Evnroll On A Roll
Putting is a slow science.
At four miles per hour, a putter moves at a turtle’s pace compared to other clubs where speed is at a premium and launch monitors are requisite. No place in the golf bag does that ring truer than with the driver where average swings are at 80-90 m.p.h. for most golfers with accompanying ball speeds reaching 120 m.p.h. and 130 m.p.h.
That said no one disputes the impact of golf’s slowest science on the bigger picture. Statistically, putting comprises slightly more than 40 per cent of shots in a round of golf. It’s the game within the game, the difference between tour pros winning golf tournaments or missing cuts or, for you and I, winning or losing a $2 Nassau. It’s dynamically slow, but of this we can all be certain: putting demands every golfer’s utmost attention and respect.
