Chris's Tips

Monday June 25th 2018


Putting can be both the most frustrating and rewarding part of the game of golf.  There are many ways to get it done.  Some like to put aggressively and take a straighter line while others like to die the ball in.  Some also prefer to strike the ball with a short quick stroke like Brandt Snedeker while other prefer a long flowing stoke like David Toms.  Have you ever had confusion as to what kind of stroke to use?  Have you ever had a tough time deciding which line to choose based on your speed?

   

                         

One more crucial factor to consider is the type of putter that you choose for your individual stroke.  No putter over the past few decades has been more dominant on Tours and top amateurs than the Titleist Scotty Cameron Putter.  Scotty is entrusted by some of the greats in the game (Tiger Woods included) to make putters for their games.  Through his experience he has found that different golfers want more toe flow or less toe flow. 

 

When choosing both your stroke and your putter consider which one you prefer.  If you have maximum arc and toe flow consider a heel shafted putter with maximum Toe Hang.  If you are someone who wants very little arc and tow flow consider a face balanced putter.  And if you are in between a medium flow putter could work nicely for you.
