Hi guys, in today’s video we’re going to talk about how this basketball can help you get a pure roll on your putts and to start draining a lot more, take some more money off your friends.
So let’s imagine that this is my putter face and this is a giant golf ball. We can see if we’re looking at this, we can see the seams kind of coming up and down the golf ball. I want you to watch that.
Let’s imagine that this is my putter face. As I’m coming back, my putter face is going to be delofting and as I get in contact with this ball, it’s going to grab the ball and put some topspin on that ball.
My putter face is rolling the ball end over end, we’re going to feel like this ball is suction-cupped to the green, and really rolling purely as it goes into the cup. That’s what we’re going to feel like, that’s what’s happening to a small degree as we’re rolling some putts.
Let’s go ahead and do the same thing with my putter. Now as I set up, I want in my backstroke, I want to deloft that putter just like I did with that piece of wood. My putter face is going to stay low to the ground and I’m going to lose a little bit of loft.
Now that was very exaggerated, I really delofted the face. In reality, this is only going to be a couple degrees, but you’re going to be able to feel this if you’re rolling the ball very, very pure.
Now as I’m coming through this shot, I want to feel like I’m getting that topspin as I’m contacting the ball, getting that nice roll on the ball.
Then as I finish, this is really, really important for those of you who’re getting the yips, who feel like your putting stroke’s breaking down. I want to the back of my left hand to continue to that hole.
The back of my left hand is going to be kind of the same thing as the putter face, whereas I’m coming in, I want the back of my left hand to feel me rolling that ball end over end.
So this is going to stay nice and solid as I’m coming through. If I start to flip, if I start to flip this putter I can get my putter face going left, I can flip and go to the right. I can hit it too hard, I can hit too soft, it just starts to go all over the place. So I’ve got to be really nice and consistent.
Low putter face going back, topspin, really consistent back of the left hand. You’ll notice Jordan Spieth doing that a lot, really keeping that nice consistent back of the left hand, keeping it going toward the target. We’re going to try to make a lo more putts.
There we go, guys. Good, smooth roll, get that topspin on there, back of the left hand going to the cup. You’re going to make some more putts.
