Basic Putting Stance Tips
We all have that golf buddy who can stripe the ball 300-plus yards down the center, but turns into Happy Gilmore at the miniature golf course as soon as the flat stick comes out of the bag. Maybe, just maybe, you’re that golf buddy. Whether it is you or a friend, putting can make or break any round—but it doesn’t have to be that way! It’s time to find your happy place.
The best way to cure anything in sports is to start with the basics, so watch Nick Clearwater of GOLFTEC (one of the Top Young Teachers in America) guide you to the perfect putting stance. Remember these basics and be sure to watch the video below!
- Play the ball just slightly forward of the middle of your stance
- This will promote a slight upward motion when striking the ball
- Make sure your stance is toward the hole
- Try using alignment rods or extra clubs to ensure the perfect setup
