Golf Smarter Podcast: How to Read Putts
In episode 134 (July 8, 2008) on Fred Greene's Golf Smarter Podcast, Geoff Mangum of the PuttingZone discusses instinctive reading of putts. Explaining how the brain predicts the future of a successful putt using timing, touch, and intuitive visualization, Geoff then explains how the final three feet of so of the "read" can be used to generate an aim line for orienting the putter face and starting the roll of the ball along, and also a "touch reference" at the "end of this line" so that the same touch used to predict the "read" is used to execute the putt. See it then putt straight with the usual timing. (39 minutes, audio). Listen.
