How to Develop Putting Synchronization to Hole More Putts
The golf swing mechanics shouldn’t be restricted just to the tee box and fairways, but used on the greens to synchronize your putting stroke technique. Putting Synchronization provides the golfer with a stable-type mechanism for a reliable pendulum-style stroke. This allows the golfer to feel more in control and confident with what is the second most critical golf shot on the golf course, the golfer’s putting stroke.
The most critical golf shot the golfer should consider is their approach shot onto the green. This was proven in the Washington University win over Stanford University in the 2016 Women’s NCAA Tournament Championship. The golfer’s approach shot will determine if the golfer will have a make-able one-putt, within 10 to 12 feet, or a two-putt, outside this putting zone. Treat your approach shot like an airborne putt, that includes the chip or pitch shot. The approach shot will be one of the most effective means to lower the golfer’s score and handicap.
The Four Priorities of Critical Golf Shots
The fourth critical golf shot is the golfer’s tee shot. The tee shot has the greater amount of tolerance of the four golf shots, 1) approach shot, 2) putt, 3) layup, and 4) tee shot. This was proven by Jordan Spieth’s tee shot on the 13th Hole at Royal Birkdale at The 146th Open. He was able to find his ball and take an unplayable lie to get up-and-down for par. Like Michael Greller mentioned to Jordan walking off the 13th green, That was a momentum changer.
A great golf coaching philosophy, or course management tactic, is to treat each hole like a dartboard. Your tee shot has the largest degree of tolerance of all golf shots, like the entire dartboard. Your layup shot is the third concentric circle from the bull’s-eye. Your approach shot is the second concentric circle, out from the bull’s-eye. Your putt is, no doubt, the bull’s-eye.
Once on the green, here’s the Putting Synchronization technique you can utilize to hole more putts within ten feet radius. I was able to save my golf game yesterday by shooting a 74 using my approach and putting. Like most golfers, my tee shot wasn’t cooperating very well. I had to compensate with my approach and putting game.
3-Steps to Establish Putting Synchronization
This Putting Synchronization technique isn’t difficult to learn or apply on the green, even under the most pressured putting conditions. The following is the Putting Synchronization process as I detail in my book, The ESPY Golf Swing Coach, in Section 17.3. After reading the line, speed of the green, and gauging the distance, perform the following (for the right-hander):
- Synchronize the left Scapula (shoulder blade) with the left Thenar and Hypothenar (also referred to as the Thenars).
- Use the left Scapula synced with the left Thenars and take the handle of the club and putter head back to the designated point to establish the putting stroke.
- Use the right Scapula synced with the right Thenars and take the handle of the club and putter head toward the target (hole or aim point) to execute your putting stroke.
This is a great pendulum-type putting stroke for the golfer to use to hole more putts and lower their score and handicap. This Putting Synchronization provides the golfer with better confidence for distance and speed control making the putting stroke.
From statistics collected from female college golfers, the women golfers hit 70 percent of the fairways and hit their GIR (Greens in regulation) 50 percent of the time. Statistics from professional golfers on putting are as follows:
- 99% of putts from 3 feet
- 69% of 6-foot putts
- 54% of 8-foot putts
- 31% of putts between 10 and 15 feet
