‘Think ‘solid wrists’ to im­prove your long-range dis­tance con­trol’

Golf World (UK) - - TOUR TIPS -

I of­ten see am­a­teurs move the put­ter head away from the ball quite quickly with the hands and wrists. That cre­ates in­con­sis­tent clubhead speed, mak­ing it very dif­fi­cult to con­trol dis­tance. Pros and good put­ters al­most lock their arms against their torso and move the put­ter with the big mus­cles by rock­ing their shoul­ders while keep­ing the wrists very solid. This makes it much eas­ier to con­trol the speed of the put­ter head so there’s a steady and grad­ual ac­cel­er­a­tion into the ball and con­sis­tent dis­tance con­trol. The put­ter must move at a sim­i­lar pace to the speed you want the ball to come off the face.
