The Fourth Key:

What’s your putting stroke like? You must consider this because depending on your wrist action, it will dictate what type of grips you need. Players with more of a pendulum action will choose wider or fatter grips to inhibit any unwanted wrist action. A golfer who has more wrist action in their stroke will preferrepparttar smaller, thinner, more traditional sized grips. As these are believed to promote a smoother release ofrepparttar 137561 ball.

The Fifth Key:

Look at your stroke path. Do you have an inside-square-inside (small arc) path to your stroke? If so you probably have a tendency to pull your putts and will benefit from what’s known as heel shafted model putter. If you’re more of straight-back-straight-through stroke you will have more of a tendency to push your putts. You would then benefit more from a face balanced putter withrepparttar 137562 weight dispersed evenly inrepparttar 137563 putter head.

With that being said, go get yourself a properly fitted putter. Every golfer knows good putting is essential and you’re leaving yourself at a huge disadvantage by not usingrepparttar 137564 proper equipment!

Your problems won't go away just by buying a belly or long putter. As with all aspects ofrepparttar game, it requires practice. Like anything it takes a lot of work to do extremely well and get to where your mind will totally believe in it.

It is important to get properly fitted for a belly or long putter. You can't just extendrepparttar 137522 shaft of your standard putter and expect it to work right. The head is too light andrepparttar 137523 shaft too flexable. The heads of belly and long putters are much heavier and have special shafts to handlerepparttar 137524 extra length and weight. 

A simple to way to measure for a belly putter is to attach a string with a weight torepparttar 137525 middle arch of a pair of glasses. Takerepparttar 137526 proper address position withrepparttar 137527 ball offrepparttar 137528 left heel or left instep,repparttar 137529 shaft at 90 degrees with the sole ofrepparttar 137530 putter flat onrepparttar 137531 ground andrepparttar 137532 butt touching your belly with medium pressure and see whererepparttar 137533 string hangs. The proper shaft length should putrepparttar 137534 string one inch onrepparttar 137535 inside ofrepparttar 137536 ball.

As alwaysrepparttar 137537 fundamentals still apply, starting with alignment. Alignment must be correct forrepparttar 137538 backstroke and forward stroke to follow. If alignment is bad,repparttar 137539 other two will be bad also. 

Now torepparttar 137540 big question. Should everyone go out and switch to a belly or long putter? NO! If you are a good putter, don't mess with it. In other words, "don't fix what ain't broken." Most players would have a good or at least better stroke if they just allowed it to happen. We get inrepparttar 137541 way by trying to manipulaterepparttar 137542 putter onrepparttar 137543 right path and steering it torepparttar 137544 hole. Just letrepparttar 137545 putter dorepparttar 137546 work.
