They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Well I guess I am flattering Dave by putting this link to his article in my blog and in his article he flattered the late Ernest Jones.
Ernest Jones for those of you who do not know is revered by many Golf Professionals as the God Father of Modern Golf Instruction. In 1937, in his book Swinging Into Golf, Jones introduced the example that if you wrote your name without conciously thinking about it too much in a nice, easy, free flowing manner, your signature would look better and the process would be smoother than if you tried copying your name on to paper from a signature that you had previously written. Dave mentions this almost verbatim in the 5th point of his article.
The bottom line is, even though I believe that Dave got some of his material from a 73 year old book (that may be the finest golf book ever written), this information original and otherwise is still very much valid today. I think that your mental approach and physical/overall putting will be better after reading this article.
Dave's topics of discussion in this article are:
1. Get A Better Read
2. Get A Routine
3. See The Line
4. Stroke, Don't Hit
5. Don't Try To Make It ... you have to read the article for this statement to make sense.
