Many golfers putt with their forefinger extended down the shaft of the putter. They do this trying to control the speed of the impact and the path of the putter head.
However, the downside to this is that it adds lots of tension to the grip which flows up the forearm. It also means that the putter head can be easily manipulated “in-stroke”.
We suggest that golfers avoid putting with their finger down the shaft and instead have a light grip, relax their arms and allow the stroke to flow naturally from a pivot point between the shoulders. This will enhance rhythm and the swing path, improving distance control and accuracy.
