#92 Web TV: Improve Putting Stability

Improve putting stability. What does that mean? View video and blog post below.

What I see when golfers are out either practicing or playing in a game is the non stable body parts when they putt.

I’ll give you an example of what I see…

People get set and then they sway to hit their putt.  What actually happens is their body moves so much… so does the club face… therefore the ball doesn’t go straight, it goes a bit skew whiff and doesn’t go in the hole.  They think it’s their actual putter or the actual stroke, going back and through.

They may not realize that the stroke is OK but it’s what the lower half of their body is actually doing.

Here you are going to learn how to improve your putting stability.

Even if you are really good at putting and you are very stable in your putt, I want you to try this out because you will understand what you need to do to stay nice and stable.

Here below is how you can improve putting through being more stable.

This is what we are going to do.  If you are a right handed putter, I want you to put your left foot forward.  Now what I want you to do is to keep the ball in line with your left foot.  If you are a left handed putter  I what you to put the ball in line with your right foot because you are obviously going to be putting that way.

Because I am a right handed putter I’m going to do the right handed putt.  I’m going to put my left foot forward and my back foot I going to place behind my left heel and I’m going to go up onto the ball of my right foot.

Stand over, set my foot back, my right foot is not directly behind my left, it’s just in line with my hip making sure that I am balanced.

Now, I want you to stand over the ball like you normally would in a putt and I want you to keep your left leg really stable.  Now, we are going to go back and through and hold. Notice there is no wobbliness going on.

Now, I’ll do it again, get set, back, through and hold. Again, you are not seeing any swaying.

So, I want you to do ten putts, just with your left leg forward for those right handed putters.  If you are a leftie do it from your right leg and then what I want you to do is to alternate.  I want you to do one putt with your left foot forward and then I want you to do a putt with your feet apart.

I want you to see if you can repeat that nice stable movement.  That means from the waist down there is no jigging and jiving around the place.  Very stable, just swinging back and through.

This is a great drill to improve putting stability.

So, once you have worked on that or you really like my video, I want you to leave a comment and say ” Hey Tiff, that was awesome, I’m going to try it or that I have tried it and it’s great, it’s made a big difference.”

I want you to tell me what you like best about today’s tip.

    Oh Tiffany I love your tips and the fun way you teach. This tip is exactly what I need right now in spite of a lot of other aspects of my game coming together I am still 3 putting and just missing the hole on the second putt. Your way of teaching is the best, most entertaining and you really know what is going on with the golf swing (putt). Have a great Christmas/New Year with family and friends. xxooirene

      Hi Irene

      Thank you Irene so much for the great feedback. It makes me so happy you enjoy my teaching and tips and of course my sense of humour. Golf should be fun. Your game is so much further ahead now 12 months on… and will continue to get even better.

      Merry Christmas to you and Gary.

      See you in the New year

      Tiff x x 🙂 😉

    Yes Tiff. Will try this. I do pretty well with putting using a lighter weight junior putter, same as Annie’s but the stable left leg drill should help. Our courses are all closed up here but will practice drill at home. I like it. Take care. -David

      Hi Dave

      Great to hear and let me know how you go.

      Practice at home is great and don’t let the winter weather hold you back. You can always find a way.

      Merry Christmas

    Have been watching your videos for a long time and the last ones on chipping and putting have been very helpful getting me back on track.Have a great Christmas and keep going with the tips.
    An occasionally repeat for blokes like me with bad memories would be good.
