Long Putts at The Open Championship


There’s the short game and at an Open Championship… there’s the not so short game.

WIth large greens, long run-ups and the potential for windy conditions, many players will be turning to their flat sticks from a little farther away from the hole than they are accustomed to this week at Muirfield.

And when you’re staring down a 40-footer with the wind up and the pressure on, a few adjustments to your setup can help ensure you’re making solid contact and rolling the ball close to the hole (and hopefully in the center of the cup).

Dave Phillips, co-founder of the Titleist Performance Institute, shares some advice and thoughts on this topic in the latest installment of his Open Championship tips.
