Putting Change


You are suddenly having difficulty making flush contact or accuracy problems while putting.


It could be from a change in your posture, extra pressure, or an onset of the yips. Double check your posture and putting routine. Are you forgetting to read and visualize your line or some other setup routine that you usually do?


After you have reviewed your putting fundamentals and you are still having difficulty, try changing your grip. A simple change in your grip can make a huge improvement if it is the yips and it could help you regain your focus if you are simply becoming careless. You can try putting by holding the club with just one hand or experiment with a new grip. Good luck!
