All thumbs for better putting

When it comes to putting, the excuses are countless to avoid uttering the word… “choke”… a good-old “failure to perform” under pressure. It can be called a mis-read putt, problems with distance control and so on. In reality though, when anxiety runs high and your confidence runs low, you tend to over-think. Here’s a quick-tip to avoid getting stuck in an over-thinking loop.

      Hey Dave, yeah you do follow the thumb back with your eyes. One thing you’ll notice though is that your eyes don’t move as much and as if you’re following your putter head. The other thing you’ll notice is that, when you’re following your putter head back, it can often times looks shaky and ‘stuttery’ (for lack of a better word), but you don’t get that while looking at your thumb.

    Qurstion: Have you tried the Garsen G-Max putter grip used by Heinrik Stenson? Met the originator of this grip 2 years ago and he gave me one. He showed me how to use it and it keeps your elbows in closer to your body. Won’t be coming off my Scotty Cameron putter anytime soon!!
