Putting Lesson

What We Do

Helping you channel your full potential

For me, putting is all about good fundamentals.  If you have sound technique and belief in your method you will make more putts.

Putting

What is putting?  According to the English Oxford Living Dictionaries, to putt is to, “Try to hit a golf ball into the hole by striking it gently so that it rolls across the green” simple?

Some would suggest that putting is a natural gift, that some have, and some do not.  Some would say that it is a science that can be learned, and others would say, that putting ability is gained through trial and error and years of experience.

I would not be so bold as to disagree with any of these sentiments, however, the reality is that putting is a combination of them all.

A far better description of what makes a great putter would be, a player who combines the science of putting with the ability to read greens and visualise the putts break.  Combine these with the ability to control the balls speed and therefore distance makes a great putter.

 

The Fundamentals

Green Reading

I have watched golfers study the green intensely who have decided on a putting line that was nowhere even close to the one they were faced with.  They hit the putt, shrug their shoulders and say I must try a new putter?

The reason we start off the practical element of our putting course with green reading is that this is such an important aspect of good putting and the foundation on which everything else is developed.

Set Up

Putting biomechanics is a term that relates to study and analysis of the mechanics of the golfers set up and stroke, to gain a better understanding of putting performance.

Good putting requires that you to perfect your ability to consistently adopt a stance and posture, that is conducive to good putting and maintain dynamic balance throughout your putting stroke.

Speed & Distance Control

All putts have many configurations of line and pace that could be successful.  The faster the ball travels, the less the break affects the ball.  Conversely the slower the ball travels the more the break affects its line.

The art is to find the combination that allows the ball to travel on the line that you have picked, with enough pace to stay on the line but to go no further than 18” past the hole, if you miss.  This ensures that the ball will at least have a chance to go in on the first putt.  But, you will be left with a very short second putt if the first misses the hole.  Between the line and the pace, pace if the more important.

My Approach

When you compare the putting statistics of pro and amateur golfers, it’s no surprise that the pros putt significantly better than the average amateur.  However, putting is not dependent on your physical fitness, strength, speed or power.     

We know, that with the right information and focused practice anyone can become a good putter.  We developed our putting programme based on scientific research, tour statistics and the most up to date approach to developing skill.  We will teach you how to read the greens on any course more effectively and provide you with a clear understanding of the biomechanics of the putting stroke.  We will help you develop a consistent and repeatable stroke within a pre- shot and execution routine that will help you make more putts.
