Based on feedback from our students, who range from everyday golfers to touring professionals the downhill left to right putt is the most challenging for golfers of all levels.
This putt weaves a web of confusion in the golfers mind. More so than a straight uphill or downhill putt, speed and aim become crucially intertwined and the golfer has to be able to combine both to hole the putt.
Based on our observation, many golfers hit a tentative putt in this particular situation, rather than having confidence and being able to successfully see and feel the line and pace working together to put the ball in the hole.
We often tell our students to treat this particular putt as a straight putt, selecting the aim line and stroking the putt at a specific speed to ensure success.
Having control over the speed of the ball is important and this is helped by having a forgiving putter, such as the Frankly Frog which will deliver greater consistency in the pace that the ball comes off the putter head, because of the size of the forgiveness zone.
So, to help you find the magic potion on golf’s scariest putt, blend line, pace and confidence in your approach. For best results, add a Frankly Frog which will help chase the ghosts and spiders away!
