My journey to better putting | A guide to better putting

My journey to better putting

After being a mid to high 70s golfers for a decade now, I finally realized yesterday just how poor my putting is. By poor, I mean fucking awful. Putting has always held my game back as long as I can remember. I am an incredible ball striker and hit the ball long and hit a lot of greens in regulation. However, I’ve still only carded a handful of rounds under par and I know my putting is the reason. My journey to better putting is my guide and story of finally fixing my atrocious putting and hopefully helping our readers do the same.

Step 1: Recognize the Problem

This seems simple and easy but its the first step for a lot of processes for a reason, in order to make massive change you need to recognize your problem. Mine, and most likely yours, is that we are awful fucking putters. It makes the game way harder than it needs to be and puts a ton of pressure on every other part of your game.

Step 2: Set your intentions

We talk about this a lot, and for good reason. Setting your goal or intention is claiming your stake. This is where I am going. For me, right now I average 34 putts a round. Fucking awful, I know. I want to save 6 shots a round in my putting (avg. 28). This is a seriously huge goal and for some people unrealistic. Why set a realistic goal? The reason you set a goal is to achieve massive growth in the pursuit of it. Saving my self 6 shots a round is going to take some serious action and effort and I’m going to have to learn some new things. Which will allow me to help all of you do the same!

Step 3: Develop a good practice routine at home

Fixing my putting is going to take a serious time investment and some putting training aids. I will have to purchase a new putting green to use at home, along with some training aids to help my stroke. The one I have been “eyeing” is the Edge Rail by EyeLine Golf. I actually have one of these on the way to my house now so I will let you know how I like it. It’s one of the only tools that will help with creating a consistent putting stroke with a perfect arc, every time.

Step 4: Make more birdies

The end goal of all of this is to make more birdies. At the end of the day My journey to better putting is really about lowering scores in any way possible and for me right now, the easiest room for improvement is putting. I have had some pretty good years putting wise so I know I can make it back there and become an even better putter than I was in the past.

Step 5: Follow My Journey to better putting

My journey to better putting is intended to improve my putting, but most importantly improve our readers putting. I will hopefully lay the ground work and the process for someone to follow so they can improve everything about their putting and lower their scores. Over the coming months stay tuned for updates on my progress, what is helping, what isn’t helping and the best products to help you achieve your putting goals.

Golf Fitness Programs and why you should start one today

Golf fitness programs and why you should start one today

In this edition of the GolfAnytime blog we will discuss Golf Fitness programs and why this is a crucial piece to improving your golf game. Golf fitness and golf workouts should be very different than a normal workout routine and in some cases much more beneficial than a normal workout routine.

I don’t know about you but I know a lot of people that workout to build strength and muscle mass, but if you were to ask them about flexibility, longevity, and movement you would hear crickets. Why is that? My quick answer is because people often don’t think about the consequences, especially 10 or 20 years down the road. Is weight lifting and running helping your golf game? Of course not, while they do help you get into get physical condition a good golf workout program focuses on a completely different objective, Movement.

Movement is the #1 thing holding most golfers back from reaching their true potential and playing this game we love for decades. Most golfers simply can’t swing properly because they are not in good enough physical shape. Golf can be very taxing on the body but in most of these cases it’s simply the body making incorrect compensations due to the golfer not being in good enough physical form. How do we fix this? Easy, check out the Best Golf Workouts 2020 as we will highlight what areas to target and give you some simple workouts you can do in the comfort of your own home.

Why should I start a Golf Fitness Program

There are some HUGE benefits to doing a golf fitness program, just to name a few.

  • Hit the ball longer
  • Higher club head and ball speed
  • Less trouble hitting out of bunkers and thick rough
  • Lower percentage of injuries
  • Play the game longer
  • Make efficient golf swings without swinging too hard
  • Better physical shape
  • Lower your scores

These are just a few of the benefits you will notice when you consistently workout targeting the right areas of your body. We all want to hit the ball longer, how do we do it? I’ll give you a hint, it’s not spending $500 on the latest driver that guarantees 10 more yards. Drivers have been maxed out for distance years ago, if they went any farther they’d be illegal. It’s not swinging harder, in fact in most cases swinging harder actually lowers club head speed and ball speed because of poor swing efficiency and mishits.

