Two Rubber Bands for better Putting
bands placed 1 inch apart from the sweet spot of your putter will help you find center hits with the putter more often.
Distance control will be much better as will direction. As you improve place the bands closer together.
The Penny Drill for better Impact
with the ball placed on a penny is a great visual reminder of where to aim the bottom edge of the club. The purpose of this
drill is to actually hit the penny out from underneath the ball. The best drill if you are topping shots.
Piece of string and two meat skewers for putting alignment
alignment take two meat skewers, tie an 8 foot long piece of elastic or string to the eye of the skewers. When practicing
your putting on a flat putt simply stretch the string from behind the hole to 8 feet out. This will give you a very effective
and simple line to the hole. Pros have been doing this one for years to help their aim and alignment it works.
an old tire
For the feeling
of a solid impact I can still remember my first teacher having me hit an old tire with small swings.
peices of grass for a more solid grip
peice of grass under the heal pad of the left hand, one in between the left thumb and right lifeline and one under the
right fore finger. These peices of grass should stay in position from the start to the fininish of the swing. (For a great
visual on this check out hogans 1 iron in golf art.)
