Putting Stability

Certainly ‘Putting’ is about ‘Stable Lever Triangles’ … Hands, Wrists, Forearms, Elbows, Upper Arms and Shoulder Sockets. When any of your ‘Lever Parts’ move, so usually do your ‘Clubface Aim and Clubhead Path’. Consistency unavoidably becomes a frustrating myth.

Let us go back for a moment to our ‘Lever Primary Articulating Joints’ (‘PAJ’ excluding the Finger Joints) They are the 1) ‘Wrist Hinges, 2) your ‘Elbows and 3) your Shoulder Joints. (see ‘Scapular Stability’ – fairly ‘Neutral and not pushed forward or pulled back. ‘Scaps’ are part of your Lower Body Machine … LBM) ‘Lever Assemblies’ are suspended from the ‘Shoulder Axis’ which is positioned atop of your ‘Spinal Body Crankshaft’. This includes ‘Forward Inclination, Aft Tilt and Knee Flex’. Once your ‘Lower Body Machine’ is stable you shall soon discover more ‘Confidence, Comfort and Consistency.

‘Clubface Aim and Clubhead Path’ invite and feed success! ‘Clubface Aim’ is straight down the ‘Initial Ball Rolling Line’ to the ‘Top Of Break’ if there is one. ‘Clubhead Path’ can be one of three designs … 1 Inside Out, 2) Square Square and 3) Outside In.  

If you elect to induce ‘Arc or Radius in your Clubhead Path’ (elbows against the Ribcage) you shall have to manage this variable curving element. Golf loves ‘Consistency’! Making a Putting Arc means that you have a very short interval at or during which the Clubface is properly aimed. At all other times it shall be Open or Closed. Hence variables enter into the formula!

This ‘Country Gentleman Golf Teacher’ prefers a Take-Away that is fairly ‘Straight Back and Straight Through’ … Square, Square, Square’. How might we accomplish this? ‘Steer or Point Your Target Elbow’ down your chosen ‘Ball Rolling Line’ (BRL)! Clubface Aim variation will be markedly reduced. To stabilize the Brace Lever, press your Brace Biceps against your Pectoralis Chest Muscle and keep that contact throughout the entire Putting or Chipping Stroke.

Now you own ‘Less Moving Parts and more Stable Predictability’ … smaller numbers on your score card! Bigger smiles?
