Todays top tip!

Good putters don't think about hitting a putt. Their goal is to get the ball rolling. The key to generating true roll with minimal bouncing or skidding is to swing the putter slightly upward through impact. You can do it by setting your weight properly at address. Many golfers set up with too much weight forward. But that shifts your upper body over your front foot. Result: a descending strike that can press the ball into the turf, making it hop into the air. Instead, set most of your weight over your back foot. You'll naturally swing the putter back low and follow through higher -- a swing path that gets the ball rolling right away.

Also it does help if you buy one of the new yes putters as they have developed new technology that reduces the bounce off of the face of the club leading to a soother roll.
