Learning how to aim a putter


Recommended Posts

If you can’t see the line then forget it. That matters more than everything else combined. Opening up my putting stance was the best thing I’ve ever done for my scores. The change was immediate. Is my stroke perfect? No. But every putt I hit has a chance now because I can actually see it. Do whatever you need to do.

Thank you. I can also aim pretty well from an open stance. But I’m talking way open. My feet are probably between 40 and 50 degrees open when I do it.

I use at least 5 so people underestimate me. 

Quick someone tell Tiger he’s a hack

Three things that helped me go from aiming well right to just about dead-on.   1.  Change the technique of how you aim the ball in the sense if you try to aim going from the ball to the targ

Mike Malaska has done a good vide on this. It has helped me a bit.
 

But I have started using an Eyeline mirror and the line on the ball. I feel like I am aiming left, but it is a readjustment.

 

I found that if my stance gets too wide my eyes get too far behind the ball.

Have you looked at side saddle putting at all? It sounds like you want to be face on with your putts... it might be worth trying an extreme solution...

This is what started me down this road. I tried it and just can’t find a position where my aim doesn’t look left.

Yeah it’s weird. I am hoping using the line on the ball will help once our courses open up again.

Was the same for me. That video is what radicalized me, since I simply couldn’t find a position where I naturally saw the line. Trying to “train” that is insane. Opened up and voila.

I haven’t but am considering it. 

I’d at least find a place to roll one. It’s definitely different. We all aim differently, so finding something that works for you is all that matters...

 

as I said, I really like my seemore... it helps me line up and focus on tempo, as when I hide the red dot, I know I’m lined up correctly... but I probably aim much differently than you do!

 

(if you are near Nashville, the $150 to get fit with Cody is awesome... he covers all this stuff)

A) Ensure that you're consistent with your set up. (same head position, distance from ball etc) changing those variables can play havoc with how you perceive aim.

 

B) A really useful tool I have found is a little laser that attaches to your putter, gives you a visual on where your putter is pointing. I got mine off ebay, have also seen them on social media from short game gains too.
