Are you freezing? Has your golf game been shut down by extreme cold and frozen tundra. Disgusted and disgruntled, with nothing to do?
Why not take a short reprieve to sunny Florida or someplace warmer nearest you? My wife and I decided to make the great escape to the sunny south. Call us snowbirds, I don’t care, but I prefer smart-birds.
So far, I have played golf once and found the greens to be challenging, so I just got back from a putting clinic. The head pro here was very helpful and helped me a lot. Hopefully, my score will reflect what I learned.
Here are a couple good tips I got:
1. On short putts, grip the putter just a bit firmer with the left hand.
Vise versa if you are a lefty.
2. On long putts, follow through more with the right hand, similar to when you might throw a ball underhanded.
3. Your goal on long putts should be to get close enough, to make it down in 2 putts.
4. Your next goal is make at least 3-4, one putts.
5. Overall goal is get putts to within 29-32 putts overall. Avoiding 3 putts.
6. Last, relax when putting, keep your stance and eye just over and inside the ball; which will get you from rocking back on your heels and keeping your balance and feet firmly planted.

You don’t have to come south to practice the above. Give it a shot on a carpeted room at home.
