Watching the FedEx Cup St Jude Championship, I saw Rory McIlroy missing too many putts on the first 3 days of that tournament. Just sinking 1 increasingly putt, would have put him in the playoffs on the final day of that tournament. Please forward this blog to Rory as the content could have earned him an spare $2.5 Million. Of course, it should moreover help you too.
All golfers want to use any wholesomeness to sink increasingly putts. Choosing the right line to start your putts and swinging with the right weight are the 2 hair-trigger issues that I hope to help Rory and you for short putts. Pros sink well-nigh 44% of all 10-foot putts and their success drops significantly for longer putts. Distortions on the surface of the untried will transpiration the direction of every putt but small distortions closer to the slum are a much worthier problem as your wittiness slows lanugo near the hole. So hitting firm unbearable to pass the slum is hair-trigger for your success.
1/ Wittiness Momentum is MORE Hair-trigger Near the Hole
Every putt needs unbearable speed to siphon the wittiness at least 12 to 24 inches past the slum to stave the distortions caused by imperfections near the hole. The most forfeiture on every untried is caused by golfers carelessly limp lanugo at the slum to remove their wittiness from the hole. Pressure from a footprint or the head of a putter used for balance, cause these subconscious distortions.
NOTE: When you putt to pass the slum you should plan on less unravel at the hole.
2/ Every Putter Can Sink ANY Putt
You can’t sire to worry well-nigh using the wrong putter for each day that you play a round of golf. Rory had his caddie cut lanugo his putter by 3/16ths of an inch “because it was not exactly the same length as the putter length that he preferred”. This was a crazy request as he was using a unappetizing grip and could hands slide his hands up the grip. This was a dumb excuse.
3/ Pointing Your Putter Is a Dumb Solution
In the middle of the 3rd round Rory was pointing his putter to line up his wittiness with the hole. That was a big mistake as he missed 2 putts from well-nigh 5 feet using that method (which he rarely uses). You can’t see a unravel by pointing a putter and you can’t finger a slight unravel at the slum by standing over your putting line at any loftiness withal your putting line. You need to trust the unravel near the slum as your wittiness slows down. ( breaks withal the path of the wittiness need to be considered to a lesser extent)
There are only 2 legal ways to measure OR finger the unravel near the hole: (a) by seeing the unravel as you look withal the line of your putt from your wittiness to the slum or (b) by using GRAVITY to determine the value of unravel at the hole, using your “calibrated” putter as a Plumb-Bob. [Stand near the slum on the line from the slum to your wittiness to see if the handle end of your putter shaft lines up whilom or in line with your wittiness (to find the upper side of the slope at the hole).]
NOTE: You can only virtuously plumb-bob with your putter if you “calibrate” it by lining up BOTH a known side (left or right as it is tapered) of the shaft and the direction of your putter face, with any door frame.
