PostSubject: Putting - Lost the feel   Mon Jun 03, 2013 11:01 pm

Hi All,
My last three games was literally "killed" by poor putting. I counted 14 holes of 3 putts during my "worst" game.
The feel is lost, can't find the line, and can't get the pace...

Please help me gain back my losses... fellow GRs, please share.
1. how you grip your putter,
2. how you stand.
3. how you look down at the ball
4. how you swing
5. how you control the pace

Thank you!

U mentioned it happened last 3 games. So before that was ok. If u did not change anything then probably due to temporary lost of feel. Putting has on and off days. Try to identify which area u need to work on. Is it lag putt or less than 3 feet putt.

Hello,

Bro swine, my take on lost of feel is to putt with a steady head.

Listening for the ball to drop and not looking at where the ball is going. This will improve putter contact so distance the ball goes is predictable. Then, feel will return.

Try a different putter? Sometimes that does the trick.

Dun bother about your stroke. It's there.

Dun bother about your grip. It's there

Dun bother about distance. Ur mind will adjust to your eyes visualizing it

Take a good look at where e ball will enter e hole

Visualize

Once ready. Pull e trigger

I got a heavy putter recently. Used it for a few social rounds. It really improved my stroke and feel when i went back to a normal putter .

seriously

i have no routine.. i just check front and back

and if the flight in front is slow, i will walk one round the green and see the slope

then a few practice putts and wham i pull e trigger

but i discover when my hands r relaxed and i dun think too much, i putt better

sometimes even dun aim .. rely on instinct, also more zun..

this is golf... its a b%&#$@

Hi swine, If you have no clue where to start to fix your problems, here are some way to get start.
By fixing your question no.1, IMO it will eventually take care the rest of your questions. With a wrong grip size and length / lie angle you'll can never make a good grip.

Some clues and reasons why you need visit your fitter:

Hope helps you some way Cheers Jump
