Match Posture With Path

The secret to consistently putting well is to match your posture to

your stroke type. However, the conventional wisdom applied by most

recreational golfers is that while putting, anything goes (witness the

claw grip, the left-hand low technique and the belly-anchored stroke).

And while many a Tour victory has been fueled by an unorthodox method,

one fundamental shouldn’t be ignored: How you stand to the ball

conditions how you stroke it.

Conquer Hardpan

Regardless of where you play, you’ll eventually face a tough pitch off

hardpan. This is a dicey situation, as ultra-tight lies such as hardpan

make it easy for the clubhead to bounce off the turf and into the top

half of the golf ball, skulling it over the green. The key for pitches

off hardpan is to make sure the clubhead does anything but bounce off

the turf. Knowing how to accomplish this will save you strokes

not only in this situation, but in dozens of others that involve tight lies.
