Video Golf Tip | Missing Putts On The High Side
By Tim Cusick

In putting there are two things that make the most difference from a successful putter to someone who is not so successful, distance and direction. What I am going to talk to you about right here is the direction of the putt, more specifically the break of the putt. When you are playing your putts you are always trying to play the correct amount of break with the correct amount of speed. Always try to play more break than you think because most golfers play too little break. Think of it this way, every time you play more break every roll of the putt is getting closer to the hole. When you play less break and the ball gets below the hold every roll of the ball is getting further away from the hole. As I hit these putts my goal is trying to get the putt to finish above the hole if it does not go in and breaking down towards the hole just the way that putt did right there. I putted it above the hole and I broke down towards the hole. If I hit a putt and I don't play enough break the ball starts rolling away from the hole and every roll that it goes away from the hole is going to be a longer putt. So my tip to you is play more break than you think, sneak up on the hole, try to miss on the high side. If you do that you are going to make more putts.

Pitching and Chipping Pitching and chipping is just a smaller version of the full swing. Maintain your triangle you create a set up and allow for some body movement
Slice Cause: Steep Swing Taking practice swings holding the club at waist lever, allowing yourself to feel the rotation of your shoulders, arms and the clubface
One-Plane Backswing Make sure to keep your right elbow behind your body during the backswing so that the left arm can continue to cross your chest and stay on the same plane as your shoulders.
