TIPS FOR GOLF SWING: CHECK FOR WATER IN THE CUP

golf swing instructionsOne of the best tips for golf swing is to inspect the putting cup for any water before beginning your putt.

The reason why this suggestion is one of the best tips for golf swing is that it will provide you with information about the amount of moisture on the green.

Moisture on a green will slow down the roll of your putt; the more water in the cup the more moisture on the green and the more moisture on the green, the slower the roll of the putt.

It will impact a short putt as well as a long putt.

If your inspection of the cup reveals there is several inches of water in it, you will need to take your putter head back from your ball much further than usual.

For example, when I use my Locked-In Putting System™, one of the best golf methods for putts of more than four paces, I square my putter head on my aim line to the back of my ball, lock my right elbow to my right rib cage and keep it locked in such manner, keep my head steady and take my putter head back until the outside edge of my watch band intersects with the back of the ball from my line of vision –for putts of approximately 8 paces on a flat and dry surface– before beginning my forward stroke of the putt.

However, if there is an appreciable amount of water in the cup—meaning a lot of moisture on the green –I will take my putter head back until the inside edge of my watch band intersects the back of my ball from my line of vision,  before beginning my forward stroke of the putt.

You also should keep in mine that if there is a lot of moisture on a green and you are faced with an uphill putt, you should take your putter head back that much more than usual because the combination of an uphill putt and moisture on a green will appreciably slow the roll of the putt.

Therefore, please remember to inspect the putting cup on a green before stroking your putt and make adjustments in how much further you will need to take your putter head back from the ball to compensate for the moisture.

If you have been rolling putts short  because of moisture on a green you may find this information to be some of the best tips for golf swing ever. It is one of the very best golf putting tips.

You should have some may to measure how far back you should take your putter head back relative to the distance between the ball and the cup.

I use the Locked-In Putting System™ for such purpose. You will find information about the Locked-In Putting System™ at http://lockedinputting.com
