You guys are over complicating the game…..

You F'coffee says:

When I was 14 my father made me a rather unconventional putter; basically he used a very heavy chunk of iron blank put some groves on one of the faces then bored a hole for a very short vertical wooden shaft with no angle, the putter was T shape. I bent over the shaft and hung my arms straight with my body being the pendulum, no wrist and no arm movement and oh boy how accurate I was with only one movement to consider.

O. G. says:

But the feel that BRAD FAXON is after is the backstroke should be longer and the follow thru shorter.


This is absolute bollocks. Sorry mate really like your long game videos. But when it comes to putting, you’re just far off. Only teaching what sam Puttlab observes with pros. But in my personal opinion you don’t have deeper understanding WHY things happen.

Scott ?????? says:

In the 60's and 70's, they tried to tell use that if you wanted to be good at golf, there is one swing. They told use you had to hold the club a certain way, take it back like this, you club had to be in this position at the end of your backswing. Then start your swing blah blah blah. And you need to finish with a reverse c. I learned a long time ago that golf swings are not made with a cookie cutter. What matters is what happens when you get about 6 inches before the ball and 6 inches past the ball. If the club is square for that one foot span, you are going to hit the ball at your target. You learn how to get power by a small forward press and great timing. Putting is no different. The most important thing is and inch before and past. If you want to putt well, try this. Draw a line on your ball all the way around. Move the ball up in your stance where you are coming up on the ball barely. That gives you top spin instead of back spin or no spin. Both can make the ball go of line within the first foot. Practice hitting the ball and that line goes over itself and you see it clear as it rolls. I teach putting and chipping to a lot of people. They ask me cause where I play I'm the best at it. I love 1 to 1 putting and chipping. I teach same speed back and forth, same distance back and forth. It promotes great rhythm. Once it becomes incorporated into your swing, you won't decelerate or take it back slow and come in fast. Practice the putts with the line on the ball, not putting at a hole, but rolling the ball on that line. When you do, putting with improve tremendously.

"Launch monitors" and cameras for putting? Geez …. I think I'll stick to watching what the ball does!
These over-the-top gimmicks are growing by the year. Not because they are beneficial, but simply because they can be made. Technology in golf had risen to a point of silliness with golf instructors now starting to look like vacuum cleaner salesman.
The ball is the best teacher and always will be.
The essence of this video can be distilled down to …. "make an accelerating putting stroke"; an age old maxim.

Stina Annerstedt says:

In your instruction series about putting, you teach equal length back and forth.
This video tells something else. Which one do you really recommend.
Please give an answer, thank you.

David Morgan says:

Have you found that the green speed changes this ratio? I find that slow greens encourage a longer backswing. Otherwise, my putts are consistently short with a short backswing. Can't generate enough power

dumb dumber says:

i just watched a putting video and the guy said keep the putter head moving at a constant speed lol…

roy cortez says:

This is just dumb

ivR bone says:

its 30-70% NOT 36-64% and if you don't believe me how about you believe someone like Tiger Woods who has talked about this SOOO many times. it all comes down to who do you want to believe ? this random guy on YouTube trying to make money by you watching his videos, or someone like Tiger Woods who has won alot of PGA tournaments.

Brea Jones says:

Everything I’ve heard from putting professionals implies the 1 to 2 ratio is wrong. The ratio you should actually look for is 1.5 to 1. A shorter through swing gives you better acceleration, not a longer through swing. And the shorter through swing keeps your stroke consistent.

If your stroke going significantly further than your backswing you might end up pushing or pull your stroke. This could creep in to where you hit the ball, causing you to consistently push or pull your putts.

Russell David Oakley says:

Never decelerate. Don't take the club to far back so you will always accelerate through.

matthew brown says:

Very good..

Kim Larsen says:

He cut the last put hustler

John Ambrose says:

Without using a gravity fed pendulum motion, there is no way that you are "stroking" the ball. Using muscle input to accelerate
the club head into the ball is a hit not a stroke. that being said, using muscle input to determine distance control is easily influenced with Adrenalin which opens up an all new issue under pressure.