Most important areas to target for Golf Workouts

The Core

I’m sure most of you know this already but you Core is without a doubt the most important area to target when it comes to golf fitness programs. Anyway with good swing efficiency and club head speed will tell you that it comes from your core. What workouts target this area? Squats, squat jumps, and anything rotational from the hips up. Also anything that targets abs as well. The best way to do this in regards to golf fitness would be to include movements that relate to the golf swing. Think of a squat with rotation on the way up.

Legs

Many golfers don’t realize this but your legs play a huge role in your golf swing. Every long hitter in the world realizes this while guys that struggle to hit the ball 225 yards or more usually don’t. Your golf swing using leverage from the ground is far more powerful than just using your arms and hands. What I always tell people is to pause and the top of their backswing. Starting the down swing does not include throwing your arms and hands at the ball as fast as you can. You have to start the downswing with the weight transfer and the rotation from your legs. You are literally pulling the arms back into motion from your hips, not from your upper body.

Rotation

Last but certainly not least, rotation. Rotation is obviously a major part of the golf swing and can either help or hurt you. If your body is not able to rotate properly you will miss out on yards, longevity, and of course, strokes. Having the ability to rotate properly allows all the pieces of the golf swing to fall into place perfectly and at the right time. That is how pros can swing so softly and smoothly yet strike a golf ball that goes 300 yards. They’re swing efficiency is nearly perfect because their body has the ability to rotate around a stable core.

When to start your new Golf Fitness Program

NOW! It sounds cliche but now is the only time you ever have to change the direction in your life. I never understand this until recently something shifted for me. I began to understand why decisions can only be made now. Why can’t I do this later? Why do things that get put off continue to be procrastinated on? It’s really pretty simple. You can’t make a decision in the future and you can’t make a decision in the past. You can only make a decision right now. In the future you will have a whole new set of circumstances and reasons why or why not you can do something. Right now is the perfect time to make a new decision and set the course for a new golf fitness program or a new workout program all together. The only time you will ever have to accomplish your goals is right now, so get started.

Golf Launch monitor with golfer

Launch Monitor Buyers Guide

launch monitor buyers guide

what can a launch monitor do for you?

Our simple answer to this question is, WAY MORE THAN YOU THINK! That’s right, a launch monitor can do a ton for your golf game! In this launch monitor buyers guide we show you everything you need to know before making that investment. Think about it, when is the last time you saw a PGA Tour Player without a TRACKMAN®? It’s not because they look cool. No matter what part of your game you are looking to improve a launch monitor can help. The question becomes how do I know which launch monitor is right for me?

Budget friendly launch monitors

We consider anything under $500 budget friendly when it comes to launch monitors. Mainly because they can get up into the $20,000 range. So for under $500 these rangefinders have a lot to offer without slacking on quality. When it comes to launch monitors it’s important to start with the end in mind. What is your goal? What part of your game are you trying to improve? Are you wanting to hit the ball farther or work on distance control? Are you trying to spin the ball more? Are you trying to get that slice under control? All of these goals will point to a different launch monitor.

More distance/distance control

If all you are looking to do is hit the ball farther and or control your distance better you are in luck! This is the most affordable launch monitor category and devices are cheaper than you may think. For Example, The ES12 Player Launch Monitor by Ernest Sports can help with both of these things plus gives you ball speed! At just $199 this is a great option for to help someone hit the ball farther as well as learn their distances more.

For a slightly higher cost, the Voice Caddie SC200 Plus offers additional data and gives you the ability to track your club head speed without hitting a golf ball. This feature alone has made the SC200 Plus very popular amongst golfers looking for extra distance. At $349 this is one of the better values amongst launch monitors. It also tracks carry distance, club head speed, ball speed, and smash factor.

What is smash factor?

