MY TRICK FOR HOL­ING ALL THE SHORT ONES

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

▶ You’ve prob­a­bly heard some­one tell you to keep your head still when you’re on the green – es­pe­cially if you’re try­ing to hole a short putt. The ad­vice is well in­tended. The less you move, the less chance you will twist the put­ter­face open or closed and miss the putt. No steer­ing! Un­for­tu­nately, lock­ing down your head can add a de­gree of ten­sion and pre­vent you from mak­ing a con­fi­dent, re­laxed stroke. Since we’re on the sub­ject of vi­sion on this page, I’ve got a bet­ter way to help you con­trol the put­ter as you make your stroke. In­stead of think­ing about keep­ing your head still, your swing thought should be keep my eyes still. You’ll no­tice right away that it has the same ef­fect of min­imis­ing body move­ment, but it doesn’t add ex­tra ten­sion to the stroke.
