Putting tip from the fringe

Here’s a putting tip that is going to help you putter better from the fringe of the putting green.

First, check for any surface irregularities which may affect the natural roll of the ball.

Conditions usually permit a normal low to the ground putting stroke, but when you find a thick spot along your route, try this…

Lift the putter on the backswing and hit down on the ball. This will cause the ball to bounce slightly with overspin and run unaffectedly through the thickness.

Otherwise, just go through normally as if it’s a normal putt, after all, we don’t want you to forget to focus on getting the ball into the hole!
