Marc Albert Lag Putting

Marc Albert Lag Putting

There is no question that Dave Pelz is one of the best, if not THE BEST, at teaching the art of the short game. Marc Albert, who is the Senior Instructor at the Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools gives us a great tip on how to control your lag putting with speed control.

For Amatuer golfers, lag putting is an essential tool to posting a decent card. Most of the time, if you are like me, you always seem to find yourself on the wrong side of the green with a long birdie putt ahead of you. With a 3-putt almost guarenteed, you try to hit it up there in hopes you get close enough to get lucky on the par putt. If this is you, Marc Albert has a great tip on how you can get better at lag putting and it starts with speed control. Here are the three step to being successful at lag putting and speed control.

1. HOLD YOUR FINISH

2. APPLY YOUR RHYTHM

3. LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES

 

Steve Jones Putting Tip

Steve Jones Putting Tip

Steve Jones is a veteran on the Champions Tour. He got his big break in 1996 by winning the Open Championship. He has carded 8 PGA wins while on Tour. The difference maker on any professional golf tour is putting. If you can’t putt, you won’t win. If you get the dreaded “3 putt”, your chances of winning that tournament went from slim to none! Golf Life caught up with Steve Jones to learn more about how he is so consistent with the flat stick.

There are two things that Steve Jones stresses when it comes to putting. 1. Alignment. Making sure you are reading the green the right way and then setting yourself up in the right direction is extremely important. If you are not lined up correctly, you can pretty much forget about making the putt. And 2. Distance. Once you get yourself aligned, don’t worry about anything else except for controlling your distance.

Focusing on these two aspects of putting will not only make you a better putter, but a more consistent putter. The key for amateur players is eliminating the “3 putts”. Everybody “3 putts”. If we can change some of those “3 putts” into “2 putts”, your score will change dramatically. It could change by 10 stokes if you work at it. But it starts with alignment and distance. If you can figure out those two aspects of putting, your on a fast track to scoring lower.

Check out the full tip above and find out why Steve Jones has been one of the most consistent putters on the Champions Tour.

Peter Senior Putting Tip

Peter Senior Putting Tip

Peter Senior was born in Singapore and turned professional in 1978. Over the years he has participated in the Web.com and PGA Tours. Most recently though, he has seen success on the Champions Tour. He doesn’t make his money by hitting the golf ball a country mile. He makes is money with the flat stick. He has made a name for himself in the golfing world by consistently being one of the best putters in golf. If you ask Peter Senior, he would tell you that his success on the greens didn’t come easy. He worked hard each and every year to master the art of putting. Golf Life caught up with Peter Senior at a Champions Tour event in Arizona where he gave us a putting tip that will help you get ready for your round and become a better long distance putter.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of putting tips for putts under 10 feet. How many times do you see a putting tip that helps you with the 50-60 foot putts? Peter Senior says the most important part of putting is eliminating the three putts as much as possible. In order to become confident in your long range putting, you have to practice at it. In Peter Senior’s pre-round putting routine he goes to the practice green and putts at every hole at 10 feet or shorter. He does this for about 40 min. Then, he picks the hole farthest away and tries to two-putt as many times as he can.

Watch the magic happen right before your eyes in this pre-round putting tip with Peter Senior. You will not only prepare for your round but you will get better at golf if you take the time and do what Peter does!
