Putting can be very frustrating. You think you are aiming to the target, but somehow the ball either goes right or left of the hole. So how do you putt straight, and what causes those balls to go right or left?
Time: 15 minutes
Materials 1 x Putter
3 x Golf Balls
1 x OLD CD
Method Place CD on the ground.
Place Ball in the hole of the CD.
Address the ball as if you are going to putt. Can you see your eyes?
Having your eyes over the ball is important as it not only allows you to hit the ball to the target but it always aids in helping you judge the distance from the hole to the ball. By having your eyes over the ball increases your chance of hitting a straight putt.
If you see your eyes inside line of the ball (that is closer to your body) you either have your weight on your heels or the ball is too far from you body. You will have a tendency to move your head and will result in pushing the ball to the right hand side of the hole.
If your eyes are on the outside line of the ball, the ball will be closer to your body or you will have your weight on your toes. You will have a tendency to pull the ball to the left hand side of the hole.
Set up to the ball and try to see your eyes fall over the ball. Practice putting the ball a few times with your eyes over the ball.
