Today we are joined on the Brain Booster by Dr David Moffat to explore some scientific studies surrounding great putting.

It will NOT be what you think!!

After a successful military and corporate career David attended university and learned how much scientific research there was on golf putting. He figured that all golfers should have access to the science that differs from the instructional literature leading coaches and tour players give us, which is often perceived as anecdotal.

So, on completion his putting related PhD he created with one intention - to become an online putting coach and provide the global golfing community with scientific & evidenced-based coaching.

David’s coaching philosophy is pragmatic which involves the use of a practical approach to understanding the putting environment with an emphasis on evaluating actions and beliefs based on their consequences.

We had the chance to discuss some great concepts with David as a result of his research.

It has been such a ‘fundamental’ to a lot of putting instruction.

Is it necessary for EVERYONE?

Sergio Garcia didn’t

He won the US Masters putting with his eyes closed

Could this be an option for you?

How can you establish YOUR own unique style of putting?

How we interfere with natural processes to block our putting ability

What could be a more effective way to practice your putting?
