Think of all the golfers that are better than you in the Raleigh area – and I’m not talking about 1 or 2 strokes (unless you are scratch), I’m referring to the guys / gals that are 5, 10, 20 strokes better.
Do they have more confidence? Yes.
Do they know their strengths & weaknesses? Maybe.
Everyone wants to hit it like a tour player, most will never be able to – but what everyone can do (and even better than Tour players) is putt.
This is how Tour players think –
“I know I make a lot of putts inside 15 feet, and lag putt really well (most Tour players fall into these two categories) so I am not afraid of missing shots. I can then aim at more pins, and because I know I can putt – this allows me to make a more relaxed, stress free swing that doesn’t focus on failing to pull off the shot. This allows me to drive the ball better and think about how I should be playing the course, not about how I should be fixing my swing. Because I can putt I know I am going to play well – I am more relaxed before my round and more confident that there will be a positive outcome involving my round.”
It all boils down to the putter. When was the last time you took a lesson just for your putting stroke? When was the last time you even got out to your local golf course like Wildwood Green and practiced?
If you don’t have time to get to the putting green, here are two ways to improve indoors:
Buy The Putting Edge. This is the best and fastest way to get a better putting stroke.
If you don’t want to spend the money – Set up two drinking glasses (turned upside down) about 10 feet apart and attach a piece of string to the glasses using tape. Put a quarter on one end to represent the hole and putt from the other end. Place the golf ball directly under the string so that the ball follows the path of the string when you putt. This will help you with alignment, feel, and the beginnings of a consistent stroke.
The Putting Edge allows you to feel a proper putting motion and helps to establish proper alignment. Using the glasses and string allows you to focus on alignment and “squaring up” your body to the putting line.
Contact me to schedule a 30 minute putting lesson and we can work together to lower your scores faster then you ever thought possible.
