Best Golf Lessons: Eliminate Three Putts By Learning To Lag

best golf lessonsOne of the best golf lessons is to eliminate three putts in your play. The best golf  lessons to reduce the number of putts in a round of golf is to learn to lag your longer putts to the hole so you are left with no more than a “give-me.”

Yes, you should be able to hole any putt within four feet of the cup if you want to play scratch golf. However, it typically is not the short putts that ruin a round of golf. It usually are those extremely long putts that make it more difficult to judge the pace of the ball in order to stroke it near the cup.

When it comes to such longer putts, you need some golf swing tips to learn how to lag them close to the hole. Lagging usually means to putt the ball just short of the hole but I consider this golf method of putting to also include those putts that roll just slightly past the hole.

Obviously, the objective is to putt the ball near enough to the that the next putt is a slam dunk, so to speak.

Lag putting can reduce your golf score by several strokes per round.

Here is a portion of a recent article that discusses the importance of lag putting to reduce your golf scores.

“Hitting your first putt closer to the hole is crucial in minimizing the score each and every round. In a good round, there should be no 3 putts, as we know. To better your lag putting, try going to the practice green and doing nothing but hitting very long putts for practice one day. This will hone your long putts for next round.” Read more…http://www.putting-tip.com/articles/5-fast-ways-to-drop-5-golf-strokes/.

I use the Locked-In Putting™ System to lag putts to the hole.

This is a unique way to stroke longer putts. It requires several steps but once you learn how to putt using the system, you easily can reduce your score by several strokes per round of golf.

Here are some of the golf putting tips to perform this technique.

First you must have your putter handled gripped squarely in the lifelines of both hands. The lifeline is the channel that runs between the palm and thumb of each hand.

As long as the lifeline is positioned squarely to the lifeline of the hand it meets this requirement even when resting on one of your fingers. Indeed, my right-hand lifeline is not connected directly to my putter handle but is placed on my middle finger at the completion of my putting grip. It nonetheless is aligned squarely to my putter handle.

Then it is a matter of determining the pace and break of the putt and centering my putter head squarely behind my ball on my aim line, the line on which I want the ball initially to roll in consideration of the break.

Once my putter head is centered squarely behind my ball on my airm line, I connect my right elbow to my right rib cage with our changing the sqare alignment of my putter head behind my ball.

Then I keep my right elbow connected to my right rib cage, maintain my head position and spine angle and, then move my hands backward until I can  see the pre-determined  reference point on my left wrist, such as the leading or trailing edge of my wrist watch or sweat band, intersect the back of the ball to roll the ball very near the hole.

It indeed takes some dedicated practice to determine the specific reference point on your left wrist, when it intersects the back of the ball to roll the ball a specific distance.

However, once you learn these golf putting instructions, you will improve your golf game enormously.

You will then know the significance of why I contend these to be some of the best golf lessons ever known.
