How To Perfect Your Putt So You Are Putting Like A Pro

By: Gregg Hall

As a kid when someone mentions golfing the first thing that you will remember is going to your local place to putt and putting with your family. Even though when you were golfing back then it will begin to help you once you grow up and see that when you play a game of golf you need to be able to make a good putt. If you are a golfer then you know that you need to know how to putt well. Putting is probably the hardest part of golf that you will have to learn how to do. For some it's easy but others a disaster. You will need to learn how to hold the club when putting and then learn how to make the putt itself.

The first thing that you will need to learn about putting knows the distance from your club to the hole that you are trying to make. When you putt you wont need to hit the ball as hard as you can anymore you will need to hit the ball less so you can make it nice and easy into the hole in which you are putting. You will need to know how far it is from your club to the hole and you should be able to make a putt by knowing just this. You can walk from your club to the hole and measure in your head how far it is then try and make your shot. This will allow you to actually get a good feel of how far it is away then you can try and make your putt. So for every foot your ball must travel you should pull the putter back an inch.

When you are putting you should also never allow your head to move. When you move your head and eyes then your eyes will think that you need hit the ball harder but you really don't because you are already in position to make the putt. You will not want to move your head until the ball is out of your sight. After the ball is out of your sight then you can move your head but you still need to practice on your putting if you move your head. People who move their heads will think that they are doing well but the key to a good putt is staying still and intact.

So the next time someone says look at me for a picture when you are about to putt just makes your putt then take the picture. Just be sure that you don't move your head until you hit the ball with your club. So just take your time when you putt and you should start getting your putt down like a pro. If you still cannot get your putt down then you just need to go get some practice in and start going to putt a little more then usual. If you have your putt down good enough then you can start really playing golf with some of your friends.
