Putting Tip for Putting downhill

Downhill putts are probably one of the hardest kinds of putts you can face.

Not only is it fast, but also breaks a lot more than even putts or uphill putts.

Most 3 putt greens from above the hole occur through a fear, rather than an actuality, of the ball going too far past the cup. This causes some players to ease up on the stroke and leave still a tricky downhill second putt.

It is most important to get the ball down to the hole and this requires a firm continuing stroke. It doesn’t have to be hard to be firm…

…Naturally, you don’t want to go far past, but a 3 foot uphill putt is much easier than a 3 foot downhiller.
