QUICK FIX: Those dreaded three putts on a hole could be avoided if your pace control is improved and with a little time and effort it won’t take much for you to see your score come tumbling down.
Those dreaded three or four putts on a hole could be avoided if your pace control is improved and it won’t take much for you to sink more putts and see your score come tumbling down.
Ensure your backswing and follow through are relatively equal in length. Do not decelerate on your downswing for a shorter putt or quickly accelerate on longer putts. Accelerate smoothly to create the same strike and sound.
Ensure you line up and strike the ball from the same spot on the face each time, allowing greater consistency of strike and pace. Matching the weight and design of your putter with the speed and pace of the greens you play regularly are also key considerations for achieiving distance control.
