Putting for 59

2010-07-10 :: geoff@puttingzone.com (Geoff Mangum)

SBST or Arcing Stroke?

2010-07-01 :: geoff@puttingzone.com (Geoff Mangum)

Golfers always want to know WHETHER I teach a straight-back, straight-thru stroke OR an inside-square-inside "arcing" stroke. I think BOTH are wrong-headed and misleading. What the golfer needs is a...

AimPoint Charts Use Illegal?

2010-04-19 :: geoff@puttingzone.com (Geoff Mangum)

Top All-Around Players

2010-03-26 :: geoff@puttingzone.com (Geoff Mangum)

Martin Kaymer and a Round of 22 Putts at Doral

2010-03-14 :: geoff@puttingzone.com (Geoff Mangum)
