Great thread. Putting threads are my favorite. Allow me to share so of my knowledge. I hope you find it resourceful.
I consider myself a good putter because I have developed a routine that works for me. I do it everytime, same routine
routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine, routine,...
Find a routine..
It truely doesn't matter what putter you use just use the same mold,
Remember, It's the Archer, not the arrow.
Dave Feldberg gave me a putting lesson a year and a half ago and I watched myself go from 938 to 992 and climbing. Its not my driving that's for sure.
He pointed out a few issues I had ( ie, balance, holding the disc, etc...) and he corrected it all and told me " Practice, Practice, Practice to improve your luck" In which I did, do, and the results will be blatant.
When you putt, or any shot for that matter, you want to develop a easily, repeatable movement or throw. That where practicing and routine come into play.
Good Putting practice:
You will need 3 putters the same and a mini:
- Take 3 putters and disperse them in differnet areas of your putting green within 25-30 feet of the Unit. DO NOT putt from the same spot consecutively.
Address each lie as if you were in a tournament:
Mark your lie, Take your time, focus and visualize the line your putt will take into the chains and release. After you sink that putt move to the next putter. Putt all three, than disperse again.
Real life putting situations:
I like to put each putt in a REAL situations. For instance, I might walk up there and ask if I'm out or say nice drive to the ghost players. I may ask a person to move from behind the basket or to move back. I will address my lie get ready to putt and step away because of a fake car horn or someone shouting of in the distance. Put yourself in real life situations.
My nieghbors probably think i'm crazy cause I'm talking to noone, but I don't care. I'm out living my dream and not trapped behind my TV.
Now after 30 minutes or however long you can remain focused, I take 10 putters from 25 feet from the same spot and make all 10 or I can't go inside until I do. You can maybe start at 15 or 20 feet.
Now, I absolutely LOVE to putt. Well, I always have, but now more find the bottom of the Unit.
I hope you find this resourceful and appliable...
Now go practice!
