Confident Putting Will Sink More Putts

For the last 2 weeks we have been summarizing the success that Martin Kaymer and Michelle Wie had in the US Open with their putting.  This week I have collected facts to duplicate their putting success.  Every green has a different surface and speed based on the contour and the condition of the grass surface.  Only you can get a feel for the speed of the greens as they will change based on the moisture, grass height and rolling speed of the green.  Putting can be up to 50% of your strokes in a round of golf so you really should pay attention to these tips.

PUTT WITH CONFIDENCE:   
A good putt consists of 3 components: learn a smooth swing, commit to the right line and swing for the right distance.  Adam Scott, the world’s #1 golfer, is using a new planning system to estimate the slope of the green and deciding on his target line.  By choosing the severity of the slope he is committing to a plan for the break that he is expecting.  He is setting a plan and committing to the plan.  He must be on the right track so why not set a plan for each of your putts to swing with commitment and confidence.

 

Golf Digest used this image of Tiger Woods to show that he putts with his shoulders and spine.  His wrists are locked.

Golf Digest used this image of Tiger Woods to show that he putts with his shoulders and spine. His wrists are locked and he swings directly up the target line.

Develop a Smooth and Confident Swing:
1/STOP using the small muscles in your arms and wrists to putt.  Your small muscles tighten and cause the shaking motion (the YIPPS) in your swing.  To solve this problem, the professionals lock their wrists and putt by rocking their spine and shoulders.
2/ Avoid the death grip on your putter as your shoulders and spine must be relaxed.  Your grip still needs to be firm to lock your putter in your hands.
3/ Shorter putts should always be straight back and straight up the line of your intended target point.  Longer putts will require more backswing so you may find yourself rotating around your body from the inside but you need to finish straight up your intended target line.

Commit to a line.  
1/ Commitment is the first step to confidence.  Use a line on your ball to line up with your target line.  It just helps your mind confirm that you have committed to a line.
2/ MINIMIZE the Break by Sinking the Putt before your ball slows down:  70% to 90% of the break occurs as your ball slows down in the last 10% of the distance rolled.  How often have you seen Tiger’s ball drop firmly into the hole (without the final curl on his putt)?  Eliminate most of the break by planning to hit 12 to 18 inches past the hole.  NOTE: Wear and tear near the hole from hole insertion, club damage when pressed on the green and careless ball removal distort the roll of your ball.  Reasonable ball speed is the only way to minimize the impact of these unforeseen problems.
3/ Uphill putts break a lot less because you need more speed to get your ball up the hill so you should take a more direct line for uphill putts.

Practice for the Right Distance
1/  Before you play a round of golf make sure that you get a feel for the speed of the greens by using the practice green.  They change every day based on many factors.
2/  After you choose your line, take 2 or 3 practice swings with the exact stroke and cadence that you need to hit the ball 12 inches past the hole.  Step up to the ball, check your line and duplicate your practice swing.

Increase your odds of sinking more putts by developing a smooth “up the line” swing, practice your putting and pay attention to your misses.  GOLFSTR+  is an excellent training aid to develop your confidence by locking your wrists during the putting stroke.  Practice with GOLFSTR+  For Every Swing in Your Game: Click here to check out all of the uses for GOLFSTR+.

Michelle Wei did It Too!

Michelle Wei won the Women’s US Open.  Just like Martin Kaymer, her putting was amazing.  She used superior putting all week for the two-shot victory, with no three-putt greens over 72 holes – including 25 one-putt holes.  She may have a crazy stance with her torso horizontal to the ground but her consistent swing up the line made all the difference.  We need to learn from her success.

Why is she sinking putts?  After she lines up her putt she has total confidence that she has the right line so that she can focus on distance and impact down the lineCONFIDENCE sinks the putts. [More on Lineup and Confidence Next week.]

 

Michelle's Horizonal torso is a real killer on the back but her putts fantastic.

Michelle’s Horizontal torso is a real killer on the back but her putts are fantastic.

1/  She swings like a pendulum:  Straight back and straight down the line.
2/  She chooses her target line and takes practice swings for speed:  If she gets this right, she sinks the putt.
3/  She avoids any side spin on her putts:  Hitting straight down the line, with her ball slightly forward of the center of her stance, puts a straight top spin roll on her putts.

 

 

 

She follows through straight down her intended putting line.

She follows through straight down her intended putting line.

