Tru-Vu: Change the Way You Look at Putting Forever

A Book About Golf, Life and How to Become a Good-to-Great Putter

by Scott Mitchum

Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book is based on the concept that a golfer should face the hole while putting, as opposed to the 500 year tradition of turning 90 degrees away from the hole, thus creating a visual disconnection. The author explains why traditional putting styles have failed to produce a single, lasting solution that works for all golfers. Based on research into vision as it applies to sports in general and golf in particular, the author argues that facing the target (the hole) creates an instinctive setup for maintaining the visual alignment of the putter before and during the stroke. Distance control is especially enhanced with the Tru-Vu putting style, as the mind's eye is more naturally able to build a mental image of the putt through visual saccades that lead up to the actual putting stroke.
Description
Golf is a tradition-bound sport that has forced golfers to not make the best use of their instinctive ability to aim the putterhead, as well as creating a visual disconnect that can seriously degrade distance control on putts over ten feet. Tru-Vu putting is based on the concept that the golfer should face the hole when putting, thus creating a simple, one-armed putting motion that is instinctive for both aim and distance control. The putter, nor the forearm, are braced against the body, which keeps it in line with the newest ruling by the USGA and R&A banning anchoring. Research into both visual and learning theory are used as background material to build the case that traditional putting styles are more difficult to master and seldom, if ever, create long-term putting success. The author explains the sequence of events that lead to the initial research into possible solutions to help his aging father cope with physical limitations, as well as his personal battle with multiple sclerosis for several years. His personal journey during the writing of the book is a vital part of the book as he describes the failures and success along the path to what has become a lifelong solution to his putting woes.
