How to use your kitchen floor to fix your putting stroke

March 23, 2020

Welcome to Home Practice, a 5-part weekly series where one of our GOLF Top 100 Teachers will take you through a series of simple drills you can do, from your home, and still keep your game sharp. This week our host is Jonathan Yarwood, a world-renowned coach, who first-up has some advice on how to improve your putting using the floor.

When it comes to putting, Yarwood says golfers should plan to use the “geometry of the floor” to help align your putterface and body, and get into a square position.

“Putting is 95 percent setup,” Yarwood says.

And the good news is, there’s a pretty simple way to make sure your setup is locked-in.

First, set your putter flush against a tile, and set your body lines parallel to it.


Next, practice arcing your stroke off the line, but making sure the putterface returns to square at impact.
