Establish more feel and control

Putting practice at the golf course

As you will hear in the video, there is information out there about which hand is most important in putting. It is my goal to help you identify which hand is best for you! There is not a right answer, it is the hand that feels the best and allows you to control the club face and speed. 

Warm up your putting

Step 1. Find a 4 foot straight putt

Step 2. Make 5 in a row

Step 3. Find 2 holes that are 25 feet apart

Step 4. Hit 10 putts back and forth (5 putts each way)

1-Handed Putting Test

Step 1. Start with right hand

Step 2. Hit 5 balls from 5 feet (straight putt)

Step 3. Hit 5 balls from 15 feet 

Step 4. Hit 5 balls from 30 feet

Next: Repeat process with left hand

Which one did you feel like you had the best control with? This is the hand you should feel most when putting with two hands on the putter!

Finish off your practice with simulating pressure
