How to get the ball up to the hole - and fin­ish

Rutherglen Reformer - - Rugby -

Dun­can Wil­liamson this week ex­plained how he man­aged to rec­tify a putting prob­lem that had been hold­ing his own game back:

“I’d been hav­ing some prob­lems with my putting, I just wasn’t get­ting the ball up to the hole.

“I needed some­thing to visu­alise where I held the fin­ish.

“I used a train­ing aid called the eye­line, which al­lows you to see where the ball should be in re­la­tion to your eyes and let me see where the fin­ish of my putt should be.

“This trained me to com­plete the stroke.

“The key is to get your eyes right above the ball and make sure your stroke goes right through to the hole. If you’re on your heels, then you will pull the put­ter to the left, caus­ing you to de­cel­er­ate. That’s why I wasn’t get­ting the ball up to the hole.

“Ever since, I’ve felt more com­fort­able, and more con­fi­dent go­ing on to the green.

“Get your­self into the habit of do­ing the right things when you putt and just keep do­ing it.”

Even the pro­fes­sion­als strug­gle with el­e­ments of their game some­times, and this week Dun­can ex­plains how he ad­dressed an is­sue that had crept into his play
