Master the Putt

The key to a great putt is technique. “You want a solid stance—shoulder width or a little wider,” says Laird. “Concentrate on your legs and lower half not moving at all. It should all be done with your shoulders and arms.” For the grip, Laird has a helpful tip. “Grip it like a tube of toothpaste with the lid off—you don’t want to squeeze the toothpaste out,” he says.

Before you start your first round, take a few balls and roll some practice putts to get the pace of the green. “That’ll give you confidence if you know you can roll those 30-footers in,” Laird says. so show up early.
