To improve your golf game, it’s vital that you take golf lessons. Golf is a sport that is almost impossible to learn without some sort of guidance. Luckily, there are golf experts around the country whose job it is to teach golf. By taking golf lessons, you can drastically improve your game in a relatively short amount of time. Taking golf lessons can be an expensive, time-consuming effort. And like any good or service that will cost money and require time, you should be careful before you buy.  Golf can be a really costly game to play and it is reasonable to assume that you have invested a fair amount of money in your equipment – golf clubs, golf bag, golf balls, golf clothing, golf cart etc; – therefore doesn’t it make common sense for you to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your skills and capabilities?

Physical and Mental Factors

4.10 Ball Position Posture and Flow-Lines

In sections 4.4 through 4.9 the factors discussed are the building blocks involved with the swinging action of your putting stroke mechanics. From here on in this chapter the factors I’ll explain will be ones relating to your body mind and equipment. While all of these are less familiar and less popular to work on than the other fundamentals of stroke mechanics that doesn’t mean they won’t be important to your success on the greens.

For example say you employ a very unusual putting posture but it’s one you like and lets you execute a perfect stroke consistently and repeatedly. Then I say it’s absolutely acceptable. If it works and you like it it’s okay with me no matter how odd or unconventional it seems. However if anything about your unusual posture adversely affects one or more of the fundamentals of stroke mechanics then you should change it. So all of the following are important only in how they influence your stroke.

Ball Position

Any putting stroke that swings in an arc suspended from somewhere around your sternum (or some other spot between your shoulders) will have a bottom to its arc a low point a place where the sole of the club is closest to the ground. I have found that the best place to position the ball in your stance is approximately two inches ahead of this bottom point. At this spot you have the best chance of striking the ball on an ever-so-slight upward arc as your putter comes up from its lowest point (Figure 4.10.1). Striking the ball slightly on the upswing gets putts rolling on top of the grass without lofting them too high which produces bounce or hitting them down into the surface of the green so they squirt off to the right or left.

Of course where your putter contacts the ball also depends on the effective loft of the putterface at the moment of impact. In Figure 4.10.2 the center ball is being struck slightly on the upswing by a putter with a small amount of loft so it starts on top of the grass with almost no spin. This is the ideal situation.

First of all, it’s important that you realize that your grip will affect the results that you get. However, it’s not as complicated as the other systems make it out to be. First, grab the club with your right hand so the face of it is toward the target. Keep the face pointed toward the target, while placing your left hand on the bottom of the grip or handle. At this point you should be holding your left hand out flat, so that it is touching the bottom of the grip. Position the joint where your left pinky meets your palm directly underneath the handle of the club. Keep the pinky there and place the first joint in your left forefinger directly underneath the club. Now, do not lift your fingers up, bringing the grip of the club into your palm; instead, hold the handle steady with your left fingers and wrap your palm around the top of the grip. This is an important distinction. Again, don’t wrap the fingers towards the palm, but instead wrap your palm around the top of the club. Now, you should be able to easily place your left thumb directly on top of the club. This should form a V-shape where your left thumb and left forefinger meet. This V-shape should point directly to your right shoulder when it’s complete.
