how important is it to your swing accuracy?I just realized while I was on my practice green here in my house that my usual putting routine before the actual putt is crucial to me striking the ball in the sweet spot and having a straight roll.
I step back from the ball, feet touching together....I bend down a bit w/ a 35" putter at 5'11", bent at the elbows a bit, and take 2 practice strokes to lock my left wrist(right handed swing). I put the club head up to the ball at address, then right foot forward and to the right and left foot directly forward so that the ball is forward in my stance by an inch or so from center...and then I roll the ball. Works everytime, in the hole from 5-10 feet guaranteed. Now I'm doing this without break, etc. Just basic putting practice here.
Do you all rely on that type of "pre roll routine" to help with accuracy? Is it in my mind? I know it helps to get my left wrist completely locked down tight so I don't yip the ball at address.
