Downhill putts are generally feared the most by golfers. Here are three ways to have more success on the downhill slopes:
- Even though you know it’s a downhiller, just take a moment to walk to the other side of the hole to see the extent of the slope you face.
- Before you putt, have a couple of “feel” strokes, looking at the hole, to rehearse and lock in the feel with which you will use to stroke the putt.
- Go ahead and make the stroke with that same feel. Be confident and do not second guess yourself over the putt, or make an in-stroke correction. If you do this, chances are you will leave it short, with another knee knocker to face.
Hope this helps next time you are faced with a slippery slope.
