The most vital part of our golf game is putting
On average, the number of putts we take per round will fluctuate from 28 for the pros to 40 and over for the higher handicap golfer. Usually that means that approximately a third of all our golf shots are putts. How many of us use a third of our practice time on the putting green or anytime finding out about reading putting greens?
All of us who struggle with our putting can benefit from these putting tips and you will improve rapidly. These tips have helped me get over the "yips" and have made a marked improvement in my putting. If you can improve your putting by only 10% that will equate to bettering your scores by 2 to 4 shots per round and even more for others.
You may have seen on TV that many professionals are now scoring their golf balls with a thin black or colored line, Tiger Woods being one of them. They do this to aid their alignment while putting. The main benefit of doing this, is to have one less thing to think about while making a putt. I will explain more on this shortly but the less we all have to think about while putting the better. The more positive and relaxed we can be, the more putts we will make.
