Putting and Ball Position

Do you give this the time and attention that’s needed when you practice? If not, here are some things to consider. Ball position is critical to become a better putter, period. This affects distance control and direction, which are the two main fundamentals in putting.

Most players position the ball in the middle of the stance, move the ball more to the left in your stance (right handed players). Approximately under your left nostril, when looking straight down. The next item to consider is the shaft angle, when you move the ball further to the left or under your left nostril, move your hands forward to keep the shaft properly aligned. The picture below shows correct impact and ball rotation from a good set up position and stroke. You might not be able to see this with the naked eye, but if you are in a poor ball or shaft angle position, you create too much flight & skid. This affects the distance control and direction.
