Video Golf Tip | Aiming Lines On Putters
By Stan Sayers

Hi, I am Stan Sayers, Director of Instruction at McGetrick Golf Academy and today I am going to talk about lines on your putter and how they effect your aim. Through a number of years of putter fitting we have determined what lines actually do to your putting. Some are better and some are worse. The lady who initially developed this method was Chris Aoki out of Seattle, WA. If you will notice here I have a putter with no lines, here I have a putter with one line, here I have a putter with a back line and then a putter with three lines. No lines is your most right aim configuration, a top line aims just a little more left, back line a little more left than that and three lines most left. There can be more line configurations but this is the basic way to see this. People can also aim the opposite way. I could aim this the most left and then it is going to work opposite the other way. Generally lines are going to effect you one way or the other. If you notice you are aiming more left then you may want to try less lines to help get you to aim more right. These are just ways to help you initially begin seeing how your putter effects you. There are also many other configurations in that method. In our fitting method, with the Adell System, we are able to determine not only how many lines you need, but where that line should be located. This gives you the ability to aim your putter straight. Some people think they need to have lines to aim and when we ask them what they aim with they will say the face of the putter. So work with different lines, grab some putters, see how you see the hole best. You will find that some are very hard for you to aim and they are very difficult and some are not. In general this is how lines effect your aim.

Better Delivery Position for a More Powerful Swing The delivery position of the swing is when the club shaft is parallel to the ground, at which point the right elbow and knee should have kicked in towards the center of your stance
Analyze Your Impact The only way to have a proper impact position is if the back of your left hand is square to the target at impact
Backswing: Arm Movement In the backswing the arms do not move back but rather hinge upwards
