The golf instruction book: Five Steps to Better Putting
This fully illustrated golf instruction book on putting,
written in easy to understand language, takes you through the preliminarties,
including grip, stance, where to play the ball, distance from the ball,
and swing tempo. It discusses the importance of developing a putting routine,
and makes suggestions for the essential elements of a good routine. It
guides you through each of the five steps of the EOB putting system. The
book helps you prepare for each round of golf by showing you how to quickly
build a "feeling gauge" for distance and build confidence before heading
to the first tee. It provides a trouble shooting section that includes
diagnostics and corrections. It has a number of drills that will help you
use the system and make putting fun. Finally, it helps you develop a healthy
philosophy of putting so that you will get more out of the art of golf.
The book ends with a complete pictoral review of each of the five steps.
The author, Dr. Robert E. Botsch, former collegiate golf
coach and instructor, has authored a number of other books, book chapters,
and journal articles, as well as numerous newspaper articles in his other
life as a professional social scientist. He was recognized in 1988 by the
Council for the Advancement and Support of Education as one of the top
ten college professors in the nation. Any confusion between "Dr. Bob" and
Dr. Putt is purely coincidental, though Dr. Putt did make significant contributions
to this golf instruction book on putting.
