Golf Tip: Helpful Counting System while Putting

Set Your Putting Rhythm with a 1-2 Count

Often times in golf keeping things simple actually works out a lot better. I am going to give you a great tip in putting where you can keep things very simple and be very successful with your putting. To try to have the right pace and the right tempo to your stroke use a count system, for instance one- two. You can regulate the length and pace of your stroke by just using that simple count of one-two. As I set up over the ball I am going to count it out as I make my stroke, one-two.

  • One is for the back stroke.
  • Two is for the forward stroke.

Let me do it again, this will help me keep my rhythm constant. One, two. You can make putting as simple as that and that will lead to better distance control on your putts which leads to less putts per round and leads to better scores on your scorecard.