Corek BleedingHollow says:

Pros are way better because they have easy access to very consistent and well kept golf courses and greens. Amateurs are bad because all the public courses are absolute shit. Especially when it comes to greens. Why can't they make synthetic material greens the same greens as the Pros putt on?

brian menendez says:

and gary player said he used to have almost no follow through

eddiebro101 says:

If you accelerate while putting, then your ability to control exacting distances diminishes. If you change your acceleration from one stroke to another, you will NEVER have true consistency. I actually pause slightly at the back of a putt. Putting is perhaps the best aspect of my game (2 handicap). Control is derived by how fast the take-a-way is, and MATCHING that during the through-swing. What that does is it means I am not popping at the ball. Let us say I am faced with a 12-foot putt. Well, the speeds of greens change EVERYDAY, because of growth and mowing, wetness, and wind speeds. When I warm up, I can find a level area on the practice green, and I can test the speeds of the greens. On days where the greens are smoking fast, I may find that I need a small take-a-way say 3 inches to travel 12 feet. On other days the speeds are slow, and I need an 8-inch take-a-way to travel that same 12 feet. But if I pop at the ball like you are advocating, I have no real idea what distance I need to pull the club back because if my acceleration is 3 or 4 MPH differently I will always get differing results for the exact same take-a-way. I cannot judge distances accurately by doing what you suggest. Believe me, I have tried millions of times. How do you know how fast your acceleration is actually building up to? You don't, you guess ( you call it feel). Because when you pop at the ball, a 4-inch take-a-way can send the ball forty feet or 4 feet depending on how much acceleration is being delivered to the ball, coupled to the speeds of the surface. How many rank beginners pop at the ball and send it racing 20 feet past the cup? Some players have a distinct pause at the top of their full swing. It gives them a reliable point to transition from (Hideki Matsuyama). Through decades of attempts, I have found that the same is actually true while putting. It gives the player a way to control distances more accurately, without having to rely on your type of guesswork. I play on greens that have an 11 stimp most often. That doesn't mean it is always an 11 stimp though. When I warm up, I am finding the true starting speeds of the surface… FOR THAT DAY. On dry or windy days, the speeds may increase during play, but I have a starting point from which to start from and by paying attention to results during play can actually see if they are speeding up, and I can adjust. No guessing at all. If I take the putter back 4 inches, pause, and then move the club head to 4 inches in front of the contact point, I get a distance for a 4" take-a-way. On fast days that maybe 8-feet or more distance results. Facing a 6-foot putt? Simply use less take-a-way, of course, but don't try to figure out how to change acceleration. You'll be all over the map if you do. If I do a 6-inch take-a-way, I get a defined result. If I use an 8-inch take-a-way, once more I get a defined distance. Taking that knowledge onto the course gives me the distances of a take-a-way for the distances I face. Uphill? Add an inch or two. Severely uphill, add even more take-a-way. But there is no need for popping at the ball. Simply enlarge the movement, just like you do out on the course. Not all swings are full swings. Downhill putts, use less take-a-way. If I pop at the ball like you suggest, I have no real idea how far the ball is going to run-out. It is then just guessing. Bad advice, buddy. The hardest part of learning how to putt really well is stopping yourself from trying to power the shot like you would with your irons or woods. I have seen people who can play from tee to green extremely well, who suck, simply because they try to bring the acceleration aspect of the full swing, onto the putting greens. They send the ball either way too far past the cup, or they deaccelerate to compensate and come up short. They 3 putt a lot of greens for this one reason. They don't know how fast the ball is starting at, because they have to guess how much acceleration they are creating each and every putt. Back in the 1960's when greens were 7-9 stimp, that type of technique worked. Look at the films of Palmer and Player when they were wining. They popped at the ball. But when you do, look at the greens they played on and how slow those greens were. In fact, if you compare their performances through the years you will see that as the greens started to get faster and faster, over time their ability to win dropped substantially. Try that on a green complex that is set at 12 or 13 nowadays and see how well that works for the long haul… it doesn't. It creates 3 putts more than not.

Zulfiqar Ali Kango says:

Best video I have ever seen on putting. The way concept is conveyed is excellent. As a result I have consistent putts now. I have 90% success with 7-10 footers. Anything under 7 foot is 100%. My pre stroke confidence is skyrocketing. I am in full control of my putts now. Thank you for such a great lesson.

Sodthong says:

I got bored after 3 minutes …

Play2Win1958 says:

My golf coach told me one third back two thirds forward

bobky11 says:

Thanks for your videos. They are great. When ball placement is farther back on skirt when putting, should I use more of a snap in my contact or smooth back and forth to clear grass?

Sean M says:

Jordan Spieth decelerates to perfection.

DawnOfDoom12 says:

Thanks for this amazing piece of advice! Contacts got solid aftter I did this down-to-up. I am not used to consistently solid putts so I did overhit it a couple of times, but I saved so many pars with just my putting thereafter. Thanks again, buddy!
