Increase Your Feel and Distance Control with a Insert Putter Head Senior Golf Tip (Video)
Increase Your Feel and Distance Control with a Insert Putter Head Senior Golf Tip (Video)

Okay we are going to talk about getting a better feel and a better distance control with your putter. Putting is the most crucial part of the game for fact. Unfortunately it’s the part of the game that people tend to spend the least amount of money on. People will spend 200 300 pound on a driver equivalent 100 pound for normal sort of putter. So first of all I’d say to you look at your equipment think about it, is your putter 15 20 years old is it a putter which is all sort of skew in a sense of it’s a face which is just stainless steel? Now you might think where am I driving here, if you’ve got a putter which is just a plain face it’s made out of normally 17-4 stainless steel it’s very very hard yes it’s robust and it lasts a long time and maybe you still got that one from 20 30 years ago.

What happens is that the ball comes off that club face quite hard and quite aggressive so when it comes to feel, the feel on a scale of zero to 10 is much really closer to two if you are lucky but it s hard. If you look at the new putters nowadays like on this on here you’ll see this like a here on my club face, my own putter it’s a blue face it’s an insert which is being put inside the stainless steel head to produce a better feel. And putting is about criteria and really is two things it’s about feel and it’s about the actual pace so feel and pace. If you’ve got something which is so hard you are not going to really win the battle so what I want you to do I want you to look at your putter try and get two putters one which hasn’t got an insert and one that has. What I want you to do is I want you to go into the putting green and I want you to set yourself up away from the hole six foot 12 foot 18 foot and just maybe hit three balls in each sort of group. Just use your norm to insert the putter first of all and putt to the whole and then the second group and the third group and then do the same thing again with the opposite face putter just stay in the steel one. You’ll find that you’ll definitely have more role you won’t have any feel if you have more role quite often you may end up going too far past the hole and on slick greens that’s not a good idea. Let’s be honest we wait all winter to go on these greens in the summer when they are dry the grass is short, they are rolling beautiful. But don’t you want a better feel? Isn’t that what we wait all winter for? To just roll our putt up? So think about that insert what would be a good set to find out if your putter is as good as you like it to be but go onto the putting green and look at the color of the green. I would try and say maybe put about six balls down line yourself up, swing the putter back in through and try and remember this is all about distance and feel. Try and let that ball came out to maybe two foot short of the edge of the putting green before you get to the collar. Try the putting to his zone so maybe put a club down on the collar and short of it and obviously put into that sort of gate way try to get that feel. From that even if you don’t want a favor the inserted putter which is more forgiving and is easier to use maybe you’ll increase the feel of what you’ve actually got with your original putter. So go out and practice there is a good drill for you but a putter with an insert is definitely a far better choice than one that isn’t. At the end of the day if it works for you stay with it, enjoy your practice.