Smash factor has become a very popular term in the golf data world. Simply put, Smash factor is how efficiently the golfer transfers energy to the ball. Smash factor is ball speed divided by club speed. The higher the smash factor the more effective your golf swing is at transferring energy to the golf ball. A good smash factor for the driver is around 1.5. Simply put this is a ball speed of 150/ a swing speed of 100. This has become a very popular statistic because it is an easy way to tell if you are not striking the ball with as much efficiency as you could be. All of the remaining launch monitors we will discuss include this feature.

Spin Rate and launch angle

If you are looking to track spin rates and launch angles, these are the launch monitors for you. With extra data does come a higher price tag, however these launch monitors are sure to deliver with plenty of features to improve your skills.

One of the most popular launch monitors in golf has got some recent upgrades. The Voice Caddie SC300 has been one of the best selling launch monitors and for good reason. It tracks all of the important data we discussed but now offers spin data as well! At $499 we believe this to be one of the best options for golfers looking to get more out of their practice sessions. The SC300 also tracks launch angle and apex, which can be very helpful for someone looking to improve their wedge game. All of these features at under $500 is an absolute steal.

Of course this isn’t your only option, the Ernest Sports ES14 launch monitor includes all of these same features for $495. With the Ernest Sports mobile app you can get all of your practice session data right on your smartphone or tablet. This makes analyzing you data extremely easy and convenient. You can look at averages for each club, and even challenge yourself at the range with different targets. The best part is, the Ernest Sports mobile app is free for life.

Help!! i’m trying to fix my slice

Fixing a slice has never been easier with the right tools and technology on your side. Sure, seeing spin rate is great, but if I can’t see my swing how can I know the cause? The solution, The Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor. The Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor is a a launch monitor that hooks right up to your Apple device. Yes, it is only available on Apple at the moment. This device has the ability to track all the important data points we have discussed like ball speed, club head speed, launch angle, and direction, but one feature separates it from the rest. It records your swings and includes ball flight. That’s right, the MLM (mobile launch monitor) is basically a TRACKMAN®. Best part is, it records up to 100 of your swings, this means you can take your practice data and actually see what causes your slice.

There is no practice like seeing your own swing and the results. Nothing has made improving golf easier than the ability to watch your own swing. This feature alone has made the Rapsodo MLM one of the most popular devices out there.

Honorable mention

Now, although this device isn’t technically budget friendly, priced at $550, it certainly deserves to be a part of this conversation. The Ernest Sports B1 Launch monitor is the newest released device on the market. This product is a recent update of the Ernest Sports ES14 launch monitor and features a larger display, better battery life, and most importantly, is positioned behind the player for better ball flight data.

Are you ready?

Now that you know what the right launch monitor can do for you, are you ready to take your game to the next level? We hope that our launch monitor buyers guide has helped guide you in the right direction to the perfect launch monitor for you.

The 3 best putting tips

The 3 Putting tips no one has ever told you

The 3 Putting tips

First of all, I like putting tips. There’s nothing better in life than hearing an easy tweak from a friend and getting massive results! So what are the 3 best putting tips no one has ever told you? They’re going to surprise you. They have nothing to do with your grip, nothing to do with your stance, and nothing to do with your stroke. Like most of my tips, I like to teach from a place of mindset first. Mindset is the most important part of your golf game that no one is working on, and it helps you in your life too! These three tips are sure to accelerate your golf game and your life.

Visualize it

The second of The 3 putting tips is easy and the greatest athletes in sports history all use it. When it comes to putting, it’s simple, visualize the perfect line where the putt goes in every time. We all have the ability to do this but most of us don’t see the value in it so they don’t take the time. I will tell you that every professional athletes practice this in some form. We all know that the greats do it! So why the fuck are you not doing this? It takes 10 minutes in a day to apply to your life and 30 seconds before a putt. It all comes back to whether you believe it will work or not. Trust me, in 1 week you will understand the importance of this.

What do you think every pro does while they are reading a putt. They are visualizing how this putt is going to drop in the hole. Starting with the end in mind shows you the path. This is why most of them start at the hole and work their way back to their ball.

