Improve your Putting Distance Control

Putt Better – Score Better

I wrote this Article for Play Better Golf Magazine a few years ago on how improve your distance control in putting, which we all know adds up to over half the game. I was looking at Luke Donald stats on putting the other day and on average every round of golf that he plays, he has 7 one putts per round…. Not bad at all!!

Maybe that is why he is at the top of his golf right now…..

Anyway below is the article that I wrote, enjoy the read and adopt the putting routine..



Building an irstinctive link between his eyes and hands has helped Luke become one of the lag putters.

This picture captures him sizing up the putt visually….. and feeling the length of swing needed to take the ball there. Great touch putting is as much about using and trusting your eyes as good technique.

I hope you enjoyed the article, any comments or Questions then please leave a comment below..

Until next time I wish you all the golfing success
