An Attempt to Hit the White Ball Straight

Why Are My Putts Always Short and Below the Hole?

Missing on the “amateur side” is common for, well, amateurs. When putting, the better putters always miss on the high side and miss long. This is especially important on bentgrass greens that break quite a bit. On championship bermuda, putts generally go straight and hold up with the grain, but fast championship bermuda greens can leave many amateurs on the low side of the hole.

Does the Matt Kuchar Forearm Anchoring Putting Stroke Work?

Well, obviously it does for him. Many amateur golfers are trying to figure out not that the anchor putter has been banned. Why isn’t Matt Kuchar’s anchor banned? Well, Kuchar anchors the putter on his forearm and not on his chest or stomach. This might be a remedy to your problems if it is difficult to keep your hands steady throughout the entire putting motion.

How to Be the Best Putter at Your Country Club

Putting is the hardest part of golf; don’t let anyone tell you differently. The only way you are going to break 90, 80 or even 70 is to avoid three and four putts. If your greens are rolling at a 12 or faster you know just how many strokes you can accumulate on the greens. On the flip side of that, if you are a great putter, you know how much of a stress reliever it is to stand on the green knowing you will two putt or less. Here are some tips on becoming the best putter at your country club.

Why Does Lexi Thompson Putt with a Glove On?

Over the last few months more and more people have tuned into women’s golf on the LPGA Tour. Part of this is because of Lexi Thompson. Not only can she play golf, she is athletic and gorgeous. She drives the ball over 300 yards and plays a game that even most amateur men can only dream about. The biggest problem with Lexi’s game at the moment is putting. She even went to an oversized putter that looks quite ridiculous.

Short Back Stroke and Accelerate Through Putting

Over the last two years I have worked to make myself an above average putter. That said, there are still a few pressure putts I missed in 2015 that drive me crazy. To change that, I adjusted my putter with a cork grip and shortened by back stroke, especially on the shorter putts. This has made a world of difference as I am one now the best putter I have ever been. In fact, if you put me over a pressure putt less than 20 feet it is going to be close to the hole or in. Here is why:

Putting Into or With the Grain

When putting on most greens it is important to remember that the rough side of the hole or cup is where the ball will break. Here is a quick way to think about it. The rough side of the cup is the catcher’s mitt. This is where the ball is going to go. The way in which the grain is growing will greatly determine the speed of your putts. Here is a picture to illustrate just that:

How to Putt on Bentgrass Greens Feeling Break with Your Feet

Putting on bentgrass greens has become second nature to me. In fact, I am hitting more and more birdie putts between six and 12 feet every single round. Two putting is common and a three putt is very rare. One of the ways in which I have improved my putting skills on bentgrass greens is to feel the putt with my feet. Rather than looking at the line to the hole, the first thing I do is stand over the putt and determine if the putt is above my feet or below my feet. Here is the putter I use which has helped me win my club championship and many tournaments. This is very important and here’s why.

Why Don’t Putts Break on Bermudagrass Greens vs Bentgrass?

I consistently play three courses in the NC Triangle – Hasentree, Chapel Ridge and Heritage. Both Hasentree and Chapel Ridge have bentgrass greens and I absolutely love them. When they are soft you can spin the ball back to the hole and the putts take every single break you see. The opposite is true of Heritage. Last summer (2014), Heritage went to championship bermudagrass and that course has never been the same. The greens are rock hard and the putts don’t break at all.

Aaron Rodgers Almost Leaves a 3 Inch Tap in Putt Short

Now this is talent:

I am not sure how good of a golfer Aaron Rodgers is but this was a bad putt. With his athleticism and money I would imagine he is close to a scratch golfer but he may need to work on those tap ins. I have no room to talk as I am certain I have missed a handful of short putts such as that one.

Jordan Spieth Putting While Looking at the Hole

It is well known that Jordan Spieth looks at the hole when putting short putts. This is something he has done for quite some time and he is quite good at it. He does not do it on putts of more than five or six feet but anything that amateurs would call “inside the leather” or a “tap in” Jordan putts without looking down at the ball. This is something one of my good friends has done for a long time and he isn’t that bad at it.
