Lately my putting has become better but still not where I want it to be. I give up a few strokes every round on just either mental or physical breakdowns with the flat stick.
I was pulling or pushing putts and had almost zero confidence in my putting. I am gaining some of it back now, but for about three weeks I was scared to putt, even little tap ins!
So here is what I’ve been doing to get over my putting woes, maybe it will help someone reading this as well.
Everyone has read before to use the logo on the golfball to line up your putt I am sure. We me being like most other golfers I to had heard this, but it seemed when I tried it I never got the ball online and as you know if you don’t get the ball online it doesn’t matter how good of a stroke you have, you wont make the putt.
I was thinking about this technique the other day since my way of putting was going down hill and it hit me how hard it actually is to line up a putt using the logo on the golf ball by lining the logo up at the cup. Say if you have a 20 foot putt that is straight in its difficult to get the logo lined up exactly and even harder if there is break.
So, the way I’ve found to make this technique a lot easier is to find your line and find something about an inch in front of your ball (fuzz, light spot in the green, etc ) that is also in the line and line the logo up with that. Its a lot easier to line your ball up with something right in front of it then it is to line it up with something twenty feet away. Since I’ve done this my putting has greatly improved. As I said its still not where I’d like it to be, but that’s golf. I don’t think any aspect of out games will ever be where we want them unless your name is Tiger.
