Welcome to Essential Golf tutorials. Professional golfers Michael Jacobs & Erika Larkin give you some top tips on your putting distance control. These tips will be beneficial for golfers of all skill levels.

Putting distance control is important to strike and roll the ball at the right speed. Consequently, the assessment of the green and your ability to adapt will strongly affect your level of play.

It’s important to make a quiet stroke; being overly wristy will influence your level of play and you could lose control of the club face position. Making a judgement on the strength and distance of your strike will contribute to how far the ball will go.

Putting is about 43 percent of your game, so it’s an important skill to master to perfect your putting distance control.
