Video Golf Tip | Pre-Round Putting Warm Up

The next time you go out for a round of golf and you are warming up on the practice green I want you to practice with one ball and one ball only. What most golfers do is take two or three balls, hit their putts, they will pull them to the side and then hit to the next hole, but what I see with most golfers is that when they play, especially in tournament golf or when they have a bet with their buddies, is that when they have a three, four or five foot putt they are always nervous over them. One reason they are nervous over those short putts is that they never putt them out. So when you go out to play a round of golf, you get to the putting green, one ball, and what I want you to do is hit your putt, try to make it, but if you miss it I want you to hole out your next putt just like you are playing golf. You are more in a competitive playing environment. Then move on to your next hole and so on. I would like to demonstrate. I have a 20 five foot right to left breaking putt, aiming just about three feet right of the hole. This one my speed control was off, I ran it four feet by. Now I want to come up and hole out this putt. After I hole out this putt, even if I miss it, I am going to tap the next one in then I am going to move on to the next hole. If you practice this way before a round of golf I really believe you are going to be prepared and you are going to have one of your better putting days when you play golf.

Bad Back Cure The most common cause of a bad back is keeping your back foot flat on the ground in the golf swing; get up on your back toe to eliminate excessive torque
Ideal Impact Position Proper impact is by far the most important part of the golf swing, you must make contact with the ball and the ground at the same time with a square clubface in order to maximize your distance and accuracy
Balanced Putting Stroke Practice this drill to keep your putting stroke balanced going back and following through
