Not everyone is a great putter. However, we can all learn to become better ones. Check out the tips below!

 

First of all, no need to change your putter. The familiarity of your current one can help to get better feel.

 

To improve your roll and get the ball started on the line of your choice, play it slightly forward of center in your stance and grip your putter with your palms facing each other, the left hand being lower than the right hand. This method can help you minimize any unwanted movement of the putterhead when making a stroke. It also helps to keep the face square more consistently.

 

Putting woes may be due to speed control, so try to spend some time to practice all kind of difficult putts every day. Many players spend lots of time practicing medium-length putts, but you may want to focus on your long-putt practice instead. You can try this exercise. Do a drill by laying a stick several feet behind the hole. If you hit the stick, try again. You can start with 15 feet, then move back 15 feet, until you get it right about 45 feet away. What you want is to roll it close (or make it), but not hit it too far past.

 

However, getting it close is only half of the task, if you want to avoid three-putts. You also need to make the short ones. To do this, try focusing on hitting the hold's dead center. In the back of the cup, insert a tee; do the same thing a few feet away as your starting point. You can try to hit 20 putts in a row that tap the tee before falling, which will help your focus and stroke. As you get better at this exercise, challenge yourself with a more difficult three-footer, one with more slope. If it goes in dead center on a breaking putt, you will know that your speed, line, and stroke are improved.

 

Precision is crucial in short-putts. Stick a tee in the cup and make that your target.

 

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, be diligent and patient in your exercises. Make sure to practice regularly and give your skills some time to develop.

I'm thinking a ball marker you can putt over which doubles as an NTP marker and putting training aide.

Hmmm, yeah. Look.

I thought I'd stay PC and not scare them off with such direct and personal questions up front.

The one I really want to ask is whether they know of a cure for being batsh.it crazy.

Edit - I put the . In the wrong spot so the swear filter was being too PC. I thought the newbie might not like a xxx reference in their new thread.

If only it could have a bottle opener incorporated as well.

 

Then i might be interested.
