How to improve your putting technique

You won’t find a professional golf instructor anywhere who would argue with the familiar golf cliché, “Drive for show – putt for dough.” While big tee shots and rising approaches look and feel great, they’re all for naught if you can’t sink that all-important five-foot putt for par.

The putter is the only club in the bag that a golfer needs on every hole. In fact, a par score on each hole involves the assumption that the player needs two putts on each hole to find the bottom of the cup. Famed golf coach Hank Haney often tells his students that there are three keys to good golf: keep the drive coming in, take one shot when approaching the green, and finish with the expected two putts.