4/  She avoid the YIPPS.  She has ZERO wrist motion: All of her swing comes from the rotation of her spine and shoulders like a pendulum swinging from an axis point.  By eliminating wrist motion she avoids using the small muscles in her arms which cause you to shake in your back swing.  [Practice with GOLFSTR+ to lock your wrists and gain confidence in your putting.]

5/  She had the lie angle on her putter flattened slightly.  You don’t need to change your putt head to shaft angle but you do have to adjust your grip and stance to ensure that your putter head is horizontal to the ground.  And make sure that you impact the ball directly in the center (which should be the balance point) of your putter.

Should you try to duplicate her body position?
Not if you plan to golf for the next 20 or more years.  Your back will never hold out if you tried to putt with a 90 degree bend at the waist.  No other male or female on tour is trying to putt this way.  She is built like a rake and 6 foot 1 inch tall so this will compound her back problems in the future.  Mark my word, within 5 years you will see her change her horizontal body position when her back tells her to make the change.

You can duplicate all of Michelle Wie’s putting characteristics without putting your head directly over the ball.  Make sure that you build confidence with your putting stroke by wearing GOLFSTR+ to lock your wrist so that you have to swing with your spine and shoulders.  GOLFSTR+ helps you get the YIPPs out of your putting stroke (both back and through the ball).

Training Aid Helps Kaymer Win US Open

If you were watching the final round of the US Open you would have seen a clip showing Martin Kaymer practicing his takeaway with a Tennis Ball.  He just used it as a reminder to keep his arms close together and straight at the start of his swing.  It forces his chest to rotate with his arms.  Mike Weir and Michelle Wie do this same motion as a takeaway waggle before they swing.

There are 2 points that I want you to learn from Martin’s practice technique where he gently held a tennis ball between his forearms:

1/ He was using a Training Aid prior to the start of the final round of the US Open, which he won.  This is a serious golfer who was looking forward to winning almost $1.8 million in prize money and unlimited endorsement money.  If a basic training aid works as just a reminder for the Winner of the US Open shouldn’t your consider a training aid to help with every swing in your game?

This shot shows Martin Kaymer practicing with a yellow tennis ball hanging from his neck on the final day of the US Open. It REMINDS him to rotate his chest in the back swing.

This shot shows Martin Kaymer practicing with a yellow tennis ball hanging from his neck on the final day of the US Open. It REMINDS him to rotate his chest in the back swing.

2/ His training aid was a device that allowed him to swing a proper and complete swing.  It was only intended to remind him to keep his arms parallel at the start of the backswing.  By doing this he was forcing his spine to rotate and to turn his chest.   The tennis ball actually drops from his arms before he reached the horizontal with his leading arm.  You would think that a professional golfer could easily do this without a training aid.  Give your head a shake!

 

 

Wake-up golfers!  If you want to hit long controlled golf shots like Martin Kaymer, you need to use any device required to train that muscle between your ears.   You need muscle memory.  The more you practice the correct swing the more you will get it right on the golf course.

In some of the 6 training uses for GOLFSTR+ the plastic plate actually locks your wrist so that it stops your wrist from bending during the swing (putting, chipping, backswing and limited wrist lag chipping).  In Straight Leading Arm Backswing and Lag Training, GOLFSTR+ is only a reminder when you reach your limit.  Yes, it’s a reminder like the Martin Kaymer tennis ball.

Putting Gave the US Open to Kaymer

Rickie Fowler tied for second, 8 strokes off the lead in the US Open.  The score made it look like Martin Kaymer was the runaway winner but putting made the difference.  I hope you and Rickie were paying attention to Martin’s putts from off the green and on the green.  It made all the difference.

Commentators at the US Open talked about Rickie’s improved swing and control but they also said that his putting on the first 2 days kept him up with the leaders.  On the final round it became painfully obvious that Rickie was trying to let his putts die into the hole.  Big Mistake!

If your putts are curling around the hole and stopping inches past it then you are playing for a break that should never happen if you plan for your putt to run 12 to 18 inches past the hole.  Rickie could have saved 4 shots in his final 9 holes if he had only ignored the 1 degree of slope and hit firmly and directly at the hole.

Putting both on and off the green made all the difference.

Putting both on and off the green made all the difference for Martin.

