Golf Putters and Golf Putting

One of the most exciting parts of playing golf is the moment when the player is about to putt. When you watch them do it, it seems effortless and easy. The truth is it’s not as simple as aim, swing, hit, and putt. It actually requires a lot of skill. Putting Golfneeds both physical and mental execution. Because of this, beginners feel most frustrated when they are in the putting green. For starters, let’s first learn more about the golf putters and then some basic putting techniques next.
Let’s first take a look at some of the elements of a putter. Knowing a few details would help you choose what to use when putting.

Length


Find the right putter length for you based on your height and arm length. To do this, simply get a standard putter, get into your playing position, with hands placed under your shoulders while bending your shoulders and touching your rib cage. Your hips must also be over your heels. If your grip is on the shaft, then you need a shorter putter.
You can take note of the 3 variations of golf putters. The Conventional Putter ranges from 33-35 inches long. The long putter has extra-long handle and measures 48-52 inches. The belly putter is usually 41-44 inches long.

Weight


The length of the putter and its weight is related to the swing or to your putting stroke. When your putter weighs heavy, then it’s used for slow stroke; this, however, may cause the ball to fall short from the hole. Light putters allow fast stroke, but the tendency is to overshoot. The weight also depends on the material that was used on the putter head. “Dumb” putters are light and made of durable plastic, zinc or aluminum. “Smart” putters are a bit heavy and made of stainless steel, titanium or brass. The weight also depends on the head of your Golf putters.

Blade head


This is the most traditional type and is lighter and smaller.

Mallet


This is heavier and larger with a bigger sweet spot.
Next, let’s have some basic pointers on putting techniques. You need to have a basic routine, and continue to practice with it.
Let’s try the following 5 steps:

Relax

You have to slow down your heart rate, make deep breaths, relax your nerves, and maintain a still and relaxed body. “Yips” refer to unrelaxed putting nerves resulting to poor putting.

Position

Make sure to have the correct and proper stance. You can choose the upright position especially when using the long or belly putter, or when you have back problems and cannot handle the bent position. The ball is always at the middle of your position. Maintain a triangle position of your shoulder and arms.

Grip

How you hold or grip your golf putters have impact on the path and direction of the ball. You can use the overlapping grip or the cross handed grip. The cross handed grip is best if you have an unsteady wrist.

Read the Green

This lets you know how much force to put in your stroke. Consider the length and thickness of the grass, the slope of the green, and the speed and direction of the wind. All of these would affect the speed and path of your ball.

Distance Control

Check the distance between your putter and the ball. You may try a 10 inch distance at first. Try different distances for your back swing and forward swing to know how far the ball will go for each applied length of swing.
Hoping this few information would help beginners to learn more about golf putters and putting techniques.
