No hole? No problem!

See more on the Putting Scope - $39.95 

When short putts start on the intended line they usually go in.

This drill focuses on the 3 most important influences:

  • Putter face alignment at impact
  • Alignment
  • Stroke Path

And you don’t even need a hole :)

Use the Putting Laser + and the Putting Scope

Set up 12” - 18” behind the Scope leg.
Swing the putter so the laser line goes through the center of the leg.
Pay attention to the direction the line is pointing.

  • If it points to the right of the hole, you’re “holding off” the putter.

Let it release to the inside of the line after impact.

  • If it points to the left, you’re rotating the face.

Keep your hands “silent”.  Your shoulder rotation will let the putter swing properly.  No need to let your hands manipulate the putter.

(If you’re a lefty … well, you know what I mean)

Put a ball into the drill.  I’m sure you will hit it through the Scope leg, but it might show you a change in your stroke.  Remember … laser through the leg.

This is a great drill for the office or home.  Whenever you walk by your putter and Scope take 10 seconds to make a few strokes.  They will add up to a great new stroke habit.

2011 … year of dominating short putts!
