Go with the flow

For those who feel stuck over the ball or have a tendency to jerk the club back when putting, it can be really helpful to feel that you’re in constant motion on the greens.

While practising putting technique and building a repeatable stroke is vital, when you’re out playing it’s important to remember to feel the putter in your hands and make a free-flowing stroke. Focussing on moving reduces the time for tension to build in your shoulders, arms and hands. Try practising this on the putting green and find a rhythm to your putting routine which feels comfortable. Some will move the putter blade above the ball, others like to add a little extra movement in their shoulders. The key is to never be too still over the ball before you start your stroke. I hope this helps free you up and you make some more putts this season.
