USE THIS TIME TO MAKE A PUTTING CHANGE— FOR THE BET­TER

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Winterize Your Game - BY HANK HANEY

The racks are filled with all kinds of put­ters de­signed to make rolling the ball eas­ier, and that’s great for some play­ers. But the best put­ter­head tech­nol­ogy in the world isn’t go­ing to help if you can’t con­trol the face through im­pact. If you think you have the yips, or gen­er­ally strug­gle to hit putts on the line you’ve cho­sen, don’t be afraid to try dif­fer­ent ways to hold the club, as well as grips of dif­fer­ent shapes and sizes. Shak­ing things up can re­ally change the way your hands and wrists re­spond through im­pact and can calm down ex­tra move­ment. Here I’m hold­ing an over­size putting grip. If you’re still us­ing a grip of stan­dard thick­ness, just the dif­fer­ent feel­ing of hold­ing this grip can do won­ders for a shaky stroke. It has saved plenty of ca­reers on the pro­fes­sional tours, be­lieve me, and can make putting fun for you again. haney is one of Golf Digest’s 50 Best Teach­ers in Amer­ica.
