Coachingolf’s rules of Putting

  • Aim is the first fundamental of Putting
  • On short breaking put, hit it firm enough to take the slope out of it
  • The best putters have three things in common: good green reading, starting the ball on line and speed control
  • Face angle determines 83% of the starting line while putter path direction determines 17%. In other words, a square face angle is more important to starting putts on line than putter path
  • The putting stroke should be executed in one piece so that the putter is nothing more than an extension of the arms
  • The putting system should be built into a repetitive routine to maximize consistency and help block out negative thoughts
