Video Golf Tip | Long Putt Strategy

The basic principle of stroking long putts is distance control. The goal should be to roll the ball within a three-foot radius of the hole. Do not try to make the putt, every now and then you may get lucky and have one go in, but if you learn how to lag the putt ever so gently towards the hole, you will always avoid that dreaded three putt. Hopefully you will. Now how do I achieve this? Go to the practice putting green, place some tees down around a three-foot radius of the hole, and just keep stroking putts trying to put the balls inside the tees. Do this from various locations: uphill, downhill, sidehill. You will become a much better lag putter and I can promise you, you will dramatically lower your golf scores.

Causes of Thin Shots Hitting the ball with the bottom of the club face can result from several different swing faults
Bunker Sand Displacement The key to a bunker shot is to eject the sand from the bunker and have the ball go with the sand
Push Cures Push shots are caused by a swing that is too shallow and from the inside, many times caused by the body moving in front of the ball during the downswing and causing the club to get stuck behind the body
