What to do if your lag putting ever fails you

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - INSTRUCTION -

Even if you work hard on your lag putting, there are still times when you will face a three-footer for par. You might have chipped up to there, or splashed out of a bunker to that po­si­tion... or you might even have hit your ap­proach there. No mat­ter how you got to three, four or five feet away, you want to make the putt – you don’t need me to tell you how solid short putting ti­dies up a score­card. On a short putt, keep­ing the face square is your pri­mary fo­cus. Here is a drill to help you groove that into your sub­con­scious stroke.

Align­ment aid + flag = suc­cess

Keep your put­ter head’s align­ment aid run­ning par­al­lel to the flag dur­ing the stroke and you keep the face square.
