2 Quick Putting Tips For Long and Short Putts

Posted by | Putting | 282 Comments

Unlike many golf instructors who feel the need to over complicate the way to improve your game, Brian believes that the secret to achieving your best in putting (and all parts of the game for that matter) is to master just a few basic concepts.

This video uses The Synchronizer training aid to help you learn 2 powerful techniques that all great putters know and use.

1. Keep the body quiet or still to eliminate variables


2. Hold your finish out in front of you on the follow through to guarantee a smooth stroke.

You can work these tips on your own but using The Synchronizer is like having an instructor there with you giving you feedback for continual improvement.

Using The Synchronizer on short putts, if you move your body, you will see it in your peripheral vision as it moves with your body – instant feedback for correction while practicing putting.

Using The Synchronizer on long putts, you will feel your front forearm and elbow touch the arm and you will hold it there. If you don’t make it there, then you didn’t have as smooth of a follow through which means you injected some measure of “jabbing” into your putting stroke.  Watch the video and comment below:

Tips on Putting In The Wind

Posted by | In the News, Putting | 42 Comments

11314542_xxlWHO: Phil Mickelson
WHAT: A missed two-foot par putt
WHERE: 243-yard par 3 11th hole at Royal St. George’s
WHEN: Final round of the British Open

After years of futility on the greens at the British Open, Mickelson finally seemed to have figured out how to putt in the wind and on links courses. At the 11th hole on Sunday, Mickelson was six under-par for his final round, just one shot behind Darren Clarke. Up to that point, Mickelson was draining putts with ease in the gusty conditions.

Then Mickelson’s yips returned. At 11, he had a two-footer for par. Instead of marking the ball, he nonchalantly addressed it and rammed the putt too hard so it hit the right side of the cup and lipped out. An easy par turned into a deflating bogey. The gaffe discombobulated Mickelson, and he made three more bogies in his final seven holes to finish three shots behind Clarke, who seemed to make every putt — long and short — at Royal St. George’s.

I learned how to putt in the wind while watching Andy North win the 1978 U.S. Open at Cherry Hills. It was a windy final round, and Andy, a tall man like Mickelson and Clarke, had to hunker down to remain stable on the greens. Andy had a two-shot lead at 18, a hard par 4, when he chunked his third shot, a pitch, into a front greenside bunker. After a great sand shot to four feet, North bent down over the bogey putt to brace himself against the wind (and the pressure), and he drained it to win.

THE DRILL: Putting in the wind requires you to modify your stance. You need to widen your feet, toe in your toes and hunch over a bit at the waist. Doing those things will lower your center of gravity and brace your body.

Brian-MoggUsing that putting stance, do this drill on the practice green to prepare for putting in wind or pressure situations: Hit long putts holding the putter with only your right hand, because the right hand controls feel on the greens. So hitting putts with just the right hand will teach you how to lag long putts close to the hole. Also, hit short putts holding the putter with only the left hand, because the left hand is most responsible for guiding the putter through the stroke.


Putting drill: Make all of your 4 foot putts

Daniel Coyle, author of the book “The Talent Code” would be proud of the putting drill in this video below.

The basic premise of “The Talent Code” is to make practice extremely efficient in developing the precise motor skills necessary for the task in competition. Often this meant devising unorthodox practice techniques that Coyle calls:

Deep Practice

Here’s a quote from a book review:

“Journalist Daniel Coyle spent years investigating talent hotbeds, interviewing world-class practitioners (top soccer players, violinists, fighter, pilots, artists, and bank robbers) and neuroscientists. In clear, accessible language, he presents a solid strategy for skill acquisition in athletics, fine arts, languages, science or math that can be successfully applied through a person s entire lifespan.”

Brian’s drill for keeping your putts on the your target line is a perfect example of how you can develop a Touring Pro’s 92% consistency at making putts under 4 feet.

If you read the book, you would agree that Brian’s tip here is definitely “Deep Practice” for putting mastery.

It’s no wonder he has produced more tour winners than any other golf coach out there.

“For example, in 2007 the PGA
golfers made 99:2% of their putts of length 3 feet or less. From distances greater than 3 feet and less than or equal
to 4 feet, the percentage drops to 91:5%.”
