Product Description

Dave Pelz`s Putting Bible Hard Back

Golfing expert Dave Pelz focuses on putting in this guide - golf's least understood skill. Because a putt is the terminal shot on every hole and there is no possibility of recovery from short misses, putts count almost a disproportionate amount. As Dave explains, putting is actually simple to understand and do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Putting Pleasure! 13 May 2004
By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
This book deserves many more than five stars!
This is simply the best book to improve your putting that has ever been written.
Let me give you an example. I recently played in Southern California after a rain-soaked night. The greens were dripping. My opponent said "I wonder how hard to hit it through this water." And I quoted from this book. He made his putt, and so did I. In fact, the highlight of the round was a tricky 23 foot birdie putt. Thank you, Dave Pelz!
I have taken Dave Pelz's short game course, so I didn't know how much this book would help me. So I came to this book thinking, this will be a good refresher. That was right, but the insights I got from this book exceeded all that I learned in that course about putting.
The book explains the engineering approach that Pelz has brought to putting. He measures everything he can think of. The beginning explains key concepts of green problems -- like the raised donut around the hole where no one steps (the rest of the green is downtrodden by thousands of footsteps daily).
The next section explains the 15 building blocks of putting -- like aim, path, touch, rhythm, ritual, feel, face angle, stability, attitude, and routine.
Then Pelz puts special attention on speed and reading the green. Chapter 7 on green reading was worth the price of the book alone. He answered questions I have asked dozens of pros, and received no good answers to.
Then, he describes how to use these basics to improve your putting. I have been using a number of these for the last several years, and can certainly attest that they work.
Each point is beautifully explained.

I highly recommend this book, just have patience. It is heavy stuff! Don't buy this if you have a short attention span. The man loves the look of his own words in print, and boy are there a lot of his words. At times the level of detail is boring, like the effect of hitting the dimples, BUT if you want to improve your putting, this IS the book for you. In three months I have reduced my admittedly miserable average by 4.61 putts per round in the first 6 medal rounds of this year. The instructional part is very clear and easy to understand, and it has certainly worked for me. There is a supporting video available and it is good, but I highly recommend the book if you are seriously keen to improve your putting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Training with purpose 29 Jan 2004
Size Name:One Size Only
I used to train my putting like many other amateurs - just getting on the putting field, trying to hole the ball in the next free hole. Now I train with a purpose every time I take my putter.
Pelz' scientific approach not only helps with setting up a training regime for using your training time effecient but also expands your knowledge about green reading, speed, clubs, strokes, training aids...... and everything else you ever wanted to know about putting. This book is a "must-have"

5.0 out of 5 stars The former rocket scientist has done it again 29 Jun 2000
Size Name:One Size Only
After reading Dave Pelz's previous book, the 'Short Game Bible' I was very impressed with his scientific and factual approach to golf. Golf is a game of numbers and Pelz provides all the figures you need to understand how to score on and around the greens. The 'putting bible' answers all the questions you ever had about putting and those you had not even thought about. Did you know, for example, what a 'pendulum stroke' actually means? Pelz explains it in a way that leaves no doubts. Teaching of putting has always been characterised by a great emphasis on the 'art of putting', mystifying it and stressing that technique is less important than ill-defined ingredients like mental attitude, feel and so forth. Pelz puts all these components (he defines 15 in total) into the proper context. Having read this book you wil be able to understand what you can control on the putting green and what you can't - and how to live with this. I am sure that anyone who reads the 'putting bible' and applies its principles will putt better and improve his or her scores.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helped me putt really well for a while 19 Jan 2009
Size Name:One Size Only
I read this shortly after I took up golf seriously and then spent a month working hard on the drills in the book having parted with a large amount of money for the practice aids he recommended.

The result was that I started putting superbly - averaging less than 30 putts a round which for a relatively new golfer was excellent, especially as my chipping was not all that hot. My golfing buddies used to look on in amazement and would comment that within 15 feet they could bank on me making a very high percentage of those putts. My average score started to tumble from being someone who struggled to break a hundred at times to someone who expected to be in the low 90's and ocassionaly in the 80's.

Now for the down sides:

1 He teaches a straight back and through stroke. Great for short and medium putts but not so good on longer putts especially when you do not play on tour speed greens most of the time and have to hit the ball relatively hard. Also some putters will naturally have a small arc in their putt and will not like this kind of stroke and should therefore work on different fundamentals eg more like the approach Stan Utley suggests.

2 The book is very long. The key is working on the drills which are summarised at the end. I summarised what I needed on 15 small cards which I refer to every now and again.

3 Many of the drills need expensive aids eg putting tracks, metronomes etc. Much of this can be home made or bought more cheaply from a big golf store/internet retailer but this is still a problem. You will get little benefit if you do not do the drills.

Dave Pelz certainly knows all there is to know about putting but does it really take 400+ pages to not tell me an awful lot. Read more

Really appealed to my sense of the mechanical aspects of putting. Helped me understand and appreciate how to evolve my technique to play the odds and conditions more to my favour.

I am enjoying reading this book and expect to continue reading for some weeks. The middle of the golf season is probably not the best time to read this tome.
