Hey guys, Scott Baxter from PlayYourCourse.com here, and today, PlayYourCourse instructor Jeremy Franks, is going to teach you a simple tip that will improve your putting instantly. Enjoy.
Hello, my name is Jeremy Franks and I’m the lead instructor for PlayYourCourse and the Head Golf Professional here at James River Country Club in Newport News, Virginia.
Today I’m going to give you a quick and simple drill to help improve your putting, shave strokes off your game, and have more fun on the course. Most people struggle with long putts and end up 3 putting because they don’t know where to aim. This is a simple solution and easy drill to remember
that will help you start the ball on the right line.
Number 1; we want to aim directly at the hole in our mind and ask ourselves, If I were to putt this to the hole, where would the ball end up?
And as you can see over here we have the tee just right of the cup and that’s where we’ve already determined in our minds that’s where the ball will break to.
So once you have that, you take the distance between the pin and the tee and move that tee in your mind to this side of the hole and make your putt.
So to recap; I’ve determined the distance between the cup and the tee where the ball, if hit in a straight line, will roll to. So for the drill; I’m going to take this tee
and move it the exact same distance on this side as we put that tee in. So my next goal will just be to hit it in a straight line at the tee on the left, knowing that it’s going to break towards the hole. Let’s give that a shot, shall we? Not too bad.
I hope you enjoyed Jeremy’s tip, and if you’re anything like me having a point of reference for something to aim for on long putts is really going to help your putting, and hopefully eliminate a lot of 3 putts from your game. Most people don’t realize how easy it is to make dramatic improvements to their golf game.
I definitely didn’t.
I’m not a certified golf instructor like Jeremy. I’m just your average golfer that used to struggle to break 100. But after a 1 hour lesson I shaved 10 strokes off my game by just fixing some of the obvious things I was doing wrong. A couple quick tips and I fixed the slice on my drive and learned how to better handle long putts.
I was baffled how easy it was to make quick improvements to my game after swinging golf clubs the same way for over 20 years.
The truth is, if you’re working with a good coach who knows their stuff, they’re going to have tons of tips and quick adjustments that you’ve never heard that will instantly fix problem areas in your game. The only reason it took so long for me to try my first lesson, and maybe you’re the same way, is I didn’t have any idea how to get started much less how to tell a good instructor from a total hack.
This struggle to find good instruction is exactly why I created PlayYourCourse.com to make it easier for golfers, like you and I, to find amazing instruction.
