MONDAY PUTTING TIPS

Why is ball position so important to become a better Putter?

Let us explain….

In an ideal world, the strike of a putt should be on the upward/ascending arc for a more efficient roll.

If the ball is positioned incorrectly in our stance in relation to our front and back foot. This can make you hit too much down on the ball effecting the roll but also effectting our strike and putter path.

A simple key to check if yours is correct….

Take your set up and drop a ball from your lead eye (left – for a right handed golfer). Where that ball drop is the ideal place to position the ball in set up.

For lesson bookings and general enquiries please contact the pro shop 01708688333 or if you like what you have seen email Reece direct [email protected] or fill out the contact form underneath.

Mid Week Strike Check

Get instant feedback from something as simple as using athletes foot spray.

Striking the ball from the centre of your iron face is the best way to maximise distance and efficiency.

Let me break it down.

Sweet spot – The point on the clubface which feels the best – we all know those shots where you “didn’t even feel it”. Hitting the sweet spot results in minimal twisting of the club, maximum energy transference to the ball, and warm, fuzzy feelings inside – you will see longer shots with more consistency.

The Not-So-Sweet-Spot

Anywhere not in the centre hahaha

But what happens when we miss the sweet spot?

In this video Sergio Garcia’s driver off the deck shows what really happens when a ball is mis-hit it, we see the crazy effect it had on the clubhead.

In the left column, we see a toe shot and the club twist open.
In the right column, we see heel shot where the club twists closed.
 
This will affect direction slightly, but not by much, and maybe not in the way you would imagine.
