Golf StoriesGolf Tip Video – Barlow’s Putter Path and Alignment Improvement Drill

June 9, 2020by Brian Hurlburt0

Now that we are back on the course playing, we still can learn ways to improve our games, even when we are at home or have other idle times to practice. Putting is a large percentage of your game and score, and today Craig Barlow, High Performance Golf Institute director instruction at Lake Las Vegas, shares with us a drill that will help improve your putting path and alignment. This will lead to better scores and putting stats.

Barlow says the “rail” drill will ensure “that your lines–feet, knees, hips, shoulder, are square to the bottom alignment stick.”

Check out the video for complete information or contact him for personal lessons.
