Starting it on Line (Putting)

 

It's Henry Fall from the Milo Lines Academy, joined by Dana Finkelstein, an LPGA Tour sensation. Ready for another putting tip? Today, we're diving into the crucial concept of the starting line.

On the LPGA Tour, nailing the starting line is a constant practice. We've got a neat trick for you using what we call "Django blocks." While you're at home, improvise with tees or gates to refine that initial path. The key is tightening up your starting line, ensuring your putt follows the desired trajectory.

We usually position an obstacle about a foot or 18 inches from the ball. Sure, it's a tad closer than ideal, but it's perfect for practice. Let's set up and roll that ball through the gate.

Starting simple? Great. Now, let's ramp it up a notch. Even legends like Tiger Woods embrace this drill—it's a staple for refining accuracy. Tour players swear by it to calibrate their game every week.

Stay tuned for a future video on setup techniques. This exercise ensures your ball takes the intended route, giving you the green light to fine-tune your putt's speed. If you're nicking the sides of the gate, it's time for a setup tweak. Your putting precision will thank you later!
