Putting – The Correct Arm & Hand Position


Putting Address Basics – Arm & Hand Position

Hi, Robin here. So are you a player you feel when you’re putting you struggle with a lot of rotation to your putter face? The putter face is going from open to close quite quickly, making it difficult to start the ball on line.

If you think that’s you, what I want to do is make sure that at address you’re gripping the club in a way that the putter shaft and your left arm is lined up. That’s gonna take you to grip it through the middle of your life-line down into your fingers. So shaft and forearm lined up. As you take your right hand, again it’s done through the palm, so we can keep the forearms lined up. This position will help you reduce the rotation to the putter face. When your hands and the shaft is lower on a different angle to your forearms, that’s going to give another component to adding rotation, which is really not what we want in the putting stroke. This is why you’ll see so many good putters with their forearms on the putter lined up. And they’re gripping a club in the way that makes that possible.

So, I say, a simple tip for anybody who’s feeling like they’re getting a lot of rotations of the putter face, struggle to start the ball on line. Make sure your forearms and your putter shaft are lined up. And you’re gripping the club in the way that makes that possible. So always thanks for watching. If you any questions on that, please leave them below. I’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible. If any suggestions regarding any part of the game, I’d love to hear from you. Until next time, good luck with your practice.
