Format: Hardcover
For those of you who are in search of a putting stroke I offer you three books that you should consult. The first one is by Golf Digest and was published back in 1973. It is called All About Putting. This book illustrate many different putting strokes. The second book you should consult is Paul Runyan's book called The Short Way to Lower Scoring. And the last book is this book written by Dave Stockton. What I like about this book is that it covers the critical aspects of the putting stroke. Despite the fact that Dave has his opinion and the book is written from his point of view, he is very open to other methods. Such is the topic of putting. Dave gives you the best advice he can yet he recognizes others have putted using different ideas. Such is the character of putting. As you search for your putting stroke be open to learning as many different putting strokes as possible. In doing so, you will increase your chances of finding the right stroke for you. You will have arrived at your destination when you can roll the ball like Loren Roberts.

From the author of The Golf Swing: It's all in the Hands.

I bought this book after not being able to follow David Pelz's Putting Bible. Dave Stockton makes sense of putting the way most average players can understand without going into the physics of the putting action. I've lowered my putting average by more than a stroke since instituting this putting style... I'm impressed.

The book is basically free of the mechanics of the putting stroke. Emphasizes seeing the line & your pre- putt routine. Dave has identified that what you need is a setup & stroke that suites me. My putting has improved since reading and working on reading the line, setup & stroke. Last two rounds no three putts.
Thank you Dave

'Insider Information' that is legal! June 11 2012
By R. Tobias - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have owned probably too many books on putting. Too much information can be a bad thing, esp. when some of that info is contradictory. But this is, quite likely, the only putting book I will ever need from now on, and the one that I wish that I had when I played for my college team. I have long considered Mr. Stockton to be one of the best, if not the best of some excellent coaches when it comes to putting. Annika Sorenstam went to Dave in the midst of her amazing career, and in short order her putting went from being middle of the pack to one of the very best in the women's game. Currently, Phil Mickelson has been working w/ Dave, and he is having a renaissance in his putting too! He was ranked right at 130th on tour in putting the last 3 yrs, and after working w/ Dave, currently is 14th! So what I am saying, is here is real 'insider dope', an approach that has been tried and tested. Why? Because Dave Stockton made his living for decades on the PGA and Senior PGA tours largely on the strength of his putting, not his ball striking. What he was taught by his father and other golfiing mentors, he passes on to you. I will say, though, that this book is not for the casual golfer, but one who is willing to tackle radically different thinking. The title gives a hint of what is in store. No more obsessive focus on mechanics, but instead on visualizing the line of the putt, for example. Not all will buy his thinking, but I know that it has helped numerous pros, and it has helped me already, even though I haven't learned the totality of the content of the book yet. If you are open minded and willing to try a radically different approach, you owe it to yourself to try this out.

Brief and very clear Sept. 16 2011

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you have seen Dave Stockton on the Golf Channel, you know that he is a great teacher on putting. My one complaint is that the book is only 90 pages. The concepts and ideas that he wants to convey are clear and interesting.

Putting Is Half Your Score Nov. 2 2011
By Donald A. Collins - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mr. Stockton's record as a touring professional makes this book a must read. His advice is interesting since he gets away from the mechanical aspects into the realm of the unconscious or intuitive. Muscle memory and the imprint on our subconsious is well exemplified by any one who touch types: You don't have to think about where the keys are, your fingers just go there. So why not apply this fact to instruction of any kind?

As a mediocre but avid player for some 65 years, I constantly seek Nurvana in this key scoring aspect of golf and welcomed this book as most useful.

Remember, since par is figured for any hole by allowing two strokes, so theoretically putting is half your score. While no player consistently hits every green in regulation, thus usually one takes fewer than 36 putts on a par 72 course.

Still, as more and more players, even touring pros, seem to be using the putter even when off the green, reading Mr. Stockton's book will be well worth doing.

Great for Feel Players June 5 2013
By Clayton McLaughlin - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First, Dave Stockton is highly regarded as one of the best putters in history, and the man never took a practice stroke. Throughout this book he talks about feeling the putt. If you're looking for an instruction manual with exact tips on exactly how to putt, go read the Dave Pelz Bible books. Dave Stockton includes some tips regarding hand placement, green reading, etc., but he doesn't believe there is one right way to putt. That is very evident throughout this book. I was originally surprised at how thin the book was after reading the Pelz stuff (which reaches 400 pages). But as a feel player myself, I really appreciated the approach that Stockton uses. If you're new to golf, I would not recommend this book. But if you've been playing for years, there are some handy thoughts in here that could take you to the next level.
