Putting Distance

August 22, 2015 Posted by Matt

putting distancesSet your putting distance by the length of your stroke.  To be able to hit your putts at different distances, it is easier to make a longer back and through swing rather than trying to simply hit the ball harder or easier.  You can use your back foot to measure how far back you should swing your putter as a means of creating a simple way to judge your distance.  If you take a normal stroke that goes back to your back toe and produces a thirty-foot putt, then you have a point of reference for all of your long putts.  Go beyond your toe for longer putts and short of your toe for shorter distances.
