Keep your head down. Sound familiar? Well...it seems like that’s what everyone used to tell me about my putting stroke.
That is...until I heard about this tip...
You see most golfers look up WAY too soon after a hitting a putt. This causes all kinds of unnecessary movement in your body and that makes it hard to hit the ball in the center of the putter.
Believe it or not missing the center of your putter by just a few millimeters can cause your ball to veer off target and add an extra stroke (or two) to your scorecard.
So…how do you ensure that you hit your putts in the center of your putter and get the ball rolling true?
Here's the tip...
When you address the ball pick out a single dimple on the back of your ball. Now focus your eyes in on that one tiny dimple. As you draw your putter back resist the temptation to shift your gaze and stay honed in on that one single dimple. As you begin to accelerate your putter forward keep maintain your focus and watch the middle middle of your putter hit strike that dimple at impact. Continue watching your dimple for as long as you can while the ball begins rolling toward the target.
Another key to this tip is to shift your focus AWAY from making the putt. This may sound counterintuitive, but by focusing on stroking the center of your ball with the center of your putter you’ll be putting a better roll it and more of your putts will start to drop into the cup. Trust me.
Now this might not be easy at first - especially if you’re used to watching your putter as you take it away or focusing on the hole instead of the ball. If you’re not careful you can end up whiffing the ball on the putting green, and trust me THAT can be embarrassing. That’s why I recommend doing this drill on the practice green at least a few times before you try it out on the course during a real round.
Remember…drive for show…putt for dough!
