HOW I FIND THE OP­TI­MUM SET-UP

Us­ing a mir­ror sets my eyes in the per­fect po­si­tion.

Golf World (UK) - - Jason Day -

“The first thing my­self and Colin do every week on the prac­tice putting green at a tour event is cal­i­brate my putting set-up. I use a mir­ror on the ground and

a de­vice we call ‘the guru’. This makes sure my left eye is over the top of the ball and slightly in­side the tar­get line.

“This is the op­ti­mum po­si­tion for me to see the putt with­out any par­al­lax – the ef­fect where the po­si­tion or di­rec­tion of an ob­ject ap­pears to dif­fer when viewed from dif­fer­ent po­si­tions. In sim­ple terms, if your head and eyes aren’t in the cor­rect po­si­tion over the ball, you won’t be able to ac­cu­rately see a straight line to the hole.

“You must ad­dress the ball in a way that en­ables you to make a con­sis­tent, con­trolled and re­peat­able stroke with only min­i­mal com­pen­sa­tions.”
