“Putting Philosophy” 


The putting philosophy centers around the “Eye, Mind, Body Approach,” that’s been used to train a wide variety of golfers. Once it’s mastered, you will be aiming more consistently and seeing the target line more accurately. This will lead to a more efficient putting stroke and better speed control.

As you practice putting, the practice should be geared toward one or more of these five skills. The golfer needs to know why they are practicing a certain way and what they are suppose to learn from that practice, so they will see improvement in one of these five areas when they play.

The 5 putting skills

1. Green Reading – Picking a target to aim at
2. Aiming and Alignment
3. Touch – Rolling the ball to stop at a specific distance
4. Mechanics – How the different parts of the body function
5. Visual Concepts – Using your eyes to link the eyes, mind, & body
