5 Tips On How To Make Golf Puts
For those golfers who haven't been making their shots, here are 5 tips on how to make golf putts.
- Head down. Always--always--watch the ball during your stroke. Never look up until after you have struck the ball. Looking up could lead to a poor strike of the ball, which means the ball may not travel the correct distance and direction.
- Line up the logo to your target. Take the brand "Titleist' for example. If you know the golf putt will break to the left about six inches, then point the word "Titlelist" towards your intended target about six inches to the right of the hole.
- Square alignment. Make sure your shoulders, hips and feet are aimed squarely at the hole. Setting up open - or when your body is lined to the left - could lead to your golf putts missing on the left. The same goes for if your stance is closed, or aimed to the right. This could lead to more golf putts missed on the right.
- Have confidence. Someone who believes that he or she can make golf putts will, by default, make more golf putts. It's almost like "willing" the ball in the hole. Tell yourself that you can knock in that golf putt when you are playing by yourself, in front of your friends, or before ten million people on the television.
- Visualize the ball going into the hole. Before hitting your golf putts, imagine yourself putting it and see it--in your mind--rolling towards the hole, and then see that tiny white sphere fall into the cup.
