Dear Dr. Putt,
Thank you for your help RE: super fast greens. A Nubbins putter,
Hi-spin ball, and shorter backstroke helped considerably. Made two
birdies today. Also had two 15 footers straight up hill that rolled up,
looked in the hole, and rolled straight back past me and off the
green...did get them thru the windmills tho. Guess I'll have to learn to
make the uphillers everytime. Thanks again, Van McIntosh Troy, NC

I am very impressed with your suggestions along with your knowledge of the
history of golf instruction. My friend, Bob, spends hours on the range as
is but I think if he tries some of your tips he should be fine. He already
is super long and I've helped his putting quite a bit over time so if he
straightens out his drives I could be in trouble...just in case I obtained
literature on some welding schools for my girls....
Thankful in Boulder.

I actually "rolled" several into my little putt returner thingy on the
carpet and the new technique worked quite nicely. You're right, with the
ball more forward, I can see the line and the hole. It just felt a lot
better. Now, if I could only decide which one of my five putters works
best! Too bad I don't live in Florida doc, I'd take the new technique out
for a test drive today. Toronto greens are a little white this time of

I wrote recently and you gave me some invaluable advice on the short game.
You also helped with my driving. I still slice a bit on occasion, but
most of my drives are now staying on the fairway. Your advice has
accelerated my learning curve immensely. Before I wrote you, I was hoping
to shoot a 45 ( 9 holes). I had shot a couple of 48's. This past weekend
after applying your advice, I holed my first two birdies ever and shot
rounds of 41 and 40. In less than a week you have changed my goal from
bogeying the course to parring the course. Thank you for your help Dr.
Putt, I am still working on the last advice you gave so no new questions
