In my opinion this is one of the key aspects of the game, as you need to be a good putter to shoot those lower scores!

My most recent study with some of my clients at Chadwell Springs Golf Centre found that:

84% of putts from 3 feet were holed successfully, but...

only 55% of from 6 feet were holed first time.

(Clients handicaps were; 5 hcap, 12 hcap, 18 hcap and 24 hcap)

This confirms that putting is a key aspect to our game as we don't always get ball inside 3 feet when approaching the green. We have great practice facilities at Chadwell Springs Golf Centre, but I also have a great putting mat and Laser to putt your skills to the test too.

What is important within putting?

For me, speed is most important within your putting stroke, because even if we miss a putt to the left or right, with the correct speed we will only have 'tap in' to finish off. 


Set up consistently at address in order to return the club face back to straight

Pace is determined by the length of putt needed

Even swing back and forth 

Ensure the ball is aligned in the middle of the putter

Deliver a smooth repetitive stroke

Use the ladder drill on my YouTube video to practice your speed, this can be found by Clicking Here. Start from the first tee and work your way back to the last tee by putting the ball in first time on each tee peg... Good Luck!

"I had a series of lessons with Danny during the summer/autumn of 2020 and found him to be a great teacher. Extremely patient and always able to find several ways to explain techniques until it ‘clicked’. Full of ideas, calm and engaging."
