Bob Labbe has combined his passion for golf, with his education in engineering to create a science-based technique to improve players golf game. In his new book “Putting by the Numbers,” Labbe provides a quantitative method of lag putting applicable for all golfers, whether recreational, amateur or professional.

Labbe introduces readers to the quantitative method. Created by his scientific evaluation of the game, the method is based upon science, including physics and engineering mechanics, but is simplified and reduced to an arithmetic method anyone can use, if capable of doing simple math in their head quickly.

“I have been using this method of long distance or lag putting for the last 25 years,” Labbe said. “The method is accurate, reliable and linear, allowing for very consistent and repeatable results.”

“Putting by the Numbers” features resources to help golfers of all skill levels improve their game. Additionally, readers can access on-course and in-home practice videos that fully demonstrates the method described in Labbe’s book.

No new equipment or change in your putting stroke is needed, just the willingness to practice in and around the putting green to develop your unique power factor to overcome the frictional surfaces encountered during play.
