Justin Rose thinks better

Here’s an interesting article for those that are in the market for a better putting game.

While it may be possible (I don’t really think it works long term) to go all technical, change putters and fiddle about on the greens etc, Justin Rose offers a simpler alternative. This quote sums things up nicely,

“You can have the perfect stroke, but you’re not necessarily going to make putts,” Rose said. “It enables me to focus on the art form of putting and not obsess too much about the technique.”

Rose has learned to automate his putting so he doesn’t need to stress and worry about things so much. And it’s no surprise he’s putting better. The path for us “regular” golfers is to get comfortable over the putts and then putt freely. It sounds easy, but there’s really not much more you can do. The hard part is trusting in the process for the long haul. Most golfers let a miss or two derail them and then all the BS starts again.

I think Rose has now gotten past the crap stage with his putting (because he is trusting the automatic process) and can now become a truly dominant player. If you’re keen to see my updated thoughts on mastering the putting game then check out this book.

One more thing: The claw grip doesn’t really have anything to do with his success here. While it certainly may have helped him reach a level of automatic, it’s not the real reason. Learning to simplify his thoughts and staying true is the golden ticket. A golfer could almost stand on one leg and putt with one arm and become a very very good putter with the right mindset. The technique is only part of the equation. A small part.

    A large percentage of of whatever you say happens to be supprisingly precise and that makes me wonder why I had not looked at this in this light before. This piece really did switch the light on for me as far as this particular issue goes. But at this time there is just one factor I am not really too comfortable with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of the issue, let me observe what the rest of the subscribers have to say. Nicely done. Aggy Newton Max

    Thanks for your helpful post. Through the years, I have been able to understand that the actual symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by this build up of fluid regarding the lining in the lung and the chest cavity. The infection may start from the chest area and spread to other areas of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include weight reduction, severe breathing in trouble, temperature, difficulty swallowing, and bloating of the neck and face areas. It must be noted that some people with the disease usually do not experience just about any serious signs or symptoms at all. Cristen Falkner Schulz
