Eyes over the ball

  1. I've notice I've been missing a lot of short puts recently and I wasn't really sure why. I got my putting mirror out and found I've got lazy in my set-up and started leaving my eyes behind and not over the ball.

    I really think this is important to check every now and then and it's real easy to do.

    This is my setup.

    Hope this helps :)

    I have one of these that I keep in the bag and use it during my range work. I need to spend more time with my putting as that's where I tend to lose most of my strokes.

    LOVE my Putting Mirror as well!!!
    It's awesome heading to the putting green and setting up some 10-12 footers.
    Totally fun to drop 50 in a row while others watch in amazement...My mirror gets a workout and I use it at least 2-3 hours a week on the green.

  8. Maybe I should get one of those, only thing I've done before to check my setup is drop a ball from between my eyes and see where it lands. Seems to work for me, but you can never make too many 5 footers.
  9. Nice setup! I think I need one of those.

    I have a very similar mirror by Levelgolf, which I got after watching pros use them. Like you, Alex, I discovered my eyes were too far inside the putting line. I now measure 2.5 putterhead lengths from my toes to the ball. A ball dropped from the bridge of my nose would land on the putted ball. The shaft feels very upright, and my head on top of the ball, however, I now know my eyes are over the start line precisely. I use a straight back and through stroke. If I can strike the right pace, I know it's going in.
