In this video I’m going to talk to you about the pendulum action when you’re putting. In true sense, what we want to do is to keep the head moving and keep the butt of the club stable.
If the butt of the club starts moving around, we start to actually hinder the ability to create a pendulum, and if you think about how effective a belly putter is or a broom-handle putter is, where this end stays fixed, then the head can move freely, we’re trying to replicate that but with a normal conventional length putter.
So, a nice simple swing thought for that is to try and keep this butt of the club incredibly still and let the head do the work in your putting stroke. And if you take a look at the video you’ll see how that looks.
Take your normal stance, and try and feel as though the butt of the club stays incredibly static and your head is doing all the work.
In summary, to help you keep your effective pendulum, keep your butt of the club incredibly static, think about that broom-handle or belly putter and try and feel as though the head is the piece of the putter doing the movement, not the butt of the club.
