Optimal Putting: Brain Science, Instincts, and the Four Skills of Putting... A New Paradigm for Putting in the 21st Century - First Edition, January 2008 - 270 pp. - From the Dustjacket: Golf's "game within a game" -- putting -- has long been regarded by golfers as the "black art" that defies explanation. Despite the fact that strokes on the green typically account for nearly half of every golfer's score for every round ever played, and that the putter is used over twice as often as the driver, golf instruction has concentrated upon the full swing and has neglected putting. Until now. Geoff Mangum has studied the art and science of putting more widely and deeply than anyone in the game. Like a number of people before him, he found that golf instruction historically has failed to come to grips with the key issues for how to putt. Although every putt requires four skills -- the abilities to read the putt, aim the putter, stroke the ball where aimed, and control the pace or distance -- conventional golf lore seldom converns anything other than the stroke. Until now. Venturing outside golf for answers to the simple questions posed by the four skills of putting, Geoff Mangum's two decades of reserch directed him away from "what the putter does" and instead to "what the golfer does" to put well consistently. This in turn led him to the neuroscience of perception for targeting (reading, aiming and distance perception) and movement (stroke and touch), as well as biomechanics, anatomy, vision and related sciences. The result is a revolutionary new way to apply optimal techniques for instinctive putting. Geoff Mangum's innovative "Mechanics of Instincts" is an integrated system of simple but lethally effective techniques that help beginners and seasoned pros alike reach new levels of constant competence while firing dramatically lower scores. There has never been anything like this in golf. Until now. Welcome to the 21st century.
