3 Steps To Improve Your Golf Putting Technique

If you want to improve your golf putting technique and performance on the greens, then I would recommend that you work on the 3 steps below. If you get these 3 elements in place then you are going to be well on your way to lowering your golf handicap and scores.

The first step you want to take to improve your golf putting technique is to develop a putting setup that is reliable and feels comfortable. By doing this you will be creating an excellent foundation on which to build a consistent putting technique.

The putting setup will include your putting grip, where your ball is located in your stance, how you address the golf ball with your putter, where you eye line should be and adopting a comfortable posture that is balanced and correctly aligned.

If you get your putting setup right, then you will have an excellent foundation from which to build a consistent and reliable golf putting technique. The second step is to groove a consistent putting stroke.

There are really only 2 types of putting stroke that are effective, the arc putting stroke or the pendulum putting. I would recommend using the pendulum style stroke, as this is the easiest to master and will ultimately give you the most consistency in your putting technique.

The final step is to create a putting routine for yourself, which will include stages for reading the green, making sure your alignment is correct, having a few practice strokes and then making the putt.

A good putting routine will help you to keep focused and stop any negative thoughts of previous missed putts creeping in, because you will be concentrating on you stages of the routine. It will also give you something to fall back on if you are having a bad day on the putting greens.

If you work on and perfect the above 3 steps to improving your golf putting technique, then you will start to see some consistency and success in you overall putting performance.

Do you put on a seat belt when you drive?

If so, why?

My guess is that it is either because you are compelled to do so by law, or (if you live in the U.S.) you believe the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), who claim that seat belts save about 13,000 lives a year, nationwide.

The few seconds it takes you to snap on your seat belt buckle reduces the chance of dying in a car crash by 45%, and of being injured by about half. Nevertheless, seat belts are not likely to play a big role in saving your life, because chances are you won’t find yourself in a serious automobile accident. Let’s face it, fortunately, most people never find themselves in that circumstance.

On the other hand, gum disease (either gingivitis or periodontal disease) affects up to 80 percent of the population.

In other articles, you may have heard that periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. The shocking reality is that this is probably the least notable consequence of periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease is a significant risk factor for stroke, heart disease, certain respiratory problems, low birth-weight infants, and some forms of cancer.

While very few people will die in a car crash, a great deal more will die from a heart attack, stroke, or cancer. Addressing periodontal disease via preventive techniques can significantly reduce your chances of dying from any one of these afflictions.

If this simple logic is not enough to convince you of the need to brush after meals, floss daily and eat a healthy diet, it may help you to know that over the past few decades, there have been hundreds of peer-reviewed medical studies published in journals showing periodontal disease to be a risk factor for heart attacks.

While periodontal disease is certainly not the only factor in the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases or cancer, there is definitely a link. The modern thinking regarding the connection has to do with the long-term inflammatory nature of gum disease. In simple terms, periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the gums and bone supporting the teeth. As with most any infection in the body, this leads to inflammation.

Often having no symptoms that are detectable by the patient, bacteria from periodontal disease can affect blood vessels on the walls of your heart. If you have gum disease, the bacteria can easily invade the blood stream through one of many open portals. Let’s face it, it is a relatively short trip from the mouth to the heart after all.

Bacteria in the blood may also stimulate liver production of C-reactive proteins and fibrinogen. Both these substances have been linked to heart attacks.

Persons who successfully treated their periodontal disease have also been shown to experience improved cholesterol levels and demonstrated lowered blood pressure. Most readers will recognize these as factors frequently associated with cardiovascular disease.

The bottom line: while we generally don’t hesitate to …
