How Important Are Putting statistics??

Putting is often talked about as being the most important aspect of golf. It is said so often that many people say it without truly believing it.

If I was to guess what percentage of lessons I do are putting lessons I would guess somewhere around 5%.

Usually the golfer will say at the start of a lesson that they would like to improve their driving accuracy or distance. Others may want to improve their ball striking with their irons.

As fulfilling as it is to strike the ball better or possibly even straighter or further this doesn’t necessarily mean your score will be lower. If you were to average 3 less putts per round, your score will be 3 shots lower on average. It sounds simple when I say it like that.
