Take your hands out of the stroke

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

Ac­tive hands can do more harm than good when you’re on the green, be­cause they make it dif­fi­cult to keep the put­ter­face square to your putting line. In­stead, when you swing back and through, keep your grip light and feel like the mo­tion of the put­ter is be­ing gen­er­ated by a small turn­ing, not rocking, of the shoul­ders. If the hands stay pas­sive, this slight shoul­der turn will al­low the face to move on a small arc yet re­main square to your putting line. Bet­ter face con­trol means more made putts.
