You may never win a green jacket like Danny Willett, but you can take away two key elements of what makes him such a precise putter. If you can draw a straight line on a spherical object, you're halfway there. And if you can putt the ball consistently so the line stays true for the first 12 inches, you've mastered the other half.
It seems simple -- and according to PGA Professional Chris Czaja, simplifying the putting stroke is the key to making consistent, correct contact between putter face and golf ball. That's what Willett did to perfection all week at Augusta National, and because he was able to make critical putts, particularly in the closing holes on Sunday, he's the 2016 Masters Champion.
" Great insight in the articleChris !! Willett was rock solid. So impressed watching him perform down the stretch". Kevin Williams - Head Coach East Carolina University Womens Golf.
For all the talk about Adam Scott's switch to a more conventional putting method, PGA Teaching Professional Christian Czaja said it was more Scott's ability to keep the ball in play on PGA National's tight fairways and small greens that keyed his Honda Classic victory.
That's all because of Scott's ability to consistently repeat his grip, stance and posture on every shot. And it comes from practicing with a coach who can point out inconsistencies and possible flaws before they wreck your swing.
Excellent teacher. I've been taking golf lessons from different coaches and found right person who understands my game and my swing. Now I can easily play in low 70's and break par in no time. Thanks! Alex Kovalev, NHL
