  • Short putting tips.

  • This is the right place.

  • So today we are going to look at some things that are going to help with our short putting.

  • And one thing that I've learned in the last 33 years of coaching and the last 50 years

  • of playing golf.

  • Is that if we can hole more short putts.

  • We enjoy golf more and our score gets lower.

  • So if you are interested in this stay tuned.

  • Hello.

  • I'm Brian Fitzgerald The Golf Doctor.

  • And I have been a golf pro now for 33 years.

  • And I have got a lot of tips and tricks that I like to show along the way.

  • If you are new to this channel.

  • Welcome.

  • If you want to be kept up to date and not miss anything.

  • You can subscribe and hit the bell icon to make sure you get notified of all the tips.

  • So today we are going to be looking at short putting tips.

  • So I am going to give you a list of things for you to do that will all help you to hole

  • more short putts.

  • So the first thing I notice when I watch a lot of my clients.

  • With their short putting.

  • Is they have a lot of movement.

  • And it's a lot of leg movement.

  • So any time we have a lot of leg movement.

  • It is very difficult to control one, the pace of the putting stroke.

  • And two it is also difficult to control the club face alignment at impact.

  • So we want to keep leg movement to a minimum.

  • So if I try and putt this hole and I have got a bit of leg movement.

  • I just missed it to the left.

  • So that's what I see a lot of people doing.

  • And I did exaggerate it there.

  • You really don't want to have too much in the way of movement.

  • So a good visual image I like to get my clients to do is to pretend they are standing inside

  • a wine barrel.

  • And you put about 100 bags of rice all around the wine barrel.

  • So if we get into that situation there is just no way in the world you will get the

  • feeling that your legs can move.

  • So my legs are nice and secure.

  • They are packed in tight inside the wine barrel.

  • So if I keep my legs nice and still I am just swinging my hands, arms and shoulders.

  • And the ball can go in.

  • So that's the first thing.

  • Keep the legs quiet.

  • The next thing along the way is we don't want to watch the ball go in the hole.

  • It's when we start to watch the ball going in the hole that we start to miss.

  • So Gary Player once said the more important the putt the less he looked.

  • He tried to listen to the ball going into the hole rather than see it going in to the

  • hole.

  • So this is just over three feet.

  • So on all of these 3 footers we want to try and listen to the ball going in.

  • Try to avoid moving our head.

  • Just in my eyes and I think it's my eyes following the ball.

  • It actually moves my head and moves my shoulders.

  • So we want to keep our head nice and still.

  • Swing it back and through.

  • And we listen to it going in.

  • I hear it going in.

  • If you don't hear it obviously you missed.

  • But the more important the putt.

  • The longer we just listen to the ball going in.

  • So the next thing we need to focus on with our short putts is.

  • We want to make sure.

  • We practice with our eyes closed.

  • Practicing with our eyes closed or hitting balls, swinging with your eyes closed is a

  • great propreoceptive way of training.

  • With our eyes open we get distracted.

  • And we start looking at the putter going back and we can look at an ant crawling across

  • or a fly.

  • It is very easy to get distracted in this game.

  • So It's a great training drill to practice with our eyes closed.

  • So I have got my set up here now.

  • When I am comfortable.

  • I am going to close my eyes.

  • And then I hit the putt.

  • So my eyes were closed.

  • As soon as I heard it.

  • A little bit like the last tip.

  • I heard it go in so I knew it had gone in.

  • I was able to open my eyes.

  • So if you can practice this with your eyes closed.

  • It's great.

  • I know a lot golf pros actually putt with their eyes closed when they get a bit twitchy

  • over the putts.

  • So ah it's a good way of focusing your attention and just going by the feel.

  • The next thing we want to do is we want to make sure that under pressure one part of

  • us is in control of the putter.

  • And I think one of the biggest mistakes people make is they try and get both hands equal

  • or they are trying to get both hands not in control.

  • And they are trying to rock the shoulders.

  • The shoulders do rock but it is not something you really want to try and achieve.

  • Because if you think about rocking the shoulders.

  • You are going to be moving your body as well.

