"The tempo and the rhythm of a physical pendulum does not change because you change the size of the swing. What changes with the size of the swing is the impact velocity at the bottom of the swing, where the peak velocity is expressed right through the bottom of the tick-tock."
- Geoff Mangum, Putting Theorist
Geoff Mangum (T - @geoffmangum FB - geoff.mangum) is a Putting Theorist. If you're wondering why he is a 'Theorist' and not a coach, instructor, or guru you will have to listen to this episode to find out. If you haven't heard of Geoff I wouldn't be surprised if you struggle with your putting because he is the most knowledgeable person on the planet when it comes to putting.
He is the author of the book "Optimal Putting: Brain Science, Instincts, and the Four Skills of Putting"
Part of what makes him so knowledgeable is he turns over every stone to continue his learning. Whether it's a new putter, training device, way of reading greens, stroke theory or something else he will study it to the end. This is probably where he has rubbed the establishment the wrong way in that he has challenged the 'old' way of teaching putting and some are put off by his methods and presentation.
There is one thing for certain...he knows putting. Whether you like him or loathe him you cannot deny his knowledge and because of that he has my utmost respect.
There was so much information we tried to pack into today's show and we only scratched the surface. I'm sure Geoff will have to come back so we can dive deeper into putting. Today's was the starting point so I trust you enjoy our conversation.
