Golf Putting Tips to Take 3-4 Strokes Off Your Score

Golf Putting Tips

Many golfers throughout the world do not concentrate on improving their putting by looking for golf putting tips because they think it is such a minor portion of the game of golf. I believe that they are sadly mistaken. Just think of the par threes. The putter on the par threes is usually more than fifty percent of the strokes made. If someone shoots an 82 then usually the amount of putts are 32 or 33, which is more than 40% of the strokes for the round of golf. It only makes sense that this may be one of the easiest ways to shave 3 or 4 strokes off of your golf score just by practicing a few tips.

Many golfers think that just by changing putters or trying harder will improve their putting and sometimes it does. Several putting tips that have helped me putt better have been:

1-Prepare on the practice green to get extremely confident by sinking at least 2 or 3 consecutive 6-7 foot putts.

2-Practice getting the right distance especially for long putts by visualizing the strength needed to roll the putt by hand and duplicating that strength into the putter head.

3-On longer putts it might be better to think of having to putt to a bucket and end up close to the hole.

4-Make sure you are very comfortable with your current putter.

5-One of the most important parts of the putting stroke is the few inches before and after hitting the ball.

There are many other tips in magazines and on line golf tips that are available for improving your putting. Keep trying them until you find some that work consistently for you and go for it. This could be the easiest way to shave a few strokes off your score.
