Correct Putting Errors And Play Better Golf
Good putting can shave many strokes off your total and produce a winning game
Head or body movement while playing a putting stroke is an all too common fault which causes missed putts. Naturally to want to watch the ball travel tothe hole so you turn your head or even your whole body in that direction during execution of the putt. Then usually disaster results as your ball goes off course and wide of the hole.
Many golfers are not aware of the kind of movemnent they make while executing a stroke. Straightening up from the putting stance to see if the ball goes toward the hole makes the shoulders position open up early, and makes the club head go toward the left with a resultant closed club face. You will have noticed that many missed putts tend to go left of the hole. When practicing putting make ensure that you are thinking clearly of your posture as you line up your putt.
After executing the putt, hold your arms and club in the follow through position for about several seconds, so that you can do a check of the following things:
(1.) Is your club face still squarel to the hole?
(2.) Is the swing arc of your club head still square on the correct line to the hole?
(3.) Is your body still holding the starting position from the start of the shot?
Should you not carry through perfectly with all these items the result will certainly be missed putts. If you get into a habit of thinking of this "putt then hold position" mantra you will know if your putt is being carried out the way it should be. You need to always keep in mind the idea " definitely no movement of position" during the execution of and after the putting stroke!
