How To Putt
You have to pay attention to the way you move your arms, the way you are standing and, of course, pay attention to the ball if you want to learn how to putt perfectly.
Today, I'm going to tell you how to putt so you avoid wasting too many shots on the ground. Step one is to take the correct grip, so we apply our left hand, making sure the thumb of the left hand points directly down the shaft. Then we apply the right hand and we apply hand like we're going to do an underarm throw to our side.
So, the right hand comes slightly underneath the grip and the heel of the palm of the right hand rests on the last three fingers of the left hand. Step two is getting into the correct posture. So, again, we want to stand up nice and tall, drop our hips back with straight legs and then soften our knees, let the arms hang underneath the shoulders to be held fairly close to the sides.
And that's the correct posture. Step three is making sure you position the ball in line with our left ear. We do this by putting the ball in the middle of our feet, taking a small step to the left and a slightly bigger step to the right.
This ensures we catch the ball slightly on the upstroke as we strike the putt. Step four is to position our head, so that if we dropped a ball from the bridge of our nose, it will land slightly behind the ball on the floor and slightly closer to us. Step five is the back swing and to do this, we keep our hands or wrists and elbows nice and firm and then with the right shoulder, I want you to pull it slightly behind your head.
The club actually moves on a fairly straight putt back away from the ball. Step six is the down swing and this is simply a rocking motion of the shoulders. So once we've pulled the club back, we simply relax the body, keeping the wrists, the arms and the elbows nice and firm and straight through the putt.
So in summary, the most important thing is to take the correct grip on the golf club. The next is to get into a great posture so you're nicely balanced over the putt. The third thing is to make sure the ball is slightly ahead of your left ear.
Next is to position your head over so that if you dropped the ball from the bridge of your nose, it will land slightly behind the ball on the floor and slightly closer to you. And finally, keeping the wrists, the arms and the elbows nice and firm on the back swing, pulling the right shoulder behind you and then relaxing the body and letting the club stroke all the way through to the hole. And that is how to putt. .
