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.
