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. *