  • So I always like to think that it is my right hand that is in control.

  • And of ll of the digits on my right hand.

  • Its my right thumb and it is my right pointer finger.

  • So as I take my grip and set up there.

  • I put my hand in it's rightful place.

  • I put my left hand behind my back and I just practice letting my right hand pull the putter

  • back and push the putter through.

  • It might be that you find it better with your left hand.

  • It doesn't have to one or the other.

  • You just need to find out what is best for you.

  • Over all of my practice.

  • I feel my right hand is better.

  • But I have other people that I know putt with their left hand.

  • So you just need to work out which is better for you.

  • So we stand here.

  • We get our hand in the right position.

  • Put the left hand behind our back.

  • And then we putt.

  • It wasn't the smoothest of putting strokes.

  • But the beauty of this is with your right hand only your brain will find a way to square

  • up the putter face at impact.

  • You will see it wobble.

  • It won't look fantastic.

  • But you will find it much easier to square that putter face up at impact which is going

  • to help you to hit a lot more putts.

  • The next thing we need to work on is speed.

  • That last putt just barely fell in as we did that.

  • You notice that if I had of hit it harder it probably would have missed so it's a great

  • idea to work on speed control.

  • There are two types of golfers.

  • There are those that like to ram the ball in the back of the hole.

  • And there are those golfers that just like to let the ball die into the hole.

  • Ah and when I picture it I must admit I have tried banging it in the hole and it works.

  • Some of the time for me.

  • But I don't like it when I hit the lip and it horse shoes out.

  • So am more conservative by nature with that so I like to see the ball going in at the

  • right speed.

  • So the mental picture that I have is that when the ball goes in the hole.

  • It goes in and it sits on top of th hole where the flag stick goes.

  • I really don't want to watch the ball hit the back of the cup.

  • I like to see the ball just fall into the hole that the flag stick rests in.

  • So as I am putting here I am trying to hit it that the speed that I need to get that

  • putter just rolling on the front edge of the hole and into the bottom of th cup.

  • That one just fell straight into the bottom of the cup and that is my right speed.

  • As I said it may not work for you.

  • Yeou might feel a lot more comfortable taking the break out of the putt and hitting it straight

  • at the back of the hole.

  • And there is nothing wrong with that.

  • You just need to train.

  • Try both methods.

  • And see which one works the best for you.

  • The other thing that I like to do is when I am approaching a putt.

  • I like to try and look at the back of the hole.

  • Because when I look at the back of the hole.

  • So this part around here.

  • As I stand here and look at it.

  • The back of the hole is much bigger than the front of the hole.

  • The problem with the front of the hole is it's a bit smaller.

  • It's actually the same size but just my perspective from this angle.

  • I can see a lot more of the back of the hole than a lot more of the front of the hole.

  • So as I am standing over the putt.

  • I am really looking at the widest part of the hole that I can.

  • That really helps me mentally.

  • Well there is a lot of hole there.

  • There is a lot more.

  • If I just focus on the very front.

  • It's a bit narrower.

  • So start looking toward the back of the hole and I think you are going to start holing

  • more putts.

  • And the next tip is quiet eye.

  • I have made a video on quiet eye.

  • And I will put a link at the top of the page all about that.

  • But essentially Dr Joan Vickers discovered that if we can keep our eyes nice and quiet

  • we can hole a lot more putts.

  • So one of the best ways of doing it is to put a dot on the golf ball.

  • So I have put the dot at the back of the ball.

  • And I take my setup and I have a couple of practice swings.

  • Then when I am comfortable and ready to go.

  • I set up.Get my alignment and what I now do is I am just thinking of that black dot.

  • Just staring at the black dot.

  • And I need to stare at it for about 2 seconds.

  • And then I am ready to pull the trigger.

  • And that is going to give me more of a chance of holing the putt.

  • So there are my 7 golf tips for holing more short putts.

  • So any one of those tips is going to help you to make a big difference to how you hole

  • short putts.

  • But if you can work on all 7 of them.

  • I think you will find that your putting average is going to go down.

  • And if your putting average goes down you are certainly going to have a better score.
