Golf Putting Instructions: Step On The Low Side Of Your Ball-Hole Line When Pacing Off Putts

golf putting instructionsSome of the best golf putting instructions when pacing off putts is to step on the low side of your ball-hole line

The reason why this is some of the best golf putting instructions is that if you step on the high side of your ball-hole line you may very well be stepping on your putting line because the ball must roll to the high side of your ball-hole line to compensate for the slope of the green.

These golf putting tips are even more significant when stepping off longer putts.

Many golfers do quite the opposite and pace off the putt on the high side of the line between the ball and the hole location.

What happens then in too many instances is the shoes will make an imprint into the surface of the green on the aim line, the line on which the putter head must be squarely aligned to compensate for the slope of the putting surface.

This means when the ball is stroked to allow for the break  on a long putt the ball may very well roll over the imprint of the shoes and be thrown off line.

Unfortunately, even a minute and undetectable imprint of a shoe on the surface of a green can impact the pace and line of a putt. It just makes good sense to walk on the low side and avoid such a result.

If you want to improve your golf and lower your golf scores, these golf putting instructions can be very beneficial to you.
