I cherished studying a current article about Brooks Koepka’s current and previous success on the US Open Tournaments. If you’re hitting nice photographs the place you deal with the suitable swing, your confidence and success will simply develop. It’s straightforward for the professionals to get this sense however leisure gamers simply sit up for hitting 2 or 3 good swings on each gap. After all the mishits creep in however you’ll solely shoot nice rounds should you can overlook about your final mishit and focus in your subsequent nice shot.
“An important shot in golf is your subsequent one.” Ben Hogan
That article highlighted 3 areas the place Brooks picks up stokes on the sphere:
1/ Analyze every shot to perceive the place your greatest miss can be. (A protracted putt is significantly better than making an attempt to hit out of a pond.)
2/ Brooks performs to keep away from double bogies. (It’s OK to hit a sand lure however just remember to subsequent shot stays on the inexperienced.)
3/ He putts with confidence so his mid-length and brief putts are agency and into the again of the cup. (Weak putts curl as they sluggish close to the outlet. Follow with sufficient velocity to go the outlet by 2 toes and get rid of quite a lot of the break on the gap to sink extra putts.)
An important space of our video games the place we will simply drop extra strokes is PUTTING. Most of us common 2 putts/gap or 36 putts/spherical. Sadly the remainder of your recreation must be good to shoot a 72. Fats probability!
That’s precisely why I write so many blogs about placing. In the event you don’t have a assured placing grip and stroke you’ll by no means decrease your scores. This week I acquired an attention-grabbing response from one among our followers from the West Coast of Australian (NSW), a couple of new placing grip that helped him win his membership championship. Phil Parker has by no means putted higher now that he’s utilizing his “Y Grip” Placing Stroke.
[Will Curry: “I tried the “Y Grip” and I was impressed with my very solid grip and swing up my target line with my 34” putter and just wanted to share it with all of our followers.”]
Phil makes use of a 40” Odyssey V line Armlock Mallet Head Putter and he additionally makes use of the identical grip with a fairway Steel when placing out of deep grass to keep away from getting caught within the grass. His remark: “I’ve by no means putted higher”.
Simply to summarize: Be taught to putt with a agency and assured swing to go the outlet by 2 toes. The “Y Grip” can be a strong grip and it undoubtedly prevents any wrist break in your placing stroke. After all GOLFSTR+ can also be an amazing coaching support with 1 of its 6 swing fixes being that it helps you follow a flat wrist putt and see your nice outcomes.
