Putting is nearly half of all strokes every round and the putter is used 2-3 times more often than the driver or the wedge. And putting has FOUR skills, not just the stroke as usually taught, and these four skills must be integrated with instinctive touch and stroke timing -- Read, Aim, Stroke, and Touch. Historically, however, golf instruction scarcely concerns itself with putting, and most of the skills for putting have not been understood in terms of how body perceptions and movements cause good or bad performance. A comprehensive survey of golf instruction from 1880 to today reveals only one obscure, privately printed book on how to read putts, and no significant effort to comprehend and teach how touch or aiming actually work in the human brain and body.

Golf instruction is still 95% full-swing only, and the 5% for putting is vague, inconsistent, repetitive, and almost entirely based in pseudo-science of alien expertise ill-applied to putting skills by dilettante enthusiasts without teaching knowledge of the skills, with imagined notions of what helps when science actually proves the claimed benefits are ill-founded and illusory. Numbers and computers and Latinate terminology always impress golfers as scientific, but in golf these claims of science are usually devoid of real science or vastly overblown and in fact not soundly applied to the real skills of the human body in the act of performing putting skills.

Sadly, the current legion of "putting experts" includes: "optometrists", "putter designers", "physicists", "surgeons", "technologists", "fitness trainers," "golf psychs", "caddies", "club reps", "club repair guys", "failed players", "swing gurus", "motor sports academics", and "training aid makers". In general, hardly with any significant exceptions, none of these well-intentioned people have the slightest idea about the skills of putting or how to teach good skills, but instead select one or two aspects of putting and rush headlong into golf as the newest "putting expert" where angels fear to tread. If the person is not seriously involved in teaching all four skills in an integrated manner, he is not a "putting instructor" at all, and the small parts of putting taught in isolation are likely to be unsound and harmful to the overall skills and to longterm performance improvement, even if the player experiences a temporary "honeymoon" benefit.

Finding most of the problems of the skills of putting not addressed in golf history, the PuttingZone for the past 20 years has been researching, studying, and developing solutions -- problem-solving the problems left unsolved. In the PuttingZone, you will find the most comprehensive and lethally effective putting techniques in golf history -- combining the best from golf since the 1800s with advanced physics, anatomy, biomechanics, motor science, and especially the NEW neuroscience of perceptual and movement processes in the brain and body for instinctive reading, aiming, stroking and controlling distance and pace.

A FREE 45-page PDF on reading putts by reading the slope grade and then knowing the percentage of the putt length to use to aim above the hole -- not perfect, but simple, direct, useful!

If you want to play to your highest potential, you really have no choice but to learn how putting works. Get into the PuttingZone and work on your SKILLS. You'll find a very warm welcome awaits and lots of improvement in playing and enjoying the great game of golf. You're either in the PuttingZone, or not.
