Golf Tip – Plumb Bob

plumb bobHave you always wondered what “Plumb Bob” meant?  Or why you might use it? Plumb bobbing helps you determine the break of your putt.  Stand about six feet behind your ball and hold your putter up so it hangs straight down.  The shaft should be even with your eyes.  Move the shaft so it cuts the ball in half as you look at your putt.  Then look up at the hole without moving your head or the putter.  If there is a gap between your putter shaft and the hole, then that is the amount of break you should play in the putt.  Test the “plumb bob” method on the putting green to see if it helps you improve your putting.
