Combine Direction and Distance Control for Better Putting
Now we are going to put it all together when it comes to putting. We have talked about distance, we have talked about direction, we showed you drills in both areas and now this is something that every golfer needs to know and needs to watch and once again I am going to ask Luke to help me out with what we are going to do. We are going to work on putting that distance and that direction together as far as putting on the putting green.
So, Luke’s ball is on the putting green right now and the first thing he is going to do is mark that golf ball. He is going to pick the ball up, clean it and then putt the ball back down, he is going to set the arrow using the writing on the ball and then get up besides the ball. Next he is going to look at the hole and take two practice swings, there we go, shot number one, shot number two, now he is going to put the club down behind the ball and form the letter T, put his feet together, spread his feet shoulder width apart, take one last look at the hole….that is in. That is the way it is done.
Get Close to the Hole Every Time
What you have to remember is that when it comes to putting you have two things, distance and direction, just like any shot in golf. If you can combine those two elements you are going to get that ball close or in the hole. That is what you goal is, particularly on the green. So if you follow these tips we have provided you, just like Luke did just a second ago, your putting is going to improve.
