Putting Line Up

Often the best tips are the simplest and this fits that category. To help lining up a putt, very simply I always suggest after marking the ball on the green, place the manufacturers name or markings that form a straight line pointing towards the hole, as in the picture. Then when you place the putter behind the ball, the lines that you no doubt have on the top or the back of your putter will form a continuous straight line with those markings on the ball and this will make it easier to see if you are aiming the putter head correctly.

Do bear in mind, that this works fine for a straight putt, if however the putt is a sloping one, then you need to aim the golf ball markings and thus the putter head where you wish the ball to start it’s roll to allow for the slope.


On a separate note, is it just me or does the Ping putter used in this feature look like a person on a motorbike!!
