break30 system AND received a
1 on 1 personal putting session with Nick was simply in Seventh Heaven!

When I mentioned to her that she had been on that system for over 1.5 hours she couldn't believe it.

She told me the entire time went by in a flash. She never noticed the time because she was in such deep concentration and learned SO MUCH from Nick and Break30 feedback
and analysis.

The result she said was almost indescribable............. except she said she now knows what stroke to learn & grove and even sank more putts last night than ever before.

Proof in the Pudding:..............She bought a ZEN Putter after the "lesson"
and Nick even signed her Headcover!

She's HAPPY!!

Cheers, KT

Thought I'd like to share what happened today.

Went to BFG early to drop my tm irons which are on sale on market place (pls check them out, tks! Smile ). I was loitering around the place, rolling balls when Nick and his wife came. We traded pleasantries (met him at the party before, very, very nice man). DGman then arrived and suddenly talked to Nick about my situation.

My situation: my putting sucks! Especially on short putts, especially when there's something on the line. I would miss gimme putts. Switching to Zen Zam, along with DGman's tips have improved my putting to a decent avg (abt 36 a round). But I always crumble in pressure moments, so much so that I've recently decided to putt left handed.

Nick thought about my story and asked me to the lab and said he only had 5 mins. He looked at my stroke and interestingly, was more interested in what's happening between my ears than my stroke mechanics. Several Q&A/drills later, I found myself hitting that really, really small target circle on the lab's floor, with one hand, with my eyes closed or open. Wow! Shocked Even Nick was impressed kekekekeke. He basically recreated a new putting movement/stroke by just "messing" with with my mind.

So....i realized that I just had a pro-level putting lessons, from a guru sought-after by pros themselves. Nick actually spent 30 mins with me. Talk about being lucky!

This doesnt mean I can suddenly putt like Asahi or for you (yes, you: blee, ZH, duval, mloy) to start asking for strokes Razz . Hope I can make that hand-eye coordination permanent, like I had done in optimum circumstances (i.e. with a putting guru watching over me).

I thank DGman for letting me spend some time with Nick! Much appreciated. You are santa

Now, can anyone buy my irons? My backside super itchy lor Laughing

Great story, bro. That deserves at least one stroke from you! Smile

Seriously, I agree that a lot of what goes wrong (or right) with putting stems from what happens between the ears. Putting is about confidence and our minds get messed up especially for those short putts. This is where the focus of the game ends up being, and where money and pride are won or lost. The pressure is immense and our thoughts buckle under the pressure.

Fixing the shortest distance (i.e. the space between both ears) goes a long way to fixing the putts.

Don't get me wrong - my mind's all messed up. I can relate to the story but find it hard to fix what I'm highlighting.

Nonetheless, I'll be taking at least 1 stroke from you thanks to your brush with putting genius Wink

Panji, great to hear of your fruitful session with Nick.
In essence, I do believe he roughly covered the same Zen teachings that DGman told me before, months ago before I got the ZAM putter.

You got to trust your putting stroke when you putt. It is all in the mind, well mostly.
I went thru the same drills as you i.e putting with eyes closed etc and learned a great deal about my own style if putting. Thereafter, the rest is history, managing 32-34 putts per round after those sessions.

As for short putts, may I recommend the ZIM model? I find this model especially spot on for putts within 6 feet.
Think I really may be carrying out my game plan of bringing two putters to the greens!
Hope to bring down my putting to 29-32 soon.

BTW, I have experienced Capt. with his new micro-chip. Damn flipping scary. With his already deadly short game? I was like a sitting duck with no cover.
