Think about this for a second. On a standard par seventy-two golf course, thirty-six of those shots are designated to be putts. This equates to relying on your putter for half of your game! You are looking for putting tips, here's the first one - Practice your putting. Most amateur golfers will spend many hours at the driving range working with every other club in the bag, but little or no time putting on the practice green. Make use of this facility before your round, and you will at least have some idea of the speed of the green. The Putting Stroke Every club that you use is swung back and through on an arc (swing plane), except your putter. Putters are the most upright clubs and are designed to swing straight back and straight through in a pendulum-like action. Practice this pendulum swing, and you will find that the club face is always square at impact, and the ball will start off on the correct line. Reading Greens No written golf putting tips can teach you how to read a green, there are too many variables. Your green-reading skills will come from experience, (or paying a caddie to read them for you!). I can, however, give you a few general pointers. Almost every green that you play on will have a downward slope from back to front. Golf course designers do this to make them more receptive to approach shots, and to allow for good drainage. If your putt is from front to back of green, you will be putting uphill. It may not look it, but it will be uphill. Try to judge the speed of your putt first, before allowing for any break. If you get the speed right but mis-read the break, you're most likely gonna be left with a tap-in. Get the speed majorly wrong and you'll be struggling not to three-putt. Putting Tips Finale Practice makes, well almost, perfect. Practice your putting stroke - straight through, pendulum-like to start the ball off on the right line. Practice getting the length right - aim for no more than two putts per green. Practice reading the breaks - you will get better with experience. When these three elements come together, your game is taken to a whole new level and you'll see your scores tumble.
