The Art of Rolling the Ball

Participants of the putting clinic received a wealth of information during our session.  A recap of some of the key points we learned.

Grip the putter more in the palm of your hand to reduce the amount of movement your hands must make.  Bend over from your waist so that your arms hang straight down.

Keep your alignment parallel to the target line. Use the line on the golf ball to help align your putts.

Read the break.  See the line. Stare at the line of your putt longer than you look at the golf ball.

The right speed means hitting a putt so the ball that misses the cup finishes 14 to 18 inches past the hole.

It takes practise!
