The Golf Fix - Putting With Brad Faxon


Posted by Dexter Francois | Posted in , , , | Posted on Monday, March 1, 2010

Tonight's episode of the Golf Fix features Brad Faxon of the PGA Tour. I'm excited about this episode because Faxon and Michael Breed will be talking about putting. This is the part of my game that needs the most work and I am looking forward to getting some good tips from one of the most consistent putters of all time.

I'm also excited because Brad Faxon is from Rhode Island. Although I was born on the island of Trinidad, I grew up in Rhode Island. I have fond memories of the Biggest Little State In The Union. One of those memories was playing baseball during the summer vacation.

I played baseball from the age of six until I left for college playing my final to summers for Post 10 an American Legion team. One day we got a visit from Brad Faxon who was friends with our coach and few of the families on the team. At the time I had know interest in golf and I had no idea who he was.

What I remember about Faxon on that day was even though I didn't know who he was, I knew he was somebody. He carried himself very well and he seemed like someone who was calm but in control of his situation. I guess that is why he is such a good putter.

To be a good putter one has to be calm under pressure situations. No situation in golf is more tense than standing over a four foot putt to save par. I start thinking about all kinds of things instead of staying focused on just making a good stroke.

Hopefully I can pick up some useful tips from tonights broadcast. I need it. I recorded five three putts on the front nine of my last round. None on the second half but without those three putts I would have recorded my best round.

Make sure to tune in for the special putting episode tonight at 7:00 PM EST. on The Golf Channel. I'm going to try to get my email question on the show. Maybe Brad Faxon will remember me. Hey, you never know. Have a good one and always hit your target.

    Dexter, Putting is proving to be a challenge for most golf players. I'm glad that there are people like Brad Faxon whose willing to share their knowledge on that field.

    Also, another interesting option to try are golf putting training aids. They are some of the tools that helps in maintaining a steady stroke which is the core of putts. Hence, a golf putting training aid is a good way to improve one's game.

    Hope to see more tips from your blog. Thanks!
