How To Be A Great Putter

At his performance UK golf coaching studio located in Bournemouth, Dorset, the mechanics of the stroke and the advanced custom putter fitting service is done in his PuttLab. It hosts SAM PuttLab and BalanceLab, multiple high speed cameras and TrackMan. The performance aspect of putting is coached outside on the massive USGA green. Every type of slope is available on this green which runs at tour average speeds enabling players to be coached on a familiar smooth surface.

When it comes to golf putting technique, Chris is not a method coach. He uses technology to understand and use your natural putting technique to make it consistent and repetitive under pressure and to deliver to the results. Chris coaches all aspects of your putting and from experience has determined that predominantly the root cause putting issues stem from poor green reading and speed instead of stroke mechanics.

Chris is regarded as an Artisan of custom fitting putters with 20 years of experience perfecting the specialism


  • A custom putter fitting is no different to buying a tailored suit. There are measurements required to understand your natural putting stroke, data on how you roll the ball, what your mind and eye is doing (through using the Focusband device) and finally to understand what positions your body can and cannot do. All this impartial information is gather together to determine your personal putting identity. This usually takes 2 hours
  • The information collected now empowers you with a baseline of your putting and the reason for your tendencies.
  • A prototype putter is then built and sent to you with all the refinements based upon the findings from the assessment.
  • You now can spend time with this prototype putter to discover its performance on your greens and report back to Chris with your findings.
  • Refinements are then made to the prototype once it has been returned.
  • The process is repeated until your are completely satisfied with it.
  • The final stage is then for you to choose the brand of putter you would like.
  • The putter is then built and sent to you.

Putting Coaching

1.5 Putts Per Hole Or Less Is What Your Coaching Is About

There are three skills to become a good putter. These are:

  • Reading the putting break
  • Starting the ball on the intended line
  • Consistently striking the ball at the correct speed

Green Reading & Speed Selection

In order to determine your skill level at green reading and speed selection, Chris has devised this test which involves the player using the Perfect Putter device to eliminate the player's stroke.

Launch Direction

TrackMan is used to precisely measure in degrees your accuracy at launching the ball consistently at the start line. The data collected will identify your tendencies in various situations ie. slope, pressure.
The variables surrounding these three parameters are measured and rated through a series of tests that Chris has devised from a science based perspective. These include:

  • The 4 types of putting break tests
  • Green reading test
  • Speed control
  • Start line tests
  • Ball Performance test
  • 6D Motion Analysis and Pressure
  • Vision tests
  • Putter Analysis
