The winter months can be a productive time to work on your game and get rid of your slice/hook etc. Before you start making changes it is important to remember that your brain doesn’t learn a new movement by hitting golf balls at full speed.
The key is time and repetition, make sure you are focused when you practice the repetitions so that they are done correctly, only then you will make progress. The biggest mistake many golfers do is practicing thousands and thousands of repetitions of a false movement hoping it will get better sometime in the future.
The best way of making sure you lower your score next season is to work on your putting? Here are some exercises that will make you a better putter.
- Invest in a Putting Aligment Mirror, a poor alignment is the major cause of missed putts. This practice tool will make sure your alignment is correct. Setup with your eyes directly over the ball and with your shoulders, hips and feet lined correctly. Set up with your eyes directly over the ball and with your shoulders, hips and feet lined correctly. It is important to place your eyes directly over the ball. This makes it easier to see the path that you need to swing the putter down in order to make a perfect putt.
- Keep your head still while practicing short putts. Lifting the head as the balls is struck, “peeking” is a common problem. The result is a poorly struck putt and the ball misses the hole. Practice keeping your head still until you hear the ball drop.
- There is no need to practice speed on an indoor math, but you can improve your aim. When we setup to make a putt we first align the putter head towards the hole and then our feet, hips, shoulders and eyes. A tip is to use the text on the ball to align the ball towards the target you like the ball to start on. Ask a friend or your golf teacher to double check your aim from time to time.
