Roger's success after a putter fitting and lesson
9 May 2017 12:20 pm
After playing for many years Ross-on-Wye GC member Roger Alford had never had a putter fitting or taken a putting lesson.
Last month Roger approched me struggling with his putting. After a short disussion he booked a putter fitting gold package which is great value at £50 for a 2 hour session and includes technique help as well as a full fitting using the Science & Motion Putt Lab.
Here are the posture changes we made:
- More tilt so the elbows sit in behind the shoulders, allowing his elbows, hands and club shaft to be in a straight line
Roger has also recently been custom fitted for a new set of Ping irons and loves the way they perform and feel
Roger has recently celebrated a big win, winning the 1st of the Layton Cup senior competitions beating 102 of his fellow members! Well done Roger.
Here is what Roger had to say -
"Oli is an awesome coach and has the ability to teach in an entertaining and constructive way ….. A true master of his craft; this was clearly demonstrated to me as I was assessed for my new putter and then coached in its use. Something must have stuck in the grey matter, as on my third round using the putter I achieve some success in one of the Club competitions!!!! Thanks Oli."
Through the posture changes and a custom fitted putter the improvement to both Rogers putter aim and path were huge. As you can see from the SAM Putt Lab report below -

Huge improvements I'm sure you will agree
