Look & Shoot Book Review

From the desk of: Cameron Strachan (author)

Dear Golfer,

As a full disclosure I wrote the Look and Shoot Putting book way back in 2004. So this is sort of a review but more of a sharing some of the feedback I receive - some case studies if you will.

And while I do get the occasional poor review/comment, most of the feedback I get is amazing. But first, some of the poor feedback.

Some golfers have told me, "It's the worst book I've ever read" and others have told me with quite a bit of passion that, "it hasn't helped one bit" and another guy has called me an "asshole".

It's funny how one little book can upset a few. I am also amused at some of the comments I see on Facebook - people telling me the book is a scam and "rubbish" etc. These people obviously have superpowers because they know what's inside the book without reading it.

And I want to add here, that the ideas presented are not for everyone. The concepts move away from traditional technical instructions and help you adopt a more natural and instinctive way to learn the art of putting. If you are expecting some earth-shattering tip or technical quick fix then you'll be disappointed. And if this sounds like you, please don't buy the book.

One more thing: I get that it can be uneasy purchasing things straight from the Internet. You don't know me and the default position of many is, "this is a scam".

It's for this reason, if you buy the book I offer a no BS 14 day money back guarantee. This is my way of sharing the risk. And, there's no scam going on. In fact, I do my best to help all clients get more fun and satisfaction from their putting game.

I also do my best to respond to all email questions. This is getting harder and harder with the amount of email I receive, but I do not outsource this job. It's too important to leave to anyone.

You can read some of the random emails/thoughts/comments/testimonials I have received below. If you'd like to see the updated list, you can view this page.

Simple Advice

Hi Cameron, I’ve played three rounds since reading your e-book and have had a noticeable improvement in my putting - my playing partners have even commented. Yesterday had the first round I can remember without a three putt.
I’ll continue to follow your simple but effective advice.



The BEST way ...

... I went to the putting green and went back to my old routine, that you verified was the BEST way to putt, and am happy to say that all those notions of looking at the hold from every angle and lining up the ball with a line, which was totally uncomfortable to me, and all the thinking, went totally out the window and I was back to being a good putter.  Was making everything I looked at.

Thank you again.  It was as if fate brought you and your book to me.  I will be singing your praises!

Letha Davis


Tried so many things ...

I have noticed a massive improvement in my whole game not just my putting. I was steadily blowing my handicap outward until my wife bought me ur Look and Shoot e book (I may have hinted I wanted it lol). The process has helped me relax with unfamiliar players and just play. My last four rounds have been under my handicap which has already dropped two shots since I got ur book. What’s really surprised me is the lag putts I am making that I normally wouldn’t, and how consistent my full swing is getting. Thanks so much I’ve tried so many different things (hundreds) I don’t feel like I need to tinker any more, just keep going with what I’ve got.

Hi Cameron, Just a little feedback...
I have been studying you book for two weeks now and I find it fascinating.
 Some background..currently 18 HC lowest 14...61 years young and very close to calling it a day due to a shit short game chipping & putting.
But .... golf is all about confidence and when you are standing over a 100 yard approach or a 6 foot putt and your overriding thought is... I have no confidence in what happens next...outcome predictable. Disaster.

I have invested some time in the process and although I have only scratched the surface...this feels like total sense. Result...played in club 4B competition with my long time buddy yesterday. Strong opposition and we would not have been expected to win, which was borne out at 3 down after 4. I was trying to apply your process to my game period and the effect was extraordinary. Firstly no nerves at all... was able to totally park a bad shot and move on. We turned at 3 down thanks to a great par from my buddy on the par 5 ..9th . We had a quick calm chat on the 10th we had hung in for 9 so let's go after it on the back nine. Fast forward to 18 I had 8ft putt to half the match. Rolled the ball into the middle of the hole and I am sure I would not have made that putt a week previous.
On to the 20th hole  my buddy on in 2 and I am in the greenside bunker for 3 ...40 feet to the pin I'm up ...in the zone and I holed it! Match over. Incredible. Buddy pissed he didn't get to make it his birdie putt...but absolutely elated. 
Summary.... this works and can't wait to dig deeper and develop this process.
A bit long winded, but I am enthused  to play again.. and improve.
So thanks for the kick start..

