Research data shows that where the face angle of your putter is aimed at impact determines where the ball travels. Study the two factors of a solidly struck putt and you’ll discover that face angle determines 83 percent of the starting line while putter path direction determines 17 percent. A square face angle is considerably more important to starting putts on line than putter path!
The putter face angle and path at impact are the two factors that determine the direction the putt will start in. The more important of the two is putter face angle. The breakdown is that approximately 83 percent of the balls initial direction is determined by the face angle at impact and only approximately 17 percent is a result of the putters’ path. The two together determine the direction.
