Get Your Stroke on Track

Whatever your putting style, the objective is always the same: to get the ball rolling in the right direction. These thoughts will help you to do just that.

Next time you go out to work on your stroke, check the following.

First, as you bend from the hips to create your posture, make sure that your eye-line is directly over the ball. That way you will have the perfect perspective for the line of the putt.

Second, check that the top of the spine is virtually parallel to the ground. This will assist you in making the pendulum motion that is critical in a solid putting stroke.

Once you have these qualities in your set up, you are on the way to developing a stroke that enables you to get the putter and ball moving together down the line towards the hole.

Rock the Shoulders

From the set-up position, here's a simple swing thought that will help you to develop the basic mechanics of a solid, repeating pendulum-style stroke.

All you have to do is think of the left shoulder moving downwards while the right works upwards to make your backswing. To reverse momentum, simply reverse that sensation, the left shoulder moving up while the right shoulder works down and through to swing the putter through the ball.
