BirdieMaster said:if i can only pick 2 clubs out of the bag to play, it would be 5,6. i can make long drives and still be able to putt with them. if i only have the putter, then well i am screwed. people think that putter is so important, yes it is, but you need to hit it to the green first to putt, you cant start putting from the tee, and make it to the green, youll have like 20+ strokes. but yet i can do all that with my 5 or 6.
Competitions are won by guys who can hit tee shots, approach shot, AND putts. Otherwise known as professionals.Competitions are won or lost on the [COLOR=green! important][COLOR=green! important]putting green[/COLOR][/COLOR]. Not on the Tee or the Fairway.
thats where i shoot and i would say the same, i have gotten a lot better at putting and im getting some birdie putts to fall.golfermatt91 said:i think the putter if your shooting around 85 and you become able to two putt and knock out those 3 and 4 puts your breaking 80 thats how you lower your scores less putts.
Winning tournaments comes from dropping putts, if a golf pro cant hit a green in regulation or get close enough to give him / herself decent birdie attempts then they should not be pros.golfbore66 said:Hi,
I have just signed up to this forum and am very surprised by the reader poll which indicates that approx 57% think that their putter is the most important club!
Surely it is more important to be standing over shorter putts which comes from better Distance and Directional Control with your approach shots i.e. irons.
This is why Monty has won the European Tour OOM 8 TIMES!!
He played so many shots from the fairway that he had a better chance of controlling his distance and trajectory.
People who think their putter is the most important club should try recording their stats and find out where the real troubles lie.
Has anyone found any good golf stats websites or software?
