Author Talking Points (useful for interviews)

Background: I been a golfer most of my life and putting has always been an issue. I later worked on some putting training aids where I learned more about putting. As I played on some leagues and tournaments, I noticed people spending more time of driving rather than putting. I figured, since putting is 50% of the game, there needs to be a way to help golfers do a better job putting. I came up with the No 3 Putts concept and interviewed top rated instructors and club fitters to share their key knowledge and experiences.

  1. The 3 putt is the worst thing on the course except for a whiff. It shows you a complete breakdown of any ability or skill. When I share the title every golfer can relate.
  2. The book has numerous interviews with top rated instructors on what you need to know and the best practices for putting. Much like a travel guide, it quickly shows you what to do to make the most of your time for the best results.
  3. Putting is 50% of the game, yet golfers take it for granted and do not practice putting. They would rather spend time on the driving range, but driving is only about 12% of the game.
  4. A surprising fact from Mark Sweeney, CEO of Aimpoint Golf is only 2%
  5. Andy Thompson, a top club fitter, states over 90% of golfers cannot line the ball up with the cup from 6’ away
  6. Even on tour, you will see 3 putts and even pros have been known to throw and break clubs.
  7. One problem is golfers see pros making putt after putt in a tournament, yet this is not reality and golfers set their expectations too high, especially if they don’t practice.
  8. To improve, golfers need to understand what type of putter they are, get laser tested for your basic ability and get fitted for a putter that matches your style and posture AND develop a practice routine.
  9. The interviews in No 3 Putts are as if you had a lesson from each of the interviewees. So you get 10 lessons for a mere $20 that would cost the reader nearly $2,000 had they hired each professional to give them a personal lesson. A must read for all golfers.
