Professional Putting Tip

Today I’m going to give you a simple (yet very powerful) putting tip that could help you to save a lot of strokes every time you play.

One putting tip can easily do that. Just look at Rory McIlroy for example… his putting has been very poor of late, and then he makes a small change to his right hand putting grip and wins the Deutsche Bank Championship. Golf Putting Tip - Putter and Golf Ball

The more I look into putting improvement the more I think a lot of it relates to self-discipline, and here’s one big tip to help you with this.

Every time you watch golf on T.V. you see an awful lot of putting by the pros. And there’s one thing they all do that most amateurs and bad putters certainly don’t do.

Next time you watch golf on T.V. notice how at the end of the pros putting strokes they all hold their finish. It might be for a second or some even longer.

Then, the next time you play with your mates watch their finish, and I bet you won’t see many hold their finish like the pros – UNLESS they are a good putter.

Instead, you’ll see lots of waving the putter after the ball is hit. Like they’re trying to control the ball somehow after it’s been hit.

It seems like a subtle difference but…a Good putter – Holds the finish a Bad putter – Doesn’t hold the finish

Now if you’re a bad putter and you start holding the finish are you going to start holing every putt?


Probably not.

But I bet you’ll putt better, and here’s why.

Good putters make good, confident strokes and hold their finish. They’re not trying to steer the ball into the hole.

Bad putters make steering type of strokes and keep trying to steer the ball into the hole after they’ve hit it.

At the start of this article, I said that the more I look at putting improvement the more I think it relates to self-discipline, and that’s especially true with this tip.

Holding your finish OR NOT is a habit.

If you want to improve your putting then make holding your finish a habit. To do this, simply every time you putt hold your follow-through for 3 seconds.

By doing this and making it a habit you’ll “programme” yourself to make good strokes without so much concern from trying to get the ball into the hole.

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression that “trying fails”.

And that’s especially true with putting. If you try hard to steer the ball into the hole you’ll often miss. But if you make a good putting stroke and let the outcome take care of itself, you’ll often get better results.

Putting accounts for about 43% of every game of golf you play, and this month I’m going to help you more to improve your putting so you take strokes off your scores. It really is the quickest and easiest place to do that, so stay tuned.
