To which Charlie replied, ‘No’. “So I showed him a face-on picture. And I said, ‘what do you think?’ And he goes. ‘It looks like I move forward. My chest kind of guides through the ball’ and, I go, ‘Yeah, it does a little bit.'”

“How would you change that?’ So in the next putt, he made a stroke and absolutely changed it 100%, and I showed it to him he was, ‘that’s better. I’m just gonna do that.’ I didn’t have to say a word. And it kind of reminds me of what the great players have inside of them is that it’s almost an innate ability to fix what’s going wrong while it’s happening.”
