CJ: Hey CJ [Getz 00:00:01] from shortgamesecrets.com.
I want to give you your third secret.
Extremely important to pay attention to the fundamentals.
Most often now depending on the player you are when things go wrong, first look to the fundamentals.
Okay? Let's today talk about ball position.
Where should your ball position be? Ultimately putting is the most individual area of the game.
Believe in your method.
I've heard people that say they want it right in the center of their eyes.
Right basically over their nose.
Because of that, it's right at the bottom of your stroke.
It's repeatable, all that stuff.
I've had some people who they want it underneath their left eye, because it's on the upswing and you can catch the ball so it puts perfect roll on the ball every time.
That's my philosophy is that's what I want, but at the end of the day, I want you to develop a solid consistent position for your ball position.
Again, what we're going to do here what I would like to do is if you just kind of had your feet together, right? Take a small step.
Kind of a medium step and you can see that ball is slightly forward of center.
As I bend over and touch the top part of my knees, I'm going to grab a ball just out of my pocket here, and drop it and have it hit right on that ball.
That's where this ball will sit.
Is slightly forward of center for me, because I can catch it on the up slope or upswing.
Putting perfect top spin and my eyes are right over it.
Again, from ball position from this view, what your going to see is as I bend here, right here, left eye i can just do this and if I look down that shaft, that ball should be right underneath my left eye.
I'm in the proper posture to make a repeatable stroke and that is the key to shooting lower scores.
