Putting numbers 1,2,3,are good. Putting number 4 is questionable. I started playing golf 70 years ago. My first (unpaid) instructor preached, "LISTEN for the ball to drop in the hole." Don't look, listen. Perhaps number 4 should be "LISTEN." It is difficult to train yourself to just listen and not follow the ball to the hole.

As long as you pause before lifting up to avoid having it affect your stroke, whether you stay down for one second or until the ball drops, will make no difference. And if you miss and end up past the hole but never looked at how it moved, you just sacrificed knowing some important information that would help you aim the next putt, all for some advice that doesn't make one bit of difference to the outcome once the ball is rolling.

Hi Barry, we are talking semantics here. I'm sure you don't listen on 30-50 footers, but you listen on 5 footers. So basically, we are doing the same thing. My head doesn't come on short ones either. I'm just doing the segments consistently.

Generally speaking, they should be on the grip of the club.... Haha. Just kidding.

Look at all the variations you see in a Tour event. How can anyone tell you an exact anything when so many things can be effective? Figure out what is comfortable and most consistent for you.

Luc, my hands are even with the back of the ball. Pretty vertical.

Martin, a while back you did a demonstration where I thought you recommended NOT keeping the head the down. You did a demonstration of keeping your head on the wall, and watching the ball.

Can you please clarify?

Thank you.

That was a regular swing. This is putting.

Putting is putting. Swinging is different, all together. Completely different biomechanics that allows a head to stay down.

Martin,

Great tip! Seems to allow the subconscious to take over by following the 1-2-3 routine, as opposed to over-thinking the mechanics of the putt (pre-frontal cortex messing us up yet again).

Also love that Ping Ketsch putter - I have the same one and it's been great!

Cheers,
Vince

Martin, one of the reasons I love your instruction is that you have the uncanny ability to deliver a single phrase/thought that just makes the lesson! Here it is, "Respect the strike." Great tip and extremely well illustrated. Thanks.

I have used this routine I learned from you before the start to the season it has worked great for tempo and concentration. Thanks for all your tips they have dropped my handicap 3 strokes this past season and I had my first even par round followed by an afternoon round of one over. Your teaching methods are terrific. Hopefully I can get down and see you this winter.

What about really fast past above the hole on 11.5 or faster greens?

What about it? That's part of green reading....judging the speed. You adjust your stroke accordingly, make the putt as if the hole is closer to you.

I have learned to put well by not looking at the ball, instead I look at a spot 2-4 feet ahead on the line of the putt. This gives me confidence on putts especially under 20 feet. So is keeping the head steady is more vital than looking at the ball. Paul C. SA Tx.

Sid, you need more stroke length. Stop aiming at the hole and fixate on a spot 1.5' past the hole. Let the whole "catch" the ball.

For the last three weeks we have had wonderful tips but the problem here in Eastern Canada is we cannot use them now and will forget them by spring. It sure would be nice to have them reviewed in the spring when we can practice them. Keep up the great work and continue to keep them simple as in the past. Thanks---Brian

Hi Martin - would this great routine also work on chipping to keep your head down?

Rudolf, I don't teach "head down" on anything but putting. Most people are bad chippers because they KEEP their head down.
