Local Rules

Did You Know...

In a typical round of golf, 43 percent of the shots that you take are putts. Because most golfers hit very few greens in regulation, putting has a bigger impact on your score than most golfers realize. Most amateur golfers under read the break of their putts and will miss 85 percent of their putts on the low side of the hole. 
“A good putter is a match for anyone, a bad putter is a match for no one.”
-Harvey Penick

Drew's Tip Of The Month


Look at the slope of the green before you get to it.
Once on the green, is the putt uphill, downhill, or level? Speed determines the line.
Will the putt break to the left, right, a combination of the two, or is it straight? Use your imagination or picture you poured a bucket of water on your line. Which way would the water drain?
Use the straight imprinted line on the side of your golf ball to aim the ball in the direction that you want the ball to start. Aim your putter’s face square to that line. The putter’s face affects direction much more than its path. You now have your direction, time to focus on distance.
Most three putts happen because of poor distance control. Proper distance control is rooted in knowing clearly, in your mind’s eye, how far away your ball is from your target. Make the target small, such as a blade of grass inside the cup. Burn the image of your target in your mind’s eye even though we don’t look at the target with our eyes when we make our stroke.
Develop a routine where you look the same number of times at your target and with each look make the target clearer than the one before it.
On the last look at the target, immediately come back to the ball and begin your stroke while the target is still fresh in your mind.
 
Practice, practice, practice!
