Video Golf Tip | Eyes Over or Inside Putter Head
By Stan Sayers

Hi, I am Stan Sayers, Director of Instruction at McGetrick Golf Academy and today I am going to talk to you about whether or not to have your eyes over the ball in putting. My answer to that is you can have your eyes over or you can have your eyes just inside to maybe a little bit more inside. You definitely do not want your eyes outside the ball. We have seen studies on all three of those how they effect your putting and what it really comes down to is your putter fit and how you see. There are some people that see perfectly to align the putt up with their eyes over the ball. Here I line my club up falling down from my eyes and see that my eyes are pretty close over the ball, maybe a little inside, this is another way to tell by dropping a ball from your eyes, there I am right dead over it. My eyes are over the ball but if the fit on my putter is such that I see straight with my eyes inside then that is exactly where they should be. It is all in how we see the target. Not everybody sees the same. We are not all built the same and we would love to put a blanket on top of these things and say we all have to do this or we all have to do that, but the fact remains that not everybody aims correctly with their eyes over the ball. If you will set up and do those tests, get your eyes over, place a ball on the bridge of your nose, that time it was a little bit inside and that is how this putter is set up. This by the way is not my putter but for this putter my eyes would have to be inside. I would still be able to make that putt but my personal putter fit is with the eyes over, but is ok if my eyes are going to be inside the ball. It does not matter, it matters how you aim, it matters what you do the best. This is how you get better at putting.

Philosophy: Ramsay McMaster Our main concept in golf fitness is to understand how your body works with your golf swing, looking at the dysfunctional areas of your body and how they effect your swing
Hitting Down To Make The Ball Go Up Teach kids that with irons you must hit down on the ball to make it go up because the ball gains backspin by rolling up the face
How To Align Your Stance Straight Many slicers hit the ball to the right simply because they are lined up to the right, when they go to hit the ball their mind knows the target is to the left and then subconsciously changes the swing to outside in so that the club travels towards the target causing a slice
