So I’m sure we’re all use to seeing the golfers on the TV stalking around the putts, lining their putts up carefully, often getting down on the ground just looking at the break of a putt. Occasionally you’ll see the golfers even plum bobbing putts, which is where we hold the golf club vertically trying to create a vertical line through the putter, through the ball, through the hole as well. Now players believe that by doing this and by plum bobbing a putt they can then look through the shaft and work out which way the land is lying, whether there’s a high side or a low side. And if you’re struggling to see which way the ball is breaking maybe plum bobbing the putt can work for you. Hold the club up perfectly vertical, put the ball at one end and the hole at the other end and then have a look to see if you can see which way the land is lying and therefore getting a better read on your putt. It’s not essential to do it on every putt and when you’re doing it make sure that you’re not taking too long doing it because that could slow play down. But if you’re struggling to see putt, maybe plum bobbing would be a good helpful tip for you to be able to gauge the break on a putt a little bit better.
