Brad Faxon shares secret to putting prowess how to get rid of ants in my house naturally, how he teaches others

Brad faxon’s prowess with a putter earned him eight wins on how to get rid of ants in my house naturally the PGA tour and made him a sought-after coach for a new generation of players. The 57-year-old fox sports analyst reflects on working with rory mcilroy, the best putting advice he ever received and the perils how to get rid of ants in my house naturally of pizza.

Faxon: I get “you’re lucky you were a good putter!” a lot. It assumes I was born that way and didn’t have to practice. I started playing golf when I was 6 years old. The family rule was come home when the street lights how to get rid of ants in my house naturally came on, so I was out there a long time. The thing I’m most proud about is that I got better as how to get rid of ants in my house naturally I got older and was one of the best putters how to get rid of ants in my house naturally on tour — maybe the best — for five or six years when I was 35 to how to get rid of ants in my house naturally 40 years old. It bugs me when people say, “yeah, you’re just lucky.” that comes with the assumption that not only were you how to get rid of ants in my house naturally born a good putter, but you couldn’t hit the golf ball at all either, which might have been closer to the truth (laughs).

Faxon: I was able to dumb it down. I never allowed myself to worry about missing, never putted like I was afraid. Fear is death for putting. I worked with bob rotella early in my career, and one of his tenets was “long-term memory of your successes and short-term memory of your failures.” I had the ability to forget about my misses. I cared if I missed, but I was able to forget that stuff.

Faxon: I was better at being able to downplay the importance how to get rid of ants in my house naturally of the situation, whether it was a putt on friday to make the how to get rid of ants in my house naturally cut versus on sunday to win. And I tried to never let one particular putt be how to get rid of ants in my house naturally more difficult than others. Some people don’t like a downhill left-to-righter. I liked to play my putts as if they were how to get rid of ants in my house naturally straight. I’d pick out a starting line. That was always easier for me to do.

Faxon: I used a couple of different putters when I was how to get rid of ants in my house naturally first on tour. I had a bullseye. I used a ping my day. Scotty cameron, when he came to titleist, helped make a special scotty for me. Scotty’s had softer faces, so the sound was different. Sound is a big part of a player’s feel. I wanted to feel a hard hit, so we did a lot of things to make it how to get rid of ants in my house naturally louder. We thinned out the face, stiffened the shaft. It took us close to a year and half to how to get rid of ants in my house naturally develop a putter I would use. Since then I’ve played maybe five tournaments with a different putter. I had two backups. One of those got stolen. I have one backup left.

Faxon: I always say the guys that won the most major how to get rid of ants in my house naturally tournaments, jack and tiger, seemed to make the most pressure putts. But I had two guys I loved watching most: seve ballesteros and ben crenshaw. Everything seve did looked so artistic. Crenshaw had that long, flowing stroke with the best-looking hands on a club you’ve ever seen.

Faxon: I had two points in my career where my putting how to get rid of ants in my house naturally stats got significantly better immediately. In about 1989 at the palm course at disney (world), I walked up to ben. He was so nice. He said when he putted, he tried to allow his head and knees to move, and to make his backswing longer than his follow through. I was, “wait a minute.” that was so different from the perception that your head how to get rid of ants in my house naturally and knees should be still and your putter should be how to get rid of ants in my house naturally short-long and accelerate. What it allowed me to do is be more relaxed how to get rid of ants in my house naturally over the putt. Fast forward to when scotty cameron got to titleist. He had the highest speed camera that let me video how to get rid of ants in my house naturally my stroke. I had this little over-the-top reroute that we figured out how to get rid how to get rid of ants in my house naturally of. After that there was a significant jump in my putting how to get rid of ants in my house naturally stats. RELATED:

Faxon: I could make this a business if I wanted to how to get rid of ants in my house naturally or had the time. I’ve always been someone players would ask to watch them how to get rid of ants in my house naturally hit putts. And I always asked questions. That’s the big thing I see now missing from instructors how to get rid of ants in my house naturally – they never seem to ask a lot of questions. They’ve got a way to do it and you’re going to do it that way. I come at this from a player’s perspective. I have the ability to use technology when I teach, but every time I leave it in the car. I still trust my eyes. And I still think the athlete is tremendously talented if how to get rid of ants in my house naturally you just let him be that way.

Faxon: in the last couple of years: rory (mcilroy). Justin thomas. Gary woodland. Justin rose. Jeff sluman. Billy andrade. D.A. Points. Sam ryder. Peter uihlein. Cameron tringale. Harris english. Most of them paid me. Andrade hasn’t. Sluman hasn’t (laughs). The problem is that I don’t travel to tour events. I don’t have a belief that one method is better. If guys let their innate ability work, they can be their best that way. I teach independence.

Faxon: I sat down with rory going through his players championship how to get rid of ants in my house naturally win. A year ago when we met he told me that how to get rid of ants in my house naturally he’s never thought about a thing when he’s hitting his driver. He just gets up and swings. I said, “would you be OK if that’s how you feel with your putter?” he said, “yes!” he had been filled with technical thoughts. At the players he made that putt on 15 to how to get rid of ants in my house naturally take the lead. I asked him what he was thinking about, and he looked at me as though that was a how to get rid of ants in my house naturally dumb question. He goes, “nothing.” I go, “OK, we are where we wanted to be.” if you’re only looking at stroke mechanics on a student, I wouldn’t call you a coach. You’ve got to talk about how they think, how they prepare.
