Default Putt Critic

I havn't seen many putting critics, so I thought I might as well get some tips from the Ace Members.

BTW, my "target" is roughly 12 inches wide, and roughly the same height as a basket.

Putts were made from 15 feet to 30 feet.

Do you hit a lot of putts? lol I mean putting is SOOOO personal that you can take all the advice that you want but all in all you just need to find what works for you and practice. You can try to putt like Feldberg Rico or Brinster. It doesn't matter as long as they go in.

It really depends on how slowly I take for my "wind up" and how i focus. A large majority of my putts that I make are roughly 18 feet, and overall, I would give myself a 50% rating in circle. Missed putts tend to be rushed and unfocused.

I think you are answering your own questions. Don't rush, focus and follow through. The only other thing I would say is only practice from inside the circle until you are canning the vast majority of your putts. Unless you are playing open or are playing in a large advanced state (Texas, NC, Michigan, Cali etc) you hit all your putts inside the circle and you will be beating ALOT of players.

I've tried to imitate pros putting styles a few times but, before I know it, I'm back to putting how I always putt.

There are a few things to keep in mind. Don't snap your wrist. Even when spin putting, your wrist should do more of a popping action which will propel the disc straight at the target, with practice. Don't practice missing. If you aren't feeling it, and are missing a ton of putts, just stop and take a break and try again later when your mind is clear of mental blocks. Follow through the same way every time with your hand extended and open towards the target. Almost every one of my missed putts is do to a poor follow through. The basket is a huge target when you think about it. Pretend you are playing catch with someone when you are putting. And all of a sudden, that 33ft super long putt, doesn't look that hard after all. Helps me anyway. I aim to hit chains, I don't aim at a particular chain link, although that does help a lot of others, and it may help you.

It can take a while to find your own style of putting. Just keep practicing and experimenting.

Good point. I've always practiced to get my mind clear, and turning that around would certainly help form a competitive standpoint. Yes, my bad follow through has been an issue. I find my self increasing my range when I allow my shoulders to turn more.

Thanks for the reply.
