Putting is obviously the most rewarding and yet most frustrating part of this wonderful game!!!
I’ve been a great putter in the past and I’ve been lousy when I was trying too hard but now I feel finally like I understand how to hole it when you need it…
The main problem is trying too hard to hole putts instead of just lining up and letting go.
So here’s the process I recommend-
60% importance-Reading the line of the putt.
Take your time to calculate and visualise how your ball will travel across the green.
30% importance-Line yourself and the putter up correctly so that you FEEL like you can start your ball on the intended start line.
10% importance-Swing the putter freely rolling the ball with a speed that will take it 40cm past the hole(the distance proven to take more balls into the hole.)
And finally…….Hold the putter as lightly as possible at ALL TIMES!!!!
Putting is pure pleasure and if you’re not enjoying the process then you won’t hold the putts….TRUST ME!!!!
