Tru-vu: Change the Way You Look at Putting Forever
A Book About Golf, Life and How to Become A Good-to-Great PuttereBook - 2013
Golf is a tradition-bound sport that has forced golfers to not make the best use of their instinctive ability to aim the putterhead, as well as creating a visual disconnect that can seriously degrade distance control on putts over ten feet. Tru-Vu putting is based on the concept that the golfer should face the hole when putting, thus creating a simple, one-armed putting motion that is instinctive for both aim and distance control. The putter, nor the forearm, are braced against the body, which keeps it in line with the newest ruling by the USGA and R&A banning anchoring. Research into both visual and learning theory are used as background material to build the case that traditional putting styles are more difficult to master and seldom, if ever, create long-term putting success. The author explains the sequence of events that lead to the initial research into possible solutions to help his aging father cope with physical limitations, as well as his personal battle with multiple sclerosis for several years. His personal journey during the writing of the book is a vital part of the book as he describes the failures and success along the path to what has become a lifelong solution to his putting woes.
