|TIP: ELIMINATE ALL CHUNKS|
|Hitting it fat out of the rough is a product of the backswing. If you make your normal swing, keeping the club low to the ground going back, you’ll come down too shallow and catch the grass behind the ball. To avoid this, make a steeper takeaway, hinging your wrists quicker from the start (left). This sets up a sharp descent back to the ball for clean contact. Open the face slightly at address, aim left, and hold your wrists firm through impact. You’ll catch it flush and hit a little fade. —Butch Harmon, Golf Digest Teaching Professional|
Butch Harmon was featured in Golf Digest’s Tip of the Week eBlast Newsletter, highlighted is a tip from Butch on how to break a putt.
|TIP: EVERY PUTT IS STRAIGHT|
|Here’s what amateurs do wrong on breaking putts: They might read the right amount of break, but when they get over the ball, they look at the hole. When you do that, your aim shifts that way. Instead, think of every putt as straight to the high point of the line, or the apex. That’s my focus point. If I get it there, the slope will do the rest. One more thing: The center of the hole shifts based on break (left). Imagine the hole as a clockface: The center is 6 o’clock on a straight putt, and adjust accordingly for break. —Butch Harmon, Golf Digest Teaching Professional|
