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