Breakthrough Putting Techniques: Discover the Magic of Audio Golf


Three-putts and unnecessary two-putts can quickly ruin your golf score. The best defense against them is good distance control. However, what sounds simple usually requires extensive practice. Achieving precise distance control often requires developing a “feel” that can only be internalized through repetition. Today, I want to introduce you to a technique that allows you to gain this feel in just a few minutes.

Putting – We’re Worse Than We Think

Even a tour professional only holes half of their putts from a distance of 8ft. For a player with an 18 handicap, the probability of success from that distance drops to just 27%. Therefore, a safety-first approach should be taken on longer putts, ensuring that the ball can be holed in the next stroke.

Feel is the Solution, but It’s Difficult

To achieve this consistency, good distance control is essential. Being able to consistently get the ball close to the hole can prevent costly three-putts and occasionally lead to holing out on the first putt. However, this requires the ability to play the exact distance on demand, relying on one’s “swing feel.” Unfortunately, this feeling only develops after many repetitions. The reality is that many golfers find putting practice boring and prefer to spend their time on the driving range. Therefore, you can’t always rely on this feeling.

The Mind Plays a Role – Especially on “Simple” Shots

Moreover, this feeling can quickly waver under pressure. What worked in practice may not work in the actual game. Simple shots, such as a 3ft putt, can create so much mental pressure that you might mess up the stroke – because these putts are “supposed to be easy.”

Sound Patterns as a Solution?

Audio Golf offers a completely new solution. Instead of boring putting drills, you are provided with specific sound patterns for the most important distances to the hole. When you think of these patterns during your stroke, you automatically play the corresponding distance for which the pattern was made. To simplify, Audio Golf’s inventor, Professor Chia Chou of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, compares his technique to running and dancing. Here, the body moves unconsciously in sync with the music. With their sounds, the same happens, but tailored to the desired swing movement. To explore the scientific principles, delve into the concept of “sonification.”

The advantage of this technique is that distance control becomes much more tangible. Instead of painstakingly training the feeling, you can now rely on different sound patterns. After just a few repetitions, if your swing movement is in sync with the sound, the rhythm, length of the backswing, and tempo to the ball are all correct, and the ball consistently covers the right distance. Additionally, the sound blocks out all other thoughts at the crucial moment, so that neither frantic technical considerations nor thoughts of fear occur.

Improve Your Putting Instantly

One example to try is the “ya-la-bam” sound. During your backswing, think “ya-la” to control its length. Then, during the swing toward the ball, think “bam” to control its speed. The ratio of “ya-la” to “bam” determines the putt’s rhythm, typically a 2:1 ratio commonly used by tour players. The backswing duration is twice as long as the time it takes to strike the ball. You can get the idea by watching this video:

If you attempt this sound without aiming, you’ll notice your balls consistently stop at a certain distance, typically around 12 to 15 feet for most golfers. And that’s after just a few minutes, without much practice.

Does This Sound Familiar?

Even though this technique may sound a bit crazy at first, some may feel they already know it. I’m referring to tricks like “Coca-Cola,” “One Thousand and One,” or “1-2-3-1,” which are also thought during the swing movement. However, it’s essential to differentiate here because these methods solely aim to achieve a fixed swing rhythm. In contrast to Audio Golf, these methods do not offer differentiated tempo control and are inflexible. Different golfers have to adjust to one rhythm, and the length of the backswing still has to be controlled by themselves.
