This message is for anyone considering starting the Putting Clinic on September 2nd.

If your putting game is not where it should be then maybe it is time to do something about it. You could practice on your own and make up your own program but will you really do it? Probably not. Did you do so last month? Did you do so last year? Did it work? The odds are that putting is the weakest part of your game and will remain so unless you do something about it.

So why now and why this program? Now is better than later and much better than never. This program is an interactive, effective program that allows you to join other golfers (almost 100 are signed up so far) and go through the process together. I think you will find the group effort will increase your motivation. Greater motivation translates into greater success.

Very little is given away free in this lifetime. If you want confidence you cannot get it from any source or any person, you have to earn it. This putting program creates a structure where you will develop and retain real confidence. Not because someone gives it to you or by some mystical incantations but by earning it. A month from now you will be a much better putter.

You can view the video describing the clinic at Search for "Discraft putting clinic".

Enjoy the Labor Day weekend then join us on Tuesday. You can sign up at The signing up part is free.

Mark's Putting Confidence Program is active today. If you are interested but haven't registered yet, you may still do so up till midnight tonight. If you are thinking about it, try to get out and get your putting in today so you're on schedule. More details and sign up forms are on the Flying Disc magazine website now. You'll be better in 30 days, really! Lurkers welcome.

About 80 folks are chucking putts, working on their short games. The WEB PAGE ( has some expanded functionality now, so you can see who did and did not putt each day. Just click the PCP results link in the Play Better area.

Better putt, everyone can see if you don't! More enhancements coming soon.

We have updated the Putting Results Web Page ( so it's possible to see in calendar view an individual's progress with the program. Check it out and keep an eye on the participants. If someone hasn't done their putting, there's a comment wall to let them know about it!

This program is effective. Take it from someone who has choked on short putts for over twenty years of competition (and last week nailed every putt to win a regional event)!

one of the best thing i did for my putting was read Climo's web site about putting technique, it changed me from a fast spinning putter, to more of a low spin natural release putting straddle, i now with confidence make 40 footers...

One of the best things I've done this year is listen to Mark Ellis and warm up for every competitive round by taking nothing but 15-20 foot putts, a range I feel I can hit 100% of the time. This sort of warmup gives me confidence going into rounds. And really the difference between me making everything inside the circle and not is almost always confidence.
