Default Putting slumps


I think sometimes we get too caught up on where to aim, poping our fingers at just right the moment, trying to keep our throwing arm on plane and shifting our weight at exactly the right moment.

Everyone has an idea of what they want their putt to look like and sometimes we just get too caught up in the mechanics of everything.

My suggestion: Take all your change and put it in your left pocket, turn your hat backwards, surround yourself with white discs and then look at that basket and tell yourself that your going to put this disc into that basket. I bet you'll make it.

Everyone has to find their own putt, not copy Wysocki, or Schusterick, or Feldberg, hopefully not Ville Pippo (no offense, great player). The putt that you feel comfortable with should be the one that you practice, wether it's a spin putt, a high lofting push or a spush. The goal is to put the disc in your hand into the basket and no two people do it the same.

I walked past a group of GM's last year who were trash talking me because they knew I would be 50 this year. One said he wasn't worried because I was eventually going to lose my putt(think F'berg/Uli). I had a backup plan, I learn something new. I've putted with magnets since 96 but I just stuck a focus in my bag and lately it's been magical.
