GOLF CHALLENGE: PUTTING

Brian Gott, Malaska Golf Certified Instructor and a nationally ranked club fitter, takes us through a five-day putting challenge to improve your overall putting skills on the green. He covers setup, correct grip, posture, and stance.

Brian then moves on to tempo and the importance of finding the putting cadence that works for you.

The next topic Brian covers is path and the significance of getting the clubface square to the ball.

On Day 4, Brian shows us his favorite drill for judging the correct putting speed.

Finally, on Day 5, Brian shows us how to put together all the putting skills you have learned so far. He also reiterates the importance of getting fitted for the right putter from a local club fitter. Your putter, not your driver, might be the most important club in your bag.
