Importance of Putting
Putting is the easiest aspect of golf to improve and lower your scores. Eliminating 3-putts alone can save the average to higher handicap golfer three to four strokes per round. Making more putts of 8-10 feet or less results in more birdies, more saved pars and fewer double-bogeys. Statistically, more PGA Pros rank in the Top 10 and Top 50 on the money list who also rank in the Top 10 in Putting from four to eight feet versus those who ranked in the Top 10 in Driving Distance, Greens in Regulation or Driving Accuracy. Practicing with the Dead Zero Putting Disk can help you gain confidence to become a better putter and save you strokes on the course.
Here are a few Golf Digest articles from top touring pros about the importance of putting:
- Ernie Els notes the role of confidence in his personal checklist of key putting tips.
- Geoff Ogilvy discusses his routine for practicing putting from 8 feet or less.
