The 'easiest' way to lower your golf score is with your putter...use my method to read the green...it works!
Larry, just got your book yesterday and only had about 20 minutes to read it before playing 9 holes. Wow, after a few holes, I was looking at a 30 footer and using your method rolled in my best one-putt of the year! Played another round in the evening and shot my season best round using your putting technique, 4 one-putts on 9 greens! Feels great! Thanks! --- Jamie, Canada, August 2012
Scotland..."Larry, I love this little book! On Saturday, I single-putted the last 5 greens to shoot a 71 and win the competition! On Sunday, 25 putts for a 76! Windy day, but only 2 strokes away from best gross in a field of 300+ competitors! --- Peter Royce, Scotland
Peter Royce of Scotland..."Research into the development of our Pro-Putt Laser Trainer included the influential text of Larry Stanley's book, The Putting Edge; Dave Pelz, The Putting Bible; and the METHODS of putting Guru's Geoff Mangum, Dr. Harold Swash, & Todd Sones. All advocate an "In-line Putting Stroke” ...straight back, straight through —a stroke driven by the shoulders with no wrist or hand action." This award winning innovative training aid is used in Swash Golf Schools throughout the world.

- The 114 Foot Putt(s)!
High School and College Golfers
The 114 Foot Putt(s)...!!! May be the longest putt in any competition!
Chris Stanley and Larry Stanley
During a 3-day Golf Fest, Sacramento Radio Station KHTK Sports Talk 1140 sponsored a long-putt contest featuring a grand prize of $5,000! The length of the putt: a incredible 114.0 feet...about one-third the length of a football field! Drove to the 'Fest'...left my putter in my car & walked quite a distance to observe the contest...the artificial putting surface was about 10 feet wide and elevated on the right side creating a break of about 6 feet, right-to-left! Not wanting to trek back to my car, I decided to borrow one of their 'loaner' putters. On my 3rd or 4th try, I was the first to ace their difficult 114-foot putt! Returned home...hearing about my long putt during dinner plus the mention of the $5,000.00 prize, my son Chris was eager to compete. Sure enough, the next morning, he also aced the long putt after about four attempts! Of course, using the method from my book! After the first day, we were the first two contestants to ace the putt. Thought we may be splitting $5,000; however, in order to win the Grand Prize, one finalist would have to ace another 114 foot putt on the last day of the event. After hundreds of competitors, there were only 6 that aced the putt and each of us would have one attempt at acing another 114 foot putt. I wish I could tell you that one of us won the grand prize, but no one made the final ace...it was just a very difficult putt! I was very proud that my son did come the closest, within 4-5 inches of winning the grand prize...edging out his dad, of course. What are the chances of a father and son being the first two contestants to ace the same 114-foot putt out of hundreds of contestants? We had the EDGE...The Putting Edge! --- Author Larry Stanley

THE IMPORTANCE OF PUTTING from one of golf's greats... "Putting is the final determinant of your score on every hole...a missed putt is a mistake from which you cannot recover...putting theoretically is half the game." ---Jack Nicklaus (Jack Nicklaus: My Story -Simon & Schuster, 1999).
Studies have proven that just a 10% improvement in your putting will affect your score more dramatically than a 10% improvement in either your driving distance or any other part of your game. Putting is easier than driving the golf ball and doesn't have to be a complex set of scientific events. The Putting Edge simplifies the putting process for you and will make you the best putter in your foursome!
TESTY GREENS...Many many thanks for your book Larry. It is a total winner and I appreciated the quick shipment. Testy greens on Fota Island course in Cork, Ireland but I am sure I took off at least five shots thanks to your book!!! Many, many, thanks again! Deric, Ireland
CAN'T WAIT...Cumbria, U. K, March 2006..."Hi Larry, just a quick bit of feedback. I managed 9 holes after work last night with my regular playing partner, we haven't played for 2 weeks as the weather in Cumbria, UK has been pretty bad. Anyway, using your method for the first time I one-putted 3 of the first 4 greens! Furthermore, I only three-putted once. I can't wait for my next round to keep the momentum going, my putting felt really confident last night." ---Respect, Craig, Modesto, CA.
About the Author (excerpt)...Back in 1966, I learned a new method for reading my line of putt, the Plumb Bob. My putting improved immensely and I would compete and win various putting competitions and events over the years. Each time I competed in the Annual Sacramento County Putting Championships in Sacramento, California, I was in the top 3 finishers. In 1996, I competed in the World Putting Championship's Regional putting contest at the NorthStar at Tahoe GC...most every putt in their 18 hole competition was a difficult breaking putt and as an amateur I bested all competitors including two golf professionals that were competing and crowned NorthStar's Putting Champion! After winning that eveny, I wrote, "The Putting Edge...How To One-Putt Every Green!" so that I could share my methods with other golfers. Putting well should not be a complicated process...my putting methods simplify the putting process! The Putting Edge will show you how to determine your absolute target-line..."Read your line, take your stance, putt the ball...Ace The Putt!" It’s that simple! The Putting Edge will make you the "Best Putter In Your Foursome!"
