How to Build a Money Stroke

Hinge your wrists slightly going back and keep them hinged forward to produce the right type of stroke. Keep the shaft and left arm in a straight line — never let the putterhead pass your hands.

THE PROBLEM
Your putts tend to hop and skip instead of rolling smoothly toward your target.

THE SOLUTION
Make sure the bottom of your putting-stroke arc occurs at the equator of the ball.

HOW TO DO THAT
Stack a dime on top of a quarter directly behind the ball on your target line (below). Hover you putter over the coins at address, and make your stroke. If your forward stroke is solid, you’ll miss the coins. Don’t cheat by exaggerating a descending blow.
