From the Back Cover
"The man who can put is a match for anyone." -- Willie Park Jr., Two-time British Open champion Most golfers know the truth in that statement. Good putting can salvage a round of indifferent play from the tee and fairway or, conversely, faulty putting can ruin a great round of ball striking. Despite its apparent simplicity and humble exterior, putting might be the most difficult aspect of golf to master. When you think back to your best rounds, it is likely that your putting fueled your success; you made everything in sight and it seemed easy. Unfortunately, for most amateurs those days are few and far between. But there is no reason why it has to be that way. In Lights-Out Putting: A Mind, Body, and Soul Approach to Golf's Game Within the Game, Todd Sones--ranked as one of the top 100 teaching professionals in America by Golf Magazine--shares his secrets to success on the green. Sones has used the instruction offered on the pages of this book with amateur students as well as PGA Tour players. Lights-Out Putting teaches not just the proper fundamentals but also the mindset of a great putter--a lights-out putter. It teaches you how to enjoy the task of putting and to shift your focus toward the many putts you make in a given round--not the ones that lip out or go screaming past the hole. In this book you will learn the elements of a proper setup and--more important--the intangible asset known as feel, which enables a player to consistently gauge how hard or soft to hit a given putt. Sones also covers topics such as how to find the right putter for your setup, reading greens, prestroke routine and strategy, tactics, and practice drills. Beautifully illustrated with instructional photographs and sidebars, this complete book on putting will help all readers--from scratch player to high handicapper--develop their most critical ingredient to lower scoring.

----------- "Lights-Out?"........... More like 'Lights-On' in my case. And, the author wrote it in such a simple and easy to understand style. Says so much with an economy of words. This is good writing, good teaching, the final word on putting in my relatively learned opinion.
If you wan't to learn how to master the mind's game of golf forget about this book too and get "zen golf" (which is very good and intelligent). Peltz might be an alternative if you can stand his manic habit of endlessly repeting himself (which I can't)...
