Professional Golf Tips 101

Professional Golf Tip of the Week: Proper putting technique

When we putt our intention is to have a unified grip that allows the shoulders to direct the putter on a correct path.  Even with a sound grip though, one hand will dominate over the other. The key is to train the non-dominating hand to not break down. 

Try this drill:  hit 10 putts at 10 feet with just your left arm. Then try 10 putts from 10 feet with just your right arm. The arm that feels uncoordinated and tends to have more trouble making a good stroke is the arm that you need to practice with alone to ensure that that motion becomes more reliable and repetitive.

Rosedale Director of Instruction and PGA Professional Steve Whidden will be offering a new professional golf tip each week. Be sure to check for next week's tip.
