How do you know how hard to hit the golf ball when putting?
Think about passing a baseball when playing catch,
naturally we use our athletic judgement to determine the strength behind the toss. On a practice green take a couple of golf balls and toss them to the cup before you start the round to get the feel for distance and direction.
Tee it High, Hit it Long!
Launch it nice and high, tee the ball higher and further forward in your stance. This will allow you to catch the ball on the up swing and launch the ball.
The "Feet-Together Drill" helps with rhythm, balance and contact, here's how to get a back on track with your golf swing.
Step 1. Start with a nine iron and take your stance by placing your feet close together or just an inch a part with the ball in the middle of your feet.
Step 2. Hit several shots at half swing, do not swing at full speed or sway your lower body it will cause you to lose balance. Swing smoothly so you can control the ball and make solid contact....
Step 3. Speed up the tempo of your swing and switch out the
club to an 8, 7, then 6 for an extended feel, swing several more times.
Step 4. Remember golf is not a game of brute force if you try to overpower the golf ball you will be disappointed with the results. It is useless without proper timing and tempo. In order to create a smooth and repeatable swing you must master the balance and rhythm, let the club move naturally through the ball.
