I came across this video a while ago and have been using the technique ever since. No messing about with your hands, your swing or your hips.
Just point the club toward the hole and move your feet, simples. Its been working for me, thanks Poults.
So even after missing the cut in Abu Dhabi, the Nike pairing of Woods & McIlroy remain numbers 1 & 2. Looking at the rest of the top 20, I have to say there are a few surprises in there. What do you think?
The 46-year-old Dubliner, who becomes Ireland’s first captain in the event, succeeds Jose Maria Olazabal in the position and will go up against an American side that will have golfing great Tom Watson back in charge at the age of 65. Paul McGinley holed the 10-foot winning putt on his debut at The Belfry in 2002 and was also part of the victorious sides in 2004 and 2006 before becoming an assistant to Colin Montgomerie three years ago and then Olazabal at Medinah – both wins as well.
Speaking to the media after his appointment, McGinley said: “I’m obviously very pleased to be in this situation. This is a position that I’m really thrilled to be in, and it’s also a very humbling experience. I can’t wait to get into the role of being the captain. “I’m relishing the thought of taking on one of my great heroes, Tom Watson. He’s not only a wonderful person but a great ambassador for the game of golf.
I’ve never had an opportunity to go up against him in a playing sense. To go up against him in a captaincy sense will be a real thrill for me. It’s a week that I’m really looking forward to.
Todays tournament committee meeting in Abu Dhabi will discuss who takes over from Jose Maria Olazabal. Dubliner Paul McGinley, an assistant in the last two matches, is favourite now that Darren Clarke has stated his desire to regain a place in the team.
But the possibility of Montgomerie, who led the side to victory at Celtic Manor in 2010, being turned to again on home soil remains after Clarke talked about the need for a big character to oppose American choice Tom Watson.
“Obviously, it would be a dream come true if I could be seen to be captain at home in Scotland,” Montgomerie said before heading from South Africa to the Middle East.
“It will be a great honour. It seemed to be between Darren and Paul and now my name seems to be mentioned an awful lot, so we will see.”
As for the demands of the job the eight-time European number one added: “It’s a lot of time, a lot of pressure on family and you as a individual.
“The scrutiny when it’s at home is a lot more. It’s an invasion of your privacy and life.” Read more
FOLLOWING the announcement from the Royal and Ancient Club, along with the United States Golf Association, that belly putters are likely to be outlawed from 2016, it is arguable what effect – if any – it is likely to have on local golfers and professionals.
Former PGA captain and Bradley Park professional Parnell Reilly agreed with the decision to outlaw the putter, but said the impact would be minor.
“It is only over the last couple of years that they have taken off on the Professional Tour, coming to light through the victories of Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson. Prior to that there was only really Ernie Els and Bernhard Langer who tended to use them,” said Reilly.
“Personally, I think it’s the right decision. Read more
