Building Consistency to Develop a Great Stroke
January 4, 2012Posted by on
We all have heard and know by now, great putting starts with getting into a constant set-up. The hard thing for all golfers to do is consistently getting into that same set-up so it affects their ability to create a dependable stroke. Being able to learn how to put yourself into that set-up gives you a chance to develop the other essential skills necessary in becoming an expert putter.
I like using my K-Vest system to assist golfers get into the same set-up each and every time. Having them go through their entire routine and listening for the audio feedback before they can start the stroke is easily the fastest way to accelerate the learning curve.
Being able to get a golfer into a great set-up, starts with having a putter fitted you. From there the process goes like this:
- I position the golfer so their eyes are over the ball
- Hands under the shoulders with the elbows slightly bent
- Weight balanced
Set K-Vest “Mesh” mode and now that golfer can rest assured that they must strive to hear the music in order to pull the trigger. At the beginning it is difficult but with practice the golfer can and will work on developing that consistent set-up. Once they have developed that consistency we can observe the other essential skills associated with expert putters.
Technology is a great way to accelerate the learning process. Watch a junior golfer quickly and effectively get into the same posture at address.
