Reader: How to make Face-On Putting even better
Gary McCord's story on Face-On putting
--used by the great Sam Snead, but by few players these days--generated several letters, but only this one from Hawaii had some instruction of its own. McCord's story was part of January's Golf Digest Fun Issue.
I enjoyed Gary McCord's article re: Face-On putting. I have been utilizing this putting style for several years and it has solved my yips. I have two suggestions that I would like to share: First, try a longer putter. I use one that comes to my lower chest, less strain on your back. Second, try the right foot back and the left forword. I find on longer putts my swing is hampered by my right thigh.
