Titleist Tips: Improve Your Putting with Proper Posture

From Brandon Stooksbury On March 24, 2020

As Titleist staff member Brandon Stooksbury demonstrates in this video, the way that you position your body and set up to the golf ball has a profound influence on your putting stroke. Proper posture in... putting is similar to the athletic posture you should strive for in the full swing with one notable exception. In putting, no hip turn is necessary, so the knees are less flexed on the putting green.

Slouched posture is a common problem for golfers. When your shoulders get rounded and your back gets hunched, it forces you to get too close to the ball and you effectively get in your own way. Your arms can't swing freely and you either have to rock your body out of the way during the stroke or flip the putter through impact.
