Fed up of taking three putts on the green time and time again? If so, we recommend you watch PGA pro Danny Maude's best tips on the greens.
Danny takes a closer look at your technique and strike, building a great rhythm that matches your stroke, and then gives you a simple practice putting green exercise that involves closing your eyes during your stroke...
1) Technique and strike is key. You want stability and stillness on a long putt. I want you to get used to standing nice and still and nice and square. Get yourself fixed in position, take the putter back and through.
2) Rhythm is also key. If you're uncertain of distance control, there is a good chance you lack good rhythm. You need to practice a rhythm that works with your stroke to prevent a sudden jerk or slow down to the stroke. It needs to be a lovely flow.
3) Practice your putting before you head out onto the course. The practice putting green will give you a good idea of the speed of the greens out on the course. If you don't have the pace before you go out there, it becomes so difficult to get used to the pace on the actual course. A very simple drill to help with your pace is to close your eyes on the practice putting green. Make some strokes and get lined up as normal, then close your eyes, and hit the putt and guess where the ball has gone. This will give you great feel for the greens. Keep doing this drill for as long as it takes to get it right. It's such an important ingredient to help you with your distance control on longer putts.
