03 Aug My Favorite Putting Drill
The club-face at impact is also a very important element in putting, but we cannot achieve a consistently square strike without a repeating stroke.
To groove a putting stroke and help achieve the consistency all great putters have I like my students to work on the following drill
- Find a straight putt about Eight feet in length
- Lay your wedge on the green pointing at the right edge of the hole, with the grip end farther away from the hole
- Place the ball opposite the shaft label
- Roll putts towards hole keeping the toe of the putter as close to the shaft as you can without ever touching it.
- Repeat three balls at a time for ten minutes
Note: It is important to do the drill with a club on the ground as described. The tapering of the golf grip makes the putter swing back in a perfect little arc
