Putter Face And Path Control

These two could arguably be separated, and arguably could be put together. I think that they belong together, since most drill that works on one of these two pieces also works on the other one. Your job is to find a repeatable position and to use your body, arms, and hands to swing the putter in a way in which the putter head follows a natural arc and the face stays relatively square to that movement. Do not get bogged down trying to create a perfectly symetrical stroke. It is more important to learn how the rib cage and shoulders are the engine of the putting motion and the hands help guide that motion to control feel. Below are some of the best drills I have used to help players developed a consistent, athletic, and predictable stroke.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:03,000
Okay, so we're on to the final key is to starting the ball online.

00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:06,000
So we're already assuming that you have a stable lower body,

00:00:06,000 --> 00:00:09,000
you have good visual alignment, and you have good physical alignment.

00:00:09,000 --> 00:00:14,000
Now the fourth and fifth key are putter face and putter path control.

00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:20,000
Putter face control, these two could arguably be separated into

00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:24,000
separate entities, but I think that most drills that work on them work on them together.

00:00:24,000 --> 00:00:28,000
So we're going to teach them as one unit, putter face and putter path.

00:00:28,000 --> 00:00:34,000
Okay, so check the next series of drills because we're going to go through how to make sure that

00:00:34,000 --> 00:00:38,000
your putter is moving on a really good and consistent arc.
