How to Setup for a Cross Handed Putting Grip Style Ladies Putter Tip (Video)

Here is a great tip for you, if you are struggling to hold a shorter Putt from say five or six feet’s. Try Putting with a Cross-Handed Grip, because it really does prevent any accessories movement, keeps the wrist in the correct position, at the correct angles and it just basically allows you to use your left side as a lever and just hit the ball straight down the target line. So here’s how to do that. Initially you want to just use the right hand to aim the Putter Face down the target line. So once you’ve aimed the Putter Face with you right hand arm, then set your feet, talk to your feet shoulder with the per we’ve got the ball in the center of the stance and the arms are nice and relaxed. Eyes are over the ball or just on the inside of the golf ball and; that’s going to allow you now to place your left hand below your right.

So that’s a cross handed position if you are a right handed golfer, the left hand is below the right hand. But the way to do it is use your right hand holding the Putter to aim the face first and then place your left hand below your right hand and it has created the Cross-Handed Grip. Traditionally you would as a right handed golfer hold with your left hand higher, but cross handed your left hand goes lower than your right hand. Okay, that’s now going to allow you to create a lever from your left shoulder down your left arm and into the Putter. So you can just basically just swing the left arm from the shoulder and it’s already going to help you hold a lot more Putt. It creates a Straight-Back-Straight-Through swing there’s fairly little to go wrong with it, so try if you are struggling with those five to six Putters. So aim with the right hand on left hand below, create the lever Straight-Back-Straight-Through you will find you will hold a lot more Putts like that. The only issue with using Cross-Handed Grip is that it’s not the grip you would use for every other shot. So on longer shots you can lose your feel, but don’t worry if you find with longer Putts you are losing your feel, have the more traditional grip. You could play so left hand high for longer Putts where you get the feel, but as soon a s you get to that five or six foot range swap to the Cross-Handed Grip it really helps you to lock the wrist swing straight back and straight through and you will have far more shorter Putts.
