Greetings from Suzanne Wednesday, 25 April 2012
There is a lot of talk and discussion, promoted more recently by the manufacturers, about Putter design and your stroke shape (straight, slight arc and strong arc). This is a relevant discussion but not the priority with most golfers playing the game, whether casually or as regular members.
How many golfers have actually ever had a Putting lesson and been taught the basic techniques that allow them, whatever their stroke shape, to return the face square to the target line in their stroke? Those same golfers are all familiar with the first 12 inches of the takeaway with their Driver and many other aspects of the golf swing, but their knowledge of the Putting stroke fundamentals should be a lot better.
Next, how many of those same golfers have ever had their Putter fitted for their game? Putter, posture, setup and alignment are all critically interlinked. The manufacturers, who have given us Fitting Carts for Irons and Metalwoods, have turned their attention to making it as easy as possible to fit golfers to the correct specification Putter.
But, let’s leave the manufacturers out of this. Turn your attention to your Putting stroke and the Fitting of your Putter and you can make real improvements in your Putting. I’m talking about >25% more Putts sunk in the 6 – 15 foot range. That is a big impact on your scorecard. Contact us now and become a better Putter.