Martin Kaymer was hitting amazing shots around the greens.  But he won the US Open with his putter:
Putting from Off the Green:  If he had a smooth access to the green (in the very short cut grass) Martin took all the risk of hitting fat chips by putting from off the green.  Chipping just adds a dimension of risk.  Getting a clean chip, the right bounce and the right run-out can be avoided by using the putter.   Whenever Martin had a chance to putt from off the green he made it count.

NOTE: Try gripping and swinging a hybrid or a 5 iron like a putter when hitting from off the green.   It helps you break the habit of hitting with the same pace as a putter.

 

Firm putts through the hole with confidence would have put Rickie neck and neck with Martin

Firm putts through the hole with confidence would have put Rickie neck and neck with Martin

Putting On the Green: There was a lot of TV coverage to let us see that Martin’s putts always sank with some pace.  They did not die into the hole.  He took the bumps and any minor slope (up to 1 degree angle) out of each putt by hitting firmly with confidence at the hole.  [CONFIDENCE IS THE KEY WORD HERE!]

You WILL improve your game by practicing lag putts from off the green and by planning your putts to run 10 to 18 inches past the hole. Remember that 100% of the putts that are short of the hole never go in so why are you hitting them short?

Both Rickie and Martin had locked leading wrists when they were putting.  [They were putting with their shoulders by rotating their spine to take any wrist motion out of their putts.]  GOLFSTR+ can give you the confidence to sink more putts by locking your leading wrist.  Practice with your GOLFSTR+ and save another 2 to 10 strokes in YOUR game.

Swing Speed and Follow Through: AHA Moment!

Practicing with GOLFSTR+ is critical to learning the right motion for each swing but without the right swing speed and follow through the results can be DEADLY.   This adjustment for each type of club should have a major impact on dropping your handicap.  ANOTHER AHA MOMENT!

Completing the proper swing for each of the 6 types of clubs will force you to shift your weight correctly.  It also gives your ball the right spin for more distance, direction control and run out.

SWING SPEED should reduce as you change clubs from the Driver down to the Pitching Wedge.  For the PGA Pros the driver speed averages 112 MPH and drops to an average of 83 MPH for the pitching wedge.  For the LPGA Pros it drops from 94 MPH to 70 MPH.    You may not be a pro but I suggest that you get with the program for better swing control.

Driver:  For your drives you tee up and place your ball forward in your stance for a good reason.  You want to impact with your ball after you pass the low point in your swing arc.  Your club head is driving up with maximum speed as you release your wrists through the ball.  You still need to drive your body forward and finish with your belt buckle facing the target.

Fairway Woods and Hybrids: Justin Rose reminds us to connect with the ball and finish the swing with limited impact with the ground.  It is the same swing as the driver but with a little less speed as you impact the ball at the bottom of your swing arcSo cut the tops off the grass and avoid the divots.

Irons:  These are intentionally narrow club heads to allow you to swing down to impact the ball before you connect with the turf.  You may take a divot but only in front of the initial ball position.  Your goal is to impart a downward (reverse) spin on the ball for more control. Power your swing through the turf to a balanced finish.  [This also applies for sand shots where you swing like an 8 iron and take 3-6 inches of sand after the ball.]  THIS SWING TIP WILL HAVE THE GREATEST IMPACT ON LOWERING YOUR SCORE BY HELPING YOU HIT MORE GREENS IN REGULATION.

Pitching with Back-spin or Pitching with Run-out give you totally different results.  Phil Mickelson has the flop shot (chip and check) down to an art.

Pitching with Back-spin or Pitching with Run-out give you totally different results. Phil Mickelson has the flop shot (hinge & hold) down to an art.

Pitching Wedge (with backspin or check): Know your ball flight distance for each club and for each height of your backswing. Choose balls with softer covers (which will not fly as far).  Swing to connect with the ball before the turf but don’t roll your right hand over your left after the impact.  Phil Michelson calls it the hinge and hold.  Hinge your wrists in the back swing and hold your club face open with your shaft pointing at the target in your limited follow-through so that your ball will bounce once and stop.  This tip came from www.Golf-Info-Guide.com by Thomas Golf (the best training tips I have found)

Chip and Run-Out: Use any iron up to your sand wedge to skim your ball off the ground but make sure that you rotate your chest as well as your arms to finish facing your target.  Choose a club to clear obstructions (rough, sand traps and fringe) and learn the amount of run-out for each club on the green.  There is an art to getting this right so test each of your clubs to learn the percentage of distance by air compared to distance running out on the green.

