The benefit of one lesson

I took a brief putting lesson from Gregg Thrall the other day. He showed me I was aiming left on every putt, and provided me with some drills to correct the problem.

I showed immediate improvement, but most importantly I know what to work on now. The source of my putting woes -- especially on those 3-4 footers -- was previously a mystery to me.

I also changed from a 35 inch Odyssey Marxman putter to a 33 inch Yes! club. I'm enjoying the simplicity of a blade putter, and the shorter cub seems to suit me better.