You must have been on the golf course watching me yesterday - I did not wipe a hole but had 11 one pointers - all through putting issues. So I read your quick guide this morning and was just about to move on to the full version when your email arrived - it encapsulates just about everything I was going through. From being around 30 putts a round in November to 40+ in the last 6 rounds (I play 3 times a week) my initial analysis is that I did not have any opportunity to actually practice (except on my lounge room carpet), so now I will aim to try out your suggestions. I had transitioned from a broomstick putter which had been extremely successful in lowering my handicap to A grade, to a short putter which I learned to use effectively, but suddenly sinking the 2 metre putts disappeared. Even reverting to the long putter only helped for a couple of rounds and even that has fallen by the wayside. At my age (73) good putting is the only way I can maintain a 12-13 handicap, so I will let you know how well your coaching goes with me - it worked years ago when you first offered advice.

- Paul Korbel

Since following your programme I joined a month ago my last 3 gross rounds have been -3, level, -2 with 31- 31- 30 putts per round. A big improvement on what came before and as a 64 year old 3 handicapper i can’t tell you how delighted I am - wish I’d found the method 50 years ago

- Ian Smyth

Hey Cameron,

Just wanted to pass on a little THANKS. I got home yesterday after playing in a quarter final for the club championship in my social golf club.

Still using your “Look and Shoot” putting method as well as working on eliminating my “Pesky” thoughts towards my automatic swing, I achieved the following.

In the quarter final match play round I had to give my opponent 7 shots. The final result was I defeated him 5&4, along the way I shot my best round in 12 months with a scratch score of 87. (par 70) Breaking 90 has been a long held goal on mine. I also won the putting contest with 28 putts (including 1 dreaded 3 putt).

I am not a person that likes to blow my horn and I sure hope this doesn’t come across that way. The aim of this email is to highlight what I thought was at first read, a far too simple way to improve my golf.

I had to stop part way through the book and go back to the start before it started to sink in.

It is a simple way to improve, but it also works as long as you work at it.

- Paul Sillitoe.

Cameron To be honest I was a very poor putter.
Spent a lot of time pontificating before I executed the putt and with poor results.
I have since stepped up to the mark and got my natural senses to work and putted and with instant success. I am not perfect but the improvement has been significant

- David

Your book actually mirrors thoughts that I have had recently about my whole game as I get older (73). I have found myself getting more and more “rigid “as I try to implement all the lessons I have had to play the “proper”way 
It is refreshing to be allowed to let the mind and body take over
Thanks for your book

- Jeff Jarman

I got your putting book a couple of weeks ago and my putting has improved.  I rarely 3 putt anymore and I even sank a 60 ft putt last week.

- Craig Lungwitz

My putting has really improved using your Look and Shoot putting method. I used to routinely have 35-40 putts per round and my last three times I've played I had 29, 30, and 27 putts with only 1 3 putt.

- Mike Drew

Hey Cameron,

My putting has definitely improved using your methods. Still trying to commit to the routine and letting it go.
It’s not automatic yet, especially under pressure, but it works more often than not.
I’m convinced it’s the way forward, so I’ll keep at it. Thanks again for all your help. Regards,

- Peter Gibson

Hi Cameron, took Look and Shoot theory to the course yesterday...
My three-putt tally dropped dramatically and my playing partners were
somewhat bemused by my new-found "form".
Will be getting stuck into the drills as often as I can.
Thanks heaps,

- Alan D

I truly believe your system makes so much sense so hoping I can do it justice ...

- Sue Donnellan

Hi Cameron, Have had 3 rounds with new technique. Yesterday's round was the best so far...some good long putts....my short putts are also improving. Of course...I've done some ordinary putts but overall I am happy with the results to date.
Will keep it going!

- Steve (UK)

Amazing! First day out trying the new method I shot 75 with 25 putts and 50% GIR so I was stoked. So easy to do and all my thinking of mechanics are gone. It’s good stuff Cameron!

- Brad Bosh (USA)

I say this as a psychologist ... you may be onto something

- Peter

I bought your system the other day and took it to the course today .

The results were great . My faith in the unconscious is going to take practice but I hit some very good putts and my rhythm and flow were much improved .

- Denis Durkin

Hi Cameron,

I'm not normally one to write emails but just wanted to let you know I tried your putting technique for the first time today in a round and had 27 putts.

27 putts is fantastic for me and although having a little trouble on really long putts my short putting was unbelievable.

Just wanted to say thank you, it certainly made putting enjoyable for me today. I've never trusted my stroke so much as what I did today.

Keep up the good work and thanks again.


- Matt Brain

I started really well. In fact, one of my partners commented that he noticed I had made a change and it reminded him of how Aaron Badds putts!

