WITH the world’s best golfers about to take on the punishing Oakmont Country Club greens for the 2016 US Open it’s a good time to talk about putting – and getting rid of the dreaded three and even four putts.
One thing we really relate to in this putting tip video from Vaughan Somers at the Melbourne Golf Academy is to always putt by rocking the shoulders rather than using the hands.
When our putting starts to go badly awry it is invariable due to slipping back to an old habit of initiating the putting stroke with the hands. We suddenly remember the need to be aware of rocking the shoulders and leaving the arms and hand basically limp.
In this video, produced by Golf University as part of their regular “Tip from the Pro” series, Somers says most people three putt due to hitting it short or long, rather than left or right.
