Reduce Your Putting Stroke Errors

As mentioned in a prior tip about alignment we discussed the shoulders, arms, wrists, hands and putter being a single unit. This unit is considered as a single system which pivots (rocks) about the spine, between the shoulder blades. We refer to this as the “lock and rock” movement.

Maintaining this unit as a single system is important and helps in reducing sources of error in the stroke. The reason is that the single system, will have similar properties to that of a Pendulum, but swinging in a tilted plane – tilted at about ten degrees to the vertical. This single system will – if allowed to – promote good natural rhythm.
