Sort your grip


There are several ways of holding the putter, and indeed several types of stroke you can make; straight back and through, swinging in an arc or a push stroke, just to name a few.

But as Gareth Johnston shows, no matter what kind of stroke you choose to make, your hands should always be placed on the club in the same manner.

The palms of your hands should always be facing one another as you place them on the clubface; this is crucial to making a proper stroke. By either opening or closing your hands, you’re liable to open or shut the face of the putter through impact, causing you to putt the ball offline.
