Length of Your Putting Stroke

Nothing is more important in your game than a consistent putting stroke. You can be the best player from tee to green but without a good stroke on the greens, you still won’t be able to put up the score you want. It is important that you pay attention to both the speed of your stroke and the length of your stroke back and through. Some golfers like a short, quick putting stroke while others prefer a longer, smoother stroke, as I do. We want the putter head to travel the same distance on the through stroke as it does on the way back. Using a metronome (in an app on your phone) can help you practice this skill. The speed of the putter head should remain constant or slightly increase on the way through. Master this and your game will be far more consistent from any length of the putting green.
