I read a book about putting by a guy called Dave Pelz. Apparently he is good at what he does. The only thing I honestly remember is you should hit the ball 17 inches past the hole. Technically if the hole is in the way it falls in, but that’s how to judge how hard to hit it if it misses. He used a robot to prove the concept. Anything with robots will convince me. Except that vacuum robot. They’re silly.

Apart from that, I think you should miss “pro side”. I don’t know what it means but I sound knowledgeable when I say it.

Hello everyone.

My name is wOzz.

I have 6 putters.

Going back to the 1st nationals at the GC l was lost with my putting.

In the time since then, l have learn't a few things.

 

Get fitted for the putter.

It's the most used club in the bag.

 

The problem isn't the putter it's you.

 

Have putting lessons.

 

Practice your putting.

If you turn up and have a putt for 5 minutes before the round, that's not practice.

Putting practice is boring, l know.

 

With practice comes routine and an address position that works, repeatedly.

Your confidence, as a result will increase.

 

Silent wrists help over those knee trembling short putts.

 

Give yourself permission to hole EVERY putt.

 

PRACTICE , PRACTICE , PRACTICE.

This new job I have which was supposed to give me all the time in the world for golf but in reality has given less than ever has actually helped my putting.
A simple drill you can do at home on carpet is have a half blacked out ball and just hit 2/3/4/5 foot putts and make sure it rolls properly, if it stays on axis the stroke is good then you can worry about the line more.
My putting inside 6 feet has improved by 2-4 shots per round with this and it's very cheap and easy. I'll usually hit no less than 50 putts a day after work.

I'm hearing you Francie.

Between work and anniversaries and other stuff at home, 2017 has been terrible for playing OOM's.

I'm out for the last OOM as well, but by the skin of my teeth the Nationals are all good.

Brownman... after playing golf all my life i for some reason developed  the YIPS...suddenly i was missing 18 inch putts and its was nerve racking and embarrassing.

 

I saw my handicap slip and everytime i walked up to a short putt that moved left to right i was shitting my self.

 

Then one day i played with a blind guy who got set up by his wife on every shot. Whilst understandably he hit the ball all over the place the one thing he never missed was a short putt.. Why?? because if his stroke and alighment were true all he had to do was hit the ball....

 

This was a light bulb moment for me. When i got home i looked up the Jordan Speith no look putt and... i no longer yip...

 

I now set the putt up on the path i want move my head to look at the hole and stroke it. I now have no nerves and very seldom miss a short putt

 

Give it a go

Anybody got any gooooood help tips for a putting tragic......tried tic - toc method for a cuppla weeks,started out ok but  ,i must be ticking when tocking as its gone astray again.

Putting practice is boring. You have to find a way to make it enjoyable, which if you are putting poorly would be difficult. If you can practice with someone it helps, you can have putting challenges against each other with a prize at the end like beers or money or whatever. If alone you need to recreate the pressure during practice that you will have on course. I try to practice at my club putting green when I know I will have it to myself. I set out my course and I don't stop until I have 2 putted every hole with 2 balls. I then finish with 6 "for a point" putts from different positions, uphill, downhill and different breaks. I make these putts about 5 feet. If you tell yourself you are a bad putter then you will be. It is all about feel and distance control for me. I used to be a **** putter, but, now if I'm on the green I'm thinking of making the putt from anywhere.

I really liked this post. It motivated me. It brought me to the brink of almost wanting to practice putting. Serious praise indeed.

Hit it closer

chipping and putting woes do go hand in hand,when you yip with the putter,it puts greater demand on chipping,when my putting woes began,my chipping also became shite,NOW i dont care if i go 2ft past hole,im more confident that i can get return putt,"now" to resurrect my chipping,etc etc etc etc
