Make The Break

____________________________________________________________

Right-to-left-breaking-putt
On a golf putt that breaks left, set up with the golf ball slightly back (about 2 ball widths) in your stance and with your hands ahead of the ball so that the shaft leans forward. These adjustments will encourage a stroke that comes to the ball on a slightly inside-to-square path. More importantly, it minimizes the likelihood of cutting across the golf ball and pulling it left - the low side - of the hole.

Left-to-right-breaking-putt
When you're facing a golf putt that breaks right, position the golf ball forward by one or two ball widths and keep your hands behind the golf ball so that the shaft tilts slightly away from the hole. From this position, it's next to impossible to push the putt off line. Instead, your putter will travel along a square-to-square or slightly out-to-in path, keeping your putts on the hole's high side.

Straight putt
On a straight putt, focus on keeping the putter shaft in a perfectly vertical position at setup and impact. This will help you utilize the putter's loft and impart a true roll on the ball.
