With the average 20-handicap golfer typically needing about 36 putts per 18-hole round, it makes sense that most golfers are looking for any advantage they can find when using the flat stick. Improving your ability to read greens more accurately is one way to chip away at unwanted putts and one of the top putting coaches in the world is ready to help.
Geoff Mangum, a leading putting coach with over twenty years of experience working with amateurs and professionals on all tours, recently announced the release of his FREE 45-page ebook entitled “Slopes and Break”. Mr. Mangum’s new book details how to use one simple putt on the practice green before a round in order to test standard breaks on that course’s greens. His simple method uses real physics and greens science combined with the personal putting pace used by any specific golfer to make more putts.
“This method for learning break overcomes the flaws in green reading systems used by others who simply take a physics formula, assume some supposed “optimal” putting pace in general for all golfers, and then calculate breaks that don’t fit any specific golfer’s personal putting pace, and give breaks that are wrong for that golfer” said Geoff Mangum. “These calculated breaks also require golfers to use electronic gadgets on the course before playing the real round to measure green speeds, fall lines, and slopes in order to look up the breaks in calculation tables or charts, but never teach the golfer how to have skill to perceive these parameters independently as golfers are required to do when they play real golf. The PuttingZone teaches perception processes for putting reading and aiming, and the eBook covers these perceptual skills and methods.”
Mr. Mangum combines traditional putting techniques with modern neuroscience for human perception and movement in putting’s four skills as an integrated system: reading, aiming, stroking, and controlling distance. The result is a permanent and dramatic increase in putting competence and the added confidence that comes with real skill. His teaching has benefited PGA Tour players and launched amateurs into the top of the world amateur ranking and to victory in the British Amateur and the US Amateur Championships.
