Its a simple drill I've done before. Check it out. GDR23 demostrates the Gate drill.

Ask Gary (GDR23) any questions about it.

Basic thought process:

1. Our eyes are over the ball at address.
2. We are still with our head which never leaves the ball.
3. We are rocking our arms back with the stroke keeping the triangle in both our forearms. Putter is low to the ground and glides. No tension.
4. Following through the ball with two putter club face lengths ensures that the ball is reacting and getting started off the putter face. This follow-through also ensures that we are not jabbing at the ball.

Other tips not in the video:
1. Walking behind the hole gives us a vantage point that our eyes might not see when we are over the ball.
2. Walking towards the hole also gives our brain some feedback on how our feet feel walking up or down a slope.
3. I encourage students to try and miss on the pro-side(high side) letting the ball fall into the hole.
4. Practice a routine and stick to it. Watch the pro's they never deviate from a routine.
5. You have to visualize a spot to start your longer putts or putts with a severe amount of break. Putt to that visualization spot.
6. Make your practice time on the green count. If you are struggling with left to right downhillers as a right-hander find a hole with that break on the practice green.
7. Give a few putters a try. Experiment with your equipment.

I had a lesson with Gary today.

I'm just a few weeks away from getting medical clearance to full swing after my hip replacement.
Since I do have the OK to chip and putt I thought it would be a good idea to have a few lessons to prevent or undo any bad habits I've developed from playing in pain prior to the surgery, which was causing an ever-increasingly distorted swing.

It was a long drive up to Moorpark from South OC but I am happy to say it was completely worth it.
Gary's methods are what I'm comfortable with... reviewing the basics and tweaking, not reinventing my swing. He showed me an easy putting drill that I promise to use. The handy hints for chipping also made a big difference. I've never been a frequent practicer but I am excited to work on it as much as possible before my next lesson. My goal is to be ready for Rams Hill.

Thanks again, Gary. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

Glad to hear you are recovering well, Wendy.

After my pacemaker surgery, I was off golf for 4 months(!). Putting and chipping were how I started getting back into it, until I could start taking full swings.

Of course, I'm not the best example of a "successful" re-entry!! LOL
