JohnHayesGolf.com Newsletter Golf Tip – June 2017
For your golf game: In putting your job is this: ROLL THE BALL ON THE LINE YOU SELECT AS FAR AS THE HOLE. In order to get a feel for rolling the ball the correct distance you will need to practice on the green. But you can practice rolling the ball ON THE LINE YOU SELECT almost anywhere. You can putt on a carpet indoors and put two barriers on either side of your line, I like to lay down two large books, and then start rolling putts until you consistently hit your line passing between the two books. On the putting green you can put two tees in the green to create a gate, a little wider than the golf ball, which you have to roll the ball through to hit your line. Create this gate a couple of feet ahead of your ball on the line you have selected.
Top short game instructor, Jerry Tucker, will take a small peel-off sticker and affix it to the green on the line of the putt so the golfer can see that spot and then roll the ball over that spot. He also has a wire wicket that you can put on your line to practice. (www.jerrytuckergolf.com)
All of these things are helpful and will make a difference in your golf but YOU have to get out and do it. I say this last line mostly to motivate myself to get out and practice! I hope that it will motivate you also.
