I'm going to improve your putting right now. Do you know how you can tell the difference between a professional putting and somebody that needs a little work on their putting stroke? It's in their finish.
Difference Between an Amateur and Professional putter
- The professional, as they go through, their shoulders will rock right down the target line and then their eyes swivel to watch the putt.
- The person that needs a little work on their putting stroke will usually turn their hips and their head after contact to watch the putt. If you're doing that I guarantee you're missing putts right and left.
How to Improve Your Putting
So if you want to improve that what I would suggest is to find a line to putt over. You can use the shaft on the ground or the tile floor and what you want to do is set up with your putter perpendicular to start with and then swing the putter back and through keeping the blade square to that line.
The people that are having trouble with their putting strokes are getting the blade open going back and never getting it closed coming in. They have to use their whole body to square the putter up.
The pros spend hours going back and through keeping that blade square and if the blade is square you've got a chance to stroke the putt without moving your whole body. Back and through. Remember, if you're going to get consistent, you've got to have a square blade going back and through. Then you have got to keep your head and your hips very quite and hold the finish. If you do this you'll make a lot of putts.
