Finding Your Putters Sweet Spot
By: Jeff Austin
The sweet spot is the particular spot that every golf club has, where it hits with pure impact. The shot feels good, looks good and gives the best results.
The sweet spot is a small spot around your clubs center of gravity, when you hit a ball with the sweet spot it goes exactly where you want it to go because the head doesnt move out of alignment with the target.
Statistics show that if you miss the sweet spot by as little as a quarter of an inch you will miss every putt by at least eight feet, the sweet spot is that important to your ability to putt.
On most putters the sweet spot is marked by a line or arrow that has been cut into the topline or the part of the putter you see when you are addressing the ball.
It is not uncommon for this factory mark to be off by a little, so find the sweet spot for yourself and mark it properly.
To find the sweet spot on your putter, hold the putter lightly out in front of you by the thumb and forefinger and allow it to swing easily, hold it in the same position it would be in if you were putting, now tilt the shaft until the bottom of the putter is parallel to the ground.
Using the eraser end of a pencil or some other pointed object, gently tap the putterface until you find the one spot that causes the head to swing back and forth without any twisting of the face, no wobbling and with little or no vibration.
You have found your putters sweet spot; mark it well for reference during play. Making a grove in the top of the putter is one way to mark it; you may want to fill the groove with white paint so it is easier to see.

To a beginning golfer hitting a golf ball seems easy until they try it. Golf can be a sometimes frustrating, and time-consuming game to learn. My recommendation is that players practice patience by not hurrying to the golf course to learn how to play. Do your learning on the practice range where your mind will not be on scoring, but on learning.
Prime Movers-Notice how my upper left arm and chest are connected. It�s this connection that initiates the backswing and encourages the club to be moved by the pivot of the body and not the hands and arms moving independently. In addition to the left arm and chest, movement of the shoulders and back should also contribute to the finish of a powerfully coiled backswing. Don�t ever begin your backswing by lifting your arms or rolling your wrists by themselves.
