Tofino Golf: Improve your Putting!

by Keith "Gibby" Gibson, Tofino

One of the least glamorous parts of the game of golf can sometimes be putting. However, I think you will agree after watching the amazing display of young Tiger Woods at the 1997 Masters, that making clutch 5 and 6 footers can go a long way to keeping your score respectable.

Most amateurs use too much wrist action in their putting stroke, causing the putter face to be in the wrong position at impact. This leads to pushed and pulled putts, especially from short distances.

Try the following to help you develop a more constant stroke:

  • Switch to a reverse overlap grip by placing the index finger of your top hand over the baby finger of the lower hand.
  • Practice putting 5 footers with two "Band-Aids" on the putter. Place the padding on either side of the sweet spot about 1 inch apart, this will teach you to hit the center of the putter.

Good luck and come see me for help with your game!
