Tiger's 5 Secret Keys to Score Low

Filed under: by: golf clubs showcase


Tiger Woods has won twice as many professional events and nearly five times as many majors as the next closest active player on Tour. While he doesn't dominate in every area of the game, he consistently plays above his peers in five key on-course situations, which we identified after comparing Tiger against the field in every performance category monitored by the PGA Tour's ShotLink from the start of the 2002 season to Tiger's final round at the 2008 U.S. Open. Four of Tiger's five key strengths — the areas in which he's statistically light years ahead of the field — have nothing to do with power, proving you don't need to swing at 125 mph or drop 4-iron shots like they're landing on a pile of laundry to score like the No. 1 player in the world. All you need is his strategy and smarts — the stuff anyone can work on — and a few new options in your short game. Here's how to get them.

Tiger Key 1: He hits the green even when his tee shots miss

Tiger Key 2: He knocks it extra-stiff from short range

Tiger Key 3: He controls the damage when he misses greens

Tiger Key 4: He has a wider "make range" when he putts

Tiger Key 5: He dominates the easy holes

Great article and Interesting reading, Thank you. I had been (up until a year ago) searching for the solution to my putting problems (yips) for years, trust me I had tried & spent everything from side saddle, belly putters, hypnosis, even sticking my tongue out at address which whilst looking stupid also is very uncomfortable, as you have guessed extreme alterations work for a short period but sooner or later (normally sooner) the old grey matter takes over again and along come those negative thoughts that enter your head like a third party telling you “your not going to make this putt”.

One sunny day at The Belfry Golf Club a year ago I watched a guy on the putting green before his round practising two and three foot putts with a hoop six inches in front of the hole the hoop was only just big enough for the ball to pass and enter the hole, I was intrigued and watched from afar being careful for him not to think I was stalking him, every ball was hit at pace with such confidence that I had to approach him and ask why and what he was using. He replied “This is my little gem PUTT GUIDER she never leaves my side, and is the reason I have become a confident putter, it keeps me focused and interested in practising the most important and valuable shot in golf, the six to two foot putt. Whilst I am stood here practising a shot which I will play at least eighteen times today and will be 20% of my round” we looked around the putting green and he was right the rest of the competitors where on the range thrashing the driver.

Later at prize giving John as his name turned out to be picked up prizes for the best Nett score, best Gross score and least putts for his round, he didn’t win longest drive, but hey long drives don’t win competitions do they?. As soon as I got home, I searched in Google PUTT GUIDER and clicked on www.puttguider.com, my little gem arrived two days later. I cannot believe the difference she has made, I now spend more time on the putting green with PUTT GUIDER than I do my partner, which is a blessing in its self, more importantly my trophy cabinet is now full because I can now stand up to a short putt knowing I am going to drain it. It has been the best £9.99 I have spent, go buy one now and try it for yourself. www.puttguider.com