Putting:  You can use any theory in putting but it only makes sense to avoid side spin as you impact the ball.  Avoid swinging around your body in an arc and focus your eyes on the ball (not the putter head) until you impact with the ball.  Finish by swinging your club up the line at your target point.  Getting the right direction is a good starting point for any putt.

So perfect your swing with GOLFSTR+ and finish your swing with the right speed and follow-through for each club.  For great training videos CLICK TO CHECKOUT this collection of videos in GOLFSTR.COM.

Save Your Body and Your Mind

Here are some great golf tips that I picked up from Golf Magazines over the past week.  Why beat up your body and mind when common sense can help you survive and enjoy this great game?

What’s the best Drink on the Golf Course?
Dr Greg Wells, Sports Scientist for the US Junior National Golf Team advised that hours of practice and planning will all be wasted if your body is lacking basic fuel and nutrients.  Make sure that you fuel your brain with water.  60% of your body weight is made up of water but 90% of your brain is water.  It makes you tick so don’t forget to stay hydrated.

Play Within Yourself
Play within your capabilities.  Ignore the power of your playing partners.  Four hours of golf will take a lot out of your body.  Conserve your energy and play evenly throughout the entire round.  Take one extra club and swing smoothly.  So don’t swing harder, swing smarter.

 

Hey Jocks, push or pull a cart and save you back.  The extra walk is good for you.  [Stanford's Cameron Wilson is saving his back in the NCAA National Championship]

Carry or Push Cart?
Dr. Neil Wolkodoff, medical director of the Colorado Center for Health and Sports Science, conducted a study on the physical benefits of using a push cart vs. carrying your bag.   “People who push a cart have a lot fewer [health] issues, and a lot less potential for issues. If you can use a push cart and keep one more stress away from the back that’s a great thing.”

Avoid Sugar Spikes
Drop the candy bars or “health” bars.  Eat some nuts or fruit every few holes to reduce inflammation.  Nuts and seeds (unsalted, not roasted) are ideal to keep your body in good shape during a round of golf and all day long.

Control Your Attitude
Getting uptight will only hurt your game.  Your reaction during the first 2 seconds after each shot will just build up in your body.  Strangling your club will shorten your muscles, limit your swing speed and change your swing plane.  At the Jack Nicklaus Memorial Tournament, Matsuyama smacked his driver on the ground and broke the shaft before he learned that his drive actually landed in the fairway.  Dumb idea.  So take control of your mind and your game will improve.

Set Goals for Your Game:
-Only 20% of golfers ever achieve a handicap under 18.  Make it happen.
-Walking during an 18-hole round of golf burns 2,000 calories.  Riding only burns 1,300.
-The oldest golfer to match his age to his golf score was 103.  Try to do it at any age.
-Make a hole in one.  Odds are 1 in 67,000,000 to do it twice in the same round.  So just go for 1.

Where is YOUR Sweet Spot?

J. Storer, in Georgia has been a fan of GOLFSTR+  for almost 2 years.  We really appreciate his input for contribution to “Your Swing Support Center”.   He shared the following tip from Andrew Rice Golf, to explain why hitting the sweet spot on your driver gives you 20% more distance.  Andrew studied driver impact with his TrackMan to prove his findings.

 

So now you know why your surprisingly long drives just seem to happen out of the blue.  When you impact on the sweet spot, BINGO, your ball just takes off.

 

Your ideal Sweet Spot on your driver is just above and outside of the center of the clubface.

Your ideal Sweet Spot on your driver is just above and outside of the center of the clubface.

You can read Andrew’s research and practice techniques to improve your skill in finding the sweet spot on his website.  The short version is to spray your driver clubface with Dr. Scholl’s Odor X foot spray or (use a dry erase marker) and compare your distance with the point of impact for each of your test hits.

He analyzed Launch Angle, Spin Rate, Gear Effect and Clubhead Speed.  Slightly outboard and above the center point is your ideal impact point.  Newer drivers are more forgiving but you will still benefit from connecting on this sweet spot.

Knuckle Check for Distance?

Hank Haney did a video explaining that a golf swing with the fewest angles produces the best results.  He was highlighting the benefit of the flat wrist in the backswing to minimize curving the ball (both slicing and hooking). I just watched a video of Karen Nannen a PGA Pro by Golf Tips Magazine putting a new twist on this flat wrist swing.  She called it the “Knuckle Check”.

