Putting Style

Postby adodds32078 » Tue Sep 19, 2006 7:18 am

I've tried a couple of different putting styles and so far the kindof slow drop putt is whats worked the best for me. Is this a pretty common style of putting or should I be doing it another way? Any opinions would be great.

Do what ever feels best to you... you can watch others and add things you like, but the most important thing is feeling confident. Thats what i am working on.

I agree, go with what works best. More than likely, youll find another style down the road and switch it up. Ive had about 5 different, and still use 2 depending on the way I feel.

For some people, this will be a GOOD indication of a solid putt...

I guess, the "paint the pole technique" is in effect there... start low, push through w/ your hips, just enough spin, and ching!

Another change I've made to my putting game is going from a spin putter to more of a push putter. This has lead to less spit backs and cut threws and if I miss I only have a 10 ft comeback putt. While changing to a push putt I've focussed on using less motion. I only bring my putter back to my knee before going forward. When I release I still focus on following through and extend my hand up and forward. This leads to a crisp release and have a spot on the chains where I hit more consistently.
