GOLF PUTTING TIPS: USE YOUR LEFT SWEATER SLEEVE TO GAUGE THE DISTANCE OF YOUR PUTT

golf putting tipsBelieve it or not, one of the best golf putting tips is to use the end of your left sweater sleeve (during the cooler months of the year) to determine how far you should take your putter head back in order to stroke your putt a specific distance with a smooth forward stroke.

This is one of the best golf putting instructions because you can determine how far your ball should roll when you stop the back stoke of your putt at the point the end of your left sweater sleeve intersects your ball, assuming you forward stroke your putt in the same smooth manner each time.

Whether it is a short, medium or long putt,

                                this golf method of putting can be very effective

First, you should wear a watch on your left wrist, if right handed. Then measure the distance your ball will roll on a flat surface after stopping your back stroke at the point the outer edge of your watch intersects your ball from your line of vision, followed by a smooth forward stroke.  (The same golf method works for the left-handed player by measuring such distance using  a right-wrist watch.)

Then you should determine how far your putt will roll when you stop your back stroke at the point the middle portion of your wrist watch intersects your ball from your line of vision during your back swing, followed by a smooth forward stroke.

Next, use the same procedure to determine the distance your ball will roll when stopping your back stroke at the point the inner edge of your wrist watch intersects your ball from your line of vision, followed by the same smooth forward stroke.

 Most golfers wear some type of sweater during the cooler months when playing golf.

Thus, during the cooler months you can move the end of your sweater sleeve incrementally above the inner edge of your watch to measure the distance of your putt when you stop your back stroke at the point the end of your sweater sleeve intersects your ball from your line of vision, followed by the same smooth forward stroke.

My preferred way of using the end of my sweater sleeve for such measuring purposes is to raise the end of my sweater sleeve by the width of my fingers between the inner edge of my wrist watch and the end of my sweater sleeve.

You can determine how far your putt will roll on a flat surface, assuming the same type of grass and stimpted the same degree, by having a one finger separation between the inner edge of your wrist watch and the end of your sweater sleeve, using the same procedure as described above.

Then use the same procedure when there is a two fingers separation between the end of your sweater sleeve and the inner edge of your watch and, continuing  with the same routine with additional finger widths and, even with “fists and fingers” width separation between the inner edge of your wrist watch and the end of your sweater sleeve.

Your distances will vary when faced with up hill, down hill or side hil putts as well as with different putting surfaces and stimpted greens, all for whuch you must adjust the length of your back stroke.

However,  when you adjust for such conditions effectively, this may be  one of the best golf putting tips ever discovered. If performed correctly it will definitely improve your golf game.
