PER­CEP­TION MUST MATCH RE­AL­ITY

Today's Golfer (UK) - - PHIL KENYON -

One mis­con­cep­tion is that the eyes must be over the ball. But that’s not strictly true. It varies player to player, be­cause what’s im­por­tant is how you see straight or square. To find out, pace out a 10ft putt and then place a ruler un­der­neath a ball so it points di­rectly at the cen­tre of the hole. As you take your ad­dress, note how your per­cep­tion and where the ruler points changes as you al­ter your neck bend or ad­just your dis­tance from the ball. The im­por­tant thing is that the ruler looks like it’s point­ing dead cen­tre. Once you find that po­si­tion, re­set again and again un­til you are con­fi­dent that you can setup in the same po­si­tion ev­ery time. It may seem te­dious, but it’s a great way to make sure your set up is con­sis­tent and cor­rect.
