The short putt is one of the most dreaded shots in golf. Whether it is a three-footer or a five-footer, we have all missed them to shoot a good score or at an important point in our round.
I have been there on many occasions when you think back to a missed putt during a round and you wonder what could have been.
It is not only your score that is on your mind, but also the humiliation of missing a short putt in front of your playing partners or opponents.
Luckily for us, Manolo Vega has got a quick and simple solution for you. With this tip, you will remain calm and stable under pressure with putts you should be holing from short distances.
This tip is especially helpful for players who tend to hook or pull short putts to the left of the hole. Vega demonstrates what you have to do in the clip above.
Once you have completed your practice routine and decided on your line to the hole, you should move your left foot two inches up a little and away from your right foot.
According to the entertaining and passionate coach, this will close your body and increase stability in your legs and core. This will help you hit your short putt straight.
Before every short putt you have, make sure you remember to use this simple but effective technique. Just edge your left foot up two inches.
As Vega says, this is particularly helpful for players who tend to pull their putts to the left of the hole. Vega is a master of golf tuition and is very passionate about improving your game.
