Golf Tip – Stripe It

November 7, 2015 Posted by Matt

stripeA great way to see if you are rolling your putts correctly is to place a stripe around the equator of the ball.  Use a plastic line guide available in most golf shops to make a circle around your ball in black marker.  Strike your putt and watch to see how the ball rolls.  If the line appears to be solid as it rolls, you are making square contact.  If, however, the line wobbles as it rolls, you may be striking the putt with an open or closed face, causing sidespin.  Make corrections until you can see the solid stripe as you roll your putts to know that you are hitting them correctly.
