A Unique Putting Tip

To improve your technique use this simple technique.

You need to learn to putt on the flat before you can expect to putt well on greens with a slope.

By practicing this you will be able to swing your putter though a straight line. This will enable you to hit the ball squarely on the face of the putter.

There is another good technique you can use when practicing on the green. Mark straight lines with a builders chalk line in several directions from the center of the hole spanning out around the green.  You will want to do this to one that you have at home since this technique wouldn’t be appreciated in public.

To make the process easier you should get someone to hold the chalk line at the center of the cup.

To leave chalk marks along the ground you must move around the green flicking line.  After that place your golf ball on the line and leave some of the line on the ground visible behind the ball. Your swing will be guided by that.

Swing your putter using the line on the ground as a guide.  You should line up the putter itself to connect with the center of the ball.

You will manage to putt in a very short time. From a relatively good distance you will be able to get the ball in the hole most of time.

Consistency and correct posture will help start to putt better.

Move the ball off the line after doing this from a different position on the green. Visualize that there is still a line on the ground by creating it in your mind. Look from the ball to the cup and back again several times.

You should line your putter up as before and look at the line on your putter. To hit center of the ball with this spot on your club.

You should now retrain yourself to see an invisible line from the ball to the cup. This will help you be able to use it on any green you play on.
