The Long View of Improved Putting.

Foreword by David Feherty

Glenn Apple and Chip Heyl, the capable and persevering authors, have put together an enjoyable text for users of the long putter, who as everyone knows, have been mentally unbalanced by the game of golf. Glenn Apple is an exceptional player, recording numerous amateur wins with the long putter. Chip Heyl was a professional analyst and a competitive amateur golfer. Both bring their unique talents to the analysis and technical report that follows.

The first edition was a groundbreaking work, written when use of the long putter was declining. The authors correctly perceived that, along with the fact that at the time a long putter made people feel like lepers, a lack of information on the new tool was a reason for waning interest.

Thankfully, the information gap has closed since the first edition. A check of sites on the World Wide Web lists many references to the long putter, and for the particularly twisted, a number of these sites are listed in the bibliography.

My friend, Sam Torrance, and his many admirers keep the long putter alive and well on the European circuit. (In fact, Sam keeps his in a jar of formaldehyde.) In the same manner, Peter Senior influenced its use on the increasingly competitive Australasian Tour. Bruce Lietzke, Scott McCarron, Rocco Mediate and Vijay Singh have been successful with the long putter on the PGA Tour.

As the authors point out, using the long putter is not difficult. Anyone who can throw a ball without falling down is an excellent candidate for the long putter. With the knowledge and techniques in this book, the long putter becomes a valuable tool for the golfer.
