Overview

The award-winning Golf Channel instructor and host of The Golf Fix revives a long-lost technique for adjusting your putter's loft, with winning results.

Acclaimed instructor Michael Breed resurrects the crucial lessons of negative loft-3 degrees of it, to be precise-and shows how it can revolutionize any player's short game.

Drawn from years of self-funded technical research, The 3-Degree Putting Solution presents the key to fixing putting woes once and for all. The secret is to change the loft on the putter face from 4 degrees of positive loft (as conventional wisdom dictates) to a negative loft of 3 degrees. The result? Backspin is greatly reduced, ensuring a more consistent speed and a "truer" roll. And by leaning the putter shaft forward, golfers can all but eliminate the ball's pesky air jump immediately after impact.

Shrinking the chance of error on each putt, Breed has perfected the 3-Degree technique to incorporate optimal grip, posture, and alignment, as well as intuitive skills such as mental conditioning and how to read the green. This breakthrough guide offers practice drills with dozens of photographs and illustrations, making the 3-Degree technique a powerful lesson in shaving crucial points off your score. Giving readers access to the proven wisdom of a world-class instructor, The 3-Degree Putting Solution is sure to spark new dialogues on how to putt like a pro.

    Putters Should Heed Breed

    Who would have thought a high-energy, rapid-fire guy like Michael Breed would have the patience for scientific research? Yet that's just exactly what he did to confirm his approach to the putting stroke. The results are in Breed's latest book, The 3-Degree Putting Solution: The Comprehensive, Scientifically Proven Guide To Better Putting. The Sunningdale CC head pro and Golf Channel star wrote the book with John Steinbreder.

    After a personal epiphany on the practice green, Breed spent years teaching his pupils to change their stroke to take the putterface from the normal positive loft to a negative one. That, he knew, would eliminate backspin and produce a truer roll. He based his approach on years of practice and observation with hundreds of pupils as well as his studies of putting greats like Dave Stockton, Billy Casper, and Horton Smith. Recently he funded research into the question by a golf lab in Dallas and determined that the optimum face angle for a putt is three degrees of negative loft. His book details that research while providing much, much more useful information for the golfer serious about improving his performance on the green.

    Breed provides a comprehensive guide to grip, posture, alignment, club path, and tempo as well as putterface angle. He also talks about mental conditioning and reading greens. With dozens of practice drills and 150 instructional photos, the book is a comprehensive guide to success with the flat stick.
