What’s your putting tempo

  1. I find it funny, when I putt from fringe or long I putt with an even long stroke and get good to ok results, but short (6 ft or under) putts I tend to push or pull while using the same tempo but shorter backstroke length, I also misread speeds. So now I putt short with a quicker snappier putt and have been getting consistently better results. Can anyone relate?

    If it works for you employing a Sneds-like "pop" stroke then keep it going! I try to use a 1-2-3-4stroke. I say to myself "E S P N" and try to mimic the cadence. Back on the E S and thru on the P N.

    I'm a die putter.My tempo is quick and ugly. Although I read putts quite well, I'm usually short. Left 2 on the lip yesterday and had 2 others do a 360 around the hole.Oh well.......

    My stroke and tempo were awful for a long time until I went to club champion and got fit for the correct putter type and toe hang. It made a world of difference in cleaning up my stroke and tempo and I was able to refine it from there. Anyone who hasn't been fitted for the club you use the most, its an absolute must!

    My tempo is attached to my reading backwards from hole to the ball. As I bring my eyes back to the ball I take the club back then thru similar to a pop stroke. I've been more consistent doing this. It prevents me from taking my eyes behind the ball watching my putter head on the takeaway and missing my mark & the putt. Follow through is about 50% shorter than my takeaway on most putts.

    I use a metronome and keep beeps between 75-80 BPM, pretty easy to use a cell phone app to get you going in right direction!
