When it comes to learning how to putt, one thing that will have a big effect on your putting is practice!
If you’d like to jump straight to the great resource that helped me drop my handicap by 15 strokes visit the site below:
When I started playing reguarly I ended up getting incredibly frustrated with my golf because even though I could drive the ball miles, I simply couldn’t putt! – It’s one of those incredibly anoying things being able to drive a ball miles down the fairway yet when you get to the green you end up missing the simplest of putts!
One thing I realised after a while though was that I never practiced my putting! I just assumed that one day it would click into place and I’d get better! – Thankfully I did realise that I would have to start practicing my putting reguarly if I wanted to actually get better at it! After all, “practice makes perfect” I would say to myself.
Luckily for me the driving range was 5 minutes from my house and there was a practice green there that anybody could go on and practice their putting, so I started heading down there reguarly to see if I could get better! – I saw some improvement but not a great deal, and it was frustrating because I really wanted to know how to putt better!
The local pro who worked at the shop noticed that I was practicing my putting reguarly so one day he decided to come out and see what I was doing! – He instantly noticed a few faults but he didn’t have much time to actually help me out, and then he recommended that I should have lessons with him! – I didn’t fancy paying for his expensive training though!
One great tip he gave me though was that although, “practice makes perfect” if you’re practicing the wrong things you’ll never get better, you’ll just become better at being worse instead of learning how to putt.
It then occured to me that I’d have to really start looking seriously at training and having lessons but I really couldn’t afford the expensive hourly rate that most of the local pro’s were charging!
This is when I decided to go online and see if I could find some great online training! – I searched for hours and didn’t really find much, but then I finally managed to come across a great website which offered fantastic training, professional tips, videos and also had tons of great reviews from satisfied people!
