SINKING those three and four foot putts can make all the difference to your golf game – just ask Dustin Johnson and his experience at the last two US Opens.

In the video below, Head Pro Gary Colquhoun at the Mandurah Country Club in Western Australia goes over some important short putting tips.

Colquhoun says it’s essential to:

Stabilise the lower body on the smaller putts – no hip or knee movement

To keep the head absolutely still during the stroke


To keep tight control over the putter during the hit

The video is from Golf University’s weekly “Tip from the Pro”. Get more info from clicking the graphic at below.