As you look down at the back of your leading hand at address, you should see 2 knuckles.  3/4 of the way back in your straight arm backswing you should also be able to see the same 2 knuckles.

 

>If you only see one knuckle, you are arching your wrist (like Dustin Johnson) and closing the club face.

>If you see more knuckles, you are bowing you wrist and opening the club face.

To ensure that you are swinging with a flat wrist, check for 2 knuckles at address and in the backswing.

Swinging with a flat wrist.  Check for 2 knuckles at address and in the backswing or feel your flat wrist with GOLFSTR+.

Your goal is to bring your club face back to square at impact.  Swinging from the inside to outside will still give you a nice draw without the hook.

Flat Wrist Backswing is only one of the 6 uses of GOLFSTR+.  It allows you to complete the “Knuckle Check” without looking at your hands in the backswing.  Fit curved end of the plastic plate to match the contour of the back of your hand when you grip the golf club. During your backswing you can feel your wrist cock sideways for lag as it slides across the plastic plate.  It just guides your wrist.

The Flat Wrist Backswing use of GOLFSTR+ is only meant to be a guide for this swing fix so that you can see the result of a few hits with the flat wrist backswing.  For this Swing Fix it is not intended for continuous use as it could irritate your wrist.  Now you don’t have to look back at your hands in the backswing to check for 2 knuckles.

This is only 1 of the 6 Swing Fixes which are listing in the GOLFSTR+ User Guide.  Check it out on our website at www.golfstr.com

Shocking DISCOVERY for LONGER DRIVES

Watch super slow motion videos of most professional golfer’s swing (including Tiger, Phil and Rory).  You will see whipping action of the club shaft recoiling before it impacts with the ball (losing speed and distance).  In the last 20 years someone discovered that ski jumpers fly a lot further with their skis spread out instead of parallel together.   This was a monumental break-through and I believe that I have discovered the same for your golf swing.

I have seen this for years but assumed that the club manufactures and professional instructors had a reason for allowing this recoil.  I discovered the truth when I saw Bubba Watson’s swing in Super Slow Motion.  Why is it that Bubba Watson’s driver does NOT have whipping action recoil before his club head impacts the ball?  [Check it out on our Swing Tip released 2 weeks ago.]  There must be a relationship with his ability to out-drive everyone in the Masters this year.  I suspect that his stiff shaft and timing of his lag release has a lot to do with his 125 MPH impact speed (as compared to 110 MPH for the average pro).

Check out the Super-Slo-Mo video of Lydia Ko (the youngest LPGA winner ever) illustrating this OPPORTUNITY for you and any other golfers who know the secret.   At 1:05 in this video check out the recoil of the club.  She is definitely losing distance and could benefit from a shorter backswing or a stiffer shaft.  The end of her whip (her club head) is recoiling too early.  Imagine the extra distance if her club head maximizes speed at the point of impact.

I’m an inquisitive golfer with an engineering background who designed GOLFSTR+ to improve my swing.  Almost 4,000 users are enjoying this product offering 6 swing fixes so I understand the physics of the golf swing.   I can’t find anyone writing about loss of distance from mid-swing recoil.  The whipping action recoil before impact may be a major limitation for the head speed of your club.

Solution for MORE DISTANCE:

The whipping action of your club is related to the speed of your arms and body release during the swing.  Club head speed is primarily increased by wrist lag and release at the bottom of your swingFlexibility of your shaft and the weight of your club head are other contributing factors.  I can’t predict how to control your combination of factors to maximize your club head speed at impact but I know that every golfer experiences amazing unexplained distance from time to time when all of your factors line upIt is up to you to discover your combination.

Experiment to find YOUR Perfect Factors:
1/  Your club shaft may be too stiff or too flexible but work with what you have before you start all over again with new equipment.
2/  Swinging too faster may be killing your distance as your club head recoils to wait for your hands to catch up.
3/  Try limiting your backswing to test the whipping action of your club head.  Think of your club as a whip and test for increased distance.

Now you know where to concentrate your effort.  Why not look for your perfect swing speed combination for your clubs.  Work out with GOLFSTR+ to improve your swing with straight arm and flat wrist.  Why not discover your perfect swing by CLICKING HERE and checking out GOLFSTR.
