HOW TO PUTT SIDESADDLE

TIPS OF PUTTING SIDESADDLE

If you have problems with your short putts, you should consider putting side saddle. I will continue to have video on the technique you need to putt successfully sidesaddle. STAY TUNED

MORE ON FACE ON PUTTING

  1. Can you do a video on long putts? I struggle so much with getting consistent contact on longer putts. I even “top” the ball occasionally, and I can’t seem to find anything that feels comfortable. Thanks!

    • Sometimes I use a short pop-stroke on the longer putts, making sure that you are always accelerating into the putt. I’ll do more coverage on some longer putts

      • I do the same (pop putt). I longer putts I have the ball closer to my front foot. On shorter putts a little more in front of me. If I use my shorter putt setup with a “longer” stroke I sometimes top the ball.

  2. Ther is a tendency on long putts to increase body involvement/movement and look up prior to striking the ball. The result is errant putts where you either top the ball or push it way off line. I’ve been able to improve accuracy on very long putts by 1, minimizing the tendency to take the putter back a long way; 2, using a regular stroke with a firm follow through; and, 3, keeping my eye focused on the putter striking the ball and not lifting my head up until after contact.
    Hope this might be useful for you. I really enjoy face-on putting and it has helped my enjoyment of golf much in the three months I’ve been using it.
