When we're talking about fatal flaws in your golf game,
00:03
you always wanna relate it to a shot.
00:06
A shot that you hit, a shot that you miss,
00:08
there's no flaw that's more fatal than a missed short put.
00:11
You've lost your stroke right there.
00:12
Maybe you hit a bad drive,
00:13
you can always hit a recovery shot.
00:15
You hit a bad iron shot,
00:16
you can get it up and in.
00:18
You miss a put,
00:19
it's not gonna work.
00:20
That shot's gone.
00:20
So, a couple things to think about,
00:22
try an alternative style.
00:24
Think outside the box.
00:26
Maybe a bigger grip on your putter
00:28
just to give you a little different feel,
00:30
and one thing for sure to try
00:32
is positioning your bottom hand in a different direction
00:35
so it's not facing exactly toward the hole.
00:39
This is a saw grip.
00:41
This is a claw grip.
00:42
These are some of the grips you see on the PGA Tour.
00:45
One of them's working great for Adam Scott right now.
00:47
He's got this claw grip.
00:49
Use an alternative style.
00:50
Try a different grip.
00:52
You're gonna find that your short puts
00:53
are gonna be going in the hole before you know it.
