“Derek and I had a great time playing together! I’ve known Derek since he was 19. We both played well and laughed along the way.”
I recently put my Edel putter back into my bag and it has changed my life!
I believe Edel’s theory on using a putter that you aim well. After much research and using a laser to measure aim on students, I have found that most mis-aim from inside six feet. Being fit with the proper hosel offset, loft, weight, length and more is so important.
I’ve been in conversation with David Edel himself a dozen times in the last couple of months. I have learned so much more about his research that I am excited to share with you.
Q 1) You play at Western Washington University. Nice. Is your game progressing? How? Why? What is happening?
Michael: Yes I do play at WWU. I feel like my game is progressing nicely because I am thinking more effectively on the golf course. I feel like with the help of Jeff I have been less attached to results and I am getting better at seeing my target and reacting to that target. This helps keep negative thoughts out of my head and frees me up! I also feel like I am practicing better with simple drills to make my practice more like the way I play.
Q 2) You just won Homestead Open! How did you feel coming down the stretch? How did you cope and finish the job?
Michael: I felt great coming down the stretch! It was a lot of fun and I just enjoyed seeing my target and letting It go. I focused more on trusting my swing and my game instead of thinking about results. I also realized that If I did what I am supposed to do and commit to my shots that the result would take care of itself.
