Releasing the Putter Face

Releasing the putter face is something that is misunderstood by most of the golfing population. It is a common held belief that the putter face should be looking down the target line during the entire stroke. Of course, that's not possible without manipulating the putter face and bending over to 90* with the upper spine. The putter, just in the normal swing, works on an arc which means the putter face is only looking straight down the target line for a split second at impact and then immediately working left and pointing left of the target.

Video Practice Points
  • Just like a full swing, the putting stroke works on an arc and needs a little bit of rotation to release
  • Most golfers try to swing "straight back & straight through" and flip the club in an effort to square the face
  • Don't let the left wrist break down - get a slight rotation of the the left wrist bones to release instead
  • You should feel like the putting stroke works low to the ground
  • The face will point slightly left of the target at the end of the stroke

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

"I started playing at 70 years old, at the beginning I was scoring around 100 plus... Following the RST 5 Step System my scores are in the 80 to 86 range. I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
