The way you hold your putter and set your body is vital for a solid putting foundation. If you’re not gripping the club correctly, you’re setting yourself up for a long day on the greens. Michael Breed and Krista Dunton discuss some of the setup essentials that the professionals have perfected to make their jobs look so easy. A proper setup should include 1) a good, consistent grip with the angles of the putter shaft and your forearms on the same plane; 2) the grip and shaft of the putter leaning slightly forward towards the hole; 3) your eye line focused over the top or back of the ball; and 4) a constant connection between your upper arms and your body.
