Acceleration On Short Golf Putts (Video)
Acceleration On Short Golf Putts (Video)

You so if you're really keen that you'd like to stop decelerating on your putts. You know we've gone over the reasons why decelerating is a bad thing we've covered the the reasons why decelerating might be happening so the opposite to decelerating is clearly accelerating. We'd like to accelerate the putter through the back of a golf ball so had we practiced that what we need to work on well actually if you've been watching a couple of these videos you might notice I've got myself quite a tricky little putt here it's downhill it's left to right it's a little bit awkward and it's a very difficult putt to practice accelerating on because it's downhill with a lot of brake kinda goes against the concept of hitting the ball hard. So what I would consider a better place to be to practice accelerating is actually to put up the hill.

Now I'm going to turn my back to you and I apologize for doing that but it's just so I can get an uphill putt I'm going to try and stand on a relatively flat line here and will try and accelerate to my putting stroke so if you want to get the putter to go shorter on the way back longer on the way through. Which is a great accelerating struck out encourage you to find a patch of your putting green that's uphill and not mega quick you know if you'll start on the greens Augusta sloping down here and you tickle it you haven't really learned to accelerate the putter so a nice even paced or relatively slow green and up hill is probably better they can maybe see from the back there. My stroke is short a long short but long through and as I'm hitting puts here I'm really keen that I try and get the ball to go up to if not slightly past the hole regardless of whether this putt goes in I wouldn't want to leave it short a classic deceleration would be big there short there and the ball doesn't reach the hole so one more here trying to get it to the hole short on the way back longer on the way through accelerating and I'm hitting these puts the your on the hole. That gives them the best chance of going in going in or not is not relevant for this drill at the moment I'm just focused on the accelerating on those uphill putts to try and get the ball to have a chance rather than decelerating leaving it short because that one is never going in.
