Building your putting stroke starts with the basic fundaments. Here you will learn how to master the three keys to creating an efficient stroke.
1.Lower Body Stability
2. Upper Body Rotation
3. Stable Head
How you set-up to the ball is essential. The set-up controls:
1. Rotation of the upper body through the stroke.
2. Shoulder and forearm alignment.
3. Path of your putter.
Matching path of the putter and club face is key to staring the ball online. It’s also essential to producing a pure roll of the ball. Fixing path can be as simple as adjusting your shoulder and forearm alignment.
Distance control can be tricky. To control the distance, you need two things:
1. Have consistent acceleration of the putter no matter the length of the putt. Acceleration can also be known as the tempo of your stroke.
2. Length of the backswing is the primary control of how far your putts travel. Assuming you have consistent acceleration/tempo.
How you grip the putter is critical. However, what grip you choose is entirely up to you. Trying different grips allows you to find one that works best for you. What's important is the grip helps you return the putter to square at impact.