Feel it

That’s right, use your fucking feelings to your advantage! Why is that such a hard thing for a guy to admit. Using your emotions to your advantage works, and it’s easy and the results show up immediately. Think about it, don’t you perform better when you feel great. Why would you not hack your mind and your putting to use this to your advantage. It’s an easy tweak that will reap benefits you didn’t know were possible and is so easy to implement.

All you need to do is anticipate the outcome you want with feelings of joy, happiness, and gratitude. Sure, it sounds like a fairy tale. Guess what, I wouldn’t be here today without this habit and it only take 5 or 10 minutes a day to notice an immediate impact in whatever your working towards, including putting.

Golf is the most frustrating game on the planet. This is the hardest part right. After I miss a couple 3 footers in a row I’m pretty sure you can see steam coming out of my ears. Take some deep breaths and focus on calming your self down and learn to let it go. This is the most important of “feeling it.” You have to build the habit of being able to calm yourself down no matter what. This is a learned behavior, if getting all worked up is a habit of yours, wouldn’t you agree that you learned that habit? If you learned that habit couldn’t you unlearn that and teach yourself a new behavior? The answer is yes, of course you can. Now is the time to make it a focus.

Lose attachment

This is the most important step, we must detach from the outcome. When we are fearful of a certain outcome (missing a 3 footer) it influences our stroke and clouds our vision. The only reason we would be fearful of this outcome is we attach to much importance to the outcome. It’s important to remember that at the end of the day, this game that we all know and love, is just a game. There is no reason to attach any thing to our results. A make or miss does not define us and you will find when you lose attachment to outcomes, success becomes much easier, and failures don’t hurt as bad. The same goes for life, what goals are you chasing? Do you think you will feel better when you arrive? Of course we think that, that’s half of the reason we set high goals for ourselves. But the truth is, when we finally get there we realize that we don’t feel any different. Maybe for a moment, but once that excitement wears away now what?

Losing attachment doesn’t mean not caring about the outcome, it means not tying our self worth to the outcome. It’s an understanding that you can live with joy, gratitude, and happiness regardless of the outcome. Do you see that mental shift? It doesn’t matter whether I make or miss, either way I am enjoying this round of golf. If you can practice this I guarantee you make more putts and have more fun golfing. Everyone is out there chasing all of these crazy tips from different golfers, none of which are tailored to you. Could it really be simple mental tweaks that take your game and life to the next level? Yes, the question becomes, will you stay focused on them long enough to get those results you are seeking.

How to apply the 3 putting tips to your life

This is the best part, the three putting tips is that it can be applied to your life as well. It may even be more simple to apply to your life. First of all, visualize it. Where are you going? Do you even know? If the picture in your mind of your future is not so strong that you can hear it, taste it, see it, feel it, and speak it, that just means it isn’t real enough yet. If you want to make major changes in your life the first step is visualize your perfect life. What do you want it to like? It is really this simple.

Now that you have your end goal in mind, feel it. Can you train your body to feel your future before it is a reality? Of course you can, you may not know how yet, but that’s what we’re working on. The fact of the matter is, the reason you chose that future outcome is because you think it will make you feel good. Feeling that feeling now is going to bring it life. What’s it going to feel like when you get to $10 million dollars, or get that new job, new car. It’s going to feel amazing right?? Imagine how grateful you will be when this falls into place for you. This is when doors start opening and your mind starts to work for you.

The most important step of the 3 putting tips, let it go. This is the lose attachment step. If this doesn’t work for you immediately are you going to kick and scream, or stay patient and trust the process? The only reason someone would kick and scream when they don’t achieve their goal is because they are way too attached to the outcome. Remember it doesn’t really matter if you hit your goal or not. If you do, great! If you don’t, now you have a clearer roadmap to the outcome you are looking for.

Oh, and when it comes to putting, stop being so afraid. So many of us are afraid to miss a putt and that is the exact outcome we align with. Do you think you make a better stroke when you are scared or confident? Exactly, put the 3 putting tips into practice in your golf game and your life, and share your results with us!
