Welcome back Champs and Champettes! We are talking a little bit more about finding your brace in your putt. I've got a couple more things to add from part one so let's get into it.

Now I want to talk a little bit more specifically exactly about the weight shift. The most common thing I see that kind of screws people up is being a little too touchy with the back foot. Actually there's one player in mind that I'm thinking of, I'm not going to call him out or say anything, but he's got a really good Putt. His line is always really good but ihe's always short. He hits cage a lot. Now luckily these are birdie putts because this kid can bomb, but he's missing a lot of birdie putts and I think it has, well I'm very confident, that it has a lot to do with him being a little too touchy. He comes down a little too much with his putt. I went through this myself, last not last year the year before, and it really confused me.

The alteration I found which is, I don't think it's a hot take but I don't see a lot of people do it, this really helped me, was to stop having my heel up actually and to get the heel down. Now what does that do? By getting my heel down I feel a lot more confident with with my footing. Whether it's muddy, or slippery, or uphill or downhill.

The second reason I really like this idea is like I said earlier, we don't need to get that much height on our putts. What we really need is more drive toward the basket, and when I have my heel down, and you can again stand up in the kitchen and set yourself up and do a weight shift. Do a weight shift with your heel up off the ground, and then do one with your heel down. Now what you're going to feel with your heel down and with us moving forward is your inner quadricep. Your medial quadricep is going to engage and it's adds a lot of power to your Putt, and it adds kind of like a rudder to your putt. You have a much stronger foundation compared with having your heel way up off the ground. If you get it down you get that inner quadricep engaged. When your heels up like this your really only activating the lateral part of your calf, your gastrocnemius is the scientific term for your calf. Having your heel down in your putt and having your front foot pointed forward, of all the principles, of all the things I've learned through my own mistakes, those two the second and third principle here might be the most valuable. We'll see as we go on.

Now one thing I wanted to add and talk about in this part two was putting uphill and downhill. We mentioned in part one how hitting your brace early and late can affect your height, and now that gets exaggerated when we're putting uphill or downhill. So I've got the best thing I could find in the gym around here. Essentially I'm trying to simulate putting uphill, and what's going to happen when we're trying to find our brace when putting putting uphill is that we're going to hit it a little early. We're going to feel like we've got enough pressure to get it there and everything's going to work out, but because we're going to hit our brace early they're going to come out a little high. We're going to have to be a little more bit more patient with finding our brace when putting putting uphill.

If we switch to putting downhill we're going to find it early and we've all been there. Where we putt and it's like it's snuck up on us. Now often times this causes misses low because again we find our brace too early and we have to let go in order to to stop the momentum, and stop from falling forward.

Thank you for the support, we're just trying to help. These are ideas that have really helped me with my game and we're just trying to share this with you guys. So stick around, we got principal number four coming up, we got some pretty interesting stuff to come talking about grip and ways to test your grip, and ways to implement your grip, and an easy little drill to do. So until then, until we see you on principal number four check you later!
