Dave Pelz's Putting Bible
This is simply the best book to improve your putting that has
ever been written. This book is a must read for any serious golfer.
There is something for everyone in
this book. Pelz tells you what has proven to work through
scientific research. It has more information than most golfers will
ever absorb, but that is one of its strengths. You could devote a lot
of time learning about putting and grooving the perfect stroke. Most of
us don't have that much time. You might have to dig through the details
to decide which
gems you want to adopt. You can always go back later and pick up some
Dave Pelz's Putting Bible (Hardcover) - by Dave
Golf's foremost apostle from 100 yards in, Dave Pelz follows
up the bestselling Short
essential testament on how to get on the green--with chapter and verse
on what to do once you're finally there. The lower your handicap, the
more of a religious experience it should be.
While you don't have to be a rocket scientist to explain the
work in rolling a small, dimpled ball over changing terrain toward a
cup that looks far too small for its purpose, Pelz was in fact a rocket
scientist by trade. His approach is analytical, theoretical,
mechanical, and systematic, brimming with graphs, charts, and
But don't let that scare you--for all the science, Pelz
and the gospel he preaches are as inspiring as a good sermon and
readily understandable regardless of your skill level. Yes, advanced
players will no doubt be more intrigued with the depths Pelz plumbs,
but high handicappers can draw solace from the quality of the
supplicants who've sought his counsel--Lee Janzen, Annika Sorenstam,
Steve Elkington, and Colin Montgomery, for starters--and proceed from
there. Numbers, charts, and graphs aside, Pelz preaches good grip and
stroke, proper reading of lines and distances, the importance of
leaving a ball in the best location (that only seems obvious),
and the need to identify your putting weaknesses, learn why they're
your weaknesses, and address the proper fixes. "Never give up on
putting well," Pelz stresses. By studying his bible and heeding his
golden rules, you'll find yourself standing over those knee-rattling,
downhill 4-footers with a lot more going for you than just a prayer.
"Do I believe in Dave Pelz? I paid full price to go
to his school, and it was the best money I've ever spent. I
have won my second U.S. Open without his help. I am a believer."
"Dave Pelz has added more irrefutable knowledge to golf instruction
than any man alive."
--George Peper, editor-in-chief, GOLF Magazine
"In one day's work with Pelz, I learned more about putting than I had
known my entire life."
"You cannot do more for your putting than to follow Dave Pelz."
--D. A. Weibring
"Dave Pelz is the best. It's pure and simple. If
you want to play your best, you work with the best... that's
"Dave Pelz knows more about putting than Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and
Ben Crenshaw combined!"
