If you ask any golf professional whats the quickest way to lower your score they would tell you to ‘get better at putting’. We know that for the average mid to high handicapper spends around half of their time on the greens so getting better at putting will definitely improve your score overall. In this article we would like to share with you three quick ways you can sink more putts an improve you score.
- Practise, practise, practise. It is with putting as it is with many things in life ‘Practise makes perfect’. The more you practise your putting stroke the better putter you will be. We would encourage you to practice a range of putts from all distances, practise putting from off the green and practise reading the green. This is a sure fire way to gain your putting confidence and get more into the hole.
- Get into a putting routine. Watch the pro’s on TV and you will see them have the same routine after every putt, no matter what the distance or break. Having a solid routine will help you hole more putts, especially the pressure putts because you will be forced not to rush and make a bad stroke.
- Try a new putter. As we all know golf is a game of confidence and if you are simply not holing as many as you deserve then maybe changing your putter ( or getting it re-gripped ) may have a positive effect on your confidence. Also putters are the clubs in our bag that we probably change the least, so you may be upgrading your putter to a newer technology that could help you hole with those off centred strokes.
Putting is a vital part of the game and if you are putting well then you will usually have a good round of golf and a more enjoyable time on the course.
