MEA­SURE YOUR DIS­TANCE

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

With your aim set, you want to take ad­van­tage of it by swing­ing the put­ter on line. This is de­ter­mined by the near-to-far ball po­si­tion. If you stand too close to the ball, you’ll make an out-to-in stroke. Too far away, and the stroke path will be in to out. Most tour pros stand 2¼ to 2¾ put­ter­heads from the in­side edge of the ball to the toe line (left). Put­ter­heads range from 10.8 to 11.5 cen­time­tres long. To con­firm your dis­tance is good, have a friend make sure your put­ter­head tracks slightly to the in­side on the back­stroke and in­side again after im­pact.
