FACE ALIGNMENT IS THE KING WHEN IT COMES TO PUTTING
Alignment is so important but can be a problem so Mitchell Price gives some tips.
This drill is designed to help you
consistently set the putter face aligned to your intended target and to help you get the ball rolling online.
Start by finding a straight putt on the practice green. This can be done by rolling a number of putts and watching whether they curve to the left or to the right.
Enjoy holing more putts. STEP 1
Once you have found your straight putt, attach the end of the chalk line behind the centre of the hole, perhaps using a golf tee. Stretch the chalk line 8 to 10 feet down the line of your straight putt. Pull the line taught, press against the ground, and snap the line a couple of times to mark a straight line on the green. STEP 2
This represents a perfectly straight line for a perfectly straight putt directly to the middle of the hole. Start with a short putt of 3 or 4 feet, and place the ball on the chalk line. STEP 3
As you set the putter behind the ball, use the chalk line as a guide to ensure that the club face is square. The line will also be helpful as you align your body.
Stroke the putt by bringing the club straight back and straight through down the target line. With each putt, step out of your posture and set up once again from scratch. This will help you internalize the setup and alignment process.
