Golf Tips - Four Set-Up Fundamentals Common to all Great Putters

By Bob Wyatt

When putting, remember to check these four set-up fundamentals:

  1. Putter face square to target line
  2. Eyes over target line
  3. Shoulders square (parallel) to target line
  4. Hands vertically under shoulders

There can still be a lot of individual style and comfort within these parameters. These four set-up fundamentals are common to all great putters, and will help insure your success. *

Eliminate Tension in the Swing Practice your swing by starting at the finish so that you release through impact and complete your swing properly
Cure For Pull Shots: Close Stance Practice closing your stance to help get the feel for an inside-out swing path
Counter-Balanced Golf Posture The one plane swing requires that you bend from the hips more than the two plane swing set up. This move is counter balanced by your buttocks going back more, thus maintaining your balance on the balls of your feet.
