Putting - Face Angle vs. Club Path


Recommended Posts

Take some time analyzing these two putting paths. Top picture is a severe in-to-out path, while the bottom is severe out-to-in path. Notice that relative to the face the ball is darn near to 90°coming off the face regardless of path. Do your own tests. But I share this to help your putting practice, control the face 1st, worry about path 2nd. You'll make more putts keeping the face on line guaranteed.

It's 90% Mental

Yep face angle is responsible for about 85% of the balls direction off a putter.   I'd probably say speed may be more important than face control but that will be player dependent.
