Golf Tips - You Should Putt Like You Swing

By Myrtle Beach Golf School / Peter Anderson

... or a little more eloquently stated, "A putting stroke is a true swing, and should be made up of the same components as your full swing;" is recommended advise in much of the instructional writing through the years. Percy Boomer, in his classic book "On Learning Golf" made a comparison when he stated that, "Anyone with a proper concept of the golf swing, who then applies those same concepts to the putt, will surely become a superb putter." Johnny Miller apparently concurred when in 1977, he blamed the loss of his full swing on the fact that he had made changes in his putting stroke a couple of years earlier, which eventually disrupted his rhythm on all shots. If you can accept these statements, you can utilize the fact that your putter swing is small, slow moving, and largely without muscular effort, to better enable yourself to grasp the concepts, and mechanics, which are equally important to all golf swings. *
