LPGA standout Penny Hammel shows you how to develop a putting routine.
Today we are going to talk about developing a putting routine.
I’m going to go over a couple things that I do whenever I’m setting up for a putt and hopefully this will help you.
First and foremost I look at the green. I try to see which is which side of the green is higher. And I look to see how
much higher it is. Then I’ll go to the low side of the hole and I’ll try to figure out how much it’s going to break. How much I have to play it on the high side to get it to the hole.
When I step up to the putt obviously I’m looking to make it if I don’t make it I want to get it within a foot or two so I can make the next cut coming back.
Having a putting routine you use over and over again will help to build confidence on the green and lower your scores.
