How To Improve Putting For A Better Score

By Janell Bowers

There are several pieces of advice on how to improve putting. Improving your putt can be achieved by practice. When you have a good putt, your score will be lower. This is true whether you are playing mini golf with your children, or a round with your buddies.

“Reading the green” is a term that describes examination of the strip of grass that surrounds the hole. It is an important part of having a good putt. The green’s incline, the grass length, the direction of the wind and how fast it is blowing are all things to be considered when reading the green. The speed that the ball needs to reach the hole is determined by these factors.

Upper and lower body movement affects the putt. Your body should be still and relaxed as you swing. Only the shoulders and arms should move during your swing. If your lower body is moving, it will result in your putt missing the hole. To improve on holding your lower body still, you should stand next to a wall and putt. If your lower body hits the wall, you are moving too much and should practice being still.

Body stance is a factor when going to putt. If you stand over the ball, you can see better than if you stand behind the ball. The distance that you swing back also affects the putt. The back swing should only be a few inches.

When you putt, the putter should feel right in your hands. There are different weights to putters and the wrong weight will negatively affect your putt. If cost is a factor in purchasing a putter, a good putter does tend to be expensive, but the right one in your hands is an effective tool.

Aim is paramount when you go to putt. In order to have a successful putt, you must line up the ball with the hole. There are tools that can be used to help better your aim. A chalk line from the hardware store can be used to improve aim. Also, you can draw lines on your ball and putter. The lines will direct the ball to the hole when you are putting.

You can work on improving your putt by practicing short shots. Take your ball to the green and practice making short shots until you can hit the hole every time. As you improve, lengthen your shots to another distance and practice until you are successful. Continue this until you have improved at each distance on the green.

Any practice you can do in your spare time with a golf practice set will enhance your game. Purchase a putting set, then put it up in your office or living room and get to work.

One handed putting is a good drill to learn which hand is dominant. You can try putting with each hand multiple times. The hand that you had the most success with is your dominant hand. This one is the one you should use when putting.

Good rhythm, as well as continuity helps your putt improve. The putter, stance and line up should be the same every time. Any variable will cause your putt to be unsuccessful.
