Stop Jabbing the Golf Ball When Swinging

A lot of kids when they first start putting I see an awful lot of kids just jabbing at the ball when they are swinging it. This also applies to adults as well. What I am saying is that when they putt the club down and hit it they kind of jab at the ball like this and they just kind of push it.

Drill for Smoother Putting Stroke

Here is a tip that can help them get out of that. I call it one-two-three. All I am going to have the kids do is once they set the ball up I am going to have them put the club down behind the ball, heel, toe and sole just like they know how to do, feet together, spread them out and then I am going to ask them to think one, two and three.

  • One is going to be a little forward press with my hands.
  • Two is I am going to bring the club back here.
  • Three is I am going to go through.

It looks like this. One, two, three. One, two, three. If I can get them to think about that it is really going to make their stroke a lot smoother and we can get rid of those jabs. I suggest you try it with your kids.
