Do you struggle to improve your putting? Do you know if your ball is bouncing or skidding offline?
In the New Free Video below, I’ll show you how you can use a great new training aid called the Putting Mat to identify this problem.
As a BONUS I will also give you some tips on how to get a good roll by perfecting your stroke. Put those two together and we should be able to fix this frustrating problem for good!
You may be very surprised to learn that you can hit a putt with the perfect speed and the perfect line and still miss that putt.
So if you have the perfect speed and the perfect line, what’s the missing link?
If you expect to improve your putting and can’t consistently put a good roll on the ball, it will tend to bounce on the green and get thrown off-line.
At this point it doesn’t matter how good your green reading, speed, or starting line are, you’re gonna miss the putt.
Why The Heck Does Your Putter Head Need Loft?
Imagine for me, a giant golf ball sitting in your front yard. It’s going to be sitting down in the turf right?
Your putter is designed with a certain amount of loft, average loft being between 4-5 degrees. If you swing perfectly level through the ball and you have a couple of degrees of forward shaft lean, it’s still going to have around 1-3 degrees of loft on the putter face.
This is what’s going to get that ball up, out of the grass and rolling smoothly on the green.
Things can go wrong when we have:
- Too little loft, or hitting down on the ball. This smashes the ball down into the ground and then it pops up. You can see an example of this below.
- Too much loft, or hitting up on the ball. This will do the opposite and make the ball jump into the air.
Both produce the same result: the ball will bounce off-line.
The key is to get the ball rolling smoothly right away. If you can do that, the ball will hold its line much better than if it starts hopping and hitting inconsistent spots in the green.
How Can The Putting Mat Help Improve Your Putting?
THE LINES DON’T LIE!
There’s no arguing with the picture above, this just illustrates how well the Putting Mat works.
On The Right:
Here you can see me pointing to the spot where the ball started. In this case, I hit up on the ball and, in doing so, added way too much loft to the putter. The dotted line, as you will see in the New Free Video below is actually my ball bouncing and skidding along the putting surface.
There’s roughly 2 feet of space between my finger and when the ball first touches the ground!
If the ball isn’t even on the ground for the first 2 feet of the putt, how can we expect it to start on-line, or stay on-line?
On The Left:
If you’re looking to improve your putting, that’s what we want to see! I know, my putter looks like the Millennium Falcon or a Stormtrooper’s head gear, but LOOK AT THAT STRIPE, BABY!
This is a picture of a ball that has started rolling smoothly and online right away. This is the picture that will put cash in your pocket and a club championship trophy in the palm of your hands.
