The putting formula
You’ll have heard people calling putting an art form and a science, but which is it? In this article, we’re breaking down how putting works and how to do it well.
So, you’re standing over your ball with a flatstick in hand and you know you’re going to need to give it a bit of welly. How confident are you? If you aren’t sure about your line or your pace then you may well find yourself staring at a lengthy second or – dare I say – third putt.

A lot of that confidence comes from feel – do you prefer it to be firm or soft off the face at impact? You’ll also find a big boost in consistency; knowing exactly how the ball is going to roll after you hit it so that you can trust your stroke from any distance.
We’ll be happy to help you putt with control and confidence through our coaching, but a helping hand from our friends at PING certainly won’t hurt matters. PING’s 2021 putter range actually combines this firm and soft feel via a dual-durometer insert, which means you have a firm feel to control distance on longer putts and a soft layer in front of it for precision from within striking distance. On top of that, the tungsten weighting gives you a high MOI for optimal forgiveness and that all-important consistency.
Between our professional guidance and PING’s industry-leading innovation, we can help you drain more putts and love the look of your scorecard.
