TEMPER OPTIMISM; TEND TO PESSIMISM NORTH

Gladys Bronwyn Stern, a British author and critic who died in 1973, wrote, “Both WEST AJ EAST
optimists and pessimists contribute to our society. The optimist invents the airplane; and K972 985 Q 10 8
the pessimist, the parachute.” 752 AQ9863 Q 10 9 6
J643 KQ
A bridge player should be pessimistic unless he needs to be lucky to make or break the J5 SOUTH 10 7 4 2
contract. How would that approach help South in this deal? He is in three no-trump, A653
and West leads a fourth-highest spade two. Declarer tries dummy’s jack (in the hope K843

South might have responded one heart, but with game-forcing values he was right to
keep all of the suits in play. Six or seven diamonds might have been the best contract if Dealer: North; Vulnerable: Neither
North had a minor two-suiter. North’s two-club rebid guaranteed at least a six-card suit
and denied a four-card major. South bid what he hoped he could make. The Bidding:

Declarer starts with seven top tricks: one spade, two hearts, one diamond and three SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
clubs. After taking the spade ace on the third round of the suit, the optimist unblocks his 1 Clubs Pass
club king, plays a heart to dummy’s ace, then cashes the club ace and queen. However, 1 Diamonds Pass 2 Clubs Pass LEAD:
when West discards on the third club, the contract can no longer be made. Yes, if clubs Pass Pass 2 Spades
are 3-3, South wins 10 tricks, but that is against the odds. 3 NT Pass

The pessimist sees that he needs only five club winners, not six. He overtakes his king
with dummy’s ace and cashes the queen, happy to see the jack appear from West.
Declarer drives out the club 10 and claims. Note, though, that he also succeeds if clubs
are 3-3, just not with an overtrick.

3. Swing Itself. I can’t encourage you
enough to become a swinger of your put-

pendulum putting. Avoid being a pop
putter or hitting the ball. Swing your arms
and putter and allow the ball to get in the
way of the swing.

4. Set-up Fundamentals. Place the ball
1 inch inside your left heel, good posture
with the weight on the balls of your feet.
Bend from your hips and place your butt
out, just like in the full swing. Arms hang-
ing freely from your shoulders, with just
a slight amount of angle in both elbows.
Place your eyes directly over the ball. The
wrists should arch up slightly with both
thumbs running straight down the flat
part of the grip. Place the grip in the life-
line of each hand. Both V’s of each hand
should point to each cheek of your face.
Also the alignment process: five lines of
alignment -- target line, ball line, putter
face line, toe line and ball position line.
The five lines form an “H” pattern.

5. Type of putter. I would encourage a
face-balanced, mallet-style putter. Also,
please have your putter fitted to ensure
that the lie angle, loft of the clubface and
shaft length are optimal.
