Andy Berry says:

When Crossfield talks about putting, I listen. Great tip. #magicwand

"…I was an art student for a little bit of time…" This explains so much 🙂 #PlayerOfTheYear2015MarkCrossfield

Paul G says:

Great start to the putting series! Now give us something on breaking putts. I would argue that 95% of all putts per round have some break to them. Please show us the relationship between the aim point in front of the hole where the ball starts to track to the hole as it slows down. Going to the practice green today. Thanks Mark!

Andrew Phelan says:

Nice drill, thanks Mark. I struggle with distance control – a lot! Do you have a system for judging distances, e.g. backswing length, or are you just thinking about delivering the clubhead at certain speeds? Your course vlogs are also mighty entertaining, keep up the good work.

Adam Flynn says:

Couldn't agree more if u can judge the speed well even if u read the break poorly u will still have a very short putt for ur 2nd. focusing on distance control knocked shots of my handicap quickly and my putting went from strength to strength as my confidence grew.

Vici Martynov says:

I don't have to shut my eyes, it wouldn't make any difference. Once I have addressed the ball I glance briefly at the hole and get its jizz (think you golfing purists would call that reading the green), i look back at the ball and never look at the hole again, direction and distance is programmed in so I just hit it. I expect a 2 put. if it goes in its a bonus. Its the magic ingredients, confidence and committing to the strike 😉

Golf Fox says:

I more or less do this anyway. first thing I ever learned about putting was to keep the head down after making the putt, So for me it's normally 2 seconds before I look up after a putt.

great video … definitely going into my favorites list

wibble entity says:

Is this for Buzza?

MrSekitori says:

Wouldn't it be better to actually look at the hole while putting, thus 'programming' your brain with the feeling of the speed of the putter while watching the result….

TheWesterndevon says:

Lovely looking green, where are you?

cwugrad396 says:

I did this routine before I played today … 29 putts!!!!!!

j keyes says:

Mark, love the videos! Maybe you can help me out seems like some rounds I go out and I've got all the lines pegged on my putts but I will leave them short. Then keep loving them short all day. Obviously hit it harder is the easy answer but how can I overcome that back of the mind feeling of don't blow it ten feet past the hole. And I don't mean way short but some days I leave the ball a half foot short all day.

Jesus Cerna says:

my friend always tells me "distance before the line" it help.

perrykruger says:

I watched this for the first time today and tried it out on the course in a wee bounce game and the results where outstanding, I thought my putting was getting good but this just stepped my game up, thanks again Marc!

Elias Nissilä says:

I'm sorry man, I can't watch your videos anymore because your voice is annoying.

Kelly Miller says:

Mark I tend to top all my long putts when I have to hit them hard. How do I stop this problem? Thanks!

JDUB says:

Long time watcher, 1st time writer. Im an old golf psychologist. Now go out to the green and tell yourself that all LONG PUTTS ARE STRAIGHT PUTTS.  Don't read anything just hit the sob. Let me know.

Only Good Music says:

Cheers for this, I've been looking for "perfect golf swing video" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Graysonyon Putter Prolific – (just google it ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my colleague got cool success with it.
