Golf Tip – Long Putts

June 17, 2016 Posted by Matt

puttsNot sure what to do on long putts if you are just of the green?  If you have a forty or fifty-foot putt to the hole, consider chipping instead of putting.  You probably don’t practice fifty-foot putts very often.  In most cases with armature golfers, you’ll end up putting the ball and it’s going to come up way short or go way past the hole. The next thing you know you’ve just three putted from just off the green.  Try using a seven or six iron to chip instead.  You want the ball to land on the green as quickly as possible and role to the hole.  You have a much better chance of getting closer to the pin on those long putts if you chip. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
