It was great to see Graeme McDowell back in the winner’s circle on the PGA Tour with his one shot victory in the Corales Puntacana Championship. Playing on invites alone his future on the PGA Tour had been in question.

Not anymore!

Karl Morris started working with G-Mac again three weeks ago and it was clear after a long barren spell he had gotten away from many of the simple tools and techniques he had employed with Karl in the past.

By his own admission Graeme had got too bogged down with technical thinking and away from the Art of creating golf shots and more importantly creating putts.

In particular with his putting a simple pre shot breathing technique that frees him up to create putts had been lost in the attempts at technical perfection.

It is so easy when you are struggling with your game to disappear down a technique driven rabbit hole. Karl discussed some key ideas with Graeme about getting back to where he belongs at the top of the golfing tree.

In the third round of the PGA Tour Puntacana he had TWENTY putts!

A career best.

Setting himself up for a moving day round of 64

He had fourteen consecutive single putts.

The ball continually pouring into the hole with beautiful pace.

It was interesting to hear a baffled TV interviewer struggling to get to grips with how a simple breathing technique could have such a big effect on his results.

We pay so much attention to the minute of how to move the putter and so little attention to the way the mind works and how we need to embrace visualisation and creativity to ALLOW the body to do its work.

So much of what Karl and Graeme discussed is contained in ‘The Lost Art of Putting’ which has been the number 1 best seller on Amazon for the past five weeks.

Graeme’s win marks a good start to the year for Karl’s clients following Ryan Fox’s maiden European Tour win in Perth a month ago.
