Do you feel the weight of the putter better with one hand more dominate on the grip. I noticed with one handed putting strokes the weight of the putter head is more apparent. I am puting that left hand over the dominant right hand very lightly. It seems like I can feel the weight better especially in the takeaway. Feels like the left is just along for ride. Is this garbage or does it have merit? dunno 🙂

Hey Shawn – I have started down your putting road by changing my grip – I have done left-hand low for a long time and I interlock my grip as I do with the full swing. What I did was to do a double interlock and that has restricted my ability to manipulate the putter during the stroke – forcing me to give the putter over to gravity.

The ramifications of that are learning distance control – not all that hard surprisingly, but it is also pointing out to me that I did a lot of face manipulation during the stroke when I felt like things were not quite right. Now I just have to trust it. The thing that got me tonight (in round 1) was the fine speed control. I had a few putts that ran out of gas and just missed and I left one short.

I am sure you are going to say to give it time, but are there any specific things I should be doing to make sure I stay on track and get this new technique down? I have quite a few putters and it seems that a larger grip is better suited to this technique ( I have an Edel E1 putter with a Pure grip that is a constant cross-section – it seems to relax my hands). I tend to change putters a lot – I assume this is a big no? Just stick with one, or can I change from time to time when I feel like benching a putter. Sorry for the bombardment of questions. I am intrigued by the results from trying this.

Wow – answering my own question 🙂 I was watching the Putting – Stroke & Distance Control video again and there was something in there that really helped with my accuracy. It was gripping the club more tightly so my “Y” can move from the shoulders – that feels WAY more stable than the weaker grip I used tonight. It is amazing to putt and have no hand manipulations going on 🙂

For me the grip size is big – I can not seem to get a good grip on the club with a thinner grip. It can be a pistol or tapered but has to be a larger cross section. – thanks again Shawn, you have helped my game immensely.

Shawn – I have been trying to settle in my putting rhythm (and brain) to timing to stroke with my breathing… inhale (take the putter back)…. let it go with the momentum… exhale. Does this make sense?

It’s great, one suspects, to forget about the bad shot that just happened. But if we completely erase the memory, are we disrupting the feedback loop?

Shawn, what is your opinion of using a line on the ball, to aim your putts. Ron

Michael Vinton

Hey Shawn. Really good teaching. I practice 20 minute meditation sessions for awareness twice a day and its amazing. I knew that this practice changes our attitudes in daily living. But I never considered adapting this to golf. Thank you for your suggestions. You are correct when you say open-mindedness is the key to success. The best to you!

What is your vision for short putts? I am a 3.9 index , but, I feel That I miss too many of these. I am probably in a manipulative state trying to make sure

Shawn, this is a great video – and one I would love to share. Is there any place that you can post it so that I can forward to non-subscribers ? (I think it may lead to more new subs…)

jakerosnerbp@aim.com

Perfect, thanks!

Sam DeDominicis

My favorite part about leaving the pin in is that I can “hear” my putt hitting the pin when setting my alignment after using goldilocks. Give it a try and tune your ears in to help with that alignment and pace!

Rob Sillito

Game changer. Great first video and comments already- keep it coming!

Hey Shawn have you had a chance to look at/try out the Tour Striker Planemate that seems like it will be the new big thing in 2020? I’m hoping this would be the type of training aid that fits in well with our task focussed training and playing!

taylor310@gmail.com

Thanks for the reply! I got excited seeing so many people raving about it, but in the back of my mind I kind of knew it went against your teaching and what you’re trying to accomplish. Was hoping this thing would get me in the “perfect positions” naturally without thinking about them while still keeping a task focussed approach.😂

IBOW2@chartermi.net

Shawn, looks like a nice new series coming out! I have one question (blanket type) What is different between this type of focused train and the so called “block” training where we are trying to develop a repeatable flow state on the driving range?

Jeremy Moody

Great stuff Shawn. I must admit in the fall sessions at RHGC when I’m hitting into a net, the flight plan, kinetic chain and flow seem easier to get to. With the GC Quad now the bees buzz around . Too much heel contact, ball fading too much, spin too high etc. I struggle to get back to the
golf “ box breathing”. On the course, well there is the lie, that bunker, the pond, the trees on the left, out of bounds blah blah blah. My solution is to try to get back to the basics of appropriate grip, stance, flight picture that matches the shot required and then releasing the acu over my intermediate point. As you know, control is a problem for me. Trying to keep it means losing it.
Comments? Thanks. To bad we are all indoors now.

Hi Shawn
As you know, this is something that, in theory, could benefit me greatly.

However, I think that the suggestion of telling oneself “to cut grass” is at odds with achieving a flow state. It is still task focused, just a different task from hitting the ball. In the psychological study (throwing darts) that you reference, there is no equivalent concept in the mind of the more successful group.

So, instead, I think we need drills that enable us to get the right ‘action’ for the swing (throwing the club is probably a good one, but it’s quite hard to implement safely and with sufficient repetition) such that we can embed that feeling in our unconscious mind. This, I suspect, requires massive amounts of repetition without the involvement of a golf ball (but some studies exploring how much is required would be very interesting). Equally, other drills that help us identify when we are co-ordinating our kinetic chain properly (and, importantly, when we’re not), would be helpful – ideally that we can use as rehearsal swings.

I think Jon R is making a similar point about some of your drills that contribute better to flow state.

But I do think it would be helpful for you to take a step back from some of the concepts that you use to help people (e.g. cutting grass) when the topic is flow-state, because in my view they are not compatible.

Merci Shawn,
C’est la suite naturelle et brillante de tout ton enseignement. Pour ma part ma pensée oscille en tout temps entre la zone ”cible” et la zone de pensée ”partie du corps” que je veux contrôler. En écoutant ta vidéo j’ai réalisé que je pourrais:
– pouvoir focuser sur la cible
-voir les résultats sans peur ou jugement
-puis faire confiance à mon cerveau (habiletés naturelles) pour faire l’ajustement lors du prochain coup.

C’est simple, en harmonie avec mes objectifs. Je me sens bien à penser de cette façon, c’est la preuve dans la poudding! Sérieusement.

Jon R

Most of your system is already built around various methods to achieve a flow state. For example, the perpetual swing and Goldilocks are great at replacing the manipulative state with an athletic move. Looking forward to this series.
