How to improve your long putts

When it comes to golf, any one shot can trip you up. If you have a least favorite shot or least favorite hole, chances are you need to take the time to practice it, and gain confidence. Long putts are one such shot. Most people hate them as these shots typically seem easier to take in one long putt, but usually wind up costing people two or three. Working on your lag putting can be a great way to help your game. Here are some tips for long or lag putts, on how to get the ball as close as you can.

Keep your goals in mind. Set a goal of getting the ball within 6 feet of the hole. Don’t just aim for the hole, aim for the area around the hole. Chances are this way, you’ll get a lot closer.

If the shot seems like it’s too long, it most likely is. Rather than trying to make it in one, and actually taking four swings to get it, hurts your game, so be realistic. If the shot seems impossible, slow down and set a goal to make it in two. Remember, the closer you get it, the easier the final put. That’s what you’re setting yourself up for.

Have your shot be like more of a chip. If you do a more stroke like putt, your ball more than likely won’t get close enough to the hole. Try taking a chip putt to get it closer. Chips give the golf ball the little extra push they need.

Always practice. Spend time on the putting green and work on your lag putts. Practice which stance is right for you, and try different common putting distances vs. long ones. Hit your golf balls from three different distances and see how different each shot feels. Take note of how your stance chances for each, and replicate that out on the green.

In working on your stance, get closer to the ball. If you’re closer, you’re more likely to hit the ball into your goal area. Try to avoid the typical crouched position used for normal putting.

Give yourself a challenge. Find the most difficult put you can find, with your remote-controlled golf caddy, and practice there. Help yourself develop a great technique, and see what you do differently for shorter or longer puts. Work on your confidence during practice, and you’re sure to see improvement during a game.

Getting comfortable is the key to improving your game and your long, or short putts. Take the time to practice them from all different angles and see what works best for you.

The Benefits of Fall Golf

It’s well acknowledged that fall is one of the best times to play golf. The courses aren’t as full, the weather isn’t too hot. And on the right day, you might even have the course to yourself. It’s time to enjoy yourself and your remote golf caddy, work on your game and enjoy the feeling of fall in the air.

Pros of Fall Golf

Now that the summer season is over, and courses are less crowded, some golf courses might start to offer deals to entice people to get out on the green. It can be more affordable to go out and play a round of golf in the fall. Spend the time focusing on your game and working on your technique. You likely won’t have people lined up behind you on the course, so it’s the perfect time to take the chance to focus on your swing.

The other added benefit of golf in the fall, is that lots of golf gear goes on sale in order to make room for spring stock. It’s the perfect time to find new gear, and have the chance to use it on the green. Invest in a remote controlled golf bag and take the time to figure it out and perfect your use on a less crowded golf course. Get in some practice swings with your new gear before cold weather arrives.

It’s the perfect time to get used to near gear, with the less competitive nature of the fall, so that you’re ready for more intense play when spring rolls around.

Cool Weather

With such a hot summer nearly behind us, the cooler temperatures of fall are most welcome. Some players say that they enjoy the cooler playing temperatures because it helps keep them sharp out on the golf course. Another added perk to colder weather is that the course is getting colder at night with colder temperatures, and it’s getting harder. With a harder ground at the golf course, you’re going to get extra roll on your golf ball. As the grass slows down, you won’t have to hunt in taller grass for your ball.

If you love in a beautiful climate, the benefit of playing golf in the fall is that with a less crowded course you don’t feel as rushed. You have more time to take in the beautiful sights and surroundings on the green.

Head out to your local golf course with your remote controlled golf caddy and enjoy some lazy golf games before the colder weather hits, and the courses are covered in snow. Who knows, some of your best days of golf could be yet to come this season.

Practice at the Driving Range

If your swing just hasn’t been feeling right lately, there’s nothing wrong with getting in some time at the driving range. Spending time practicing is the best way to get comfortable with your swing again. The driving range is also a great place to practice your mental game as well as your swing, so that when you’re out on the course again, you’re even more prepared for that difficult shot.

Stretching

It’s super important for your muscles to stretch before you start swinging, whether it’s at the range or at the course. Your body will always respond better to practice if it’s loosened up. Take the time to start with smaller swings, and slowly stretch out your muscles. Try just swinging a club back and forth until you feel warmed up enough. Use your remote control golf caddy to support yourself as you stretch out your leg muscles.

Start swinging

After you’ve warmed up, it’s time to work your way through all of your irons. Try starting with your lowest to your highest, starting with a 9. Take all different shots and get into a groove. Start with chip shots and then slowly work up to taking a swing with your driver.

Taking shots with all of your irons gives you the chance to focus on your swing and realign your stance. If you’re watching the way the ball falls, and realizing that it’s hooked or not, you might need to adjust the way you’re standing.

A great drill to try is to pick three different areas of the range and practice hitting the ball there as if it were a hole on the course. Try to get everything right, your stance, your swing, everything. This will really start to help your swing along, if this is a drill that you can do consistently.

Putting Practice

Some people tend to over look how important putting can be. If you’re at the practice range be sure to devote around 15 minutes just to your putting game. We all know that putting can make or break your game, so take the time to practice it.

Try working on longer putts, like 10 feet, while you’re at the practice range. Line up 10 balls and try putting them from farther away or take the time to focus on your chipping technique while you’re there.

Take Away

One of the most important things you can spend your time practicing at the driving range, is your mental game. It can really disrupt your golf game out on the course, so while you’re busy taking practice swings, work on how you view your game. Take the time to go through your clubs and feel the difference of each one.
