Evolve Your Putting Game by Mastering the Simple Things

Evolve Your Putting Game by Mastering the Simple Things

There are two sorts of golfers out there: those that smile when they grab their putter and those that grimace. Whether you are proud of your putting game or not, there is always more to learn! You learn by practicing, but practicing is only effective if you do it right. Today we're going to guide you through some simple, smart, and efficient techniques to sharpen the edge of your putting game.


Start With Your Mindset

In order to become more effective on the green, you will need to acknowledge just how cerebral golf can be. In short, your great putting game is hidden away in your mind, ready to be unlocked. You may already have your own style of putting, but you must forget about it in order to start from scratch.

The key to progress is shaking your bad habits. Getting out of your bad putting habits can be tough and in order to do so you must overcomeproactive Inhibition. Proactive Inhibition is essentially the lock in your mind that prevents you from changing something about yourself. The key? Clear and focused repetition. Practice your new putting techniques every time you have a chance to steal the green for a little while. Not only that, but also focus on your new technique, and cognitively ignore your old habits for every single put moving forward.

Master the Motor Skills

Much like swinging a baseball bat or riding a bike, so much of putting is just muscle memory. Putting is a motor skill that can be ingrained into your body, motions, and outcome. When you let your muscle memory take over, you end up resorting to bad habits. That is why you see great golfers occasionally fall apart - they come out of the moment and fall back to old, no longer useful habits.

Acknowledging that putting is mostly muscle memory should be a great relief! You can always ingrain new memories into your body and this time you can do them right. When you are trying to rehabilitate your putting game, as many of us sadly are, you want to start from scratch -- the basics. Look at everything from your grip to your stance and all that is going on in between.

Repetition, Repetition, Repetition...

Scientists believe that you must repeat a process 28 days in a row for it to become your body's “default” motion. While we love the idea of hitting the golf course every day for a month, it just isn't realistic for most of us. Instead, you can keep a club around the office and practice your stance and your swinging motion in your free time. Take stock of what you are doing, and as you do it focus on ingraining all of these positive habits and you'll find that your game is back on track before you know it.

All of the fundamentals can be changed with practice and using the right tools can speed up that learning curve dramatically. Consider using The Perfect Putter which has been adopted by over 80 PGA Tour professionals to fix their bad habits and ultimately better their game.
