The Daily Putting Lesson Continued....

Lesson 16 Knowledge is power. Understanding the mechanics of your stroke is how you eliminate the mechanical thoughts during the stroke.

Lesson 17-Use your source of motion as the trigger to start your stroke. It takes the stroke out of your hands and enhances consistency.

Lesson 18-Build your putting routine based on the elements of your mechanics. Use your putter as the yardstick to build a consistent set up.

Lesson 19-You will have more success if you fit the putter to your posture and mechanics. Harder to change your mechanics to match a putter.

Lesson 20-Find the right putter! Fit shaft placement to the size of the arc, offset to release, weight to tempo.

Lesson 21-Easy to show how players react to different styles of putters. Better to find the correct one than mask the feel with "technology"

Lesson 22-Find the putter weight you can control for putts of all lengths. Heavy=slower Lighter=faster. What do you need?

Lesson 23-Match weight to timing and tempo. Looking for even paced stroke and a consistent amount of time. Too slow just as bad as too fast.

Lesson 24-Putter MOI is a function of more than how the weight is distributed in the putter head. Grip weight, shaft weight, all play a role.

Lesson 25-As with all things in putting, too much is as bad as not enough. High MOI putters do not rotate easily. Match MOI to your stroke.
