Putting
Around the Academy:

Step 1

Very few top golfers break their wrists when they putt.

Instead they let their arms hang loosely and hold the putter lightly so both hang like a pendulum from the shoulders.

Ben Crenshaw is one of the best putters in the world.

He holds the putter so lightly he sometimes drops it - but this is how he achieves the 'touch' behind a smooth rhythm.

Set up with the ball near your front foot, the club face square to the target line and your eyes over the ball.

It is important to keep your hands level or ahead of the ball through the stroke.
