Want a lower score? – Here is three quick ways to sink more putts

Posted on Updated on

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 mGolf player at the greenany 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.

Try these tips to improve your putting and please share any successes you have … good luck!

The Odyssey Versa 2-Ball White Putter review

Odyssey Versa 2-Ball White Putter with SuperStroke Grip 

Golf Talk’s hottest putter review …

The odyssey range of putters have been best sellers since there very first introduction almost twenty years ago. The two ball design help golfers of all levels line up putts better so they can concentrate on the distance control. Now with the Odyssey Versa 2-Ball White Putter the product range just got better.

The actual design of the putter head has not changed much in recent years, however the High Contrast Alignment System now makes it even easier to line up short to mid distance putts. In our hands this did have a positive feel and gave confident that we were lining up correctly. We immediately could see a difference in how many short putts were holed.

The Odyssey Versa also has Counterbalance Stability Weighting Technology. This means the putter has a heavier head (400g) and heavier shaft (150g) this helps to keep your hands quiet during the stroke and prevent wrist break. We felt that this counter balance system was effective at keeping the putter true to the target line.

The addition of the Super Stroke grip helps remove any tension in the wrists and keeps your arms swinging freely. Odyssey have also introduced a new high-tech PU material featuring CrossTraction technology for improved feel and tackiness and 1.30” in diameter weighing 60 grams.

Overall if you feel that you are not making enough putts out on the course and are looking for a new putter to try then the Odyssey Versa is definitely one that Golf Talk would recommend!
