“There are several proven methods for eliminating 3 putts. The first one I want to talk about is developing feel and distance control from much practice and trial and error. Most people who often three putt are usually lacking in this area and need to especially practice on the practice putting green before their round for about an hour. The second way to quickly avoid three putts is to take every putt seriously, especially short ones. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people miss short putts by taking them for granted and rushing the putt. Three foot putts are called knee knockers for a reason! You should always follow a system when you address a golf ball and be consistent, as the system I’ve devised for my students (which applied to any time you hit a golf ball) is 1) Pick your spot 2) See the shot 3) Pre shot routine. This is a great system and when executed properly helps you really dial in your game. Come see me for a lesson (800-506-9849) to learn more about how my system works.”
“There are a few different ways to work the ball. Some golfers are conventional in their approach and others are not so conventional. The conventional ways (that I endorse) to hit a draw include strengthening your grip and closing the club face. But, I’ve found from my personal experience (which may be more unconventional) that I usually can draw the ball when I really think about covering the ball by swinging around the ball to the inside (in the forward swing) with a low finish.“
“(It’s The Feel Shot.)
I get asked all of the time. How do you hit those 50, 60, or 70 yard pitch shots? Well, my answer to those students is that they’re feel shots. But, don’t get confused on that because feel can be taught, especially with those types of feel shots. It’s about doing your math. For example if you have a 75 yard shot. Grab your 100 yard club and do your fractions and percentages. Put 75 (your distance) in the numerator and 100 (your full swing distance) in the denominator to create the fraction. Then, find the common denominator and you will narrow that down to 3/4 or 75%. That’s how much of a backswing you should take to hit that shot and likewise accordingly with those types of in between yardages and feel shots.”
