How comfortable do you feel on the greens?

They say our time spent on the greens is where good scores are made or lost.

We’ve all been there where we’ve hit a cracking drive down the middle of the fairway, and when we hit our approach shot, it lands just right or catches a lucky bounce to send us onto the green. Surely it’s time for a birdie?

Then when we get onto the green and line up our putt, the pressure gets to us and we mishit the ball. We either get too excited and hit it past the hole, or we’ve left it a couple of feet short. Maybe we’ve got the pace just right but an unforeseen slope takes the ball away from our intended target.

It’s a real blow to make a three putt after making it on the green in two, so we’d like to ask you the question:

 
How comfortable do you feel on the greens?
 

Putting is such a different feel and tempo from every other aspect of the game, it can be a divisive subject when you bring it up in the clubhouse.

Our mindset when standing over a putt is very much swayed by our pre-shot expectations. It can be typical to think that the closer we are to the hole, the easier the putt, but this isn’t always the case on a green that has sharp slopes. What’s the range of your comfort zone when putting on the green?

If you feel your putting could use some improvement, it’s good to spend a bit of time thinking over why that part of your game isn’t working right now. They say golf is a mental game, but it’s just as important you’re playing with the right equipment in the first place.

  

Overcoming distance

When we’re on a large green and our putt is dozens of feet from the hole, we tend to automatically think we can’t possibly make the putt, and we’ll just get it near the hole. While this is mostly just being realistic, it’s important to get the shot right to avoid the risk of three-putting.

Putting is all about feel, and how good your golf putter feels comes into the equation when you’ve got to give your shot just the right amount of strength. The face is the all-important point-of-contact with the ball, and the face on the latest Scotty Cameron putters promotes consistency and feel above all else.

  

Sinking short putts

Shorter putts can often be just as intimidating as being a good distance away from the hole, especially if the line is hard to read or the stretch of green has a sharp slope to it. Once you’ve found your line it can be a test to get the pace just right.

The latest Scotty Cameron golf putters come equipped with attractive alignment aids that allow you to perfectly line up your ball with your intended target. Once you take the guesswork out of lining up your shot, judging the power needed will make two-putts much more achievable.
