About This Site

Dear Reader -- Thank you for visiting How to Putt

Ah, Putting.  The fastest way to lower your score is to improve your putting.  And the fastest way to get discouraged about your round is to string a bunch of three putts together.  So putting is vital to your game.  But you know this, that's why you are here.

Putting is a highly personal thing, with as many styles and methods as there are golfers.  Granted, there are some different-looking golf swings out there, but (almost) all good ones look about the same.  On the green, though, you have belly putters, reverse grips, claw grips, open stances, closed stances -- almost any variation can be made to work.

How, then to get better at putting?

I think it's pretty simple, really.  If you do the right things and practice them in the right way.

Everything on HowPutt.com is simple, easy, effective, memorable, and useful on the golf course or on the practice green.   This is especially important for the occasional player, like you.  And me.

And what about me?  I am not a PGA member, a Tour Pro, a Top 100 Teacher, or a scratch golfer.  I have nothing to sell you, no training aid with which to tempt you.  I don't make my living from golf.  I don't promise that I can stomp out your three-putts for a fee.

I only play golf when I travel to see my family, play with my boss, or when there is a scramble fundraiser through work.  I play ten times per year, in a good year.  I get to the driving range maybe ten times per year, often with my children. Does this sound familiar to you?

Some additional facts about me:
  • My USGA handicap is 8. My low lifetime round is 73.
  • I live in the USA, in the Upper Midwest, so golf season is May - October.
  • I didn't play golf in high school or college.  I have picked up the game mostly on my own, since then.
In short, I am a very good golfer for not playing much. I know what works and what doesn't.  I am deeply suspicious of golf tips and gimmicks, and free (or not so free!) advice on the golf game.

One of the great ironies of golf is that the time when people need help the most (on the course) is the worst time to provide tips.  On the golf course you need to worry about reading the green and making confident strokes, clearing your mind of distractions, and executing.  You can do this if you practice the drills on this site.
