Ian Has Gone From Shooting In The Nineties To Shooting In The Seventies In 12 Weeks!
After “surfing the net” for “get-better-at-golf information,” Ian came across The Truth About Putting home page. The message on the page (remember the photo of the Hunter) rang home. Ian had played plenty of sport and darts in particular. He took the fire-at-the-target darts mentality to the greens” (like old Ray did). Wise move Ian.
“I Managed to break 80 for the first time last Easter weekend. For that I thank you.
My poor sad mates want to know what kinda performance enhancing drugs I’m on. Do I share this information with them, no hope in hell is that happening!”

“Hi Anthony, I have been using your method for 12 rounds of golf. I am very happy to say that my lowest was 26 and my highest was 31 putts per round. My handicap is 7 and I am 66 years old. I am a believer of your method of putting. I am looking forward to keep on improving using your method of putting.

Thanks for all the great advice! This email “pearl” had improved my putting considerably over the past few months. It is one of your “mantras” that should be followed by everyone.[David is referring to one of the email lessons sent out over the months]

After A Few Weeks Of “Tinkering (And Some Email Pointers By Myself) Female Golfer Joan Broke Her Handicap By 5 Shots And Shot 41 Stableford Points
I have had a lesson on my putting in the past but they never covered the 4 Rs or explained it like you have. I use to putt from instinct and have won putting competitions in the past but I have never analyzed the putts like I can now and learn from a missed putt instead of getting nervous over each putt.
Update #3, Joan wins club championship by 20 shots and has 24 putts in the final round!
And 65 Years Young, 8-Handicapper Larry From Huston, Texas, U.S.A…. Larry tells me that over 20 rounds – he has gone from an average of 34 putts/round to 30.5 – a 3.5 shot/round improvement (to go with lower scores). Here is a short extract from Larry…
Hi Anthony. This is Larry Pearson writing you. Before I decided to write to you what your putting system, “The Truth About Putting” has helped me accomplish, I wanted to follow it every week with your instructions, implement the lessons and track my results. But I want to give you a little of my bio first. I am 65 yrs. old, live in the Houston, Texas, USA area and have played golf for 53 years. My golf game has always been pretty consistent, single handicap 7 -9 range for the past 25 years, but always felt that my putting had room for improvement.
I have had 6 golf instruction swing lessons, from golf professionals, in the last 10 years when I felt my swing needed a little tuning up. I have never solicited a putting lesson from a professional instructor. The number of putts, per 18 holes, that I averaged, prior to The Truth About Golf, was 32 on a good day, to 38 on a bad day. So 32-38 average putts were the usual number of strokes I had accepted for my game. That was until you and I teamed up to improve my putting for each round in my golf game. You asked to hear from me and now is a good time to report back to you on my progress. I started implementing your instructions approximately 3 1/2 months ago from today June 10.
To say that my results have improved would be an under statement. The change in my putting game has been close to remarkable in my view. In the last 30 to 45 days, my number of putts, per 18 holes, have averaged from 27 on a good day, to 34 on a bad day. 27 -34 average putts is the improvement so far. This is based on 20 rounds of golf. I have followed your system, as close as possible, and I am still improving each week. Today, my total number of putts for 18 holes was 30 (with a 3 putt hole). If I now have a day when I putt 34 times, I know that I have not religiously followed the routine. The guys that I play with have all noticed a remarkable improvement in my putting game. My 18 hole scores are trending lower, and the reason is the number of putts per round are lower.
My enjoyment of golf has always been fun, but it has now become magnified when I go to the course. Anthony, I can’t thank you enough for sharing with me your putting knowledge and your putting course. I believe one of the most important benefits of The Truth About Putting is the weekly contact that you provide with the course.
The new information and the reminders each week to practice the putting routine is a key element to success. The putting routine has become a habit now, along with mapping a spot or spots on the putting surface to make your stroke to the hole. When I would catch myself not doing this, the results weren’t very good. When I do my routine, the results are usually very good. The mindset now is that I should make every putt inside of 20 feet and that I will always have a tap in on any length putt if it doesn’t go in the hole. I don’t ever think now that the putt is not going in. What a different thinking from 4 months ago. Thank you again Anthony for all your help. You really have something with “The Truth About Putting.”
My sincere gratitude and thanks.

UPDATE…A Year later and the putting is getting stronger
Hi Anthony. Larry Pearson here. Just got back from the biggest 3 day golf tournament I play in every year.
104 players this year. Each year we have tournaments inside the traditional tournament, such as a Putting tourn., and a Shootout tourn.
In this email I am sending you a picture of the winner of the putting tourn. I beat 103 golfers for the $300 first prize. I was nicked name Mr. Automatic after the putting tourn.
10 guys asked me where I learned to putt that good and I gave them your website. Hopefully they will contact you about joining our team.
Also in the Shootout, my 3 man team placed 2nd., with $200 a man, and yours truly made some great putts in that too. After our 2 round in the big tourn., which I had a 70 yr. old partner in a 2 man scramble format, the other 2 guys playing with us sincerely marveled at both of our putting.
In 18 holes we used only 24 putts. On the last hole I sank a 42 ft. putt for a birdie.
“Recently, a partner said that I just walk up to the ball and knock it in without fear.”
“The biggest improvement in my putting has been in the short stuff. The one to two metre putts no longer cause my knees to knock. I now also regularly have less than 30 putts per round and have all but eliminated three-putts. Truth About Putting has given me real insight. It is a system that is reliable and works. The best endorsement, though, is from playing partners who have commented about how well I am putting. Recently, a partner said that I just walk up to the ball and knock it in without fear. Sound familiar?”

Fresh in from Singapore… Another inspirational success story from Truth About Putting Devotee – Beh Chin. His words:
“From using your technique, my best round was 24 putts with scores 78 (my best scores ever). There are some amazing experiences through those game, last month I played the round of 82 with 25 putts, I made 3 birdies in 4 holes, this feels very good and enjoyable.Thanks for the continuous advice and technique recommendations.
Really enjoy the games now.
Jim is is breaking 80 more often…
Thanx for the lessons. I have improved my putting since I have used your method. I rarely 3 putt anymore. I feel that once I’m on the green I’m confident I will at least 2 putt and sometimes, 1 putt. I have just started using your magic swing technique [swing videos and e-book]. I am concentrating on using my left arm as the guide letting my right arm go along for the ride. I have hit some tremendous drives but still occasionally lose focus and hit some bad ones. The bad ones seem to happen when I try to “kill” the ball (hit it really far) or I get in a hurry. Any help for these problems? FYI, I shot a 77 the last round I played. I rarely shoot below 80. My goal is to be in the 70’s most of the time. With your help I know I can do it.
Me: Great work Jim!

21 Handicapper – Harold, had 7 one-putts in 18 holes
Benjamin says he has completed the “missing part” to his golf game – Putting
Ben shot +8 off a 15 handicap – with 13 putts on the front 9. His best round in 18 months!
Michael had the “Yips”...during this period he purchased four putters, fat putter-grips and even tried putting left handed. His game deteriorated, he hated the game. He’s handicap blew out from 10 to 13.
Then he tried The Truth About Putting…He recently recorded a 79 with 31 putts. He says “the game is now enjoyable, again, for me. Thank you so much”.
