Every Putt Counts
Great putting is a combination of:
A – Feel and touch
B – Mechanics
C – Mental toughness
All great putters have a routine. I like to take 2 practice strokes and then hit the putt without any delay. All the pros will tell you that speed and distance have a higher value (I give it 90%)than line accuracy on longer putts. Practice putting 10 minutes a day, hitting 10-20 footers, and you will improve your touch.
That’s not to say that the line accuracy can be ignored, especially at Centennial Golf Course! The course is in great shape this year and some of the greens have a lot of contour, so it is critical that we start our putts on the correct line. Come and see me and I will show you how to read greens and get your longer putts within 2 feet. If you 3-putt a third of the time, that’s 6 greens.
Turning your 3 putt greens into 2 putt greens… that’s 6 strokes saved.
LOW AM PLAYS PING
The low amateur at the U.S. Open who posted the lowest 72-hole score for an amateur in the championship’s history (-4, 280) played PING equipment. He was #1 in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee with a G410 LST driver, a new addition to his bag last week. He also relied on a G410 3-wood, along with iBlade and i210 irons.
