How to Adopt the Correct Golf Putting Posture

While you crouch over the golf ball to putt, you need to be in the correct position. You should have a slight knee flex in your putting stance. If your knees are locked, you’re straining your back too much.

1

Bend from your waist so that your arms hang straight down.

This position allows your arms to swing in a pendulum motion, back and forth from a fixed point.

2

Hold your arms straight out from your body.

Bend down with those arms outstretched from the waist until your arms are pointing to the ground.

3

Flex your knees a little bit.

You’re in the correct putting posture!

4

Position yourself in relation to the ball.

To figure out where to stand in relation to the ball, place a ball on your forehead between your eyes, bend over, and let the ball drop. Where the ball lands is where it should be in relation to your body.

5

Position your feet so that your heels and shoulders are the same width apart.

You have a margin for error in your stance width, but this is a good place to start.

6

Make your toe line parallel to your target line.

Your toe line should always be parallel to your target line.
