How do you make the perfect putt? Here’s a clue: 2 words, 3 syllables.
It’s “perfect pace.” By saying those 2 words during your putt, you may be able to restore the rhythm to your stroke.
Here’s how it works. As you prepare to make your stroke, think of that phrase and a pendulum. As you swing the putter back, think “per-fect,” 2 syllables. As you swing through, think “pace.” The move will help establish cadence in your putt and enable you to hit the ball solidly and smoothly. It also helps eliminate jerky and abrupt movements in your swing.
Focus more on how you’re going to putt rather than making the putt.