- David Webster

Loving it. Taking it in slowly, just like my game. I think it is going to be a good thing to play free of some many thoughts. 

All the best

- Bert Perey

My son “Lucky” has been working your method for a couple of weeks now. He is 16 and currently one of the top players on his high school team. 

He looks much more comfortable in his routine and we have already noticed improvement in his lag putting. This week will be his first real test as his team has their first 2 day tournament on Friday and Saturday. I will provide an update then.


- Dan Livingston

Hi Cameron

I’ve seen a real improvement in putting overall particularly in getting long putts close enough to expect the next one to drop.

- Chris Martin

Hi Cameron,

I’ve only had one game since getting your ebook, I was definitely 3 putting a lot less.

- Gerard Mullen

Much better. no 3 putting yesterday got nearly all putts to the hole or just past.Will be happy if I just shave just another 4 putts off my round as I'm a 9 hcp. I'm sure if I keep using your method I won't be off 9 in a few weeks.

Thanks for your help..

- Geoff Davis

I’m a poster child for this book. I’m a weekend golfer, 40-45 rounds a year and typically shot in the low 80’s or broke 80 a few times a year. Never been a great putter but decent. Then, my putting went down the tubes. My score did as well. I regripped my putter and when that didn’t work I bought a new one. That didn’t help either. Putting is the stroke we overthink the most and it also has the most impact on our score. I read the book and it was immediately apparent that I was overthinking every aspect of my stroke. I’ve only been able to get 2 rounds in since the book but 3 putts are disappearing. 3-5 foot putts aren’t so intimidating. This a longer post then I intended but I’m a believer. Good luck out there

- Bill Fleming

Was made to tell my playing partners how come I was putting so well!

- Bernie M

Hi Cameron

Enjoyed reading your book and watching the video…Overall I am feeling a lot better about my putting simply because I am not over thinking it all.

I am using your techniques and they are working really well and it has reduced the number of 3 putts I have had in the last 5 rounds. What I am noticing though is finding is my conscious mind jumped in a couple of times to try and distract me…..This happened in my last round. So I will keeping working on that

Overall, I feel more confident, I am less stressed about my putting

- Reon Goodwillie

Hi Cameron
Thanks for reaching out. Enjoying listening to your podcasts too.
I have only play a few rounds on my own but the putting has been outstanding

- Rob K

Hi Cameron 
Since reading the book and listening to you simple advice, I have noticed a considerable improvement. Not so much in the results of holing longer putts but more so the less anxiety I’m feeling over all putts. Letting feel take over, not fear, and trust replace uncertainty seems to mean improvement to me. I’m actually looking forward to putting, not dreading.
I have not measured it yet but I have been holing the ones you should get in more cases, I have had less 3 putts, and the longer putts are being left nearer the hole and as a consequence easier to 2 putt.

It’s only early though and being a negative thinker and sceptical person let’s hope it continues. I will let you know

- Rob Tozer

Super short background...

I bought your book because years ago I remembered Aaron putting so quickly, so well. He made it look easy and uncomplicated.

When I received the book, I was interested to see how short it was and how straightforward it’s technique.

I’m a 6-handicap, but very average putter. I don’t really like putting. Because your technique is so simple, I used it confidently the first and only round I have played since learning it.

The result?...25 putts, including just 9 putts on the back nine!  I one-putted the first three holes and just started laughing; never had I “tried” so little and succeeded so much at putting.

- Rick Bragdon


I used your method in 3 rounds in last 7 days. I am amazed how much my putting has improved.  Great method. Even when I struggled on back nine. I did not quit your program. Hopefully good things to come.

Look and Shoot baby

- Bob

Hello Cameron, before reading your book I was a Good PUTTER now thanks to you I am more relaxed and have become an EXCELLENT PUTTER and am the envy of my friends.

I look forward to receiving your other book on general golf to further IMPROVE MY GAME.

- Dr. Mario

Hi Cameron,

  I have had some great short term results so far and I am sticking to your advice. Amazingly for me I have played 36 holes of golf and 11 holes last night at Yarrawonga and am yet to have a 3 putt. Funny last night my mate who plays off plus 3 said to me he can’t believe what I am doing ...

.. .I have not thought about one putt other than a short glance behind the ball

- Ken Stevenson

Cam, my putting is awesome mate.
Dropped a monster for eagle on Saturday and putted like a demon on Sunday too.
Think i only missed one inside 6 feet odd all weekend and lags were only a foot or so from the cup.
The putter is fxxxking awesome too

- Mike Clark (NZ)
