Golf Tip: How to be a better putter
To ensure both a good putting stroke and a square putter blade, Royal Mayfair’s Jeremy Lavallee uses a double gate drill. Lavallee starts by putting down two golf tees that are just wider than the putter blade itself. Then he will hit a few putts to see how much the putt is breaking. At the apex of the break — or about half way through the putt — he will put down two more tees a few inches apart. Click here to read the full tip.
