I thought I was ok until I had a lesson with my colleague Charlie Ledger. He has just joined us from our academy in the UK and this guy is a putting guru. He has worked with some pros on the European Tour and after seeing what he did with my stroke, I was impressed. Every time I play with him, he just holes them from everywhere. When I have a student that wants a putting lesson, I now get him to take the lesson and I just watch in awe at the results he can get. He has definitely done his homework and I highly recommend him. PM me if you want his details

I've watched Phil Mickelson: Secrets of the Short Game and the way he set up to the ball is different from what was usually taught. For him the eye should not be directly over the ball but behind the ball.... not sure if its more effective...

Any pros can comment on this??

I honestly dont think there is just one way to putt. Whats on the doctrine may well be just a guide for some. If you are putting your putts in regularly, even with whats not in the doctrine of putts, whos to say you are wrong??

i feel more often then not, putting comes with experience... the more you play, the more courses, condition, etc you play will gives you experience too...


of course there will be some who even take into considerations of sunset, water, etc into consideration on the break etc...

generally, i think what the coach can do is to help to derive a stroke tht the individual will feel comfortable, consistently and able to produce under pressure. of course the students will also have to be hardworking and serious to learn all minor details of putting to be good.

and if the coach can teaches on green reading(this is something i felt very important), what to do on putting from all kinds of slope etc.... this will aid the students.

Well, putting is the most important aspect of the game.....even for the pro's... it is what seperate from a good round to a great round.... sometimes from a bad rd to be gd one...

You would like to check with DGman as I do not know how to explain. For me, as long eye overball as the setup, the resst is feel already.

In response to eye position, Front view, eyes behind ball, . See examples below



From behind view, eyes slightly on the inside as seen by Brad Faxon and Aaron Baddeley, 2 of the best putters on the PGA Tour

The path of the putter and the putter face is very important for good putting. Contrary to popular belief, I believe it does not move back and forth in a straight line with the face pointing at the target.


Putter moves on a slight arc with face staying square to the arc, not target


Returns back to impact

Follow thru continues on arc, face square to arc
