- At address, the eyes should be directly over the golf ball and target line, or just inside it.
- To help position your eyes over the ball, most putter heads have a top surface split into two separate elevations, with an indicator placed on each elevation. When used correctly, this mechanism ensures your eyes are directly over the ball. If your head/eyes drift outside or inside the ball, the putter’s bi-level alignment indicators will no longer match up.
- Keep your eyes on the ball and over the target line throughout the stroke.
