Two Inch Putts


It’s easier to sink a 2 inch putt as opposed to a 20 foot putt.

So what if all we had to worry about was the first 2 inches.

Here’s a simple method to help you line up to those longer putts.

  1. Survey your putt.
  2. Pick your line
  3. Pick a spot 2 inches in front of your ball on that same line
  4. Focus on that spot. That specific blade of grass and then focus only on rolling the ball over that specific spot.

Once you do that your job is done.

Watch the video above as Colby will demonstrate this simple method for you.

    Do you look at the ball or the spot while putting?

    I like this tip. I’ve been using this method for years, but what I do differently is pick my spot 6 inches in front of the ball. This way my putter can’t decelerate.

    me personally i think 2″ is too close. someone that pushes the ball can still hit that 2″ mark. Also there is the speed factor, most putts are speed putts and one can hit that 2″ mark but speed will determine if they have matched up line with speed.
