What if you could get detailed insights from one of the nation’s top putting instructors in the comfort of your own home, or even in the palm of your hand?
Now you can with the recent launch of Pat O’Brien’s blog. As of yesterday, one of Pat’s clients, Vaughn Taylor, is just one shot behind at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. And you may have heard of another of his clients, Masters champion Zach Johnson. O’Brien is also a consultant to the SeeMore Putter Company.
O’Brien’s blog features instructional tips, putting drills and putting theory, as well as personal news from the PGA tour. One recent post talks about the importance of maintaining a level spine at address, while another offers insights into grip mechanics.
Longtime readers of PutterZone.com are familiar with Pat O’Brien via our 2007 interview with him. His story is rather remarkable—he was a neighbor and childhood friend of Nathaniel Crosby (son of Bing), who introduced him to the late, great Payne Stewart, who also became a friend. O’Brien was there when Stewart conducted a putting performance for the ages to win the 1999 U.S. Open with a SeeMore putter and…well, you see where this is headed. Seven years later, O’Brien watched his own student, Zach Johnson, win the Masters with, yes, a SeeMore putter.
O’Brien’s blog ultimately offers unprecedented access to tour-level putting instruction. Check it out at www.patobriengolf.com.
