This information may be a little too far advanced for our friends on Wrx having a difficult time figuring out what indeed Wrx. :lol:


That's a good one there Rat. I like the tip about forcing yourself almost violently to stay in the white (above the line).

Glad you enjoyed it Porsche-Man. I enjoy Mr. Burke also, and have learned more about putting since watching and listening to one of the best than ever before. I still have a few Doug Sanders moments, but they're becoming less frequent. :lol:

One thing I absolutely love about Burke is his practice routine that keeps his mind occupied with enjoyment instead of work. He picks 3 lines for each cup, a high line, which would be the slowest- like a putt going into the side of the hole- a more direct putt center cup hit a little firmer, then to one that starts center and just falls into the low side. So in effect, what he's doing is creating a path into the cup which is 1/4 of the cup's circumference, or a quadrant shape, just like having strike access to only the inside quadrant of the ball on an iron shot. I think the cup actually gets wider doing that- 3 ways in. I'll put up a picture of it when I get the chance.

Been busy, but have some more stuff from Mr. Burke in mind when time allows. :)

Whatever happened to rotary-dial desk phones.


Amazing body of work from Mr. Burke and a message that just simply got better with age, line a fine wine.

Whatever happened to milk chutes.

Words from Mr. Burke Jr. that Lag speaks often about too- body cohesiveness through the entire swing, no disconnected parts, everything working as one, putting a big bunch of mass into ball and ground. When the entire club goes properly into the ground is what Mr. Burke calls "springing the shaft".


This may be a little to advanced for our friends on QuirxWRX :lol: who are still trying to decide if Ben Hogan and Bryon Nelson knew what they were talking about when claiming Mickey Wright had the greatest golf swing.

This is why I like telephone pole level stiffness now...it's like Goldilocks, you gotta get it "just" right.
